John’s Point Landing
Nora Murphy is a fiber artist and author who will be an artist in residence from March 16 through March 30. Fifth-generation Irish-American, Nora Murphy explores Native American genocide and pathways for healing in her book White Birch, Red Hawthorn (University of Minnesota Press, 2017). Currently she’s writing a novel that explores ancient Irish ways to live in closer connection with the earth and one another. Her performance of ancient celebrations of the Spring Equinox (an integral part of the novel she’s writing) is free to the public. Nora’s performance, ‘COUNTERCLOCKWISE: An Irish Celebration to Welcome Spring,’ will take place outdoors by the water on Saturday, March 19 @ 6:00pm at John’s Point Landing, a site along the Gloucester Blueways Water Trail.
