A reception will be held on April 9, 2015 at 4:30 pm. In regards to this solo exhibition The Mayor’s Race: Photographs of the Gloucester Schooner Race 2011 – 2014, Miller says, “Over Labor Day weekend, for the past four years, I have had the privilege to travel back in time to the age of sail by photographing the Mayor’s Race during the Gloucester Schooner Festival. Dwarfed in my thirteen-foot chase boat, these beautiful, graceful and powerful vessels allow me to witness what others saw over a century ago. This past year the Schooner Brilliant participated in the Mayor’s Race and I once again captured her in photographs and watched as she won in her class”.

Annual Seed Swap!
Looking to spice up your garden this year without breaking the bank? Have some extra seed packets lying around? Then the Backyard Growers Annual Seed Swap is for you! For the meager price of your wrinkled, abandoned seed packets from seasons past, you can walk away with a plethora of new seeds beyond your wildest garden dreams!  The idea is simple: bins for each type of vegetable will be arranged and labeled. Simply drop your seed offering into the correct bin, then start browsing! If you find some seeds you like, pour as many as you will use into provided envelopes (Don't forget to label them! Your future self will thank you!).  Also available will be guides and demos for starting your seeds indoors (a must for tomatoes, eggplant and peppers).
