WELCOME TO CAPE ANN!

O

n behalf of the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, I’m so pleased to introduce the 2019– 2020 Cape Ann Guide & Directory. Whether you are a first-time visitor or a long-time resident, this Guide will be an invaluable resource as you navigate Cape Ann and its many facets, including art, cuisine, music and, of course, its maritime history. Within the following pages, you’ll find a comprehensive introduction to the sights, sounds and services of this beautiful section of Massachusetts’ North Shore. On vacation? Keep the Guide close—it’s an exceptional planning tool. Relocating to Cape Ann? The Guide will acquaint you with everyone you need to know as you plan your move. Already living or working here? Enjoy the revised Directory and new features while joining me in welcoming those who are about to experience Cape Ann’s charm and hospitality. Local businesses are the economic backbone of this community and help define its character. The Chamber proudly represents this character and spirit. We encourage all readers to use this Guide & Directory as you shop, dine, reserve a room or cottage, book services or enjoy a myriad of entertainment options. It’s a colorful and informative resource for understanding the Cape Ann community. I am honored to serve as the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce President for 2019. The Cape Ann Chamber, established in 1922, is dedicated to the economic well-being of the region, with 1,000 member businesses in Essex, Gloucester, Manchester-by-theSea, Rockport and throughout the North Shore. Its mission is to serve as the principal voice of business while working to enhance the economic environment and quality of life for all who live, work in or visit Cape Ann. This mission provides critical guidance to me, the Chamber Board of Directors, and the Chamber staff, to ensure we stay focused on providing maximum value to our members and the Cape Ann community. 2019 brings a revitalized commitment to our three main platforms: promotion of member businesses and the region, economic development, and education. The special Cape Ann License Plate ties these initiatives together. The design represents all four Cape Ann communities and is a great way to champion the region as the proceeds are reinvested in the community through a non-profit organization: the Cape Ann Community Foundation (on whose board I also serve). More information, including the RMV link to order these colorful and popular plates, may be found at lovecapeann.com.

The beach is perfect way to start your day, followed by a visit to the downtown shops and galleries.

During May through October, there are many options for exploring the Essex River. Glide with the tide on a kayak tour, or, if stand up paddleboarding piques your interest, rent a board or take a lesson. If fishing is more your speed, stripers are a favorite catch aboard local charters. Daily narrated river cruises describe the area’s history, exceptional bird-watching, wildlife and locations of past Hollywood movie sets. For an unforgettable experience with family and friends, charter a private tidal beach clambake and dine on a sandbar. The sunsets are glorious. Your options abound on land as well: yoga or hiking, biking and bird watching your way through miles of conservation trails will connect you to the great outdoors—and you can take part in nature workshops, too. If golf’s your game and you’re up for a challenge, play the nine holes at Cape Ann Golf Course. The par 3, 7th hole has been recognized in North Shore Golf Magazine as one of the “Top hardest holes on the North Shore.” History buffs will enjoy two amazing historic collections: the hands-on exhibits at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum, which tell the story of how this CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

Walking to the beach is very popular—families strolling to Singing Beach is a sure sign of summer.

As Gloucester moves forward, it honors its past. Fishermen still head out to sea each morning and battle the unpredictable waters. (The Fishermen’s Memorial will tell you more.)

ROCKPORT W

HEN DESCRIBING THE FOUR TOWNS COMPRISING CAPE ANN, IT’S easy to use the same words over and over: unique, charming, quaint, picturesque, etc. Writers strive to find new descriptions that “paint the picture” (pun intended) and spark your imagination while avoiding the trap of clichés. One wonders, though, if it was actually Cape Ann that inspired those words to begin with. Rockport, located at the tip of the Cape, and its jaw-dropping views of the Atlantic and stunning coastline, will simply take your breath away.

Robert M. Ring Photography

Similar to Gloucester, European settlers in the early 1600s identified the waters off Rockport as a fertile fishing ground and settled there, beginning industries in granite, timber and fishing. If you walk or hike through Halibut Point State Park, you’ll come across the old granite quarries, still impressive today. Pack a picnic because you’ll find a great spot to enjoy more incredible views of the Atlantic. Rockport’s history as a magnet for artists holds true today. You’ll find a thriving community of artists and galleries—not

to mention incredible talent. If you’re a seasoned collector or just beginning, you could spend days roaming in and out of the studios and galleries along Broadway, Dock Square, Main Street and Bearskin Neck, meeting the artists and watching them work. As you roam you’ll also discover excellent restaurants (from hot dog shacks to lobster in the rough and fine dining), weathered storefront cottages and, if you wander Bearskin Neck to the top, you’ll arrive at the ultimate spot for a selfie—with the vast Atlantic as your backdrop.

In the summer, there are free concerts at the Back Beach Bandstand and Fourth of July celebrations; in the offseason there are fun spring and fall festivals. The Shalin Liu Performance Center offers a yearround program of opera, classical, pop, jazz, film and more. And the holidays? “Christmas in Rockport” will become your new family tradition. Festivities include fairs and shows, strolling musicians, and special offers for holiday shopping. Even in the fall and winter, the beaches are no less inviting. There is something so beautiful about a seaside town in the midst of a gentle snowfall. When booking lodging, you’ll have many options to consider—from intimate inns to family-friendly hotels. There’s something for every need, budget and “view preference”— whether overlooking a beach, the Atlantic, or a pleasant, tree-lined side street, you’ll understand how hard it is to avoid the clichés.

