2020 AT-HOME EDITION To Benefit the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod


Welcome!

We are so grateful that you have chosen to join us for the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod’s (AFCC) first-ever all-virtual art auctions. At a time when our region’s art scene has been devastated by the pandemic, your support is needed now more than ever. Both the Silent Online Auction and the Live Virtual Auction, streaming from the Chatham Bars Inn, will raise critical funds to support the Cape’s creative economy on the road to recovery. To get the most out of these events, we encourage you to register as soon as possible. These auctions are a great opportunity not only to take home one-of-a-kind pieces that reflect the creative talent that abounds in our region, but also to give back to artists who have lost income and to museums, theaters, and art venues that have had to temporarily shut their doors and lay off or furlough employees out of necessity. As we look ahead, we want to make sure that the arts don’t just survive for some, but that they thrive for all of us. Thank you for standing with us to support the arts. We urge you to bid high and bid often to win amazing artwork from some of Cape Cod’s finest artists.

Auction Details The AFCC Live Virtual Art Auction will feature the stunning 2020 Pops by the Sea commemorative artwork, “A Symphony,” by Provincetown painter Cynthia Packard. We’ll also be auctioning off new pieces by several past Pops by the Sea artists. This special event will be hosted by Melyora de Koning of Phillips auction house, in real time, at the beautiful Chatham Bars Inn. It is important to register early to bid! Our auctions take place through Bidsquare, an online auction platform. As a registered Bidsquare bidder, you can participate remotely and be a part of the action via the internet. You can also submit an absentee bid ahead of time, or make arrangements to be a phone bidder. Please click here to request absentee or phone bidding arrangements. Should you have any questions or need any help with Bidsquare or absentee bidding, please contact us at info@artsfoundation.org. The AFCC Silent Online Art Auction starts on Thursday, July 23, at noon ET, and ends on Sunday, August 9 (the same day as Pops by the Sea At-Home Edition!), when one artwork will close every minute beginning at 9:30 p.m. ET. We’ll have more than 30 pieces by some of the Cape’s premiere artists. If there’s a piece you really want to bring home, we recommend you bookmark our auction website (https://www. bidsquare.com/auction-house/arts-foundation-of-cape-cod) and check in often.

AMY DARE MIDDLETON Mimmsy's Garden (Acrylic on canvas, 40" x 30")

Influenced by expressionist and impressionist painters, I'm mainly concerned with capturing mood through color, form, and brush strokes. I've long been inspired by the landscape of my beloved Cape Cod. I'm drawn to its magical light, expansive skies, and ever-changing seas. The bright colors and floral patterns of the seventies and eighties have influenced my work, as well. I studied art at Southern Methodist University, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Advertising and Studio Art. I continued my studies at Montserrat College of Art, Massachusetts College of Art, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. AmyDareMiddleton.com

SARAH HOLL Horse (Mixed media on plaster, 45.5" x 31.5")

ANN GUILIANI Antique Cup (Monotype & mixed media adhered to canvas, 13" x 10")

Sarah Holl is an innovative mixed media painter and sculptor who has numerous works displayed in public spaces around the Cape and is currently based in Dennis. Her major influence was as an apprentice with artists such as Sam Feinstein, Cynthia Packard, and her father, Harry Holl. She shares her passion for the arts as a mentor for numerous interns of the Cape Cod Museum of Art and also by teaching at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in South Yarmouth.

I am constantly creating images in my mind. Walking the beaches or seeing something on the side of the road can be a source of inspiration. To capture the immediacy of the moment calls for a spontaneous approach that relies on gesturaI work and lets the process and materials guide me toward each finished piece. So that, significantly, each piece seems to be an independent entity with a personality of its own.

Kenneth Hawkey is an artist known for his paintings that represent a strong sense of place. Through his association with many galleries, arts organizations, museums, cultural councils, and libraries over the past 30 years, he has been an exhibitor, curator, teacher, speaker, panelist, and juror, honing his own expression and career while also supporting other artists.

(Sculptural House. Mixed media and fiber sculpture, 12" x 4" x 4".) I choose to work with fiber for its versatility. Fabric can be layered, stitched, painted, and reassembled into a threedimensional object. I work intuitively, letting color and texture guide the process. Layering many different materials and techniques creates depth and dimension in my final pieces. JackiedeRuyter.com

(Acrylic, wax pastel, graphite on gallery wrapped canvas, 20" x 20" x 1.5") I have been making art my whole life. But it wasn’t until I retired from my teaching career that I was able to immerse myself into discovering and developing my own true style as an abstract expressionist painter.

JO HAY Notorious RBG

(Limited Edition Print, Number 5 of 100. 16" x 20" with 2" white paper border all around. Signed, unframed, archival ink on archival paper print) Jo Hay is a contemporary British American portrait painter and currently lives and works in Provincetown. “Persisters” is an ongoing series of large-scale portrait paintings depicting trailblazing women in their pursuit of justice at this current time in history. These courageous and dynamic women have become larger than life and symbols of hope for many other women from all walks of life. I make large-scale, direct-gaze portraits to reflect the shocking potential these women appear to possess. The act of making these portraits has been both cathartic and empowering while also becoming a record of this watershed moment in time. JoHay.org

Evening Light - the Split (Popponessett, Mashpee) (Oil on canvas, 10" x 20") MARGARET FAIR NOWAK

My work ranges from intimate interiors to still life, florals, and landscapes. I enjoy experimenting with the figure, and more recently I have embraced abstract painting. The challenge of the mark making, interpreting, building up of layers, and then the breaking down, is what brings space, light, and texture to my paintings. I use a variety of tools on different substrates, and although my painting career started with oils, I now also paint with acrylics and mixed media. I enjoy plein air but spend most of my time working in my studio. MargaretFairNowak.com LOT 13

