Deck The Docks Flier - Red bg

Today’s Star feature:  Our “Deck Your Walls” Art Gallery (thanks to partner group seARTS!) with over 135 works. seARTS put it best:

We put out the call for art and were FLOODED with response. So the walls will be FILLED with incredible works from incredible artists from Cape Ann and [way] beyond!
It’s a perfect way to get a great gift for the holidays, support Artists and support Maritime Gloucester, and we hope you’ll join us for the show, the reception, and do some of your gift shopping in the BEST way possible!