10 GREAT THINGS TO DO ON 1

VISIT AN ISLAND

There are several ways to get to Thacher Island, home of Rockport’s iconic Twin Lights, especially during the summer months. The Thacher Island Association, caretaker for the island and its Cape Ann Light Station (a National Historic Landmark), brings visitors to Thacher’s by launch on Wednesdays and Saturdays, late June through August. For the cardio-lovers among us, consider paddling the three mile distance from Rockport Harbor by kayak. Private boaters may also contact the Rockport Harbormaster to reserve one of three moorings located a short distance from the island’s landing ramp. However you arrive, your time on Thacher Island will inspire a lifetime of great memories.

u thacherisland.org.

PACK A PICNIC

You don’t need a fancy basket or a big plan. First, grab a knapsack and some ice packs. Now fill your bag with locally made sandwiches, chips and cold drinks. Where to now? Consider Halibut Point State Park in Rockport. Coolidge Reservation in Manchester-by-the-Sea or Stage Fort Park and Ravenswood in Gloucester are popular spots as well. How about a walk through the Cox Reservation for a picnic at the edge of the Essex River? You may need to pack more than one basket!

FIND A TREASURE

Rockport’s Bearskin Neck is a vacationing shopper’s dream. For generations, this cozy neighborhood of shops, galleries and old lobster shacks, surrounded by extraordinary ocean vistas, has enchanted visitors and provided unique gifts, souvenirs and gallery upon gallery of artwork. When you’re exhausted from shopping, rest, relax and restore at one of Rockport’s seaside cafes.

HONOR CAPE ANN’S HISTORY

Start at Stacy Boulevard in Gloucester and gaze at the iconic Gloucester Fishermen’s Memorial statue overlooking the harbor. Nearby find the Memorial Plaques, listing the thousands lost at sea during Cape Ann’s nearly 400 years as a fishing community. A short walk by the tulip and flower gardens leads you to the magnificent Gloucester Fishermen’s Wives Memorial. If you venture farther into the downtown area, note the historic markers along the way for a fascinating look at what once was, and still is.

In the spring look for special rates on lodging as the new season gets underway. In autumn, watch for lodging rate decreases, and special sales in the seasonal shops. Considering a new holiday tradition or romantic winter weekend? You’ll find get-away packages and holiday events that are fun for all. Cape Ann’s beauty, arts, dining and music are here for your enjoyment year-round.

APPRECIATE THE ARTS

Art in all its forms abounds on Cape Ann and an observant explorer will discover new works being created at every turn. Cape Ann’s maker community is alive and thriving and you’ll find their hand-made treasures at local shops, marketplaces and festivals. Art colonies and galleries offer workshops, classes and special exhibits, and the works of Cape Ann’s famed artists—past and present—are on display where you might not expect them, including area banks and city and town halls. How many can you find as you create your own personal Cape Ann art trail? You’ll be delighted and inspired.

RAINY DAY ACTIVITIES

Don’t let a little rain dampen your Cape Ann vacation. The galleries, exhibits and special programs at Cape Ann Museum, Manchester’s Manchester Historical Museum and the Essex Historical Society & Shipbuilding Museum offer a welcome refuge from any storm. Maritime Gloucester’s interactive indoor and outdoor exhibits along the harbor are another great option in all kinds of weather and for visitors of all ages. Hearing the call of the candlepin? Try your hand at bowling New England candlepin-style at Cape Ann Lanes— always a fun venue rain or shine.

Recreational anglers will find abundant opportunities to fish Cape Ann’s waters all year long. Fishing charters large and small operate April through October out of every Cape Ann harbor and are expert at finding the prime fishing grounds. Surf casting from Bass Rocks or Pebble Beach or Gloucester’s Dog Bar breakwater is another delightful way to spend a Cape Ann day any time of year. Local bait, tackle and marine supply stores will take care of anything you need for a fun day of fishing

CAPE ANN’S ARTISTIC MUSES, PAST AND PRESENT

BY KAREN RISTUBEN

S

OMETHING IN THE CAPE ANN WATER—AND THE GRANITE, AND THE light—has touched creative spirits for hundreds of years. Long a mecca for artists and artisans, inventors and innovators, Cape Ann enjoys an abiding culture of visual art, literature, poetry, dance, theater, and music often inspired by—and rooted in—the magic, mysteries, and muses of Cape Ann.

CAPE ANN ART COLONIES: THEN AND NOW Cape Ann’s art colonies of the 19th and early 20th centuries welcomed artists arriving for the summer months to live and work in low-cost housing and dockside studios. The many grand seasonal hotels of the time supported the artists by providing patrons, exhibit space and performance venues, while areas of Rocky Neck, Rockport, Annisquam, Lanesville and Magnolia were “colonized” by artists across all disciplines. Painting outdoors (en plein air), writing poetry, composing music, and staging theater events all were enriched by artists working in small creative communities—and shar-

ing the highs, lows, and impulses of the creative process. Today, hundreds of artists still live, work and thrive across Cape Ann and so the concept of the artist colony remains, just in a different form. The grand hotels are gone, coastal property values are out of range for many artists, and finding affordable live/work space can be challenging. Yet along with Cape Ann’s unique creative energy, the region holds an uncommon concentration of arts organizations, membership associations, writers’ groups, collaborative performance spaces, galleries, cultural districts, and artist residencies which collectively foster creative growth, collaboration,

and art sales to support a contemporary Cape Ann-wide artist colony. Today, Cape Ann artists stand on the shoulders of their forebears, supported by a Cape Ann culture that at once values invention, authenticity and creative risk-taking. Cape Ann’s visitors and residents are encouraged to experience and find inspiration in the historic and current offerings of Cape Ann arts, culture, and creativity. Enjoy the following overview!

