One can easily spend a week roaming in and out of these lovely shops. Essex also boasts fine art, dining, river recreation and two museums with their own extraordinary stories to tell. Whether you are a collector, decorator or simply curious, this paradise of home furnishings and accessories ranges from artisan wares and vintage goods to fine American and international antiques. Several gift shops and artist studios offer specialty goods and locally made items. Most are housed in 18th and 19th century homes located in the

mile-long Essex River Cultural District. Like Cape Ann itself, Essex is a favorite destination for seafood lovers. Woodman’s is the birthplace of the fried clam, an Essex classic, yet there’s something to delight every taste in “New England’s Restaurant Capital.” Even kids will be satisfied while adults relax with a cocktail on an outdoor deck or enjoy Sunday brunch

and live music on the Essex River as you watch a parade of boaters cruise by. 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

Fall and spring are perfect times for hiking, biking, beach combing and enjoying the small-town atmosphere. In December, take part in Christmas-bythe-Sea—a weekend’s worth of special events including the Manchester Holiday Stroll. Throughout the winter, enjoy cross-country skiing or hiking at Coolidge Reservation and then warm up at night with comfort food at one of Manchester’s wonderful restaurants.

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. 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.

Richard Correale, GicleeOne.com

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

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.

I was actually on my way to law school in New York when my mother-in-law called and asked if we would run an ice cream store for a friend of hers, just for one summer before I went to school.” The couple agreed, and soon realized that they didn’t want to quit. “We decided we loved it, so we negotiated to stay and ultimately bought the property back in 1996. We’ve been here ever since.” “Here” is an idyllic location on Beach Street in Manchester-by-the-Sea. “We couldn’t script a better location,” says Bartlett. “There is a beautiful park and harbor across the street from us. On one end of the street is a train from Boston, and at the other end is a public beach. It’s

a beautiful place just to grab an ice cream and look at the water.” Part of the charm comes from the building itself, which was once a lobster and bait shack run by a local fisherman—the Captain Dusty— for about 50 years. In addition to this location, the Bartletts now run multiple Captain Dusty’s Ice Cream shops for those in search of a sweet treat on the North Shore, in addition to their own, small-scale production facility, of which Lisa is very proud. “Fundamentally, what makes us special is that we only make five-gallon batches for each flavor at a time—even as we’ve grown, we haven’t changed that.” “There are essential parts of our production that are still done by hand,” Bartlett continues. “A lot of our ingredients are hand-stirred. For example, if a flavor has a chocolate swirl, we stand at the machine, and as the ice cream is being dispensed into a bucket, we handswirl the chocolate in with a spatula. We literally put a glove on and throw Oreos into the ice cream as it’s coming out, because we like to keep the pieces thick. I think that makes us better.” Many Manchester-by-theSea locals, and the countless summer beachgoers who pass by Captain Dusty’s Ice Cream on their way from the train to Singing Beach, have a favorite flavor. Bartlett mentions “Dog and Pony,” a peanut butter ice cream with Oreos. “It’s so popular, we have a hard time keeping it in stock.” While autumn is not ordinarily ice

cream season, some loyal customers can’t wait for colder weather because of Captain Dusty’s seasonal Pumpkin Pie flavor (the business is open from mid-March through late October, and on the first weekend of December for the Christmasby-the-Sea event). For her part, Bartlett is a fan of Mocha Chip. “I eat a little bit almost every day!” she laughs. There is a seasonal rhythm of busy months and lulls to running an ice cream shop, yet Bartlett has found that the ice cream business offers her the balance she needs between work and family. “Now that I’m a mom, I get to spend a lot of time with my kids. Of course, I still work a ton, but this business allows me the time to juggle things so that I can be with my kids a lot and still cover all my bases.” Not only that, Bartlett has the enviable job of providing a service that delights people of all ages. “Everyone who comes to Captain Dusty’s Ice Cream is here because they want to be. I have the luxury of dealing with a customer base that is very happy to be here, and I think most careers don’t afford you that opportunity. It’s such a happy business.”

CAPE ANN PROFILES: PAULA COLE

“W

hen I was a teenager, I wanted to be Odysseus. I longed to leave and conquer the world.” True to her dreams, Paula Cole did just that. A Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and producer of her own label, 675 Records, Cole’s career spans multiple genres and nine albums since her debut in 1994 with Harbinger. The Rockport, MA native has lived in New York and Los Angeles and tours extensively, truly “becoming a citizen of the world” like she always wanted. Yet similar to her hero Odysseus, Cole has made the journey home. Today she lives near Beverly, MA, a short drive from where she grew up.

“I’ve been all over, and I can tell you that the beauty of Cape Ann rivals anywhere on this planet,” Cole says. She knows the area’s landscape intimately, and draws meaning from it. “I love the granite on which it stands. It speaks to who the locals are. We’re tough like granite. Honest like it. We can be remote, but also artistic and caring.… Growing up, I cared about my community, but I didn’t realize exactly how special it was until I went out into the world and gained perspective.” When she was young, Cole’s musical family was “supportive yet wary” of her chosen career path. Cole says she understands this, now that she has her own daughter. “Being an artist can be a hard life. That’s not something you necessarily want for your kids.” Her most recent album, Ballads, is dedicated to her father. Ballads pays homage to Cole’s first loves—American jazz and folk—with soulful classics from Billie Holiday, John Coltrane and Bob Dylan. (Cole studied jazz singing at Berklee College of Music, where she now teaches.) Returning to these jazz and folk icons makes sense for Cole, who is never one to shy away from emotional music. “Sometimes there has to be tears, but I want my audience to go home lighter, feeling victorious. There should be jubilation, too.”

“Music is a mysterious force that makes society more healthy,” she continues. “I’m proud that I can help people, and I really wish Americans were more supportive of the arts.” Yet perhaps the ideal, arts-positive society that Cole envisions is not far from her hometown’s reality. Traditionally, Cape Ann has served as both inspiration and refuge for artists, writers and musicians of all kinds. Take the Shalin Liu Performing Arts Center in Rockport, where Cole has performed every year since it opened. “It’s a gorgeous gem—such an asset to the community.…It feels like a part of my life now, my tradition. I’m grateful to have that audience be a part of my homecoming.” When back on Cape Ann, Cole often reconnects with her past. “I walk the beaches of my girlhood, feeling connected to my memories as I look out at the Atlantic.” Yet Cape Ann’s appeal is not all about the past for Cole. It’s about the future, also, and establishing continuity between the two. “I chose to come back to my roots on Cape Ann so that all the generations of my family can now be together.” After all, for Odysseus, the most important part of his voyage was being together with his family, at home at last.

“I’ve been all over, and I can tell you that the beauty of Cape Ann rivals anywhere on this planet. I love the granite on which it stands. It speaks to who the locals are. We’re tough like granite. Honest like it.” —Paula Cole 22

f anyone appreciates the richness of Cape Ann’s history, it’s Ronda Faloon. Executive director of the Cape Ann Museum in Gloucester since 2006, Faloon holds an advanced degree in library and information sciences, and has been a Gloucester resident for 30 years. That combination makes her an enthusiastic champion of the museum’s collection, and the perfect person to connect locals and visitors to the region’s storied heritage. Faloon has difficulty narrowing any discussion of the many documents, objects and artworks within the Cape Ann Museum’s holdings. “Because our collection is so tied to local history and culture, very different parts of it remain connected. It’s hard to mention one aspect of the collection without touching on a lot of others.” Nevertheless, Faloon lists some highlights that no visitor should miss. Unsurprisingly, the museum has strong holdings that celebrate the region’s seafaring culture. Art lovers marvel

at the many paintings by Gloucester native and 19th-century master of maritime art, Fitz Henry Lane. If you are more interested in technology, seek out the “hard to miss” ten-foot-tall, original Fresnel lens that was used in the Twin Lights on Thacher Island in the 1880s. The lens, Faloon explains, was “an incredible innovation in maritime safety”—no unimportant feat for a city whose main memorial honors fishermen who died at sea. Other visitor favorites are connected to national history. Faloon describes a well-preserved British army red coat dating from the War of 1812 that often catches a museum-goer’s gaze. “It’s almost certainly the only one that exists in the United States.” The museum also cares for Revolutionary War hero Paul Revere’s silver, which had been used for many years in a Gloucester church before entering the museum’s care. Just as the collection reflects Cape Ann’s history and culture, Faloon has spent considerable energy ensuring that current programs reflect and serve the region’s residents today. “One of the goals of the board was to make this museum more a part of the community, so of course that became one of the main goals of my tenure,” Faloon explains. “We really expanded programming, and hosted more exhibitions and collaborations with other institutions in the area.” The Cape Ann Museum collaborates with more than 30 cultural and civic organizations each year, including Rockport Music, the local farmer’s market, and Maritime Gloucester, to

name a few. One very successful program is the Gloucester Public Schools District Arts Festival. “We expanded our audience by hosting this annual arts festival, where more than 800 children visit in a single day,” says Faloon. Another exciting program for residents is the museum’s policy to remain open in January, and free to all Cape Ann residents throughout the month. “We want people to take ownership of this museum, to be proud of it, and to visit it at any time of the year.” “I think of this all as a continuum,” Faloon continues. “The local kids are part of an amazing legacy—a legacy that continues. The Cape Ann arts community is growing. More galleries and artists are at work here than ever, in addition to the artists and writers who come for residencies. Our beautiful natural resources continue to inspire.” The Cape Ann Museum supports this local network by actively collecting works by living artists, hosting poetry readings and book launches, and inviting composers to create music inspired by objects in the collection. Having steered the museum through growth and success for so many years— she was a guiding force behind its $3.5 million renovation in 2014—Faloon recently announced her retirement for May 2019. Her final year will be spent completing a strategic plan in honor of the museum’s 150th anniversary, which coincides with Gloucester’s 400th, in 2023. Faloon will be missed, yet her leadership has made an indelible mark on Cape Ann’s history and culture.

CAPE ANN PROFILES: JEFF WEAVER

O

ne sunlit, weekday afternoon in January, the temperature in Gloucester hovered in the mid-30s. Despite this, painter Jeff Weaver stood outside at his easel, capturing the slabs of green ice that floated by the long, white Beacon Marine Basin building that stretches into the harbor atop its pilings. “Am I cold?” he said, repeating my question with a good-natured chuckle. “No, not compared to how cold it’s been recently.” Weaver often paints on site, drawing inspiration directly from “the battleground,” as he terms the surrounding visual world. For Weaver, painting is all about exploring environments that are beyond the artist’s control, where light bounces off the ocean or passes through ice. “I like to paint from nature, on site. Right now I’m at one of my more commonly painted spots…but this is the first time that I am trying to paint ice floating on top of the reflection of a building in the water. That’s the challenge that I’ve made for myself today.” Weaver has always wanted to be an artist. “It’s something I’ve had an affinity for

my whole life, from the time I was very, very small. It’s something I always thought I would do.” Likewise, he has long loved the port city of Gloucester. Though he was born and raised in Framingham, MA, Weaver frequently accompanied his father and siblings on fishing trips to Cape Ann. As a teen, he would visit Gloucester on his own painting and drawing expeditions, moving there permanently in 1972, fresh out of high school. What is it about Gloucester that had—and maintains—such a strong appeal for Weaver? “To explain it in one sentence is virtually impossible.…At the very least, there are two aspects of it. There’s the pictorial aspect, and then there’s the sentimental aspect. Sentimentally, I have all these feelings about old buildings and fishing.…There’s something intriguing about a way of life that focuses on the ocean. Pictorially, the ocean gives me all these fabulous lighting effects, and that’s just part of the variety here. Gloucester itself offers many different shapes, colors and textures. It’s everything that art is about.” For the first 20-odd years after moving to Cape Ann, Weaver earned a reputation for the signs and murals he painted for local businesses. Some of them, like the indoor murals he created at two pop-

ular Cape Ann dining spots, Causeway Restaurant and Lobsta Land, can still be seen today. Yet it wasn’t until sales of his works on canvas truly started picking up 15 years ago that Weaver was able to fully pursue being a professional fine artist. He bought a studio on Rogers Street from which he still displays and sells his work on Saturday afternoons. “Opening that gallery was a big milestone for me,” Weaver said. “I decided to go full tilt.” “Full tilt” means that Weaver rarely wastes an opportunity to paint. Whenever he can—even in an icy harbor in mid-winter—he sets his easel up outdoors to capture the world around him, or spends careful hours in the studio on finishing touches, or as he puts it: “adjusting nature, for the sake of the picture.” It’s a lot of work, but Weaver thoroughly enjoys the challenge. He encourages budding artists to work hard, too. “If a person is interested in making artwork, the most important thing for them is to do it—go ahead and make the art! Don’t get intimidated and don’t worry about results. Just begin.” Worried about a lack of ideas? “Ideas come from the doing of art; it’s not the other way around,” Weaver maintained. “Go out and paint anything. The ideas will start to flow, I promise.”

n a warm, Wednesday evening in the summertime, music and dancing fill the deck of a quaint building on Bearskin Neck, a slip of land stretching into Rockport’s Sandy Bay. The scene is part of a Rockport legend, the popular “Hump Day” dances hosted at My Place by the Sea, an oceanfront restaurant run by Chef Kathy Milbury and co-owner Barbara Stavropoulos. Over the past two decades—My Place by the Sea is enjoying its 21st season in 2018—the restaurant has earned rave reviews not just from discerning locals, but from the rich and famous, including filmmaker Steven Spielberg and musician Sam Smith. The restaurant’s success wasn’t always a given. “If you had told me, way back before we took this on, that I was going to buy a restaurant that was seasonal, that had no parking, that had no liquor license, my business mind would have said, ‘Forget about it!’” says Chef Milbury, remembering her first impres-

sions of the restaurant. “However, there I was, looking out at the most beautiful landscape in the entire universe, with all the different colors of the ocean reflecting the changing sunsets and sunrises… There just never seems to be the same, identical sunset here. They’re magnificent, no matter what time of year. It’s unbelievable. That decided it, and the rest is history.” Stavropoulos puts it another way: “When you come in at the entrance, you look straight through to the ocean.… You immediately feel like you’re away. It’s peaceful; you’re on vacation.” Yet focusing on the stunning views alone would sell Milbury and Stavropoulos’ efforts short. They led a crusade to get a liquor license. They brought in DJs or live music for the Hump Day dances. Most importantly, they served delicious, local seafood. “When you’re looking at the ocean, never cook with frozen fish,” Milbury instructs. “It should be obvious: Always use fresh. Always use local.” This was the way Milbury was trained early in her culinary career on Nantucket, and she’s proud to carry on this tradition at My Place by the Sea. “Once I had a fisherman down on the rocks, right in front of the restaurant on a Saturday night when we were packed…I went outside and saw he had a beautiful, 40-inch striped bass. He held it up to me, and I took it, kissed the fish and brought it in, asking if anyone

wanted striped bass! I’m living my dream, as a chef.” Milbury’s mantra is “simple is better,” but simple doesn’t exclude bountiful. One of her signature dishes is the “subtle and sublime” Portuguese fisherman’s stew. Mixed into a spicy tomato broth is “all the fresh seafood that we have: littleneck clams, gulf shrimp, local haddock, halibut.…It’s just a whole array of seafood and the flavors speak for themselves.” There’s also the large grilled lobster taco, which Milbury, laughing, describes as being “photographed more times than the Motif”— referring to Bearskin Neck’s iconic red fishing shack, beloved by Cape Ann artists. For the Hump Day dances, she serves up the My Place take on cozy pub food: nachos, sliders and pizza. But it’s clear where Milbury’s allegiance lies. “My sign is Cancer, so I track to water and my love is for seafood— pristine seafood.” Each year before they open full-time for the season, Milbury and Stavropoulos enjoy a private dinner, one of the few days when they can relax at their restaurant. “On that day we see what our customers always see. It’s the reason why we work so hard and can’t complain about it,” says Stavropoulos. Milbury agrees. “If I’m going to work 100 hours a week, this is where I want to be. Watching the storms rolling in and out, the sunsets, the water—it is just amazing.”

OH HOW SHE ’SCOONS!

A PEEK AT CAPE ANN’S SCHOONER HERITAGE BY TERRY WEBER MANGOS AND JIM WITHAM, CURATOR, ESSEX SHIPBUILDING MUSEUM

C

APT. ANDREW ROBINSON OF GLOUCESTER BUILT AND LAUNCHED THE first American fishing schooner in 1713. As she slipped into the water, legend tells us that a spectator cried, “See how she ’scoons!” In response, Capt. Robinson shouted, “A schooner let her be!” The word “scoon” has several possible origins including from the Scottish word “scon,” which means “to send over water, to skip stones.”

WHAT IS A SCHOONER? A schooner is a vessel with a bowsprit— which is the spar mounted on the bow, one or more headsails, and two or more

masts, each carrying sails attached to the back. There was a variant, the Topsail Schooner. She carried a square sail at the top of the foremast.

WHY WERE SCHOONERS POPULAR? From the mid 1700s to late 1800s schooners were popular amongst privateers, coastal tradesmen, and fishermen. They were the fastest and leanest vessels available, reaching the Grand Banks in record time and returning with their large holds packed with salted, iced, or fresh fish. Schooners also maneuvered coastal winds better and required smaller crews than other types of vessels. They could glide through shallow waters, making it easier to enter Gloucester Harbor and

Cape Ann’s inlets and rivers. At the time, all of these attributes made the schooner the most valued vessel for fishermen and North American coastal trade.

ORIGINS OF RACING FISHING SCHOONERS

ESSEX As the fishing industry grew steadily in the 1800s, so did the need for schooners. By 1850 there were 15 shipyards on the Essex River and the town was America’s leader in fishing schooner construction. By the time the shipyards of Essex closed in 1948, one of every 28 wooden vessels that flew

the American flag was built in Essex. Prominent Essex historian Lewis Story felt confident estimating that as many as 3,600 vessels may have been built in Essex between 1650 and 1940. The Essex Historical Society and Shipbuilding Museum also maintains a list of 2,838 named vessels built in Essex between the years of 1714 and 1948.

FAMOUS LOCAL SCHOONERS Among the more famous schooners built in Essex for the Gloucester fishing fleet were the schooners Gertrude L. Thebaud (launched in 1930); the Effie M. Morrissey (launched in 1894), now known as the Schooner Ernestina-Morrissey; and the Schooner Adventure (launched in 1926). The Gertrude L. Thebaud was built for speed, and she was the last American schooner built specifically to race against the famed Canadian Schooner, Bluenose. To qualify, all Thebaud needed to do was

The tradition of racing fishing schooners was borne from the public’s demand for fresh fish in the 1800s, and the need to get back to port quickly. Once a schooner was full, she raced home to preserve the freshness of the fish, and to reap the financial rewards gained from customers who wanted the freshest (first) catch of the day. The push for speed resulted in a demand for longer and wider schooners. The depth of the hull would remain unchanged because of the shoal (shallow) harbors of Gloucester and other ports. The changes in width and length of the schooner would prove to be dangerous as they led to many tragic losses of vessels and their crews.

In the 1870s, there was a push for increased safety on schooners. First, Gloucester’s wharves were lengthened into deeper water. Then, builders and designers began to modify their hulls, making them deeper (lowering the center of gravity) so they resisted capsizing. The second big change towards safety was the “Knockabout” schooner introduced in 1902. This style had an extended pointed bow that eliminated the need for a bowsprit, also known as “The Widow Maker.” Gloucester’s historic Schooner Adventure is a classic example of a Knockabout.

take part in one fishing expedition, so on April 29, 1930 she left Boston for her first fishing trip to the Banks. In October, the Thebaud’s first race against the larger Bluenose was for the Lipton Cup held off Gloucester. The Bluenose suffered her first defeat in nine years. The Thebaud continued to compete in other races including the International Fisherman’s Cup—the workingman’s version of the America’s Cup—and was conceived to match the best of the Massachusetts fishing fleet against the best of Nova Scotia’s. The next International race was not until 1938, and it was held off Gloucester. Thebaud won three out of five races. A great source of pride for Cape Ann is that today, the Ernestina-Morrissey is the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ official vessel. The schooner, originally named the Effie M. Morrissey is a National Historic Landmark with 120 years of experience in Gloucester’s fishing industry, and even Arctic exploration. She was built in 1894 and is currently undergoing repairs at Boothbay Harbor Shipyard in Maine under the supervision of Harold Burnham. Burnham is a modern-day shipbuilder and designer whose family dates back to the 1630s in Essex, MA. The Schooner Adventure was built in 1926. She provided 27 years of lucrative catches of halibut, cod and haddock off Georges Bank. She is one of only two surviving “knockabouts.” Adventure was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1994, and underwent a substantial restoration in 2012. Enjoy a sail on her today out of Gloucester. Eventually new fishing methods, including dragging open nets behind diesel powered vessels, closed the book on the schooner’s long history. Yet, the love for the beauty and speed of schooners never faded.

CAPE ANN PLEIN AIR: A NEW CHAPTER IN A STORIED ARTS LEGACY

BY TONY SAPIENZA

C

APE ANN BOASTS WHAT MANY BELIEVE IS THE NATION’S OLDEST ART colony, Rocky Neck in Gloucester. Artists are still there today—and they are creating amazing work in galleries and studios in Rockport, downtown Gloucester and throughout Essex and Manchester-by-the-Sea. Some of the most famous artists of the past two centuries have come to this region, many to experience what is known as the unique “Cape Ann light.”

