Paul Ciaramitaro Pop Up Show September 3 – 7


How to make something out of nothing! Artist Paul Ciaramitaro Demo and Pop-up show Paul Ciaramitaro, a lifelong resident of Cape Ann, began his love of art as a child. Over the years, he has been influenced by the Renaissance artists as well as Aldro Hibbard, Emile Gruppe, and especially Charles Movalli. In the 1970’s, Paul became a student of Movalli’s and was deeply inspired by him. He told Paul “If you learn something from every painting you do, you will become an artist”. (verify this quote) In between his grueling hours as a commercial fisherman and dockworker, Paul sketched and painted in his spare time and worked hard to glean all that he could from his mentors. His commitment and talent led him to become a well-established and accomplished Cape Ann artist. His paintings have won many awards and his work can be found in both private and corporate collections, as well as in prestigious galleries and museums such as the Cape Ann Museum. Over the past several decades, Paul has taught numerous classes and workshops which have been widely attended, and he has served as a juror for many exhibitions. He is a juried artist member of both the North Shore Arts Association and The Rockport Art Association & Museum. When asked about being an artist Paul says, “I’m serious about it. I’m passionate about it and I love it!” Demonstration September 7, 2pm Space is limited so we do suggest that you sign up early… 11 Pirates Lane • Gloucester MA 01930 • 978.283.1857 • http://www.nsarts.org

Gloucester artist Jeff Weaver was born in 1953 in Framingham, Massachusetts. He began drawing and painting at an early age, and by the age of fourteen he began accepting portrait commissions. In high school he was an award winning young artist, winning competitions in state-wide competitions.

His commercial work spanned many years and includes over thirty murals painted in different parts of the city. Returning to fine art pursuits in the 1990’s Jeff again focused on depicting Gloucester and its environs in various media.
