Democracy:  From Beginning to End
Sep

6:00 PM18:00

Democracy: From Beginning to End

Three Mondays: September 23rd & 30th, & October 7

Democracy: From Beginning to End is a three-part presentation that examines the theoretical and practical foundations of Democracy in history. The discussion addresses the elements of Democracy and compares it as a political system to other options. Three 90-minute lectures, given by Michael Darring, provide an overview of Democracy’s emergence and foundations; of the era of the founding of American democracy; and of Democracy’s status in the modern world and beyond. 

Michael Darring resides in Cotuit with his wife, Kate, and their two hounds, Winston and White Cloud. Michael earned a BA in Philosophy from the University of Tennessee and recently retired from an arduous career in the oilfields of the Gulf of Mexico; in between, he travelled and read widely and frequently. In the middle of 2018, after reading a book on the founding of the New England colonies, he became interested in the subject of democracy. These lectures are the result of his research since that time.

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

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).

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

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."

State of the Waters with Association to Preserve Cape Cod

Cape Cod is connected by water. The groundwater we depend on for drinking water also fills our nearly 1,000 freshwater ponds, part of an extensive water network, many of these ponds drain to over 40 freshwater rivers and streams that discharge to 53 estuaries along 559 miles of coastline bordering the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Cod Bay, Nantucket Sound and Buzzards Bay.So, how healthy are our waters?

What do we know about the quality of the Cape’s waters and what don’t we know? With funding from the Massachusetts Environmental Trust, the Association to Preserve Cape Cod set out to answer these questions by gathering and evaluating existing water quality data and then making this information available to the public. APCC’s executive director, Andrew Gottlieb will share the findings and explain “STATE OF THE WATERS: Cape Cod.”

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.

On November 13, the Cotuit Center for the Arts presents a staged reading of Susan Lumenello’s new comedy The Sherlock Problem.

Arthur Conan Doyle has a problem: the great detective Sherlock Holmes, the world’s most famous, most beloved character.

At first, Arthur brims with excitement over Sherlock’s arrival. The young doctor and would-be author hopes his brainchild will bring him recognition and rescue him from a dull, unprofitable medical practice. That’s exactly what Sherlock does.

But as they do in any relationship, things change. The Sherlock stories prove wildly successful, beyond even Arthur’s expectations. So famous does Sherlock become that he outshines his creator, and the demand for more stories grows and grows. Arthur comes to hate Sherlock. And so, with pen in hand, he does something about it.

Author Susan Lumenello says of The Sherlock Problem, “The Sherlock canon has been well tried for a reason – Holmes is a fascinating character. But the fraught and complicated relationship between Arthur Conan Doyle and his signature creation has never been fully explored.”

Directed by Sue Lindholm.

Susan Lumenello’s one-act play Buzz was performed at the Boston Theater Marathon; her one-act The Annoying Minstrels was performed at the Cotuit Center for the Arts; her full-length comedy Easy to Love was given a staged reading at the Provincetown Theatre; and Dreamsville, a full-length, had a staged reading at the Barnstable Comedy Club in August 2019.

Salon of Shorts, December 2019

Cotuit Center for the Arts offers an open mic series called Salon of Shorts in the Art Studio on the third Wednesday of March, June, September, and December. Award-winning poets, playwrights, and spoken word performers Christine Rathbun Ernst and Gregory Hischak host the series, which encompasses all types of performances: poetry, storytelling, essay reading, music, performance art, improv, and stand-up.

“Everyone has in them five minutes of good storytelling, song, stand-up—even genius,” said Ernst.

“This is the perfect venue to try something new,” said Ernst, “to try out new material, and to find a new audience.”

Teaming with Ernst is Gregory Hischak, who has been hosting an open mic at O’Shea’s in West Yarmouth until recently.

“I have wanted to do an open mic on the mid-Cape for a long time,” said Ernst, “and, when Greg became available after the O’Shea’s open mic ended, I was eager to involve him in this new project. I am a big fan of his work and we have a complimentary performance style.”

Both Ernst and Hischak will perform at Salon of Shorts, which has already attracted considerable interest from local poets and musicians.

Gregory Hischak’s book, “Parts & Labour,” was published in 2012. It contains poetry, a play, and an interview the author. His poetry has been published in “Bellingham Revue,” “Green Mountain Review,” “Mid-America Poetry Review,” “Third Coast,” and other journals. He has toured and performed with spoken word troupes and has written several plays which had been performed by regional theaters across the country. His play, “Center of Gravity” was the 2010 winner of the Clauder Prize for New England Playwrights and was a 2011 finalist with the Massachusetts Cultural Council for playwriting, in addition to other awards.

Christine Rathbun Ernst’s recent shows include “The Fat Ass Cancer Bitch” and “The Fat Ass Cancer Bitch Goes Shopping,” which she has performed to sold-out audiences across the Cape. She will present her third show in the series at CCftA this summer. She describes her work as “the funny unapologetic, wickedly honest, poignant, hell-bent, pissed-off one breasted, loudmouth story of one woman’s examined life witty quirky unforgettable theatre of self-discovery, good story-telling, and pointed social commentary.” She has performed one-woman shows and at open mics throughout New England and is a two-time Mass Cultural Council Artist Grant finalist.

Each performer is limited to five minutes, including set-up.

Admission to Salon of Shorts is free.

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!

Sci-Fi Book Club

The Cotuit Library Sci-Fi Book Club is meeting once again for some stellar book discussing. This month we will be reading a true delight from the late Sir Terry Pratchett: The Wee Free Men. Copies will be available for checkout at the Library and in ebook form on the Libby app leading up to the event.

“Armed only with a frying pan and her common sense, Tiffany Aching, a young witch-to-be, is all that stands between the monsters of Fairyland and the warm, green Chalk country that is her home. Forced into Fairyland to seek her kidnapped brother, Tiffany allies herself with the Chalk's local Nac Mac Feegle - aka the Wee Free Men - a clan of sheep-stealing, sword-wielding, six-inch-high blue men who are as fierce as they are funny. Together they battle through an eerie and ever-shifting landscape, fighting brutal flying fairies, dream-spinning dromes, and grimhounds - black dogs with eyes of fire and teeth of razors - before ultimately confronting the Queen of the Elves, absolute ruler of a world in which reality intertwines with nightmare. And in the final showdown, Tiffany must face her cruel power alone...

“In a riveting narrative that is equal parts suspense and humor, Carnegie Medalist Terry Pratchett returns to his internationally popular Discworld with a breathtaking tale certain to leave fans, new and old, enthralled.”
