Terra Incognita: Exploring New Terrain - Reception

Terra Incognita: Exploring New Terrain - Reception

"Terra Incognita: Exploring New Terrain is a record of my personal journey as an artist as I step out of my comfort zone by dramatically altering the scale of my work. Working intuitively, I moved deep into new terrain where mystery and unpredictability dictate where the process will lead.

This exhibition of large-scale mixed media digital prints is the result of a pilgrimage into the unknown territory of my creative life. While reflecting on my early influences, overcoming fear, and celebrating new discoveries, my emphasis was on process, inner reflection and spontaneity.

Each digital print begins by choosing images from an extensive collection of my scanned original drawings, paintings, monoprints, and photographs. These elements are then layered over one another. Blending modes are used paying careful attention to hues, form and composition. Hard edges, line and color fields combine in surprising ways. Transparent multilayers echo fainter versions of shapes and textures. The finish work may be altered with pastel, paint, colored pencils or inks. By keeping the process fluid, I enjoy a cross-pollination of the various disciplines."

Black and White: Launch Point - Reception

5:00 PM17:00

Black and White: Launch Point - Reception

What do we think about when we hear the words Black and White? For years, contemporary artists have explored both the literal and figurative ideas expressed in the term “black and white."
We propose a contextual exhibition exploring the various ideas of black and white related to our lives and living spaces. We envision a gallery that looks and feels like you are walking in to an artist’s studio, or a collector's home. We hope to create a space that uses artisan created furniture, utilitarian objects, art objects, and lighting to set a stage that highlights each artist’s reference to the idea of Black and White.

We have a carefully curated group of artists representing both 2 dimensional and fine craft media. Sarah Caruso, ceramicist, Andreas Kuehn, photographer, Neil Grant, sculptor, Arthur Levi Rainville, photographer, Jacqueline Reeves, painter, Matthew Bielen, painter, Seth Rainville, ceramicist, Yukimi Matsumoto, glass blower, Barbara Willis, fiber artist, Catherine Pritchett, fiber artist, and Kenneth Wadoski, fine furniture maker, Steve Swain, metalsmith, who will create the “bones” of the space. This eclectic group of artists come from culturally diverse artistic and educational backgrounds and each brings to the space their approach to the concept of “black and white."

Wine and Music Wednesday at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

Wine and Music Wednesday is an open house held in our Gallery on the third Wednesday of every month from 6:00pm to 7:30pm, with wine tasting and live music. 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 featuring Gary Girouard.

Gary Girouard is a self-proclaimed piano ‘troubadour’ – spinning intimate confessions and emotional stories through evocative solo piano melodies. Girouard’s expressive style of contemporary piano combines equal parts classical (think Chopin), and new age (George Winston) into “a masterpiece, a testament to a fluid live recording” (Boston Live), and “a must-have for your solo piano collection” (SoloPiano.com). Girouard’s Naked Piano series is heard by over 3.4 million Pandora listeners and has garnered critical and popular acclaim including multiple “Album of the Year” awards and nominations.

Artwork Submissions for Winter Art 2020: Heroes and Villains at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

From the wilds of nature, classic tales, popular tunes, and computer-generated creations, Heroes and Villains abound!

Heroes and villains come in many different forms: From comic book characters to a favorite teacher to Mother Nature, heroes can inspire us to be better and do better. Likewise, villains from Darth Vader to world dictators to ocean polluters, show us what we can become when we give in to our darker selves.

We’d like you to show our young audience your interpretation of heroes and villains through your artwork.

Interactive Fun for Kids

Keeping younger arts patrons in mind, artwork for the show will be displayed at a height of 4 feet throughout the exhibit – right at children’s eye level and some of the artists themselves will drop in to discuss their works with the students as they tour the exhibit. The visit to Heroes and Villains is accompanied by a hands-on workshop in the Art Studio, where students will create their own piece inspired by the exhibition.

LOCATION: Cotuit Center for the Arts, 4404 Falmouth Rd, Cotuit, MA, 02635

KEY DATES:

11 Nov 2019 deadline for submission

Gretchen Romey-Tanzer - Opening Reception

November 8 – December 22

Winter Art Exhibition Opening Reception:
Friday, November 8, 4:30pm – 6:00pm

Weaver Gretchen Romey-Tanzer uses the double layer technique, intricate design, and brilliantly colored cotton fiber to create works that appear to collect light, cast shadow and sparkle with prismatic ebullience. Her mastery is in her ability to create the appearance of visual depth, and to provide the illusion of three dimensions, through contrasting and analogous color placement.  Notable for the complexity of its strong graphic shapes and abstract alignment of patterns, City Planning, her most recent work, was inspired by hours spent in Chicago traffic. It took the artist nearly four years to execute, as it evolved from preliminary sketches, drawings, and paintings through to the completed woven artwork. Additional selections from her current projects, influenced by road maps and traffic patterns, will be among the works on view.

