So Joey asked about the Parsons Street murals

 

 

Last year Joey wondered about the wall murals on Parsons (walkway between Main and Rogers) added after the 350ft’ street temporary mural.

You can listen to Joey here: GloucesterCast 243 Taped 9/25/17 Timestamped 43:38 Parson’s Street Mural

The Parsons Street wall murals were created by a lot of people including fine artists, teachers, and kids: Jason Burroughs, Laura Donworth, Kyra Moyer, Aiden Symes, Avery Mcniff, Teen Artist Guild, and Cape Ann Art Haven summer kids. One request from the building owner was that they include a reference to Gloucester’s Man at the Wheel as part of the overall composition. The long mural features iconic Gloucester architecture, history and themes (see the great whale!) . The Man at the Wheel depiction was pulled out and featured on its own; locals aware of the former owner’s affiliation with Sam Adams enjoyed the extra nod. Photos above are from 2015.

Cat Ryan submits-

Hi Joey,

Since the first announcement, we now have 10 younger Gloucester artists signed up for the inaugural Thanksgiving Break POP UP ART FAIR on November 28, 2015 at the Hive from 4-8pm.

So far that’s representation from GHS alumni years 2006, 2007, 2011, 2012, and 2015. Pretty good so far!

We hope more artists will sign up and can’t wait to see what they do. Spread the word! Contact Pauline at paulinebresnahan@hotmail.com to add your name to the growing list of exhibitors. We are looking for artists working with any media and/or creative service. Writers, musicians, documentarians, performers, printmakers—who is out there?

Friends and family: please share the fair and save the date. And thanks Joey for the first post—it truly helped to get the news out and encourage sign ups.
