If you’ve visited this website lately (you are one of a very select few), you may have noticed that little has been updated of late. It’s true. I have been neglecting the site.
Time & Tide has been going through a year of transition, and it isn’t over yet.
In January I closed the Market Street gallery for purely financial reasons. I really loved operating that gallery. It introduced me to some of the most interesting and talented people I have ever known. It was a great two and a half years.
In April Time & Tide teamed up with Post Road Framers in Rowley to present monthly exhibitions by my favorite artists in Post Road’s gallery space. It has been a fine experience, and has been a great way for me to keep in “my hand in the game” as they say. Working with Gail and Karl Kastorf has been rewarding and educational. I’m grateful for the opportunity, and I hope it has been as positive experience for them as it has for me.
However, at the end of the December show at Post Road Framers, “Small Packages,” a group show small works by this terrifically creative group of artists I’ve come to know and love, I will once again move on.
Work is under way to open a new kind of gallery and gift shop back in downtown Ipswich. The deal is still in the working stages, and it’s possible that it may come up against obstacles that will slow things down. But as soon as I know anything, I will trumpet the news from the antique rooftops of Ipswich.
The adventure continues…!