Romey-Tanzer has been weaving for over 35 years and is a 2019 recipient of the prestigious Artist Fellowship Award in Crafts from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. She has received numerous awards, including the top exhibitors prize in both Baltimore and Crafts at the Castle, Boston, and her work is in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.  She weaves and teaches out of her studio in Brewster, MA.

Soo Sunny Park: Boundary Conditions - Reception

The artist Soo Sunny Park is known for creating monumental, immersive installations that transform their environments into realms of moving light, reflection, and shadow. In Boundary Conditions, she weaves together a metal grid with iridescent Plexiglas that transmits, reflects, and refracts daylight to create an otherworldly installation. Changing light conditions reveal different facets of the sculpture, so that during different times of day it shifts from translucent and clear to colorful and prismatic.

Look This Way - Women Artists - Reception

Jodi Colella | Jackie Reeves | Kimberly Sheerin
September 6 – October 30

Fall Art Exhibitions Opening Reception:
Friday, September 13, 4:30 – 6:00pm

The Cahoon Museum invites three women artists working in mixed-media and fiber, painting, and ceramic to collaborate on and exhibition with the theme of family photographs and the topic of women and memory.

Contemporary mixed-media artist, Jodi Colella, stitches together past and present in her current series, Unidentified Woman. Colella scours flea markets for tintypes and then alters the images of unknown people from the past by embroidering on the fragile surfaces of the photographs.

Cape Cod Chalkboard Studios artist, Jackie Reeves, presents selections from her current body of work which consists of paintings created from mining generations of inherited family albums and Super 8 films. She both pays homage to the past and reinvents moments once captured with the camera.

Kim Sheerin is a Falmouth-based potter who uses techniques of slip trailing, stamping, and sgraffito. She is influenced by the natural world of Cape Cod and by Islamic and East Indian art. Her work addresses global issues affecting women, and her series “pots with a purpose” treats the subject of human trafficking.

Artist Gallery Talk with Jodi Colella

Artist Gallery Talk with Jodi Colella

Meet fiber artist Jodi Colella whose work is on view in the Look This Way show. Jodi is fascinated by early photography and collects antique tintype portraits which she manipulates to create evocative artworks with dark humor and surrealist imagery. Her new series, Ghost Stories, is inspired by the uneasy postures and expressions evident in daguerreotype portraits, whose subjects were required to sit without moving for many minutes before their image could be captured. For Colella, these minutes also expose a sliver of the soul that she contemplates and then seeks to reveal and investigate.

Jodi will explain how she utilizes traditional needle arts paired with provocative materials to create both intimate and monumental sculptures that engage the viewer while eliciting the simultaneous reactions of whimsy and threat. She’ll bring samples of the materials she uses to create these enlarged tintypes and explain her innovative technique. This  new work on view was  inspired by the Museum’s current daguerreotype exhibition.

Jodi Colella works out of her studio in Somerville, MA, and exhibits and teaches internationally. She is a member of the Boston Sculptors Gallery and a recipient of a 2019 Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellowship Award for Sculpture.

Join us at the Museum to hear Jodi’s talk, then see the new exhibitions and stay to enjoy opening reception!

Watercolor for Scaredy Cats III (Advanced Beginners)

This class was designed for students who have completed my two beginner level classes but if you are a relatively new watercolorist with a handle (even a shaky handle) on basic skills such as color mixing, composition and brush skills, this class is for you.

We will be working on reinforcing the skills we’ve learned so far and add some new skills to help make your paintings look even better.

Working with a limited palette will allow us to perfect our color mixing and we will experiment with using our brushes in new and exciting ways.

All our painting will done from life, no photos. We will also learn more about creating a great composition.

Please bring the following materials to the first class—if you already have paints, brushes and a palette, just bring what you have to the first class and we will discuss them at that time.

Materials we will be using (ask for a student discount if you buy locally)

  • Cotman watercolors, small tubes

    • Cadmium red, medium

    • Alizarin crimson

    • Ultramarine blue

    • Prussian blue

    • Raw sienna

    • Lemon yellow

  • Brushes—I recommend 3 rounds, #6, #12 and a really big one! Wait on the latter until you come to class for a recommendation at a reasonable price.

  • Paper—A 9x12” pad of Canson watercolor paper—it should have a blue cover.

  • A container for water

  • A small white ceramic plate (not plastic) for a palette

  • Paper towels

Joan Hall: Hear the Ocean Sobbing

Joan Hall: Hear the Ocean Sobbing

A long time sailor, Joan Hall uses her paper based works to initiate a conversation about ocean advocacy concerning primarily plastic pollution. She is drawn to the tension between control and surrender. Her sculptural works use rich textures and vibrant colors to crate constructions that are reminiscent of undulating currents, algae bloom, and coral reefs creating a vast ocean of meaning symbolism and emotion and ultimately our relationship to the sea. If we listen to the ocean we can hear it sobbing beckoning us to take action.

