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.

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.

Maybe you are not sure about drawing or feel that you can’t draw a straight line. Or maybe you are interested in learning a completely new way to approach drawing or maybe you are stuck in the quagmire of depending on one media and afraid to use your drawing skills with a different media.

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!

ANOTHER EXCITING NEW ART SHOW OPENING AT COTUIT CENTER FOR THE ARTS

ANOTHER EXCITING NEW ART SHOW OPENING AT COTUIT CENTER FOR THE ARTS

ANOTHER OPENING – ANOTHER EXCITING NEW ART SHOW AT COTUIT CENTER FOR THE ARTS!

 DON’T MISS A SPECIAL RECEPTION AND ARTIST TALK ON MAY 11TH  FOR A NEW EXHIBIT FEATURING THREE WONDERFUL ARTISTS.

 What:  Opening Night Reception

When:  May 11, 2019   5-7pm  (Artist Talk at 5:20pm)

Admission:  Free  

Snacks served with a wine tasting

Other beverages available for purchase

 The works of these artists will be on display:

 Percy Fortini-Wright:  Street Art

The title of this exhibition is somewhat of a paradox. This body of work is realistically spray-painted street scenes on canvas, the art being the street itself.  Thus the title “Street Art.” Fortini-Wright is particularly drawn to night scenes with their distinct lights, wet streets, and cars dashing by that many can relate to. Fortini-Wright, a night owl who loves to drive, finds these scenes not only familiar but also a time of reflection. His aim is to put you, the viewer, in the driver seat as an observer.

Joe Fusaro:  Bite Your Tongue

In this exhibit, Joe Fusaro presents collage and mixed-media works that utilize human gestures and original photographs to place viewers in the midst of something recognizable and simultaneously fleeting.  Fusaro tears and cuts into his photographs and handmade paper in order to present images we feel we recognize but can't quite place... all the while biting our tongues to find the right words or simply keeping the memory to ourselves.

 

Erik Durant:  Myths and Narratives

Durant’s personal work is a quest to understand the human condition. As a sculptor his main interests lie in gesture, movement, and pose. His works are at times Illustrative, but always realist, exploring historical, and contemporary narratives—both known, and unknown. While many of the characters that he chooses to sculpt seem to be rooted in the past, they are his own imaginings of things not fully understood. Issues surrounding beauty, the body, and identity, give rise to a version of contemporary mythology that is new, yet seemingly familiar.

Exhibits Run May 11- June 9, 2019

Carl Lopes: Artist Talk and Demonstration at Creative Hands Gallery

Creative Hands Gallery is celebrating ArtWeek with Cape Cod Artist, Carl Lopes. We’re very pleased to have Carl in the gallery on May 4, 2019, at 11:00 to 1:00 to demonstrate and discuss his artwork. Carl is very well know for his paintings which are airbrushed acrylics, holographic papers, glass beads, and jewelry attached to wood panels and coated with high gloss poly-resin. The paintings appear as if they are stained glass, and lit from behind. The intentional stunning appearances leave viewers amazed and intrigued.

Carl’s paintings are a respectful nod to centuries of influential African design and tradition. Colors, patterns and compositions pay tribute to ancestral heritages and cultures, yet maintain a direct contemporary vibe. Masks, portraits, birds, and fish are embellished with geometric motifs and designs that visually pop. www.CarlLopes.com

ArtWeek, produced by Boch Center, is a unique annual celebration of arts, culture and creativity. Curious people of all ages will get creative at 500+ unique events across the state - and many are FREE! ArtWeek runs from April 26 - May 5. Visit http://www.artweekma.org/ or https://www.facebook.com/ArtweekMA for additional events celebrating ArtWeek throughout the Commonwealth.

What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful than the garment with which it is clothed?”

 - Michelangelo 

The nude figure is a traditional Western Art, and has been used to express ideals of male and female beauty and other human qualities.

This exhibition will feature over 30 new works from resident and guest artists celebrating the human form. The show will include nude paintings in a wide range of styles and approaches - Realism, Surrealism, Abstraction and Impressionism.

Come join us as we explore the true beauty of the human body. 

Opening Reception: Saturday, April 6, 4-7pm. Show runs through Wednesday, May 1. This event is being held at our original location; 5 Main Street, Cotuit Ma.

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.

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.
