Hyannis HyArts Shanty dates:  August 19-25

Coastal Glass Infusion:  Philip Pariseau
Phil’s early interest in glass began with a glass blowing class more than 20 years ago and has developed into a new passion for creating kiln formed pieces of art and unique glass gifts.  Combining various techniques of fusing, raking, temperature manipulation and slumping glass, his pieces often produce a flow that results in a unique design to capture light beautifully.  He fuses the warmth and the beautiful color pallet of Cape Cod to create distinctive works of art glass including votive candle holders, plates, sculptures, wall hangings, wine coasters and business card holders.  Many pieces are one of a kind.
Hyannis HyArts Shanty dates: May 24-27

Danza: www.jenb.org/clothing

Her studies not only spawned an interest for the graphic arts, but also for photography, printmaking and book binding. After returning to the Cape five years ago she began linocut printing. Her entire process is by hand, from the drawing to the carving and printing. Her subject matter is generally objects or creatures that are inspired by her life or experiences. She strives to create unique pieces that combine simplicity to charismatic design.

Hyannis HyArts Shanty dates: July 1-14, September 2-29

David Rina: www.DavidRina.com
“My art is a reflection of my deep love of the outdoors, and my passion for the ocean and all the life it gives. I've been a catch and release fisherman since I was a little kid, when I used to take my dog and fly rod and go chase tiny little native brook trout behind my house where I grew up in Westchester County, New York. The older I got, the bigger the fish got, and once I was old enough to venture out on my own and explore the surrounding coastline, I was instantly "hooked" for life."
Hyannis HyArts Shanty dates: July 15-22, July 22-28, and July 29-August 4

Joyce Sullivan: www.brownigirl.com
“I am a native of Massachusetts and have involved in many forms of art all of my life. Now living on beautiful Cape Cod, I find inspiration at every turn.  I find inspiration from the ocean, hiking outdoors, kayaking and spending time in my gardens on Cape Cod, my family and my travels abroad. My letterpress work is done in conjunction with my daughter in CA using old print blocks from the 1800’s that were formally the property of the Barnstable Patriot Newspaper.  They are truly a treasure from days gone by.”
Hyannis HyArts Shanty dates:  July 17-23, July 29-Aug 4, August 12-18

Creative Post Processing w/ John Klingel
Jul
27
9:00 AM09:00

Creative Post Processing w/ John Klingel

Location: Off-site held in Eastham. Instructor will email you the address

Digital photography gives us an opportunity to take relatively normal photos and turn them in to masterpieces. In this workshop, we’ll go beyond normal post processing and look at creative post processing.

We’ll start by looking at post processing in general. We’ll first discuss corrections that might be needed to improve composition. The next goal will be to help you understand how to look at a photo to determine what needs to be done. One of the basic objectives is to determine where you want the viewer’s eye to go. So we’ll discuss how to direct the viewer’s eye. And as often there are distracting elements pulling the viewer’s eye where you don’t want it, we’ll discuss ways of removing elements or reducing their intensity.

Then we’ll review a number of tools that you can use in creative post processing and demo how these tools can be used to maximize a photograph’s potential. These tools will include Photoshop, Lightroom as well as, a number of plug-ins and pre-sets, including NIK, DxO Optics Pro, Topaz, On-One and others. You’ll be amazed at how much punch and “wow factor” you can add to your photographs. While most of the discussion will center on post processing color, the workshop will also cover B&W conversion and combining B&W with selective color.

This session is designed to stimulate your creativity and help you create photos that have that “wow” factor.

Joe Diggs: A Tribute to Joe’s Twin Villa

It’s time to party!  Cotuit Center for the Arts invites you to a multi-sensory tribute to the iconic Cape Cape Cod establishment – Joe’s Twin Villa – featuring renowned local artist Joe Diggs.

This visual, musical, and culinary celebration will bring back memories of wonderful times at this popular landmark.