VISUAL ARTS: PAINTING, SCULPTURE, DESIGN, PHOTOGRAPHY, FILM The number of renowned visual artists whose work reflects the Cape Ann experience is far too long to list, yet popular highlights include Edward Hopper’s iconic Gloucester houses, Marsden

Hartley’s abstracted boulders of Dogtown, Fitz Henry Lane’s luminist harbor paintings, and Winslow Homer’s prints and drawings from Ten Pound Island. In addition to Hopper, Ashcan School artists Robert Henri and John Sloan spent their summers painting in Gloucester. Other notable 19th and 20th century Cape Ann painters include William Morris Hunt, Childe Hassam, John Twachtman, Frederick Mulhaupt, Frank Duveneck, Cecilia Beaux, Emile Gruppe, Stuart Davis, Mark Rothko, Nell Blaine, Bernard Chaet, Milton Avery, Barnett Newman, William Meyerowitz and Theresa Bernstein. The granite quarries of Cape Ann inspired extraordinary sculpture by

Cape Ann Symphony.

Today, Cape Ann artists stand on the shoulders of their creative forebears, supported by a Cape Ann culture that at once values invention, authenticity and creative risk-taking Lanesville’s Walker Hancock, Paul Manship, George Demetrios and others, now stewarded by the Manship Artist Residency and Cape Ann Museum. On Gloucester’s Stacy Boulevard, Leonard Craske’s symbolic Man at the Wheel sculpture is Gloucester’s cherished centerpiece of public art, in honor of fishermen lost at sea from 1623–1923. And Anna Hyatt Huntington’s famous Joan of Arc stands watch at the American Legion Hall on Washington Street. Cape Ann’s Folly Cove Designers, led by artist and children’s book author Virginia Lee Burton, was a remarkable guild of textile designers—mostly women—who worked together from 1941 until 1969. The largest collection of their work is found in the glorious Cape Ann Museum. And Gloucester’s historic City Hall boasts WPA-era murals by Charles Allen Winter and his contemporaries. Not sure where to begin? Two interactive trails help find specific points of cultural interest: the Rocky Neck Historic Art Trail identifies 12 key walkable locations where artists lived and worked from 1850–1950, and Harborwalk’s inCAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

teractive markers highlight Gloucester’s seaport industry, culture and people. Today, Cape Ann artist collectives, member organizations, museums and contemporary galleries display and promote the work of hundreds of visual artists. Many artists and artisans welcome visitors to their own galleries and studios. They enjoy the engagement with visitors and love to spark a conversation. Whether located at artist-owned galleries or collectives, Cape Ann’s exceptional artists, designers and arts institutions comprise a vibrant and diverse Cape Ann artist colony.

LITERATURE AND POETRY As in the visual arts realm, a wealth of literature and poetry reflects the culture of Cape Ann. A few prominent examples are Judith Sargent Murray, early women’s rights advocate, essayist, playwright and poet, who lived most of her life in Gloucester; Rudyard Kipling, whose research for Captains Courageous was rooted in Gloucester’s fishing culture; and Gregory Gibson,

renowned author of several books, including Goneboy: A Walkabout. The preeminent Gloucester Writers Center is “a working writers center in a working town” housed in the East Main Street home of Gloucester’s first poet laureate, Vincent Ferrini. A few doors away is GWC’s Maud/Olson Library, open to the public and housing more than 4,000 volumes of acclaimed poet Charles Olson’s source materials. Olson and Ferrini, who lived in and wrote about Gloucester, share a candid literary backbone with prolific author and local historian Joe Garland as resolute ambassadors of Cape Ann’s spirit and authenticity. Today’s Cape Ann writers colony can be found in the Gloucester Writers Center, in The Other Cape blog, at Eastern Point Lit House and at T.S. Eliot House. They join area libraries in keeping Cape Ann’s vibrant literary tradition and practice in the public domain through workshops, readings, storytelling events and writers residencies. Henry Ferrini, co-director of Gloucester Writers Center, offers: “Night and day and in all weather, from CAPE ANN GUIDE & DIRECTORY 2019–2020

PERFORMING ARTS ON CAPE ANN: MUSIC Cape Ann’s music scene is as varied as its landscape, from classical to homegrown blues and jazz to traditional sea shanties. Founded in 1952 as a local orchestra offering “the music you love by the people you know”, the Cape Ann Symphony is now a world class professional orchestra performing in multiple venues across the North Shore and beyond. Cape Ann’s iconic performing arts organization Rockport Music presents the Rockport Chamber Music Festival, now in its 38th year. Rockport Music has expanded its year-round, award-winning programming—most of which takes

place in the state-of-the-art, acoustically-perfect, waterfront Shalin Liu Performance Center—to include classical, jazz, folk, pop, and world music, as well as a film series and HD broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera and England’s National Theatre. This concert hall itself is a reason to visit and a gem to behold. Many exceptional musicians have launched their careers on Cape Ann or have landed here and made it their home. All find a grassroots community of creatives and a wildly enthusiastic audience. Cape Ann has been home to jazz trumpeters Herb Pomeroy and Sylvester Ahola, renowned singers Laura Nyro, Paula Cole, Mari Martin, Megan Wolf, and Chelsea Berry, and composer Robert Bradshaw. Dave Sag’s Blues Party holds forth every Thursday night at the Rhumb Line with some of the best Boston-area musicians in residence. And a host of extraordinary musicians frequently perform across Cape Ann, including David Brown, Jon Butcher, Allen Estes, Fly Amero, Brian King, and Gloucester’s beloved and legendary Willie “Loco” Alexander.

