The prolific artist Sam Nigro turns oars and rudders everyday into beautiful pieces of art. Many businesses and homes over the years have been recipients of oars to hang and display.
He took a picture of the Sylvina W. Beal leaving Gloucester for rehabilitation in Essex and turned it into this beautiful piece of art painted on an antique rudder.
The Schooner Sylvina W. Beal is the oldest existing auxiliary knockabout fishing Schooner in North America. She was built in 1911 in the Adams Yard in Boothbay, Maine. She currently sits in the creek in Essex as Harold Burnham prepares the drawing and wood required for her rehabilitation. Donate to the rehabilitation of Sylvina W Beal, LLC, P.O. Box 541, Essex, Ma. 01929.