 What:  Joe Diggs: A Tribute to Joe’s Twin Villa

When:  Saturday, August 3, 2019        2:00 pm -11:00 pm

Free Admission

For those of you unfamiliar with Joe’s Twin Villa, the Osterville hotspot was owned and operated by generations of Joe Diggs’ family (it was named after his grandfather). Although it is now closed, it will long be remembered by its many Cape regulars for its down-home atmosphere, food, drink, and music.

On August 3rd, you can enjoy the spirit of this Cape landmark through a great lineup of bands, singers, dancing and food highlighted by Joe’s exciting artwork. In powerful mixed media works that combine action painting, photography, graffiti and collage, Diggs’ art explores what it means to be a black man in America. “To me painting is magic,” he writes on his website. “Images appear out of nothing, blobs of color transform themselves to a new meaning”.

Joe will emcee a great lineup of musical guests from around the Cape that will get you on your feet! And don’t worry about dinner, because great food and beverages will be available for purchase.

The Upper Gallery will feature a juried exhibition, ‘Proud 2 Be American’, presenting the works of local artists as selected by jurors Joe Diggs and Maura Williams, Curator of the Brattleboro Museum, Battleboro, VT.

Both exhibits run through September 2nd.

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.

Becoming More Skilled in Digital Photography Workshop w/ John Klingel

9:00 AM09:00

Becoming More Skilled in Digital Photography Workshop w/ John Klingel

Location: Offsite in Eastham (Location will be emailed by instructor)

If you have a digital camera and you’re interested in improving your photographic skills and knowledge, this workshop offers an overview of various areas you need to learn more about. If you want to do more than point-and-shoot with a digital camera, you need to learn about various aspects of digital cameras and the techniques used to take a good photo. The primary objective of this seminar is to show you all the various aspects of digital photography that you will eventually need to learn to master if you’re interested in improving your skills. This seminar is for people who don’t use manual settings, don’t shoot in RAW, don’t understand depth of field, don’t understand basic composition and don’t use software to post process their photos. And it’s also a good introduction to digital for people who have always used film.

We’ll start with the camera and talk about some of the important features of digital cameras that many people don’t use but should. Topics will include: An explanation of why cameras don’t see what the eye sees. Why shooting in RAW is important. Why you need to use manual settings to achieve proper exposure and understanding depth of field. What white balance and ISO settings to use and why the quality of light is more important than the quantity of light. You’ll also learn how to read a histogram and why it plays so important a part in producing good photographs.

I’ll also discuss some of the basic aspects of composition along with what’s involved with shooting back-lit objects, motion, bright objects, macros, and other difficult shooting situations. Most shots, even by professionals, can be improved significantly with post-processing. We’ll go through many of the adjustments you can make in post-processing. The focus here will be on giving you an understanding of what you can easily do in post-processing and how to develop skills in this area. And we’ll review various software packages that are available for post-processing .

Each session will begin with a focused demonstration followed by individual guidance throughout the session while participants explore various techniques and visual approaches for translating their observations with this versatile and expressive, and sometimes unpredictable and surprising medium. Workshops will be conducted outside, weather-permitting.
In case of rain, flowers from the garden will be taken indoors.
For all levels.

Brazen Belles Summer Striptacular!

The Brazen Belles are one of New England’s premiere Burlesque troupes. These dangerous flirts, rowdy rabble-rousers, and saucy comediennes have been teasing their way throughout the country to sold out audiences since 2012. Winners of the Las vegas Burlesque Festival in 2015, They also performed at The Burlesque Hall of Fame’s “Movers, Shakers and Innovators” showcase 2016. The Belles bring a variety of talents: singing, dancing, wit, sass, and of course seduction to the stage. They will have you laughing, lusting, and longing for more!

Queens of the corset, sirens of the stage, dolls of the dance floor! WE ARE YOUR VILLAGE VAUDEVILLE.