DANCE Rockport’s Windhover Center for the Performing Arts and Gloucester’s Movement Arts Gloucester Massachusetts (known as MAGMA) are Cape Ann’s two outstanding centers of contemporary dance and movement. Windhover’s annual Quarry Dance series of site-specific works by resident choreographer Dusan Tynek is an extraordinary, not-to-bemissed summer performance highlighting the history and beauty of Cape Ann’s granite quarries. Art—of all media—will always be made and shown on Cape Ann. The community is energized and experiencing a trend toward more artist residencies, live/work spaces, and maker spaces. The arts keep Cape Ann creative, inventive, and on the cutting edge—yet all while under the watchful guidance of the Cape Ann masters who came before. While you’re here, see a play, hear a jazz band, buy a piece of art. If you’ve just moved here, become a member of the Cape Ann Museum and a subscriber to Gloucester Stage and Cape Ann Symphony. Play your part—pun intended. Today’s Cape Ann artists are waiting to meet you.

*Norman’s Woe is a reef at the entrance to Gloucester Harbor about 500 feet off the Magnolia shore near Rafe’s Chasm; the site of many shipwrecks, Norman’s Woe was immortalized in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s narrative poem “The Wreck of the Hesperus.” Mother Ann is a rock ledge on Eastern Point’s seaward shore seen by many to resemble the shape of a woman’s head and body.

CAPE ANN PLEIN AIR 2019:

EXTENDING OUR ARTS HERITAGE Neal Levy Photography

E

NTERING JUST ITS FOURTH YEAR, CAPE ANN PLEIN AIR (CAPA) IS ALREADY recognized as one of the leading outdoor painting competitions in the U.S., drawing artists—and art lovers—to the region known as the birthplace of plein air painting, a phrase borrowed from the French meaning “open (in full) air.”

Neal Levy Photography

With CAPA 2019 set for October 6-14, the Cape Ann community will once again embrace this wildly popular week-long celebration of the arts and the region’s unrivaled arts legacy. “Cape Ann Plein Air is an example of the vibrant cultural community here in our region,” said Susan Coviello, project manager for CAPA 2018 and 2019 and a Chamber board vice president. “We’re thrilled with the quality of artists we attract each year and with the support we see from

CAPE ANN GUIDE & DIRECTORY 2019–2020

Cape Ann’s arts community, businesses and residents.” This year, CAPA will again welcome national and international plein air artists, and those selected to participate will spread out across Cape Ann, in pursuit of views and subjects that have attracted painters here for more than 150 years. One event highlight will be the awards gala, where artists display their work for judging and sale. In 2018, CAPA presented more than $20,000 in prizes and artists sold more than 100 paintings. Organizers expect to exceed those totals in 2019. The gala is an incredible sight to behold, knowing that these prolific artists created all their works in one short week, under intense pressure and, at times, at the mercy of Mother Nature. The Cape Ann community and its visitors will also enjoy meeting the artists at the gala and at CAPA dinners, receptions, workshops and demonstrations. Artists love to discuss their work, their motivations and what draws them to Cape Ann. Many of them apply to CAPA every year, a testament to the artistic inspiration, camaraderie and community

they experience here, and the elusive, magnificent “Cape Ann light” they hope to capture on canvas. “It’s awesome to participate in the tradition of plein air in a place with as much historical significance and beauty as Cape Ann,” said Maryland artist Tara Will. Artist Ned Mueller, who traveled from Washington state commented, “It’s hard to beat this area…wonderful shapes and colors all over the place.” One of Cape Ann’s own, Rockport’s Ken Knowles, agreed, describing the competition as “a vehicle well-suited to the high level of art and artists.” Last year Massachusetts Governor Charles Baker proclaimed October 7–14 Cape Ann Plein Air Week, recognizing “Cape Ann’s legacy as the birthplace of plein air painting in America.” The governor’s proclamation reminded us that “for more than a century, painters such as Winslow Homer, Jane Peterson, Childe Hassam, Edward Hopper, Emile Gruppe and many others made Cape Ann a destination for their craft.” This October, Cape Ann will extend this legacy, as our community comes together with some of today’s leading plein air artists to take CAPA to new heights.

A short walk along Dogtown Road leads the observant wanderer past a natural spring, wild blueberries and old cellar holes on the way to Dogtown Square. Gloucester historian and philanthropist Roger Babson founded a college that bears his name, though around these parts he may be better known for donating this land to be “a public park for all to enjoy” in perpetuity. Two boulders with the letters “D.T.SQ.” mark the location of Dogtown Square, and the Babson Boulder Trail begins just to the southeast.

ESSEX BICENTENNIAL Essex Historical Society and Shipbuilding Museum

E

SSEX IS CELEBRATING ITS BICENTENNIAL! THROUGHOUT 2019, THE theme “Two Hundred Years Later, Still a Small Town” will be seen, felt and heard across Cape Ann. The fun began on February 15 with an ice cream social at Essex Elementary School—200 years to the day after the former Chebacco Parish of Ipswich was incorporated as the Town of Essex. Upcoming events include parades, a bonfire, fireworks, Homecoming Weekend, old timers baseball, historical re-enactments and a wonderful array of entertaining and (and educational) activities throughout the year. All bicentennial events are designed to honor Essex’s beginnings, illustrate its evolution over the years, celebrate the town it is today and, of course, share a peek at what the future holds.

Before European settlers arrived in 1634 the area, one of the earliest settlements in Massachusetts was inhabited by Native Americans of the Agawam Tribe. The area now known as Essex was called Chebacco. In 1683, it became a Parish of Ipswich after a group of local women set about to build a meeting house. This meeting house and its successors, including the present day First Congregational Church of Essex (built in 1792), housed local governance activities until the current Town Hall was opened in 1894. (For the story of the church and its relation to the Town, including its Paul Revere bell, visit fccoe.org/history.) Early on, the main industries were farming, fishing, clamming and boat building. The Essex River was the lifeblood of the town providing jobs and a stunning watery path to the Atlantic. Soon, the Village of Essex grew up around the river and the main road running along the marsh to Gloucester from Ipswich proper.

