Well Strung in Concert

Well Strung in Concert

Cotuit Center for the Arts & Mark Cortale present
WELL-STRUNG
The Singing String Quartet

Well-Strung, featuring Edmund Bagnell (first violin), Christopher Marchant (second violin), Daniel Shevlin (cello) and Trevor Wadleigh (viola), is a string quartet with a modern twist. The group plays universally recognized classical pieces while singing pop music hits from the likes of Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, and other pop stars for a uniquely engaging experience.

The New York Times recently called Well-Strung "A talented quartet of men who sing and play instruments brilliantly fuses pop and classical music from Madonna to Beethoven."

Conceived by Mark Cortale and Christopher Marchant, the foursome formed in 2012 and has since gained international attention. They have been invited to perform at the Vatican in Rome and at a gala for President Obama. Their hit ‘viral’ music video “Chelsea’s Mom” led to a special requested performance for 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton herself. They have also performed with artists such as Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris, Audra McDonald, Deborah Voigt and they were the opening act for Joe Jonas and his band DNCE at Pride Toronto. They have performed twice with the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus and this December they will co-star in two Christmas concerts at Town Hall in Manhattan with the New York City Gay Men's Chorus. The group has received critical acclaim at New York’s prestigious Feinstein's/54 Below and well beyond, from the House of Blues in New Orleans to the Leicester Square Theatre in London.

A quiet time to create . . .

In the quiet of Sandy Neck Beach Park, the rustic cottage at the halfway point stands in the middle of the dunes, marsh and water.  It provides solitude, scenic landscapes and an endless source of beauty and inspiration. The Town of Barnstable, in partnership with the Cape Cod Art Association, offers day excursions to this unspoiled landscape. It is a special place to create and immerse yourself in the great outdoors. From time to time a Sandy Neck Beach Park naturalist will travel out with the group and share their firsthand knowledge and expertise of this “living museum”.

Who is this for?   This artist experience is for the plein air painter, photographer, musician, writer or anyone who craves some time away to create without the usual everyday interruptions.  The cottage is very rustic.  While out you will be exposed to the elements, and need to dress appropriately.

Lost and Found: Mixed Media w/ Jackie Reeves

Lost and Found: The art of letting go of control and embracing process through drawing, painting and collage
Instructor: Jackie Reeves
Day: Saturday, September 29
Time: 9:30am-3:330pm
Cost: $110 Members |$140 Non-members
Skill Level: Some art experience is required, knowledge of the basics of drawing, and composition.
Class maximum: 12
Description:
The goal of this workshop is to loosen up, experiment and play with drawing marks, painting spills, drips, drags, imprints (etc), and collage. The idea is to let go of control and push your limits allowing the materials to take the lead as you aim to develop a small series of artworks by the end of the day. This could potentially serve as a launching pad to give you new direction in your work.Working from your imagination you will begin by creating abstract marks on paper based on your interpretation of my prompts. By allowing yourself to get lost in the process you will make new discoveries for your studio practice. Following your instincts, you will respond to the imagery unfolding before you and begin the process of editing and shaping by cutting, ripping, masking, glazing and painting.

Explore the quiet side of Acadia National Park: Uncrowded | Unexplored | Unexpected

The 2,000-acre Schoodic Peninsula offers a wide array of opportunities to experience Maine’s rugged coast from the cliffs at Raven’s Nest to the summit of Schoodic Head along a spruce and fir trail to the giant slabs of pink granite that extend into the open Atlantic at Schoodic Point.

Nearby the seaside villages of Birch Harbor, Prospect Harbor and the quaint Corea will be an opportunity to photograph classic downeast Maine.

ABOUT WORKSHOP:

“The question is not what you look at, but what you see” Henri David Thoreau

The art of seeing is the active process of observing the world around us with deliberate thoughtfulness. In photography it’s what you do with what you see that counts. Subject matter provides the building blocks while composition acts like glue holding it all together, and light sets the stage for capturing a moment capable of conveying a sense of being there.

