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.

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.

Serious Fun

Cotuit Center for the Arts, 4404 Falmouth Rd., Cotuit, MA 02635


Juried by Salley Mavor
“Creating art is serious business, but it can be fun, too,” says Salley Mavor, the juror for the exhibit. Entries for the show are pieces with a playful aspect, either through subject matter or materials and techniques. The artwork can be fun to make or fun to look at and anything from humorous to heartfelt.