During the mid to late 19th century local commerce grew, fueled by a flourishing shipbuilding industry. Nearly 4,000 wooden vessels were constructed along the banks of the Essex River. One out of every 28 American vessels was built in Essex. By 1947, Essex had built more two-masted vessels than any other town in the world. The Essex Branch Railroad, built in 1872, brought more industry, adding ice harvesting on Chebacco Lake, a shoe

factory on Southern Avenue and a recreational park on Chebacco Lake. There were also streetcars on Martin Street and Main Street. By the mid 20th century, a thriving creative economy led by antique shops, art studios and restaurants replaced the shipbuilding related businesses and the Essex River became a magnet for recreational boating. Today, Essex retains the charm of its past and blends it with exquisite natural beauty and a thriving commerce enjoyed and supported by its residents and visitors—an ideal example of an old New England seaside village gently pacing itself into the 21st century.

T

HERE IS NO QUESTION THAT CAPE ANN IS FAMOUS FOR ITS DRAMATIC LANDSCAPES, ITS PRISTINE BEACHES and, according to local artists, a quality of light to rival Venice. Yet, its people tell a story to rival the scenery. Historically drawn by the sea and Cape Ann’s safe harbors, today an extraordinary mix of people call Cape Ann home. Here are six conversations with local notables that offer some insight into the people who carved a distinct way of life from the Cape’s granite shores.


CAPE ANN PROFILES: JON SARKIN

W

Tim Montgomery

hat makes an artist want to make art? In Jon Sarkin’s case, the answer is devastating and complex. In 1988 he suffered a stroke, damaging the left side of his brain. In an instant, Sarkin was changed, neurologically, physically, his personality permanently altered. And yet, in that same time, a compulsion to make art was born. Sarkin is the subject of Shadows Bright as Glass, a profound and provocative book by Pulitzer Prize-finalist Amy Ellis Nutt. The book explores Sarkin’s transformative journey/recovery which, in turn, led him to a remarkable self-rediscovery—as an artist—and also led him to Cape Ann.

Left: Artist Jon Sarkin, Fish City Studios, Gloucester, MA. Right: A portrait by Sarkin.

“Some people possess something of interest. The thing of interest possesses me.” “What is the artist thinking?” takes on new meaning when chatting with Sarkin. “Some people possess something of interest. The thing of interest possesses me,” he explains. And Sarkin knows a thing or two about possession. His drawings over the years reveal patterns of repetitive images, words and totems, many drawn on the backs of record album covers, hundreds of record album covers, and speak to more than extreme compulsion. Sarkin loves his process, lives it, it’s his oxygen—and his therapy. “If I make art every day, it’s good for my mental state. I’m very invested.” One can envision endless studio hours, a frenetic pace. “It can be alienating and isolating at times.” Yet he’s a regular at the Sicilian café across the street—opposite his Fish City Studios on Gloucester’s Main Street— where his framed coffee cups grace the walls; and he is greeted with hugs and hellos as he strolls the sidewalk. Visiting Cape Ann one imagines an artist finding endless inspiration trying to capture the region’s mystic light. The ocean, the fishing fleets, CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

the salt marshes—all tempt the eye. That’s one connection between artist and subject—it’s visual and that vision is transferred to a canvas. In Sarkin’s process, the connection is more visceral than visual, it’s a process grounded in a connection to Cape Ann itself. So grounded, in fact, so integral that regardless of the image, a coffee cup or comic book hero, you’re looking at a manifestation of Cape Ann. “I have an agreement between me and Cape Ann,” he says. “The feeling I get,” he elaborates, “is a kind of reflexive feeling of relief, it’s not a conscious thing. I feel at home here, at ease. Like I belong here. I love living here. I don’t always like living here, but I love living here. You know what I mean.” And I do. “I gain tremendous inspiration every day living here. It just doesn’t come out the same way [as other artists]. Allegory is much more powerful than addressing it directly. I don’t address Cape Ann directly. I don’t draw pictures of Dogtown but whatever I do is directly influenced by living here.”

“Thinking about what I’m going to do doesn’t work for me. I don’t pre-think how Cape Ann affects me. I’ll walk and look at the ocean…how do you capture a moving ocean on a flat static painting? Or how the sunlight reflects on the water? But I don’t think, ‘Gee I’d like to draw this.’ It’s very stream of consciousness, unmediated by my expectations. “If you look at Fitz Hugh Lane, Winslow Homer…the influence of the ocean is obvious and direct. If you look at Hopper and Hartley, it’s not as obvious. But look at Hopper’s houses. There’s something about the houses. You know they’re near the ocean. The influence isn’t as obvious, but it’s there.” I look at Sarkin’s clouds and lightbulbs, his pencils, Chrysler buildings and his layered, shadowed portraits. “Art springs from contentment,” I add. “Exactly,” he finishes. The salt air, the reflecting sun, the craggy granite coastline. There might be a coffee cup on the canvas but it’s Cape Ann. “The unmanifested things are more interesting.” CAPE ANN GUIDE & DIRECTORY 2019–2020

don’t think we’d live any other place,” said Terri Brackett, who, with her husband Charlie and two sons Mark and Ross, owns Brackett’s Oceanview, a classic New England seafood restaurant in Rockport, and Brothers’ Brew Coffee Shop next door. “We lived away a couple of times, but always with the feeling that we’d come back. We have a lot of family here, we love the seasons, the community.” Terri sighed. “I just love Cape Ann.” Though originally from Gloucester, Terri and Charlie have deep ties to their building at 25 Main Street. Both worked at the restaurant growing up, then known as Oleana By the Sea, as did Terri’s parents. In 1973, Terri’s father took over the coffee shop next Brothers Mark and Ross Brackett in their cafe Brothers’ Brew Coffee Shop.

