The Mannequin Project Diptych


June 12, 2019 to July 12, 2019

Attleboro Arts Museum National Juried Exhibition

OPPOSITES

Mannequins are inanimate objects with an uncanny sense of aliveness. As substitutes for human beings, they become icons of art. To reflect my sensibilities and understanding of the history of photography, I reprocess film and analogue darkroom techniques with black and white digital inversions.

Printmakers of Cape Cod: Floating Worlds

The Art Complex Museum, 189 Alden Street, Duxbury, MA 02332

While the theme Floating Worlds brings to mind the woodblock prints of the Ukiyo-e artists of 19th century Japan, such as Hiroshige, the concept is a universal one. Floating Worlds comprises water, air, emotion or other elements of nature or the imagination.

A Photographer’s View: Crossing Divergent Paths

Cape Cod Museum of Art, 60 Hope Lane, Dennis, MA 02638

An exhibition of imagery from four artists who use individual frames of reference to record aspects of the human condition. Mark Chester, Mary Doering, Barbara Ford Doyle and Frank Winters share this common starting point, while each approach their subjects with distinctive aesthetics and interests.

In my series Storyteller, I provide an imaginary experience for the viewer who is invited to complete the story.

A Photographer’s View: Crossing Divergent Paths

Cape Cod Museum of Art, 60 Hope Lane, Dennis, MA 02638

Four photographers' points of view: Mary Doering, Barbara Ford Doyle, Mark Chester, Frank Winters

Street portraits and backstories from the series: I Siciliani

Before school, I would drink un cappuccino at a popular pasticceria, Brasilrecca. I could see Mount Etna in the distance and watch mothers taking kids to the bus stop, workers on scooters going to work, crews cleaning the street, a truck delivering wood to restaurants and a couple walking their dog. This image of Mario is one of my favorite street portraits—a gruff Sicilian with a cigar… and a fluffy dog.

Monotype: The Painterly Print

Joyce Zavorskas Workshop

Cotuit Center for the Arts
Three-day workshop: Friday – Sunday, 10 – 2pm

Monotypes are paintings on smooth acrylic plates transferred to paper once only. Artists ranging from Edgar Degas, Pablo Picasso, Ross Moffett, and more recently Joan Snyder and Michael Mazur have used the monotype medium to express a more spontaneous and evocative range of drawing, painting, and printmaking.

Students create painterly spontaneous images on acrylic plates using small rubber brayers, brushes, Oil Bars, or stencils, and oil base etching ink. Dampened 100% rag paper placed on top of the inked plate, and passed through the press with gentle pressure, results in a unique impression that is intimately and permanently bonded with the fibers of the paper. Overprinting and contemporary experimental approaches with larger rollers produce magical surprises. The glistening layers of radiant ink create truly unique images with depth, mystery, memory, and delight. Demonstrations each day will help to develop individual explorations. Beginner to advanced students are welcome.

Photo Inkjet Transfer Workshop with Barbara Ford Doyle

Cotuit Center for the Arts

Hello everyone,
I want to tell you about a workshop I have coming up at Cotuit Center for the Arts this spring:
Photo Inkjet Transfer Printmaking Workshop
Sat-Sun, 10am-4pm, May 4-5

Some of you have seen demonstrations or participated in various workshops I’ve given over the last few years. Others have asked when I’d be giving another transfer workshop. Well…here it is! This one will be limited to 8 participants. You will be sending me photos before the class meets on May 4th. *I need time to edit and print your photos on special transfer film. As soon as you register, we can begin working together via e-mail.

Participants in this two-day workshop will learn how photographic transfers can be applied to various substrates—perfect for beginners who are curious about alternative photographic processes or experienced artists who want to combine photo transfers in their work. Students will transfer digital images to a variety of mediums including papers, Yupo paper, oxidized aluminum, and wood panels.


*I am able to work with students on special project requests and will offer suggestions for finishing and presenting work providing an updated list of resources. You can read more about my work on my BLOG page: www.bfdoyle.com/blog …scroll to Photo Inkjet Transfers: Concord Art Association to see the variety of transfers this group produced. And visit the site of the digital collaborative ArtSynergies: www.artsynergies.com.

If you’d like to learn more or to register, contact Christine Ernst, Director of Education, Grants, Outreach CCftA: email: christine@cotuitcenterforthearts.org Tel. office: 508.428.0669 ext 201

We the People

Cape Cod Museum of Art, 60 Hope Lane, Dennis, MA 02664

Juried by Lauren P. Della Monica
We the People…are three powerful and widely recognizable words introducing the Preamble of the United States Constitution. This juried competition asks artists to respond to current political culture in light of the goals of the country's founders and guiding principles.

Opening Reception: April 12, 2019 from 5:30 – 7:00pm

Artist Statement:
My images combine text from the Constitution and U.S. flag graphics; colors that historically symbolize: (red for) hardiness and valor, (blue for) vigilance, perseverance, justice and (white for) purity, innocence. Gold exemplifies grandeur, wealth and posterity and is used on epaulets of military generals and references gold star members of the armed forces who have died. How does all this relate today? Red and blue are symbolic of the two predominant parties in our political structure. It is a complex world of muddled beliefs, desires, and truths. Much is at stake for a future defined by biases, fear, money and power.

March for our lives


March 8, 2019 to May 5, 2019

Members’ Open: RESIST

Provincetown Art Association and Museum

Artist’s Statement: Inspired by the protests of teen survivors of the shooting in Parkland, Florida, March for Our Lives (MFOL) took place on March 24, 2018. The demonstration drew thousands of protesters to Washington, D.C., and to rallies in cities across the United States and around the world. Organizers at the Hyannis Village Green called on politicians to enact strict gun-control legislation. High school juniors and seniors—A New Generation of Voters—will be 18 by the 2020 presidential election. WE THE PEOPLE can make a change to support common-sense gun reform.

Olive


January 12, 2019 to February 23, 2019

Winter Art Exhibit: Bon Appetit

Arts Foundation of Cape Cod at Cotuit Center for the Arts

Where did Olives come from? Olive is a picture book with general information about the cultivation of olive trees, the harvesting and pressing of olives to produce oil, and the role olive oil plays in eating a healthy Mediterranean diet.
I took photographs of olive trees on several trips to Italy. L’Olivo di S.Emiliano, is registered as a protected tree near the town of Trevi. It is thought to be the oldest olive tree in Umbria and is fenced to allow tourists to visit it while protecting it from any damages.

Digital Transfer Encaustics Workshop with Joyce Zavorskas

The Art Complex Museum

Digital transfer to birch panels is a four-step process but can be done in one action-packed day. The instructor will bring students’ imagery printed out on transfer film to the class at the Art Complex. All materials including beeswax are provided but if students have an old electric frying pan, or crockpot, or heat gun, and hog bristle brushes for oil painting, bring them to the class. Students must email their digital image to the instructor two weeks before. The finished birch transfer panels have a luminous satin surface protecting the image and are ready to hang on the wall. The info from this class can be used to continue the process at home on their own.
Students prepare an image for transfer at home on their own computers and email it to the instructor two weeks before the class. The image can be a photo of a person or place, or a photo of an original artwork, etc. The image must be 8.12” x 8.12”, slightly larger than the 8x8x1” birch panels. The instructor will print out their images on 8.5”x11” DASS Classic Transfer Film at her home, and bring to class in Duxbury to be transferred by the students.
