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

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.

Bett McCarthy: Bettsdesginworks.com
Creating art had always been part of her life as a casual hobby.

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

Joe Diggs: A Tribute to Joe’s Twin Villa

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.

Artist Bio:

BFA from the University Of Hartford. MFA from Anna Maria College. I have over 30 years of experience teaching studio art and art history at all grade levels. In my own work, my preferred media is oil paint, oil pastel, and a combination of watercolor with colored pencil. I strive to capture images that touch the viewer in a personal way. In my seascapes and landscapes I attempt to go beyond pure representation and paint not only the place, but communicate the feeling of being in that space. I try to capture the elusive space between representation and the emotions felt from the experience or memory of a place.

Wine and Music Wednesday at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

Wine and Music Wednesday is an open house held in our Gallery, with wine tasting and live music. Please note that June's Wine & Music will be held on June 12 (not on the third Weds of the month as usual).

The first event was held in March of 2010 and it has become a very popular event at the Center. It’s the perfect way to end your day, start your evening or just join friends for a night out looking at terrific art. Join us for a splendid selection of wines and entertainment!

Award winning singer/songwriter/guitarist Kim Moberg was born in Juneau, Alaska, the daughter of a classical pianist mother of Alaskan Native Tlingit descent and a US Coast Guard veteran father from Kansas. Music was the constant in Kim's childhood, helping her to adjust to the frequent moves associated with growing up in a military family. Kim taught herself to strum and finger pick to her favorite songs by singer/songwriters of the 1970’s, but debilitating stage fright kept her from pursuing her own dream of becoming a professional performer.

In 2014 Kim set out to overcome her stage fright and wrote her first song. Kim's debut CD entitled "Above Ground”, celebrates the achievement of her goal to bring her music out of the basement. “Above Ground”, produced by Grammy nominated producer Jon Evans, was released worldwide in September 2017. Her 2nd cd Up Around The Bend” is scheduled for release this September.

Kim's passionate and heartfelt vocals mesmerize listeners while her compositions tug at feelings of melancholy, heartbreak, healing and social consciousness. www.kimmobergmusic.com

Heather Sherburne Swanson is a member of The Cape Violin Cello Duo;a member of The Suzuki Association of the Americas; an instructor and board member at The Acadia School of Traditional Music and Arts and teaches at her Private Studio in Centerville . She is a composer, accompanist and improvisational fiddler/violist who studied music at Boston University and UMass Lowell. Her training includes several genres from classical to folk and she favors Traditional Celtic style fiddling.

Constructing a Memory: a Workshop with Joe Fusaro
Jun

1:00 PM13:00

Constructing a Memory: a Workshop with Joe Fusaro

Construct a memory with collage and mixed-media artist Joe Fusaro, currently showing in our Gallery. Participants in this workshop are asked to bring three or more personal photos (or photocopies of photos) to use in a collage. By manipulating the photographs and drawing or painting into them, we will create a unique work of art that reconstructs a part of our past or family history.

Materials to bring: 
Photographs or photocopies of three or more personal photographs

  • watercolor paints

  • brushes

  • pencils and colored pencils

  • scissors and/or X-acto blades

  • heavy paper (11x14 Bristol is best)

  • optional: markers, acrylic paint

Joe Fusaro creates drawing, painting, collage and mixed-media works inspired by the language of the human figure- examining simple gestures in order to create surprising and simultaneously familiar images.

Fusaro’s paintings begin with initial drawings that transcribe a variety of gestures and get built through layers of marks and calligraphic lines. Mixed-media works, including collages, explore Fusaro’s own photographs, chance imagery and the compression of space in order to initiate new stories and trigger past memories.

Joe Fusaro is the Senior Education Advisor for Art21 in New York, Visual Arts Department Chair for the Nyack Public Schools, and an adjunct professor for New York University’s Department of Art and Art Professions.

Location: Art Studio Price: $75 / $64 members

Color Grading and Shaping Light in Photoshop: Learn my Processing Secrets w/ Betty Wiley

In this class students will use a variety of techniques for color grading and adding/shaping light in Photoshop. Students will learn how to work with color and light in Photoshop using levels, curves, brushes, various adjustment layers, color fills, blend modes, and more. These techniques will allow you to add color casts and/or enhance color to images to make sunsets and sunrises really “pop” as well as apply various color looks that are very popular on social media these days. I will show you how to use different filters and adjustment layers. These techniques are a great way to enhance images and build Photoshop skills in the process. I’m looking forward to sharing my processing secrets with you and how I work with color and light and Photoshop to achieve various effects. You will be amazed at all the techniques and tools you will learn in this class. I will supply images for the class exercises on a thumb drive for students to use.

Please note this is not an “intro to Photoshop” class and that students will need to have some basic Photoshop knowledge as a prerequisite for taking this class. Students will need to know how to navigate the program, open files and understand layers and have familiarity with basic tools however proficiency is not required. In addition students will need to have basic computer skills and have a laptop that’s in good working condition as this is a hands-on class and students are encouraged to bring their own laptops.

This course is for the rank beginner as well as the advanced student. You will receive the basics in drawing with sighting skills, perspective and shading and composition, but you will also have the opportunity to explore different media…even with brush and ink as a drawing tool. There is an aesthetic to Drawing that is worthy to explore and will also enhance your own Art Appreciation.

There is no limitation on the media you use. Even collage. The choice is yours. We will explore a wide range of approaches to drawing. “There is No One Way to Draw”

We will also explore a wide range of subjects from still life, to landscape and the human figure.

You will also learn how to draw from observation as well as using photo references.

DRAWING IS THE PERSONAL AND MOST DIRECT PATHWAY TO EXPRESSION. My job as an instructor is to introduce this multi-faceted approach to drawing that actually frees you up so you can dis­cover that you really can draw.

Creating a Custom Watermark or Logo in Photoshop w/ Betty Wiley


In this class students will learn how to create their own unique watermark or logo in Photoshop. While there are companies that will create a watermark logo for you, the problem is that they all look very similar so this is an opportunity for students to learn how to create their own and save some money in the process. We will create a number of different water marks that can be used in a number of different ways and I will show you some creative ideas to make your watermark even more unique. Students will learn how to work with the text as well as how to shape and work text to create artistic and creative looks. Once the watermarks are created I will show you how they can be applied to your images in Photoshop as well as in lightroom. In addition I will also show you how to create and add your own signature if desired.
Design skills are not necessary for this class however students should possess basic skills in Photoshop such as knowing how to open files, navigate the program, have some familiarity with the tools and know how to create layers. In addition students should possess basic computer skills and have a laptop that is in good working condition that they can bring to class as this is a hands-on workshop.
With water marks that they can use on their own images and skills that they can use to further create additional watermarks on their own. Students will need to have a fairly recent version of Photoshop installed on their laptops, such as Photoshop 2016 or higher.
I’ve been asked to teach this many times so if you have been wanting to learn how to design and create your own signature look with a unique watermark that is different from the rest,, now is your chance! Hope you can join me for this fun class!
