Liberty & Justice: The Sweet to Satirical Art by Sally Mavor

  • Cotuit Center for the Arts (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

he "Liberty and Justice" exhibit is an opportunity to see a wide array of works by fiber artist and illustrator, Salley Mavor, who has recently added political satire to her list of subjects to explore. She uses small dolls as a metaphor for playing house in a controlled environment that has been taken over by outside political forces. The exhibit features a collection of photographs of scenes she created in a doll house and a stop-motion animated film, which satirize the current administration in Washington. The original dolls and props used in the film will also be on display. Although Ms. Mavor’s foray into political art is the centerpiece of the show, the exhibition also includes original embroidered children’s book illustrations and other artwork from earlier in her 40-year career. The inclusion of these pieces tracks the evolution of her artistic journey from “innocence” to tackling real world issues.

Liberty and Justice: The Sweet to Satirical Art of Salley Mavor
March 2 - April 20
Opening Reception March 2
5:00pm - 7:00pm
Artist Talk at 5:20pm

We’re also pleased to announce that on April 13th, 11am to 1pm, you can join Salley Mavor in our Mainstage Theater where she will talk about her exhibition, her journey as an artist and will take questions from the audience. Admission is free.

Donald Gauland - Artwork at Barnstable Town Hall

to Apr 18

Donald Gauland - Artwork at Barnstable Town Hall

The "Art on Loan" program displays the works of local artists on meeting room walls in Barnstable Town Hall.   Artwork by Donald Gauland is now on display in the Barnstable Town Hall, through April 18, 2019. 

 Donald Gauland is a self-taught artist and a passionate student of Eastern philosophy, who works principally in colored inks on mulberry paper and acrylic on canvas. 

Donald’s artistic journey began 1985 with watercolor collages.  A life-long interest in Eastern philosophies and his practice of T'ai Chi Ch'uan and Chi Kung, he was inspired to work in ink and paint abstract expressions. 
He paints with “chi (energy), jing (essence) and shen (spirit) to create abstract images of growth, stability, and balance.” Each original painting is signed and dated with the Chinese year and stamped with his artistic seal. 

 In addition to painting, Donald plays alto sax and percussion in the Barnstable Town Band, as well as in the Cape Cod Concert Band and Cape Community Orchestra. 
He also enjoys improvisatory Irish sessions playing bodhran and rhythm bones. 
You will find Donald on the Hyannis Village Green every Wednesday in July and August during the Barnstable Town Band concerts. Donald and his wife will be in the Hyannis HyArts Artist shanties for a stay in June and then again in September. 
His wife Janet is a percussionist in the Barnstable Town band and is an artist as well, channeling her creativity as a jewelry designer. 

 The Barnstable Town Hall exhibit is open to the public and on display now through April 18, 2019, in the Barnstable Town Hall Hearing Room and Selectmen’s Conference Room, 2nd Floor, Barnstable Town Hall, 367 Main Street, Hyannis.  There is complimentary parking in the Town Hall parking lot. Town Hall is open Monday through Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm (except State and Federal holidays) and frequently opens during evening hours for scheduled meetings.

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.

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.

Drawing People: Parts to Whole with Jackie Reeves

Learn to draw the human figure every Thursday morning with artist and Chalkboard Studio co-founder, Jackie Reeves. Each week, we will focus on different parts of the human form: hands, feet, and portrait. Beginning with drawing from handouts and plaster casts, we will develop skills in seeing shapes, perspective, line, and form in a relaxed and fun 3-hour class.

Then you'll learn glazing, brush loading, color mixing, paint lifting, and control techniques as you gradually develop your painting, allowing for adjustments along the way.

There will be ongoing individual guidance, instruction, and demonstrations in a supportive, non-intimidating, and fun atmosphere. Various papers, brushes, and equipment will be discussed together with helpful handouts to assist you on your painting journey. Beginners to advanced skill levels welcome.

You have the option to just pay a material fee and I will provide the materials*. Or maybe you have a set collecting dust somewhere because you’re just not sure where to begin. Or maybe you work in another medium but have always wanted to try oils. Whatever the case, we will spend the next 6 weeks learning how to use materials while painting simple objects from observation.  No pressure, it will be fun and you will have a better idea if it is a path you want to pursue further after taking this class. The follow up class will be called “Beyond Beginners” where you will have the opportunity to continue in a structured approach learning the building blocks of painting.

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.

Instructor: Catherine Caddigan
Day: Saturday, October 13th
Time: 9:30am – 3:30pm
Location: Cape Cod Art Center – 3480 Route 6A, Barnstable, MA 02630

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.

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.

Japan and Its Prints in the Floating World: Part 2

Japan and Its Prints in the Floating World: Part 2

Japanese print enthusiast Tom Silver explores the origin and development of Japanese prints during the Edo era (1600-1867). The first prints focused on courtesans and kabuki actors, with the genre ultimately developing into the sophisticated art form admired by the likes of Monet and van Gogh. The period encompasses many of the most familiar names in Japanese prints - including Utamaro, Hokusai, Hiroshige, and Kuniyoshi. We will look at early period prints and then focus on masterpieces by each of these artists.

There will also be an “artifacts table” with beautiful Japanese crafts and antiques from the last two centuries.

Tom Silver developed an interest in this art while searching for an unusual gift for his wife. That search sparked a love for Japanese art, history, and culture. Mr. Silver’s talks at libraries and other institutions showcase print masterpieces from the 350-year history of the Japanese print genre. Mr. Silver is a Cape Cod summer resident, and a New Jersey native with degrees from Drew University and Rutgers University.

This program is free but please register at cotuitlibrary.org/events or contact the Library.

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.