The workshop begins on Thursday with an orientation and power point presentation on “The Art of Landscape Photography” covering the aesthetics of photography and technical aspects of digital imaging.

The workshop features approximately 15 hours in the field with 3-hour sessions beginning each day in the pre-dawn and in the afternoons until twilight. Ronald had an intimate knowledge of these regions and designs an itinerary based on habitat, tides, and weather. Walking distances will vary from roadside vantage points to moderate trail hikes.

Complimenting the field experience will be 8-10 hours of classroom time where we will meet each day for an open dialogue covering subjects from capture to post processing and how to create a digital workflow using Lightroom and Photoshop. In the digital age our ability to teach has been considerably enhanced. Individual instruction, viewing images and group critiques to evaluate results is done in an environment that seeks to help you build confidence in your creative and technical skills and become a better photographer.

 Artistic Possibilities with Procreate: Creating Digitally on a Mobile Device
Instructor: Catherine Caddigan
Day: Saturday, October 13th
Time: 9:30am – 3:30pm
Location: Cape Cod Art Center – 3480 Route 6A, Barnstable, MA 02630
Cost: $110 Members | $140 Non-Members
This workshop requires an iPad, we will be downloading Apps from the App Store. Bring a variety of imagery that you want to work with on your iPad. (You can photograph your material, with your iPad camera or your phone or scan it and transfer it to your iPad in advance of the workshop) Imagery of any kind should work, but background material and textures are helpful.
Procreate is a very powerful standalone drawing App with over 200 brushes, but for our purposes, one can create a work of art in just a few hours. We will start in a tutorial format, with live demonstration of some of the features of Procreate. There will be a slide presentation as well, and time for questions. Some of the techniques we will cover are layering, masking, color adjustment, importing imagery, painting, erasing and blending.
There will be a break for lunch.
From there we will move into our own projects, and experiment with Procreate and some of the ways it can interact with other apps. I hope to be able to give you pointers and share some techniques that I use. We will finish by sharing and talking about the work from the day.
Bio: Catherine Caddigan is an artist who has practiced many forms of photography. She received her MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a concentration in photography and printmaking. Currently she is concentrating on Mobile Art. For the past few years she exhibits works created with mobile devices. She is inspired by collage artists of the 20th century, and strives to express more than a simple capture. Her layering and collage technique is meant to observe culture today, in all its complexity. She feels that the mobile devices of today are a reflection of the information driven culture.

It all starts with the light… and the Cape has a special quality of light.  Here it interacts with the convergence of land and sea, the salty atmosphere, a variety of coastal environments and distinctive subject matter, all of which make this place unique.  In this brand new workshop, we’ll explore Cape light from pre-dawn to deep night, to experience the essence of this place and craft meaningful images — images with feeling, that come from the heart.

Professional landscape photographer and night shooting expert Mark Bowie will lead this power-packed workshop on the innovative techniques he uses for taking extraordinary landscape imagery.  He will lead day and night photography field sessions to some of the Cape’s finest scenery: the ocean, beaches, dunes, coastal waterways, lighthouses and fishing villages.  Our schedule and selection of shooting locations will remain flexible to take best advantage of the weather and lighting conditions.  Indoor instructional sessions will be held at the Cape Cod Art Center in Barnstable.  Mark will explore the beautiful interaction of light and subject that speaks to somewhere deep within us.  He’ll also offer strategies, tips and techniques for the field and the digital darkroom on:

 