Burlesque is a diverse form of entertainment pulling theatrical, dance, and sketch comedy elements from many historical eras together to provide a creative spin on society’s traditional, and often oppressive, stereotypes of women. While the art of burlesque includes acts of a sexual nature, the goal of performing these expressions is never intended to be offensive of harmful to others, but rather empowering, particularly to women, by embracing the existence of female sexuality in light of differing body types, genders, race and ethnicity, upbringings, and so on. Our troupe stands in firm belief that this beautiful art form is relevant in its mission and provides important empowerment to our friends, family, local community and Beyond!

Schuyler Grant Trio at the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar

Schuyler Grant Trio at the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar

Schuyler Grant, (born January 16, 1990) is an American songwriter and performer based out of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

Working with Grammy-nominated producer Jon Evans (Tori Amos, Sarah Mclaughlin), Schuyler released his first studio EP, “Moving On” (available now at www.schuylergrantmusic.bandcamp.com), in May of 2016. Called “gritty and soulful” by one reviewer, “Moving On” explores the softer side of Grant’s songwriting, drawing much inspiration from likes of Bob Dylan and Ray LaMontagne.

Grant’s second LP is a departure from the folk-inspired songwriting of his first, replacing the gentle ballads of “Moving On” with a rough and tumble exploration of the harder, blues driven rock and roll the songwriter holds close to heart. “It is the music I have always wanted to play— growing up on Clapton, Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin, I developed a love for fuzzed-out guitar riffs at an early age,” Grant laughs. Working with Bradley Conant on percussion and again with Evans on bass, the album was released at the end of 2017 (available at www.schuylergrantmusic.bandcamp.com).

to Sep 8

The Nature of Cape Cod w/ John Tunney

Location: Orleans based (location will be emailed by instructor)

Join us for a special workshop photographing the natural beauty and wildlife of Cape Cod, including whales, seals, shorebirds and more. Instructor John Tunney will guide you from dawn to dusk through some of Cape Cod’s most scenic and fertile shooting grounds. Exploring the Lower and Outer Cape on land and water we’ll photograph unspoiled beaches, marshes and landscapes rich with coastal flora and fauna. The workshop includes a whale watch tour to photograph whales and other sea life, and a private boat tour through one of the Cape’s most scenic bays to photograph seals, birds and coastal scenes. Along the way you’ll learn techniques and tips for using your camera and lenses, composition and editing that will help take your images to a new level. The workshop also includes critiques and brief technical sessions with information about Cape Cod’s landscape and wildlife.

This workshop always sells out so book early!

What You’ll Photograph:
Beaches, birds, seals, whales, dunes, boats, harbors and marshes

What You’ll Learn:
Tips and techniques for nature, landscape and wildlife photography, and editing with Lightroom and Photoshop

What to Bring:
– Lenses: A range of wide angle to telephoto. Bring a macro if you have one
– Extra memory cards
– Extra battery and battery charger
– Tripod (It’s optional during the day, but you’ll need it for evening shoots)
– Remote shutter release (optional. your self-timer can be used instead)
Filters – Recommended, but not required: polarizer, UV and a neutral density filter or filters for long exposures
– Flashlight
– Bug spray
– Clothing – Typical summer stuff. Think layers. It will probably be warm to hot in the daytime and little cooler in the evening and early morning. Bring a poncho or other rain gear. A hat comes in handy.
– Footwear: Sneakers or sandals should be fine for most locations. A pair of duck shoes could be useful, too. We’ll often be near water, so there’s a good chance your feet may get wet.
– Laptop loaded with Photoshop, Elements or Lightroom, or your editor of choice
– Flash drive
– 10 +/- -pictures from home. These can be a combination of good, bad and
ugly. We learn from mistakes – our own and those made by others – so don’t be shy.

