This show is a juried exhibition of art work by art teachers from all over Cape Cod and the Islands, featuring pottery, paintings, printmaking, pastels and more. Many of these artist/teachers also exhibit professionally in galleries across the Cape.

A great turn out for the opening.

technical-difficulties

I missed getting a new post out over the weekend. First time since the New Year began that I didn’t get 2 blogs per week out there.

Originally I had hoped to put up something about the opening reception at Cape Cod Museum of Art for “Teaching Art/Creating Art”. I attended on Thursday evening and took a number of pictures to feature here.

Unfortunately, they are still imprisoned in a borrowed camera for which I have no compatible cable (I have 3 but none that fit this particular camera). I have no card reader and no computer at home or work that is advanced enough to slip the card directly into. Nor does my Blackberry do it.

canon_ixus_55_digital_cameraSo on top of the fact that I spent all weekend doing demolition work on a condominium, I am still waiting for my dear husband to have a chance to get my pictures through one of his office computers. He is involved in the condo renovation too, so he’s got a lot more than these pictures on his plate at this time in truth.

So I am instead going to offer links to two blogs I read regularly and like. I am literally stealing this idea off the post I got today from Tina Mamoser’s The Cycling Artist weblog. Sorry (or thanks?) Tina. Desperate times call for desperate measures and all that.

The Cycling Artist is basically the blog of a landscape artist who lives in the UK. She is very techno savvy -far moreso than I- and shares great information about her work, materials, techniques, business practices and travels. As a landscapist myself, I really like her work and this blog. You’ll find her at http://tina-m.blogspot.com

A second blog I just came across at the beginning of the year is Hai -br0w Kulture. Julia lives in NYC and she blogs often about museums and other institutions/entities in that area. Next best thing to being able to be there yourself as she takes you through the ins and outs of the intersection between the arts, culture and tecnology. She’s another “artsy type” who is more techno-savvy than I can claim to be. The link is http://www.juliaxguila.com

I will be posting about the opening at CCMA as soon as I can retrieve those blasted pictures. In the meantime, I hope you will check out these blogs and let me know what you think along with any others you recommend.

Good art won’t match your sofa.

Arrrghhh!!!!

If I hear about the Starving Artist’s “Art” sale once more I’ll blow a gasket. I thought they were all over as of last weekend. Sofa-sized paintings as low as $19.00 and NO admission fee. Cool! You don’t have to pay to go look at ,and buy crap, that you shouldn’t take for free anyway.

Fortunately here on Cape Cod we are blessed with an antidote: an abundance of quality local art and what I really wanted to mention in this post are 2 shows currently on exhibit to which I am connected.

Opening tomorrow and running through February 22nd at the Cape Cod Museum of Art is “Teaching Art/Creating Art”, a juried show of work by members of the Cape Cod & Islands Art Educators Association. Two of my paintings were selected for this exhibit and the reception for the show is Thursday,

January 22nd from 5:30 to 7:30 PM.

Also running until January 18th at Provincetown Art Association and Museum is a student exhibition called “Art on the Edge”. This is the culmination of 12 Saturdays of work from a free middle school art program. Several of my current students at Harwich Middle School participated and their work is now on display at PAAM. There will be a pot-luck reception on Friday, January 16, 2009 from 6-8 PM to which all are welcome.

On Tuesday of this week, we had mounted our annual Gr.8 field trip to PAAM as part of my curriculum of study on the history of the art colony. This year’s trip was especially important as the entire class got to see the work of two of their peers on display along with all of the other shows currently running.

My next post will feature some scenes from the trip and a little information about the program of study I designed and implemented.
