I’m excited about reading A Day in Rockport at an event with my friend and collaborator in this project, artist Mary Faino. We will be reading the book, talking about the illustrations, and working on a book project with the kids attending the event. Also: A Scavenger Hunt. Who doesn’t love a scavenger hunt? Well, probably lots of people. But if you don’t like them, don’t let me know about it, because we’re having A Day in Rockport Scavenger Hunt! You can follow the clues and take the same path found in the pages of the book, from Millbrook Meadow to the Old Harbor. If you are in Rockport and of a suitable age, or just the kind of person who likes events of this nature, then please come to Rockport Public Library on Wednesday, July 20th at 2pm!
This Saturday: lots of great indie folk, indie rock, World and Americana music, good local grass-fed beef burgers out at the family farm. You should come if you can!
This is for The Roving Home’s upcoming Art Now event this coming Saturday, August 18th at 6pm.

So much to share about The Roving Home’s recent activity: everything from interesting vintage acquisitions to a micro-music festival we were a part of back in the grand state of Ohio over the Labor Day weekend. But first, here’s what’s on my mind right now: a very cool event called Art Now Rockport scheduled for Saturday, September 17th from 7 to 9 p.m. The event features the following: five contemporary artists, an informative presentation by New York-based Art Advisor Lydia Barry Kutko, and a bit of food & drink in a cool low-key setting with deep ties to Rockport’s history. As far as the presentation goes, it will no doubt be both fascinating and informative as Lydia is the whole package: smart, informed, funny and possessing a great aesthetic sense. She will put the work of the five artists in the context of Rockport’s storied art heritage — all while letting the world know that yes, there is contemporary art in Rockport and it still exists as a place that embraces working artists. The setting for the evening is the beautiful & historic home of Abby of 5th Joy — no slouch in the aesthetics department herself.
Artists + Food + Drink + Art Insights = a compelling way to spend your Saturday evening. Tickets are limited, with a percentage benefiting Rockport Art Festivals, so you can have a good time while doing some good.
