An Interview with Ana Lis Salotti, Spanish translator of The Narrow Edge, the award-winning book by Deborah Cramer, under the Spanish title Volando a orillas del mar: El viaje épico de un ave playera que une continentes.
“…Deborah has a unique writing style that I tried to capture. It often feels like rolling waves landing on the beach: she develops concepts gradually, builds them up and gives them strength from within, with depth. She rolls out her writing slowly but powerfully, carrying the same depth from the beginning, leaving readers stirred but also with a feeling of hope and peace. It’s similar to the feeling a scientist must have observing birds on the immense beaches of Patagonia, or what ordinary people feel when we think about the delicate balance between shorebirds’ epic migrations and all the habitats they depend on…” excerpt from Ana Salotti the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network interview

The Art of Winslow Wilson & Pico Miran: Two Artists – One Life
June 8 – July 8, 2019
Rockport Art Association and Museum
12 Main Street, Rockport, MA
There are about forty Winslow Wilson (1892-1974) paintings in the exhibit and a new catalogue. I look foward to considering his work in person.
Back in February 2017, I wrote about Wilson/Miran in response to a GMG query from the artist’s granddaughter, Claudia Wilson-Howard, and her painstaking research and writing about his mysterious life and forgotten art, and filled in more context. Her excellent work is the genesis for the museum show and rediscovery of the artist. Wilson was a member and teacher at the Rockport Art Association. For local readers, Claudia’s online catalogue about his work www.winslowwilson.com helpfully provides some Gloucester addresses associated with Wilson.
I added these: 21 Est 15th Street, 154 East 39th Street, Carnegie Hall, 3 Washington Square North in Greenwich Village, Woodstock, N.Y., and Lime Rock, CT.

seARTS Art on the Rocks Opening Reception
The Society for the Encouragement of the Arts (seARTS) proudly announces its twelfth anniversary of partnership with the Bass Rocks Golf Club for the Annual seARTS Art on the Rocks Program. This year’s show presents 40 works by 28 artists from Cape Ann and beyond, at its opening reception on June 12. The opening provides a chance for seARTS members along with the general public to enjoy superb art in an elegant club setting overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
The program is a year-round exhibition, showing and selling the work. The fresh and bold work of the 2019 show balances a body of returning artists with new.
Among the newly enrolled artists (from Cape Ann unless otherwise indicated) are Andrew Anderson-Bell (Ipswich), Kathleen Chrzanowski (North Billerica), Melissa Cox, Kristine Fisher, Marion Hall, Patricia McCarthy, Jim Murphy (Ashfield), Karen Nastuk (Danvers), Mary Rose O’Connell (Billerica) and Debbie Shirley (Boxford).
Returning to the show from previous years are Joan Bediz, Ted Bidwell, Matt Cegelis, Michele Champion (Ipswich), Katherine Coakley, Jeff Crawford, Rob Diebboll, Anita Freeman (Durham NH), Larry Grob (Weston), Olga Hayes, Kirk Larsen (Hicksville, NY), Nancy LeGendre, Michael Oleksiw (Beverly), David Piemonte, Mary Rhinelander, Judy Robinson-Cox, Deb Schradieck and Marny Williams, all from Cape Ann unless otherwise indicated.
We are also planning to feature an on-line catalog of the juried art works available for sale, for those unable to attend the reception. Details will be announced soon.
Responsible for the show’s thoughtful and lively selection of art is this year’s jury, consisting of Richard Caturano, a partner in the Boston Office of RSM US LLP (RSM) and an avid art collector, Janice Charles, owner and manager of Charles Fine Arts, Gloucester, and Ted Charles, President of the Board of Directors of the Copley Society, which represents over 300 artists.
We will also be honored to welcome Nathan Lewis, Director of Exhibitions and Public Programs at Montserrat College of Art, as a new voice in a panel discussion, “The Changing Art Audience,” moderated by Maureen Aylward, Communications Consultant and Sustainability Educator and Adjunct Professor at Endicott College. The panel will include Jan Charles and Jacqueline Ganim-DeFalco, seARTS Advisor and Chair & Co-Founder of Celebrate Wearable Art. Plans are in the works to have the discussion documented by 1623 TV as a live performance.
The jury will award honors that will be announced at the event. Awards are sponsored by Cape Ann frame shops.