  • The quality, direction and color of light
  • Reading weather and shooting the light
  • The interaction of light and subject matter
  • Shooting at sunrise, sunset, twilight and at night
  • Photographing the night landscape in relation to the celestial skies
  • Seeing from different vantage points
  • Designing and fine-tuning powerful compositions using the principles of visual flow, dynamic tension, balance, leading lines, shapes and patterns
  • Using exposure to control mood and atmosphere
  • Determining exposure at night
  • Achieving critical focus-day and night
  • Using Live View
  • Working creatively with your full suite of lenses
  • Varying shutter speed for artistic effect
  • Targeting color and tonal palettes
  • The artistry of long exposures
  • Creating expressionistic abstracts
  • Shooting multiple exposures — layer masks, HDR’s, panoramas, star trails and time-lapse sequences — and blending them with state-of-the-art software
  • Focus stackingto maximize depth of field
  • Processing images for maximum impact

Informative and inspiring, this workshop is geared for both amateur and advanced photographers who want to take their landscape imagery to new levels.  Join Mark to explore the wonders of Cape Cod light.  “Find the light and shoot what’s in it.”

 

Bio:

Mark Bowie is a professional nature photographer, writer and much sought after public speaker.  His work has been published internationally in books, on calendars and posters, and in advertising media.  His first two coffee table books, Adirondack Waters and In Stoddard’s Footsteps have become landmark regional publications.  They were followed by The Adirondacks: In Celebration of the Seasons.  He is an expert on night photography and has produced two comprehensive e-books on it: The Light of Midnight: Photographing the Landscape at Night, and After Midnight: Night Photography by Example.  He has also produced an e-book on his remarkable Finding November project, his search to find the hidden beauty of this under-appreciated month.  For more on his work, see www.markbowie.com.

Photo Equipment Suggestions

In addition to all your basic equipment like cameras and lenses, I consider the following items important.  You can learn more about them at the workshop, but I made this checklist as a reminder to bring them if you already own them.  Items essential to this workshop are in bold:

Camera  – and extra camera body if you have one, just in case.

Lenses – Lenses from wide-angle zooms to telephotos will be of use on this workshop.  Also consider bringing your other favorite lenses, including macro and fast super wide-angle lenses in the 14-24mm range, especially for night photography.

Tripod – Light levels are usually too low early in the day and at night to photograph properly without a sturdy tripod.  If you need to purchase one, I can offer recommendations.  Hunt’s Photo often offers discount specials to my students.

Lots of Memory Card Storage.

Camera Battery Charger and Extra Batteries.

Non-abrasive Lens Cleaning Cloth and Wipes.

Polarizing Filter

Neutral Density (ND) Filters, Graduated Neutral Density Filters – To extend exposure times.  I use Tiffen 3- and 6-stop IR neutral density filters.  See www.tiffen.com.  Lee Filters also makes quality filters.  See www.leefilters.com.

Graduated Neutral Density Filters – Primarily for daytime use.  I use Singh-Ray 2-stop soft and 3-stop hard-edge graduated filters.  See www.singh-ray.com/grndgrads.html.

Shutter Release ­­– You can use a locking cable release, a wireless remote, or the camera’s self-timer (usually good only for exposures up to 30 seconds).  Shutter releases are available for specific camera models, from simple units that only trip the shutter, to more advanced units that allow the photographer to program exposure time, count down the exposure, shoot multiple exposures and timed intervals. These are available from photo retailers, including Hunts Photo and Video.  I use a wireless remote shutter release, the hahnel Giga T Pro II, about $99.

Intervalometer – For time-lapse photography.  If you are a Canon shooter, consider the Canon TC-80N3 Remote timer, or an equivalent. See

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/164271-REG/Canon_2477A002_Timer_Remote_Controller_TC_80N3.html.

 

Here’s a less expensive alternative, but identical in structure and function: http://www.amazon.com/Cowboystudio-Timer-Remote-Control-Shutter/dp/B003PFYKGW/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1378831815&sr=8-6&keywords=canon+remote+timer.

 

 

Many Nikons have a built-in intervalometer, or you can use the Nikon MC-36A Multi-Function Remote Cord, about $190.  See http://www.huntsphotoandvideo.com/detail_page.cfm?ProductID=27032&mfg=Nikon&show=yes.  My hahnel Giga T Pro II remote has the same features for about half the price.

Flashlights &/or Headlamp – preferably with a red light, or cover with a red filter to prevent stray light from distracting others during night photography sessions.  Bring both small and large lights for light painting.  Bring other light sources, like LED’s or glow sticks, for painting with wild colors.

Rain/snow Cover – For camera and lens protection.  An inexpensive plastic shower cap works well in many instances.

Heat wraps – placed around the lens barrel to inhibit condensation.  I use Therma-Care heat wraps and similar brands.  About $5 for a box of 3.

Small towel, cloth or gaffer’s tape for covering the viewfinder to prevent light leak during long exposures.  Most cameras come with a viewfinder cover, but they’re often inconvenient to use.

Battery-powered Alarm Clock/Watch

Cell Phone.

 

Computer Equipment Suggestions

Laptop Computer – I highly recommend bringing your own laptop computer for downloading, processing and viewing your images.

Processing Software – Good choices include Adobe Lightroom, Elements, and Photoshop. We use Adobe’s Creative Cloud Photography Plan, about $10/month.  Free 30-day trials of these programs are available from Adobe.

To create time-lapse movies you may also want the following software:

  1. Lightroom. A free trial version is available at https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=photoshop_lightroom

 

  1. QuickTime Pro: $29.99. Available at: http://www.apple.com/quicktime/extending/
  2. LRTimelapse: The free down load will allow you to load up to 400 images: http://lrtimelapse.com/download/.This software is particularly good at reducing flicker.

Back-up device – Such as an external hard drive.

Clothing & Outdoor Gear Suggestions

Warm Clothing – It is preferable to dress in warm layers for field trips as temperatures can change significantly and quickly.  Night can be very chilly at this time of year.

Warm Jacket or Coat.

Fleece Underlayer/Wool Sweater – Can be added or removed as the temperature falls or rises.

Rain Jacket & Pants – For wind as well as rain protection.

Warm Gloves/Mittens, Hat, and Hiking Boots or Sneakers.  Several pairs of warm, moisture-wicking socks.  Two pair of footwear is wise, in case one gets wet.  Sandals or muck boots are great for getting in the ocean and streams.

Hand Warmers.  Foot warmers.

Dress for the indoor sessions will be casual.

Other Suggestions

Water bottle.

Energy bars or other snacks.

Sunset trips: 2 PM- After sunset
Sept 7
Sept 23
Oct 5
Oct 21

COST: Day Trip $70 Members/$95 Non-Members
Proceeds benefit the SNB house at the Halfway Point program
 

Application: SNB Art Excursion 2018

A quiet time to create . . .

In the quiet of Sandy Neck Beach Park, the rustic cottage at the halfway point stands in the middle of the dunes, marsh and water.  It provides solitude, scenic landscapes and an endless source of beauty and inspiration. The Town of Barnstable, in partnership with the Cape Cod Art Association, offers day excursions to this unspoiled landscape. It is a special place to create and immerse yourself in the great outdoors. From time to time a Sandy Neck Beach Park naturalist will travel out with the group and share their firsthand knowledge and expertise of this “living museum”.

Who is this for?   This artist experience is for the plein air painter, photographer, musician, writer or anyone who craves some time away to create without the usual everyday interruptions.  The cottage is very rustic.  While out you will be exposed to the elements, and need to dress appropriately.

When can I go?   Trips are often scheduled for September and October as the colors in the marsh are heightened by the sun, as well as early and late spring.  You will be transported by a Beach Ranger for the 3.5 mile drive through the dunes.   The excursions are six hours long, either 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. or a later departure with an after sunset return.  For full details and FAQ’s, visit:  www.CapeCodArtCenter.org or www.HyArtsDistrict.com.

How do I sign up?   The cost of a day trip is $70.  If you are not a Cape Cod Art Center member, there is an additional excursion fee of $25 per trip.   Participants have asked if they can give more and others have donated a portion of the proceeds they made from the sale of one of their art pieces created while out at the Halfway House.  All donations are welcome.  Donations and program fees directly support this program.  Complete the application form and mail or email your form to the indicated address.

 

Applications will be considered as they are received.  Excursion dates will be filled on a first-come first-served basis. A maximum of ten people can be transported out to the cabin for a day. Trips may be postponed or cancelled due to low enrollment or inclement weather.  If this is the case, participants will receive a full refund. Cancellations by a participant up to two weeks prior to date, will receive a refund less $25 processing fee. Cancellations by participant within two weeks of excursion will only receive a refund if spot is filled.  A processing fee of $25 will be charged.

Monotype/Painterly Print Workshop with Joyce Zavorskas

Monotype/Painterly Print Workshop with Joyce Zavorskas

Monotype/Painterly Print
Instructor: Joyce Zavorskas
Dates: August 10-11, Friday & Saturday (optional third day, Sunday August 12, 9am-3pm)
Time:  9am-3pm
Cost: $245 Members | $275 Non-members (includes the $25 materials fee). Additional third day $110 Members | $125 Non-members
*Workshop can not be purchased as Sunday only
Location: Zavorskas Studio, Orleans (exact address will be emailed separately upon registration).
Description:
Monotypes are paintings on smooth acrylic plates transferred to paper once only. Artists ranging from Edgar Degas, Pablo Picasso, Ross Moffett, and more recently Joan Snyder and Michael Mazur have used the monotype medium to express a more spontaneous and evocative range of drawing, painting and printmaking combinations.
Students will make painterly spontaneous images on acrylic plates using small rubber brayers, brushes, Oil Bars, or stencils, and oil base etching ink. Dampened 100% rag paper placed on top of the inked plate, and passed through the press with gentle pressure, results in a unique impression that is intimately and permanently bonded with the fibers of the paper. Overprinting and contemporary experimental approaches with larger rollers produce magical surprises. The glistening layers of radiant ink create truly unique images with depth, mystery, memory and delight. Demonstrations each day will help to develop individual explorations. Beginner to advanced students are welcome. Clean-up will be with baby oil, Gamsol or or Simple Green.

Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka

Cape Cod Kids on Broadway features Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka at the Barnstable Comedy Club. The theater group is producing a full-length musical in four short weeks from start to finish with a talented group of teens and youth. The delicious adventures experienced by Charlie Bucket on his visit to Willy Wonka’s mysterious chocolate factory light up the stage in this captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl’s fantastical tale. Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka follows enigmatic candy manufacturer, Willy Wonka, as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats: the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory… or suffer the consequences. Gwen Bainier is the director of Willy Wonka, Lisa Taylor is the musical director and Jessica Ann McDowell (JAM) is the lighting designer.

Making Masks w/ Barbara Braman
Aug

10:00 AM10:00

Making Masks w/ Barbara Braman

 Making Masks

Instructor: Barbara Braman

Day: Saturday, August 4th

Time: 10am-1pm

Cost: Members $70 | Non-Members $90



Description:

What is a mask? In digital art, a mask is a tool to let you do something to a part of the image but not the whole. 



What sort of something? Anything. You can change the exposure in a dark area of the image. You can smooth only the skin. You can make part of the image black and white. You can blur the background.



You can ADD things to an image. You can add a texture to the background. You can add an object. You can REMOVE or REPLACE things from an image. 



We are going to focus on making masks in two apps: iColorama and Procreate. I will also show you a simple way to cut out objects from photos that is useful for composite images. Different apps work in different ways, and different masking techniques work better for certain types of jobs. After you are comfortable with basic masking, we will explore some more advanced masking techniques.



*This is an intermediate level class. Some experience with creating mobile digital art, using any app, is necessary.
