As David Brooks and crew were dismantling the tree, the lobstermen who bid on them were loading the traps onto trucks. The men paid handsomely for the traps, with profits from the bidding going to help support next year’s one and only #GloucesterMA Lobster Trap Tree.

Last night the opening for the fabulous show featuring the Art Haven Lobster Trap Tree Artist’s Buoys was held at the Charles Fine Arts Gallery. The buoys are painted by some of Cape Ann’s finest artists and are displayed either with works of art by the artist or with paintings that correspond in some way to the buoy.
The buoys are on display through the weekend of 20th-21st and people can call the gallery to place bids. Charles Fine Arts Gallery is located at 196 Main Street, Gloucester, and is open Tuesday through Sunday from 1pm to 6pm, or by appointment (978-559-7762).
The Cape Ann Art Haven Lobster Trap Tree awesome fun family buoy auction event is Friday, January 26th, from 5pm to 8pm at Crusieport.
Hope all had a wonderful Christmas Holiday yesterday. I must have been a good girl with Santa, AKA, Rick getting me a new EOS 7D Mark II camera. Can not wait to go out and photograph.
Love these slippers that my sister in law wore.
Our one of a kind Lobster Trap Tree at twilight on Monday evening.
Thank you to Sheree Zizak, owner of the Beauport Hotel, who shared that the bride and groom that braved Saturday’s snowstorm to have photos taken in front of Lobster Trap Tree are Molly Ross and Ryan Stokes. Molly and Ryan held their reception at the beautiful Beauport Hotel.
Many of us marveled at how relaxed were the wedding party, especially the bride and bridesmaids, wearing sleeveless dresses and gold heels in the slush and freezing snow. Art Haven’s program director Cathy Kelley, on the spur of the moment, quickly painted a buoy with wedding rings and the date, and David Brooks presented the buoy to the happy couple. Congratulations Molly and Ryan!