“It’s great being in a small community, knowing everyone. We see all our friends every day.” door. “Back then it was just called The Coffee Shop.” Terri figured she would take over when her father retired, but plans changed shortly after returning to Cape Ann. “After a couple years back in the area, we heard the people who owned Oleana’s were getting out, and we saw an opportunity. We figured, why not?” That was 1988, and the two businesses have been in the family since. “After we bought the restaurant, my brother took over the coffee shop,” explained Terri. “He had it for 15 years, then my two boys took it over.” “I went to school for accounting,” her son Ross added, “but one winter my parents went to Chicago and stumbled upon a coffee festival. They brought home some coffee magazines that really sparked my interest.” Like his parents, Ross saw an opportunity. “When my brother had the shop it was just basic, regular and decaf,” said Terri. “Nobody did flavors. It was a new experience, learning the coffee and tea industry. We learn a lot from our boys. They learn from us, and we learn from them.” Now Brothers’ Brew offers micro-roasted cof-

fee from Black Bear Coffee in Tuftonboro, NH and a full range of custom espresso drinks. Another learning curve came in 2006, when the formerly dry town allowed restaurants to serve beer and wine. “None of us knew anything about making drinks!” Terri laughed. “At first, you had to have a meal with your drink, then an appetizer. Now you can just come in, sit on the back deck and have a drink.” That deck looks out through floor-to-ceiling windows onto the glory of Front Beach and Sandy Bay. “It’s just gorgeous,” said Terri. “Even though we’re so busy, once in a while you just have to stop and look. I love seeing the kids playing and the boats coming in.” She stopped a moment, thinking. “When we get into August, you can feel the season winding down. The color of the water changes. That’s always how I know I can begin to relax!” While Brackett’s Oceanview is open from mid-April through Columbus Day, Brothers’ Brew serves up coffee and homemade pastry year-round. Because of its popularity, the shop

serves as a local hub for many groups, from Mahjong players to town committees. “The Thacher Island Association meets here all winter, and in summertime they come every day to get donuts. Once they missed the donuts for some reason, so my husband brought them out by boat!” laughed Terri. “It’s great being in a small community, knowing everyone. We see all our friends every day.” Summer brings another sense of community as the seasonal crowd returns. “It’s been 30 years now, so you know a lot of the tourists that come back. You recognize their names when they call to make reservations,” Terri said fondly. “Over the years we’ve seen their families grow up. The kids are married now and bringing their children back.” While high season can feel like a marathon, the family wouldn’t have it any other way. “It’s beautiful here, every season, all weather. Our family is here. We’ve had some of the same staff since we opened 30 years ago. It’s hard work but we have a lot of fun. We’re very lucky.” CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM


CAPE ANN PROFILES: MEGAN WOLF

“I

like to have a lot of irons in the fire!” Megan Wolf laughed, naming the seven bands she’s in, the second solo album she’s writing, her teaching and mentoring roles, and a list of upcoming gigs. Wolf’s love of music and performing is life-long. Her earliest memories are creating melodies while playing on Lighthouse Beach in Gloucester, MA. “From the first time I could envision a future, it was me on a stage. That’s it.” She began songwriting at 15 while listening to her older brother practice. “He’d play music in his room, and I’d sing along. It was like a soundtrack that I could write over.” Wolf soon began singing at open mic nights, yet wasn’t sure where her talents would lead.

“From the first time I could envision a future, it was me on a stage. That’s it.” “When I finished college, I just said no. There’s nothing that gives me that fire like music does.” After time singing in cover bands, followed by songwriting stints in Los Angeles and Brooklyn, Wolf returned to Cape Ann in 2016. “I didn’t have a band anymore. I was living in my mom’s house. I thought, ‘What did I do? This is so depressing! David Bowie just died!’ Then I got a call from my friend Warren Babson at Bang-A-Song Studios in Gloucester.” Band of Wolves was in the studio and they needed some soulful back-up vocals. Though she hadn’t performed in months, Wolf agreed. “All stars aligned. It was one of the best studio performances I’ve ever had.” One of the band members called her back in before she had even started her car. “That person was actually Leighton Wolffe, who is now my fiancé.” Wolf grinned. “Very magical day in that studio.” Leighton Wolffe and producer Jon Butcher had just started Electric Factory X (EFX), an artist management company on Cape Ann, and they wanted to release Wolf’s solo album. “It had been 10 years of all these side projects. Finally this moCAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

ment comes where someone wants to go the distance with you. I felt totally victorious that I had taken that leap,” Wolf said in tears. “It was full circle. I thought what I needed was outside of Gloucester,” she recalled. “But really, I needed to find myself first, so I could thrive here. I feel proud to be a successful musician from Gloucester, still working hard with Gloucester musicians, recording in a Gloucester studio. There’s a huge rise happening here.” Of course, the music scene on Cape Ann has been thriving for decades. “It’s massive and interwoven with all different ages of musicians, and genres, and generations. A lot of the bands playing now are kids of people playing 30 years ago. It’s just a really great family vibe.” Wolf’s Cape Ann contacts have led to increasingly high-profile opportunities. Her first album, That Girl, was released in 2017. After performing at a benefit concert, American Standard’s Cliff Goodwin and Mitch Chakour asked Wolf to join their band Mad Dogs Unchained, a Joe Cocker legacy project, for a European tour. Wolf couldn’t believe

