We partnered with Mark two years ago for his Faces of The Working Waterfront seARTS Partner with an Artist show here at our dock. It was nice to see him and his lovely wife Becky come out to show some love to Abby and us for her exhibit.
This is Your Boy Joey asking you to come on down and say hi and take it all in (and there will be some fantastic refreshments)
One Page From Abby Ytzen’s Gloucester Fishing 101 Handbook
Click the picture for just one page from Abby’s Gloucester Fishing 101 book which she produced for seARTS Partner With an Artist Program. there will be many panels on eth walls here at our Dock- Captain Joe and Sons 95 East Main St Saturday from 10-2PM
Click on the picture below to see it full sized and learn some interesting facts for yourself. I for one was astounded at the breakdown of how many of each different type of commercial fishing boats there were. 42% of the fleet are lobster boats, I had no idea, but this is just one of the factoids that Abby has broken down. I think if you click on the picture you will get a sense of how easy she made it all to understand even though there is a ton of data in her book and in her exhibit, ANYONE could easily understand it.
-and this is all stuff that anyone that really takes pride in living in Gloucester or loves the fishing industry should know about.
So be sure to stop on by the dock Saturday 10-2PM

Abby Ytzen/Captain Joe and Sons seARTS Partner With An Artist Exhibit May 21st
Blown away! When you can get Pete Mondello, a fisherman for over 50 years excited about a Gloucester fishing industry exhibit you know you’ve done something special.
The way Abby has broken down such an incredible amount of fisheries statistics into an easily digestible visual/artistic/educational/fun presentation with everything you need to know about where Gloucester’s fishing industry has been with data and visuals bringing you right up to the present is nothing short of astounding.
This is an uncomplicated 101 guidebook to Gloucester’s fishing industry which has distilled all the data and will give any person a good basic understanding of what is going on around the Gloucester waterfront. The way it is broken down there is info for people 7 years old to 70 and it is all incredibly interesting. Every person who considers themselves a real “Gloucesterite” NEEDS to come see this exhibit.
