Black and White: Launch Point - Reception

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."

Gretchen Romey-Tanzer - Opening Reception

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.

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.

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

Joan Hall works in mixed media and large-scale sculptural installations with an emphasis on the materials of paper, glass and metal. Hall Received her BFA at the Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio and her MFA at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She studied papermaking with Garner Tullis at the Institute of Experimental Papermaking and Printmaking in San Francisco. She is known for her innovative approaches to material and process. Hall’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at the Brooklyn Museum of Art (NY), Leopold-Hoesch Museum Germany), Newport Art Museum, (RI), St. Louis Art Museum (MO), Museum of Nebraska Art (Kearney, NE), Silkeborg Art Center (Denmark), The Blue Star Contemporary Art Center (San Antonio, TX), George Mason University (Fairfax, VA), Joslyn Art Museum (Omaha, NE), Hillwood Art Museum, (Brookville, NY), Walton Art Center, (Fayetteville, AR), Budapest Museum of Fine Arts (Hungary), Nordjyllands Museum of Art(Aalborg, Denmark), Suwa Municipal Museum (Japan), Municipal Museum ( Nanjing, China), Musée d’ Art (Lyon, France), and the Rijswijk Museum and Apeldoorn Museums (The Netherlands) and the Meadows Museum, (Shreveport, LA).

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.

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.

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.

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.