it. “I said, ‘What is going on!’ Within a year, all this is happening, and I’m pinching myself constantly.” In addition to performing, Wolf teaches music lessons and mentors local talent. She takes her position as a role model very seriously. “On my next album I have a lot of themes to do with women’s empowerment,” noting that she’s been honored to perform at women’s marches and protests against domestic violence. “Any opportunity I have to share and to advocate, I’m going to.” Both the #metoo movement and working with children have been inspiring and eye-opening for Wolf. “As artists, we need to be aware of how our work is going to be empowering, or if it’s hurting someone.” As for what’s next, Wolf recently started an Amy Winehouse tribute band, and after a summer of gigs with all her projects, the Megan Wolf Variety Band will headline Gloucester Harvest Music Festival on September 14. “It’s the day after my birthday and the week after my wedding. Totally coming in with a feeling of victory and celebration and just really happy about my community.” CAPE ANN GUIDE & DIRECTORY 2019–2020

t’s a regular Horatio Alger story,” said Steve Douglass about his father Freddie, referencing the 19th century Massachusetts author who wrote novels about hardworking boys in the Northeast finding their way to middle-class security. The son of Irish and Scottish immigrants, Freddie left school after eighth grade to help the family. Most boys came of age on farms or in factories, but Freddie grew up on the water. His father fished mackerel, while Freddie became a yacht finisher. He joined the Navy during World War II and was stationed on the USS Constitution, a working museum ship in Boston. Returning to Cape Ann, Freddie became a fisheries warden. He saw the sail and steamboat traffic coming from BosLeft: Steve Douglass. Right: Captain Jim Douglass and sons aboard the Hurricane II.

“I’ve had some people break down and cry, just the experience of seeing the largest living creature.” ton, and had heard of a whale watching operation in Provincetown. “He’s seeing people pay to enjoy going on boats for recreation,” Steve pointed out, noting that Freddie began to look for similar opportunities. In 1969, opportunity arose when Freddie bought a small boat, the Dixie Belle. He began operating harbor tours off the dock of a lobster restaurant. “While out there watching the fishing boats haul back, he and his mates scanned the horizons for blows,” Steve said. Ten years later, Freddie bought a bigger boat and officially expanded into whale watching tours, the first on Cape Ann and only the second on the East Coast. Freddie split the business in 1983. Returning from college, Jim took over Cape Ann Whale Watch, while Steve continued Cape Ann Harbor Tours during summers off. Since then, Steve, now retired from teaching, has added the Lady Jillian, a water shuttle and lighthouse cruises. Jim scaled up the boats gradually and now runs the Hurricane II, which is 115 feet long and carries up to 250 people. “We put all our eggs

in one basket. Now we have the largest, fastest boat north of Boston,” said Jim. The best part of the job for both brothers is the passengers. “It’s like an extension of my living room, all of Cape Ann,” said Steve. “The history around here is amazing, and we share all that.” Jim agrees. “I’ve had some people break down and cry, just the experience of seeing the largest living creature.” Working with their families is another plus. Steve’s wife and son help him out, and as for Jim, “He’s got half the family,” Steve joked, explaining that their sisters and nieces, plus Jim’s daughter and sons also work for the tours. On the Hurricane II a naturalist educates passengers on whale activity and identification. “The undersides of whale’s tails are like our fingerprint,” explained Jim. “So if we see a whale we know, we know its whole life story.” Returning passengers are eager to see old favorites and new additions. “People get on board and ask, ‘Are we going to see Salt? How about Salt’s calf from 1989?’” Winters are spent preparing for the upcoming season, though it’s not exact-

ly downtime. “It’s pretty much a yearround job,” admitted Jim. “Which is a little ironic,” continued Steve, “because my father preached that you couldn’t make a living off this. When he started, he was just doing this in the summers as a side thing. That’s not the case today.” “I wonder if it was a natural passion for the area,” Steve began, speaking about their father, “or a learned appreciation. Perhaps it was both.” Jim agreed. “The way he grew up, on Rocky Neck,” a peninsula in Gloucester Harbor, “it’s a pretty unique area, and like him, we’ve always been outdoors. Never had an office job, never pushed paper. His whole childhood he grew up on boats. I think it was natural that he would get involved. He built it from the ground up, with no college education. That’s an amazing feat right there.” That love for Cape Ann was passed down. “I have traveled extensively,” said Steve. “I’ve seen a lot of nice places, but when I return here—the harbors, the bays, the rivers, the marshes, the islands. This is a very beautiful place. You take it all in. It’s always very special coming back.” CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM


CAPE ANN PROFILES: BOB COVIELLO

F

Rita Fucillo

or more than 70 of its 200 years, Essex has been one of New England’s foremost antiques centers—a must-visit destination for “above ocean” treasure-hunting. For 37 of those 70, Bob Coviello has held court as the foremost authority on all things old, new and in-between. Warm, witty and wildly knowledgeable, even if you’re not looking for an antique, a gift or a special little something, you should stop in and say hello. A chat with Coviello offers a glimpse into the history of his collection as well as the town he’s intensely proud of. The exterior of his Main Street compound is a maze of furniture, some perfect, some in need of repair. The interior is a labyrinth of floors and chambers,

“There are no two things exactly alike in this building. You go into a retail store and everything is exactly alike.” Tetris-ed to the inch. His inventory system? Coviello taps his head. “I can close my eyes at night and if you ask me to tell you what’s in this room I can start at one end and go to the other.” Despite the volume of pieces—a quantity beyond imagination—there is one item you will not find—dust. Coviello walks the store daily with a dusting cloth, sweeping every surface of dust and fingerprints. A school teacher for 17 years, Coviello turned to antiques full-time around 1981. His father was a contractor, and sparked his son’s flair for repair. “I like to fix things up—if it was a nice day I’d be outside fixing furniture ’cause I’m basically a furniture guy.” Even on a winter’s day, “if the sun is shining and there’s no wind” Coviello is working outside. “For me that’s the most fun.” But where do all the treasures come from? “Today, I never leave the parking lot,” he explains, “it all comes to me. In the old days, I used to travel and buy stuff…no need for that anymore.” The business of antiques has changed and Coviello has ridden the eBay wave CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

