Gruppe Painting Raffle will Benefit the Restoration of the Phyllis A
The Phyllis A Marine A Association is excited to announce that, through a partnership with the State of the Art Gallery, a very significant Emile Gruppe painting has become available and will be raffled as a benefit fundraiser.
The restoration of this 1925 fishing vessel, built for Albert Arnold, is the oldest former fishing vessel in Gloucester harbor. Arnold’s family migrated from Michigan in 1910 along with other families including the Tysvers, Dahlmers, Shoares and others whom were referred to as the “Michigan Bears” and they used a special method of fishing called gillnetting working out of East Gloucester.
“Shoares Wharf” was located on East Main Street and is now part of a private residence. This painting was completed in the early 1930’s and shows another gillnetter tied to the dock along with a smaller fishing vessel. Measuring 20″x24″, this painting has been recently restored and framed.
Never seen by the public, this painting has had ownership by Emile Gruppe, Walker Fielding and Joseph W Moore with an appraisal value of $14,000.
Only two hundred tickets will be sold, at $200 each, to raise $40,000. Monies raised beyond the appraisal value will go directly to the Phyllis A to support the restoration of this historical vessel.
Purchase tickets at the State-of-the-Art Gallery – 4 Wonson Street on Rocky Neck. Contact Roger @ 978/395-1783 or Phyllis A Marine Association @978/283-9292. Or click the button below.
The painting will be available for viewing at the Phyllis A Marine Association’s annual party on April 6th, at the Gloucester Fraternity Club, Webster Street. (Link to tickets also below.)
A Preview Party and Raffle Drawing will be held on June 6th at the Gloucester House Restaurant.
Otherwise to view the painting, please contact Roger Armstrong for special viewing.Everyone at the Phyllis A would like to thank Roger Armstrong and his Gallery, and Lenny Linquata and the Gloucester House for this exciting and wonderful opportunity.

The restoration of the Phyllis A continues in earnest at Gloucester Marine Railway. This week the iconic red pilot house, spars, and engine were removed. She is being lightened up before coming off the rails and then picked up on the big blue travel lift. There is a spot waiting for the Phyllis A in the parking lot, so she can have more extensive work done without tying up the railway. We are actively seeking volunteers to help with her restoration and to help with mailing and other office type work too. Please come by the Steel Drive behind Fosters on Saturday 8-4 to help support the Phyllis A’s restoration, while getting rid of your unwanted steel.

What a difference a day(or in this case a week) makes. These photos of the Phyllis A were taken 6 days apart. The snow storm was March 5, the lovely sunny day March 11.
The board of directors meeting was March 15. Now I have to say, this is a group of people who know how to have a meeting! Gloria Parsons greeted us in the morning with
fresh home made cinnamon rolls and fruit, and of course coffee and tea. Then for lunch Gloria made some wonderful homemade stews, salad, and to die for homemade cream puffs!
Gloria is a seriously good cook! I think I’m going to gain a bit of weight on this board.
Among the topics for the board meeting was planning for public events to be held in April. Events will be posted soon. I know many of the Phyllis A events feature
Gloria’s cooking – well worth the trip if just for that!
In my travels this week I found lots happening down at the Gloucester Marine Railway despite the cold weather. The crews have been busy doing winter work
like sanding hulls,and repairing bilge pumps. On Saturday, the Adventure had a crew on board to clean the bilge and salt water wash the forecastle to prepare for
the installation of bunks. The Adventure will have people on board most days from 9 to 3 doing the carpentry world. The Phyllis A’s crew were also taking advantage
of the ‘warm’ (30 degree) weather and dis some salt water washing of her decks. I’m sure anyone who wanted to volunteer to help with any of the maintenance and
restorative projects for these historic boats would be most welcomed.