About the Artist

Hall Received her BFA at the Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio and her MFA at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Adero Willard: Alleviating Quiet

Adero Willard: Alleviating Quiet

"Alleviating Quiet is a visual challenge to stillness. The intricacies of contrasting pattern and color on these large coil-built vessels present a visual clamor; voices as juxtaposing shapes on clay. My continual pursuit to develop ornate and complex surfaces on the clay form works alongside an inclination to express identity through an abstract language of pattern and color, receding and advancing. Decoration is created using resists, layers of applied color, and etched surfaces. Ornamentation becomes foundation."

Adero Willard lives as an artist and educator in Western Massachusetts. She received a BFA at Alfred University in 1995 and MFA at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 2006. Nationally and internationally, Adero has exhibited work in solo and group galleries, craft shows, and pottery invitationals. Her work has been featured in a number of publications and books on ceramics. Her interest in surface decoration is lifelong and is fueled by a passion for gardening and cooking and a love of textile design, painting, collage.

Through the Looking Glass Exhibit - Reception

DAGUERREOTYPE MASTERWORKS FROM THE DAWN OF PHOTOGRAPHY

September 6 – October 30
Opening Reception: September 13 | 4:30 – 6:00pm

This exhibition is a comprehensive survey celebrating the art of the daguerreotype- the first successful method of photography. Through the Looking Glass features important examples from America, France, England, and the Middle East. The nearly 150 plates include both cased examples and larger framed plates. All the major collecting genres of daguerreotypes -landscapes, architectural studies, occupationals, erotic stereoviews, post-mortems, and of course portraiture- are represented by superb, often surprising examples.

The daguerreotype was the first successful method of photography. It is a unique positive image that lives in a highly polished silver-coated copper plate. Its invention was announced to an electrified audience in Paris on August 19, 1839, at a joint meeting of the Académie des Sciences and the Académie des Beaux- Arts. A joint forum was the appropriate venue, as Louis Daguerre’s invention would prove equally revolutionary in science and technology, in social history, and in the arts.

Also at the meeting was the “American Leonardo” Samuel Morse, the painter, who was being honored for his invention of the telegraph. While in Paris, Morse learned daguerreotypy from Daguerre himself; back in New York, Morse then taught the art to interested colleagues in both the arts and sciences who would go on to open portrait studios of their own. While “daguerreotypomania” swept both France and America, it was in America that it had its greatest social (and commercial) impact, as portraiture of the common man captured the essence of Jacksonian democracy. The daguerreotype was the dominant mode of photography in France in the 1840s, but in America the daguerreian era would last through the 1850s. By the time of the Civil War it had been supplanted by the ambrotype, the tintype, and especially the albumen print from a collodion-on-glass negative, which would prevail till the turn of the century.

The show is organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions, LLC All works are from the collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg.

 Art History with Marilyn: The Renaissance and The Baroque

Art History with Marilyn: The Renaissance and The Baroque

After our previous year’s study of ancient and medieval art, we have finally arrived at a period of art well known to many, a favorite of sorts. We hope to enhance everyone’s previous knowledge of the Renaissance and Baroque periods with a brief introduction, starting with the works of Giotto and the Lorenzetti, in Assisi, Siena, and Padova.

Our course will mainly concentrate on the Renaissance in Italy, particularly in Tuscany and Venice, but we shall also explore the interactions of the art and commercial worlds of Italy with those of Flanders, Holland, and parts of Germany. Architecture and sculpture will be a part of the course, but mainly we shall explore and revisit the works of Piero della Francesca, Leonardo, Raffaello, Michelangelo, as well as the Gentileschi, Mantegna, Tintoretto and Tiziano. In the Baroque period we shall study the powerful and sometimes startling works of Caravaggio from Rome, Naples, Sicily and Malta. Finally, no course from this period could fail to offer an extensive look at the works of Gianlorenzo Bernini. His gifts to Rome, in particular, we’ve all seen many times – think only of St. Peter’s Square and the papal tombs and altar canopy within the basilica.

Even if you haven’t taken the previous courses, you are more than welcome to join us this fall. Handouts from previous semesters will be available so that you may have the background information and technical terms.

Creative Digital Photography-Intermediate Level

Creative Digital Photography-Intermediate Level

Making compelling photographs requires the successful combination of two skills: the ability to see a photographic opportunity and the understanding of how to use various photographic tools to capture what was seen in the mind’s eye. This course will deal with both the creative process and the technical skill necessary to make successful photographic images. Students will learn how to use exposure, focus and composition for creative control and to create photographic impact.

This is an intermediate level photography course and students should own and know how to operate an adjustable digital camera (no cell phone cameras please). Students will be asked to participate in three photographic assignments, each of which will be presented and critiqued in class. Student participation in all assignments and classroom discussions will be an essential and important component of the learning experience of this course.