over the years. He’s seen it hurt and help, from his perspective as both seller and buyer. “I would say, for a number of years, eBay pushed the business forward. It made everybody interested in antiques. It was exciting. Now when someone brings [an item] to me and says ‘Well, I looked it up on eBay,’ then I know the conversation is over,” he laughs. “People see items on the internet and think they can get the asking price from me. I ask, ‘Did it sell? Um, no.’ Then we get back to reality.” While the internet has certainly changed the playing field, there is still no substitute for quality pieces, made with skill and made to last. Coviello adds, “And there are no two things exactly alike in this building. You go into a retail store and everything is exactly alike…and if you wanted 50 of them, you could have 50 of them. Here, you can’t.” With so many unique pieces, there must be the occasional surprise? “In the antique business, we call that a hit—and you’re always looking out for that hit. Over the years, I’ve had some—but I

haven’t had the big one that I can retire on…but sometimes a painting comes in that you paid $50 for and it could be an $8,000 painting. That’s what you pursue, that hit. That’s the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.” While your visit to Essex may have been to kayak or bird-watch along the Essex River or indulge in a clam bake, carve out some time with Bob. His treasures may be classified as antiques yet their appeal is universal. And his craftsmanship guarantees a wellcared for or refurbished piece. Perfect if you’re just starting out, right? “But young folks aren’t buying antiques,” he corrects me. “I’m trying not to be negative, I’m accused of being negative,” he says with a smirk. And yet, I contend they should, that we’re all searching for value and durability. Need an accent piece that you haven’t been able to find? A teapot for your collection? Coviello is still open seven days a week, 363 days a year. I gasp at his dedication. “I live right next door, it’s the world’s shortest commute.” Another smirk. CAPE ANN GUIDE & DIRECTORY 2019–2020

IX ICONIC LIGHTHOUSES STAND GUARD ALONG THE CAPE ANN coastline protecting seafarers from rocky shores and shoals. They offer historians and romantics alike a glimpse into Cape Ann’s maritime lore and legacy. Lighthouses are a comfort to mariners to this day, and despite the use of GPS and electronic aids for navigation they still symbolize home and safety.

GLOUCESTER Annisquam Harbor Lighthouse White light flashing every 7.5 seconds with red sector. Annisquam Harbor Lighthouse (Annisquam Light) was erected in 1801 to mark the entrance to the Annisquam River at Wigwam Point, a popular Native American summer encampment. The river connected Ipswich Bay to Gloucester Harbor following the construction of the Blynman Canal. Annisquam Light’s wooden frame was replaced with the existing 41-foot brick tower, with a focal plane of 45 feet, in

1897. The lighthouse is maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard and is no longer accessible from the nearby village of Annisquam in Gloucester. Best viewing opportunities are by water or from Wingaersheek Beach.

Eastern Point Lighthouse White light flashing every 5 seconds. Eastern Point Lighthouse was erected on Gloucester’s Eastern Point to mark the harbor entrance in 1832. The current brick tower was built in 1890 and is 36 feet tall with a focal plane of 56 feet. In addition to the light, there is a

large lighthouse station, which continues to serve as housing for the U.S. Coast Guard. One of the station’s more famous occupants was Winslow Homer. The noted artist spent a year living at the light in 1880. Although not open to visitors, the lighthouse presents a wonderful view, especially from the vantage point of the adjacent Dog Bar Breakwater. Visitors are welcome to walk along or fish from the flat granite blocks atop this massive quarter-mile long structure, which has protected Gloucester Harbor from storms since 1904. The Massachusetts Audubon Society maintains a small parking area near the lighthouse and breakwater as part of its Eastern Point Wildlife Sanctuary. Parking is free for members and $10 per car for non-members between Memorial Day and Columbus Day. For more information visit massaudubon.org. CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM


Ten Pound Island Lighthouse Equal interval red light every 6 seconds. This lighthouse is located on Ten Pound Island, in Gloucester Harbor. The light was constructed in 1821 to mark the island and act as a guide for navigating Gloucester’s inner harbor. Rebuilt in 1881 from cast iron with brick lining, the tower is 30 feet tall with a focal point of 56 feet. Visible from many locations along Gloucester’s waterfront, tiny Ten Pound Island proudly housed America’s first Coast Guard station. The light was restored and relighted through the efforts of the Lighthouse Preservation Society. For more information visit lighthousepreservation.org.

foot granite towers (with a focal point of 166 feet above sea level) seen today replaced the original lights in 1861. The two towers, North and South, were constructed and placed so that when a ship puts sights on both towers, they point to true north, allowing sailors

to check and adjust their compasses. The Thacher Island Association provides launch service from T-Wharf in Rockport Harbor to the island during the summer months, with advance reservations. For more information visit thacherisland.org.

ROCKPORT Straitsmouth Island Lighthouse Green light flashing every 6 seconds. Abbott Cove Photography

Straitsmouth Island Lighthouse (Straitsmouth Light) was built in 1835 to mark the entrance to nearby Rockport Harbor. The present brick lighthouse was built in 1896 with a height of 37 feet and a focal plane of 46 feet above sea level. The relatively small lighthouse is maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard, but is owned by the Town of Rockport including the 1.8 acres upon which it sits. The rest of the 31-acre island is owned by the Massachusetts Audubon Society as a bird sanctuary. For more information visit thacherisland.org.

Also known as Cape Ann Light Station, the Twin Lights are the only fully operational multiple lights on the coasts of the United States. The South tower has a red light flashing five times at 20-second intervals. The North tower has an amber steady light which is maintained by the Thacher Island Association as a “courtesy” memorial light to mariners who have passed away. The original 45foot towers were constructed and lit in 1771 making them among the oldest of America’s lighthouses. The stout 124CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM
