Good Jobs are Plentiful in the Maritime Industry!

A last minute invitation was kindly accepted, and brought Dennis Murphy to the museum on Sunday, August 31 to spread the word  about "Exploring Possible Careers in the Maritime Industry."   This was a very interesting discussion that is particularly relevant to 16 to 26 year olds, who may not have embarked on any particular career path.  Dennis said "If someone is willing to work hard and follow instructions" there are lots of varied and well paying jobs available in the industry.

Lindstedt/LaPointe Artist's Reception June 7th

Photos were a challenge trying to circumvent the glare on the glass required for framing watercolors, and don't do the artwork justice.  This show will be at the Museum through June.

Do yourself a favor and make it a point to stop in and lose yourself in a beautiful show by 4 very talented artists!  There is no admission charge to view our monthly shows, and it's a rare opportunity to see the fine work by done by local artists.  

Doreen Lindstedt on the left and Cecile LaPointe on the right are interrupted for a quick photo
Visitors to the reception partake of the table of goodies

I know, I know....let's see the ART!

 A quiet beauty from the hand of Doreen Lindstedt.

 Another strange angle to capture Cecile LaPointe's lovely landscape with minimal glare.

 Steve Lindstedt's handsome metal fish sculptures.....

May 2 Artist's Reception-Morris Grover and Mark Cheney - Free admission for this show through May

Ever seen the work of a photographer who sees with a painter's eyes?  What you get is far more than a photo.  Morris Grover is that kind of photographer and you will be missing out if you don't stop in to see this lovely and fascinating show.

  Morris Grover greets visitors at the reception.

Entranced viewer......

Mark Cheney has created driftwood fish with personality!  The photos below are simply teasers, because you need to see these guys in person to enjoy them properly.
