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.

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.