ANOTHER FIRST FOR CAPE ANN Despite this extraordinary cultural legacy, Cape Ann is still breaking new ground. In October 2016, Cape Ann Plein Air (CAPA), a weeklong celebration of outdoor painting, brought artists from across the U.S. for a national competition. The community came together

to add another chapter to the region’s arts and cultural legacy—and that’s no small feat considering Cape Ann’s long, proud arts history. Derived from the French term meaning “open air,” plein air was adopted by the early impressionist painters who brought their equipment and materials out into the field to paint directly from

the landscape in a single sitting. Long before photography was developed, this allowed artists to capture a scene in the most immediate way. The technique was quickly and enthusiastically adopted by American painters and some of the earliest practitioners of American plein air— including the artists of Cape Ann. For many years, there have been plein air competitions throughout the U.S., yet never had there been an event like this on Cape Ann, widely considered the birthplace of plein air painting in the nation. This inaugural plein air competition drew artists from as far away as Hawaii—many of the 40 artists who were

chosen to participate were visiting Cape Ann for the first time.

The reaction was astounding. In early 2017, the organizers—all of Cape Ann’s arts organizations and the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce—began planning a second national competition that promised an even greater experience for plein air painters, for the region’s cultural community, for businesses that support the arts and for art-lovers everywhere. The second annual Cape Ann Plein Air outdoor painting competition took place across nine days in early October 2017. The CAPA 2017 artists drew from 20 states—from Florida to Oregon— and the Canadian province of Quebec. Cape Ann visitors and residents joined

CAPA 2017: BIGGER AND BETTER

An artist’s easel faces a picturesque harbor scene.

For Cape Ann, this competition stands out as one of the community’s cultural highlights of the year. with the CAPA artists at events and activities that took place across all four Cape Ann communities throughout the week. CAPA 2017 began with a “meet the artists” reception at the North Shore Art Association and culminated with a Cape Ann Quick-Draw Competition— open to artists of all ages and skill levels—at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum. A highlight of the week was the Gala Awards Exhibit and Sale at the Rockport Art Association and Museum, where the competition’s winners were announced. Mitch Baird of Arizona took top honors; Neal Hughes of New Jersey and Lisa Egeli of Maryland were awarded second and third place prizes. Rockport’s own John Caggiano received the Artist Spirit Award. In all, 19 prizes totaling more than $20,000 were awarded. In every measure, CAPA 2017 exceeded the previous year’s program, beginning with the number of artists vying for the 40 spots in the competition. In addition, the community saw an increase in sponsors, volunteers, prize money, CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

and events across the region. The competition resulted in over $100,000, in sales for the artists—far surpassing 2016 totals—and inspired dozens of paintings that captured the beauty of Cape Ann. Maybe most impressive was the response from the artists themselves: • “Perhaps one of the strongest plein air events I have ever participated in.” • “Absolutely the high-water mark of the year.” • “Beautiful and iconic settings, awesome artists and top-notch organizers.” • “I have been on Cape Ann my whole life and have painted here for 34 years—I can’t express enough my appreciation and gratitude that there is finally a plein air event here.”

MAKING A MARK ON A LOCAL AND NATIONAL LEVEL For Cape Ann, this competition stands out as one of the community’s cultural highlights of the year. Both the 2017 and

2016 competitions succeeded as a community-wide celebration, involving local artists, businesses and residents, many who volunteered, sponsored events, or hosted visiting CAPA painters. On a national scale, in just two years CAPA has solidified its place among the country’s top plein air competitions. It’s no surprise that plans were soon put in place for the third annual CAPA competition, set for October 2018. Highlights include the Opening Reception at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum on October 7, the Gala Awards Exhibit and Sale at the North Shore Arts Association on October 13, CAPA Art Exhibition on October 14 and 15, and a Quick Draw Painting Competition in downtown Rockport on October 14. Those who visit Cape Ann, and those who call this region home, can expect Cape Ann Plein Air to be part of the fabric of our community for years to come. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating the work of these artists and experience this important facet of the jewel we call Cape Ann. CAPE ANN GUIDE & DIRECTORY 2018–2019

COGSWELL’S GRANT Essex Part of an original land grant made to John Cogswell in 1636, today’s Cogswell’s Grant has been farmed continuously for nearly 400 years. This 165acre coastal farm is also protected land, an open habitat for local and migrating wildlife along the adjacent Essex River. Explore both marshland and rolling hayfields, all while enjoying beautiful views of the river stretching to the sea.

THE LIGHTHOUSES

Annisquam Harbor Lighthouse.

S

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 marker 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 houses 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.

coastal-exposure.com

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.

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” light memorial to mariners who have passed. 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 original 45foot towers were constructed and lit in 1771 making them among the oldest of America’s lighthouses. The stout 124CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM
