Hyannis HyArts Shanty dates:  August 19-25

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

Danza: www.jenb.org/clothing
A Harwich native working as a designer and printmaker she attended the Massachusetts College of Art & Design in Boston studying graphic design. Her studies not only spawned an interest for the graphic arts, but also for photography, printmaking and book binding. After returning to the Cape five years ago she began linocut printing. 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.

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

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.

2ND Wednesday Theater at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

2ND Wednesday Theater at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

2nd Wednesday Theater: a monthly play-reading of rarely-performed classics, undiscovered gems, old chestnuts, and exciting new works.

An enhanced reading of the cult classic The Bad Seed is set to scare CCftA audiences on October 16. Before The Bad Seed was a Hollywood hit, it was a Broadway play, and before it was a play, it was a novel. The reading, directed by Jo Brisbane, will also draw comparisons between these three major versions of The Bad Seed, which has been described as “a chilling study of evil…totally mesmeric." Fans of the play will enjoy the camp of its melodrama and dark humor. Brisbane also promises a special prize for the best Rhoda Penmark look-alike costume, and a special Best Penmanship Award.

The Bad Seedis a play “dramatized” by Maxwell Anderson (in 1955), and is based on The Bad Seed, a book written by William March (in 1954). Screenwriter John Lee Mahin wrote the movie adaptation, which was directed by Mervyn LeRoy for Warner Brothers Pictures (in 1956).

2ND Wednesday Theater at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

2ND Wednesday Theater at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

2nd Wednesday Theater: a monthly play-reading of rarely-performed classics, undiscovered gems, old chestnuts, and exciting new works.

Agnes Evans is a young woman grieving for her deceased teenaged sister, Tilly. As she leaves her childhood home in Ohio, Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook containing a game scenario created by her sister, whom she realizes she never really knew very well at all. She discovers that Tilly was a renowned D&D player, who was passionate about online fantasy gaming.

In order to unlock more secrets about her mysterious young sibling, Agnes recruits a dungeon master named Chuck to help her understand and grieve for Tilly. She soon stumbles into a journey of self-discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s safe haven. Dramatic and comedic, and as full of ogres, elves and fantasy creatures as any episode of Game of Thrones, Qui Nguyen's "She Kills Monsters" is a surprisingly sweet tale of friendship, loss, and acceptance and an acknowledgement of the geek within us all.

"She Kills Monsters" is presented by Matt Kohler and the New Classics Theater Company.

Books for Idle Hours: Nineteenth-Century Publishers and the Birth of the Beach Read

Books for Idle Hours: Nineteenth-Century Publishers and the Birth of the Beach Read

A prominent nineteenth-century preacher branded summer reading as “literary poison in August.” Today, though, the practice is celebrated as lists like O magazine’s “Best Summer Reads” take center stage. Based on the new book, Books for Idle Hours: Nineteenth-Century Publishing and the Rise of Summer Reading (February 2019), this talk explores the birth of the “beach read” and the practice of summer reading in the nineteenth century, tracing the ways in which readers, authors, and publishing houses came to frame summer reading not as a disreputable indulgence, but as a respectable pastime especially for the woman reader.

Donna Harrington-Lueker is a professor in the Department of English and Communications at Salve Regina University

Free to the public. Registration is appreciated! Email sturgisreference@comcast.net, call 508-362-6636, or online at http://www.sturgislibrary.org/event2/the-history-of-summer-reading/

Sturgis Library is hosting a very special weekend of programs celebrating the 50th anniversary of the writing of Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

We are inviting some special readers to participate, including members of the Vonnegut family, friends of colleagues of Kurt Vonnegut, Vonnegut scholars, and others. But the main purpose of the event is to invite the community to be a part of this exciting marathon and celebration.

Queer Visual Representations & the Male Gaze with Bruce Childs

Popular culture has in recent decades represented gay and lesbian lifestyle on television, in movies, and in print media. “Queer visual representations” will survey the phenomenon of the male gaze in art of the western world. Paintings, graphics, and photography precede modern narratives and interpretations of queer American culture, often neglected and misunderstood by those looking in from outside the Queer Perspective. This art history lecture is presented in conjunction with Mr. Childs’ display in the library's gallery space.