Acadia, Schoodic & Mount Desert Isle Photography w/ John Tunney & Betty Wiley

Join us for a special 5-day/4-night workshop on the beautiful coast of Maine as we photograph Acadia National Park, the Schoodic Peninsula and Mount Desert Island. The workshop includes lodging for four nights and all meals (except one lunch and dinner in Bar Harbor) and a lobster dinner (alternatives available).

We’ll be based at the Schoodic Institute near Schoodic Point. Known as the quiet side of Acadia, the Schoodic Peninsula offers a variety 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. Seaside villages such as Birch Harbor, Prospect Harbor and the quaint Corea feature scenes of classic downeast Maine – fishing boats, lobster traps, working docks and more. On Mount Desert Island, we’ll explore picturesque locales such as Bar
Harbor, the Acadia coast, Jordan Pond, Eagle Lake, as well as places off the beaten track.

Most days will begin with a sunrise and morning shoot, then break and free time around lunch, editing classroom lessons, discussion and reviews in the afternoon, and a late afternoon/early evening shoot.
We’ll also have an optional night shoot. The weather, sun, moon and tides will guide our itinerary.

With two instructors and a limit of 12 students, you’ll have plenty of time for personalized instruction. John and Betty will offer tips and techniques in the field and classroom to help you get the most out of
your workshop and develop your skills. Instruction includes:
– Classic and creative landscape photography
– Long exposure and camera movement
– Depth of field
– Night photography
– Use of filters
– Processing in Lightroom, Photoshop and other programs.

What’s Included:
– Four nights lodging at the Schoodic Institute. All participants will have their own private bedroom in a shared apartment. Accommodations include WiFi, DirectTV, hard line telephones, fully equipped kitchens, as well as dining and living rooms.
– All meals except one lunch and one dinner in Bar Harbor.

2ND Wednesday Theater at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

2ND Wednesday Theater at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

2nd Wednesday Theater: a monthly play-reading of rarely-performed classics, undiscovered gems, old chestnuts, and exciting new works.

An enhanced reading of the cult classic The Bad Seed is set to scare CCftA audiences on October 16. Before The Bad Seed was a Hollywood hit, it was a Broadway play, and before it was a play, it was a novel. The reading, directed by Jo Brisbane, will also draw comparisons between these three major versions of The Bad Seed, which has been described as “a chilling study of evil…totally mesmeric." Fans of the play will enjoy the camp of its melodrama and dark humor. Brisbane also promises a special prize for the best Rhoda Penmark look-alike costume, and a special Best Penmanship Award.

The Bad Seedis a play “dramatized” by Maxwell Anderson (in 1955), and is based on The Bad Seed, a book written by William March (in 1954). Screenwriter John Lee Mahin wrote the movie adaptation, which was directed by Mervyn LeRoy for Warner Brothers Pictures (in 1956).

Cape Cod Landscapes:  The Art of Seeing Creatively w/ Mark Bowie

Cape Cod Landscapes: The Art of Seeing Creatively w/ Mark Bowie

Photographically, what makes Cape Cod landscapes so special, is how light interacts with this convergence of land and sea. Learning to see the possibilities and then translate them into images can elevate our picture-taking from the commonplace to the artistic. Professional landscape photographer and night shooting expert Mark Bowie will lead this power-packed workshop to explore the Cape from pre-dawn to deep night, visiting some of its finest scenery: the ocean, beaches, dunes, coastal waterways, lighthouses and fishing villages. He’ll cover in-depth the fine art of seeing, offering innovative strategies, tips and techniques for looking deeper, refining your personal vision to creative images with feeling, that come from the heart.



We will typically shoot for several hours around sunrise and sunset each day, and other times as favorable lighting conditions present themselves. We’ll also photograph the moody blues of twilight and the Cape’s magnificent night sky. The landscape, so varied and photogenic in daylight, becomes ever-more mysterious and enchanting at night. Our schedule and selection of shooting locations will remain flexible to take best advantage of the weather and lighting conditions.

Salon of Shorts - July

Salon of Shorts - July

Ongoing: 3rd Wednesday of every month, 7:30pm
Cotuit Center for the Arts offers an open mic series called Salon of Shorts on the third Wednesday of each month in the Art Studio. Award-winning poets, playwrights, and spoken word performers Christine Rathbun Ernst and Gregory Hischak host the series, which encompasses all types of performances: poetry, storytelling, essay reading, music, performance art, improv, and stand-up.

“Everyone has in them five minutes of good storytelling, song, stand-up—even genius,” said Ernst.

“This is the perfect venue to try something new,” said Ernst, “to try out new material, and to find a new audience.”

Teaming with Ernst is Gregory Hischak, who has been hosting an open mic at O’Shea’s in West Yarmouth until recently.

“I have wanted to do an open mic on the mid-Cape for a long time,” said Ernst, “and, when Greg became available after the O’Shea’s open mic ended, I was eager to involve him in this new project. I am a big fan of his work and we have a complimentary performance style.”

Both Ernst and Hischak will perform at Salon of Shorts, which has already attracted considerable interest from local poets and musicians.

Gregory Hischak’s book, “Parts & Labour,” was published in 2012. It contains poetry, a play, and an interview the author. His poetry has been published in “Bellingham Revue,” “Green Mountain Review,” “Mid-America Poetry Review,” “Third Coast,” and other journals. He has toured and performed with spoken word troupes and has written several plays which had been performed by regional theaters across the country. His play, “Center of Gravity” was the 2010 winner of the Clauder Prize for New England Playwrights and was a 2011 finalist with the Massachusetts Cultural Council for playwriting, in addition to other awards.

Christine Rathbun Ernst’s recent shows include “The Fat Ass Cancer Bitch” and “The Fat Ass Cancer Bitch Goes Shopping,” which she has performed to sold-out audiences across the Cape. She will present her third show in the series at CCftA this summer. She describes her work as “the funny unapologetic, wickedly honest, poignant, hell-bent, pissed-off one breasted, loudmouth story of one woman’s examined life witty quirky unforgettable theatre of self-discovery, good story-telling, and pointed social commentary.” She has performed one-woman shows and at open mics throughout New England and is a two-time Mass Cultural Council Artist Grant finalist.

Each performer is limited to five minutes, including set-up.

Admission to Salon of Shorts is free.

Tickets are $5 per garden, purchased in advance at Sturgis Library (3090 Main Street Rte. 6A) or at the entrance to each garden.  Cash only on tour days.
Don’t forget to visit our Garden Boutique at the 61 Rendezvous Lane property for a great shopping experience.  There will be garden-related items including artwork, pottery, soaps, tabletop planters, jewelry, scarves, decor, and much more!  

Garden Descriptions
Meander Through This Family Property61 Rendezvous Lane, Barnstable VillageParking:  Please park on the house side of street only.Well established gardens surround this charming Cape home and compound belonging to the same family for five generations.Enjoy the sweeping views of the fields and distant bay. View the arbor with climbing roses, the hedges along the property, and a large vegetable garden. Not to be missed is the glorious 57 year old trumpet vine planted by the current owners’ grandparents in 1962.While there are no hydrangeas on the property, the perennial gardens have essentially remained the same since 1929. A family member states, “…the Big House has been long famed for it’s 100 year old roses, now well past that venerable age and still a sight to behold”.  The owners are instructing the roses to be in perfect bloom for your viewing pleasure!Visitors are invited to walk through the yard and down the grass driveway to view additional gardens and views at house #49. The family requests you do not visit the red house at #39 as it is not part of the tour.

Sweeping Vistas
59 Otter Lane, Barnstable VillageParking:  Please park on right side of the circle or on street as space allows.This lovely, newly built seaside home is at the end of a quiet lane in the Cummaquid section of Barnstable. As you enter this beautiful property, notice the stunning specimen of a Bloodgood Japanese maple tree and ornamental shrubs that frame the front of the house. Notice the house details including the Cape Cod cutout!Enter the back yard through the gate on the right. Hydrangeas aplenty surround the property, adding to the glorious views of the bay and marshes and the Keveney Lane bridge.A large stone patio, roses and sea grasses complement this stunning setting.  Words are not necessary to describe the views and serenity of this property.

A Naturalist’s Hidden World
166 Indian Trail, CummaquidParking: Please park in the field opposite the house, on the right side of the street, or in the front part of the circular drive if space allows. A parking attendant will be present for guidance.Hidden behind a trellis banked in climbing hydrangeas is a unique treasure, a garden that is the creation of a loving naturalist and artist.This garden was on the hydrangea tour last year and is brought back by popular demand. The garden plantings and specimens, including but not limited to irises, young hollies, bee balms, Japanese maples, red twig dogwoods, ginkgoes, butterfly bushes, and over 100 varieties of daylillies, are too numerous to list. Fortunately, the owner has meticulously labeled her plantings to help us navigate the setting.Scattered throughout the property are her handcrafted sculptures and benches created from cherry and cedar wood. These objects alone are worth the visit! Additional ceramic pieces from Scargo Pottery and Barnstable Pottery add color as well, as do the whimsical “flowers” found throughout the gardens.Finally, at the rear of the property, one enjoys the tranquil views of Barnstable Harbor and marvels at the sacred space created to honor the history of the area.

Brittany Loves Lucy

Brittany Loves Lucy is a homemade, one-woman spectacular. Brittany takes on every character and every line of I Love Lucy's infamous "Lucy Does a TV Commercial" episode in which Lucy finagles her way onto Ricky's television show and has too many spoonfuls of the alcohol-filled Vitameatavegamin.

With a few simple set pieces and props, the world of I Love Lucy is recreated to remind us all that comedy is timeless.

Performed by Brittany Halls.

In the Black Box Theater

2ND Wednesday Theater at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

2ND Wednesday Theater at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

2nd Wednesday Theater: a monthly play-reading of rarely-performed classics, undiscovered gems, old chestnuts, and exciting new works.

Agnes Evans is a young woman grieving for her deceased teenaged sister, Tilly. As she leaves her childhood home in Ohio, Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook containing a game scenario created by her sister, whom she realizes she never really knew very well at all. She discovers that Tilly was a renowned D&D player, who was passionate about online fantasy gaming.

In order to unlock more secrets about her mysterious young sibling, Agnes recruits a dungeon master named Chuck to help her understand and grieve for Tilly. She soon stumbles into a journey of self-discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s safe haven. Dramatic and comedic, and as full of ogres, elves and fantasy creatures as any episode of Game of Thrones, Qui Nguyen's "She Kills Monsters" is a surprisingly sweet tale of friendship, loss, and acceptance and an acknowledgement of the geek within us all.

"She Kills Monsters" is presented by Matt Kohler and the New Classics Theater Company.

Wednesday, July 10 on the Mainstage

FREE!

Books for Idle Hours: Nineteenth-Century Publishers and the Birth of the Beach Read

Books for Idle Hours: Nineteenth-Century Publishers and the Birth of the Beach Read

A prominent nineteenth-century preacher branded summer reading as “literary poison in August.” Today, though, the practice is celebrated as lists like O magazine’s “Best Summer Reads” take center stage. Based on the new book, Books for Idle Hours: Nineteenth-Century Publishing and the Rise of Summer Reading (February 2019), this talk explores the birth of the “beach read” and the practice of summer reading in the nineteenth century, tracing the ways in which readers, authors, and publishing houses came to frame summer reading not as a disreputable indulgence, but as a respectable pastime especially for the woman reader.

Donna Harrington-Lueker is a professor in the Department of English and Communications at Salve Regina University

Free to the public. Registration is appreciated! Email sturgisreference@comcast.net, call 508-362-6636, or online at http://www.sturgislibrary.org/event2/the-history-of-summer-reading/