PETER BATCHELDER Marsh Grass (Oil on Canvas, 24" x 24")

From an artist’s perspective, I’m interested in the nature of architecture, how it sits within the landscape, color, and light. From a personal perspective, I find myself often curious about the story of the building: who built it and why; the many people who have lived or worked in the building; how the landscape may have changed around the structure over the course of years. I find that the curiosity I have about the building intertwines with the creative process in my interpretation of the architecture and the landscape in one image. PeterBatchelder.com

LAURENCE YOUNG Next Generation (Oil on canvas, 16"x 16") Next Generation is part of a body of work inspired by my trips to Cuba. At the time, the relationship between the United States and Cuba was opening up. The painting Next Generation represented the hope and promise for the Cuban people and Cuba. Since the theme of this show was "Facing Forward," I felt this was an appropriate piece. LaurenceYoung.com

JOSEPH DIGGS Soul of the Woods (Oil on Canvas, 24" x 20") My work has always assisted me with life on Micah’s Pond, a beautiful property once owned by my grandfather, then my father, now me. I concentrate on painting and finding the exact color and the exact shape to say what I’m trying to say. I allow myself to act as a medium and concentrate on the images that come through on the canvas. This piece, Soul of the Woods, represents the light and spaces between the trees. These shapes represent the presence of past and future souls. JoeDiggsArt.com

By choosing mostly formal solutions, Palladino investigates the dynamics of landscape and figures, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what each means to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is often fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination. LisaPalladino7.com

PHILIP PARISEAU Sea Tangle

(Glass, 13" x 13", artwork includes an easy to install hanging device that securely hangs the piece 1" out from the wall for impact) Glass is a medium which gives an artist endless creative opportunities. I've always been captivated by how one can use this fragile yet unforgiving material to achieve virtually any form and produce great detail or soft abstraction. Its flexibility as a medium is matched only by the difficulty it presents when executing precise work. These creations begin with careful planning, selection of colors, and pattern design. I use sheet glass, powders, and rods which are manipulated into the shapes and patterns that you see in these unique pieces. ArtsBarnstable.com/Pariseau

2019 Pops by the Sea Commemorative Artist

Valued at $2,600

Born and raised in New England, Whitney has spent her life exploring and painting its diverse landscape, most especially its coastline. She received her BS in Fine Arts from Skidmore College. “Living near New England’s wonderfully diverse coast, I strive to create paintings that reflect those stunning colors that pop up quickly, as well as the emotions that they inspire. In my studio, I am able to paint large and expressively with oils while experimenting with the emotional impact of light, color, and application of paint.”

I begin each sculpture by welding a thin skeleton of carbon steel. I overlay this with a hand-stitched fiber substrate. Many layers of sprayed or hand-applied paper pulp, often interspersed with organic materials, imbue each piece with a life of its own. The fascinating chemistry of paper forges the elements together without the use of foreign chemicals or glue. When I want to use color on one of my pieces, I apply pure powdered pigments with a dry brush, or use watercolor or encaustic. My studio is in Sandwich. Cape Cello is one of three pieces created for the 2019 Pops by the Sea concert. *Also in the LIVE auction. *Cape Cello is a wall hanging.

RACHEL PAOLINO Blue Anglerfish (Hand-cut, rolled,

shaped and welded steel, Harley Fat Bob motorcycle tank, LED lighting, enamel, automotive clear coat. 23" H x 28" W x 13" D, dimensions vary.) I am inspired by objects in which aesthetic is more a byproduct of functionality than it is the primary attribute. Vintage European sports cars, World War II aircraft, and the American muscle car culture of the 1950s and 1960s are some of the industrial achievements from which I draw ideas. I gain a gratifying sense of power by manipulating metal through welding, plasma cutting, and hammering. I’m fascinated by marine life—particularly sharks, deep-sea anglerfish, and squid. I enjoy creating works that pay tribute to the beauty of nature and the triumphs of another time. WeldingCreations.net

When she lived in England, Susan O'Brien McLean painted cricket matches, English country gardens, and picnics by quiet streams. Now that she lives in Osterville on Cape Cod, her subjects are children playing by the sea, Cape Cod gardens, and landscapes depicting the beauty of the Cape. But no matter what side of the Atlantic she's worked on, her vision is touched by nostalgia for a gracious lifestyle that is rare in this century.

TIGHE HANSON Soft Landing (Acrylic on panel, 20" x 20") My paintings are non-representational, with representational elements. There is a contrast between the systematized squares and the looseness of the painting, between abstraction and realism. Most of them involve an underlying grid in which I use source photos and transfer them to the painting. Sometimes each square is painted separately; sometimes the entire painting is done in one shot. The images are chosen intuitively, mostly for their visual qualities, not for symbolic or narrative value. However, if the painting is successful, the images will work with each other in a kind of reverie/narrative. Tighe lives on Cape Cod. TigheHanson.com

PETE HOCKING Edge Bright (Oil on Panel, 10" x 10")

The subtle contradictions that exist within a painting are what interest me most and sustain me in my practice. Although rooted in an abstract tradition, my work makes clear references to the natural world. I spend as much time as I am able near the water: listening, watching the light, collecting. It is my intention that the images depicted, while not recognizable per se, be believable and exist logically within the environment of the painting. I emphasize the pure physicality of my materials while also exploring their alchemistic possibilities.

Pete Hocking is a visual artist & writer. In addition to being represented by Four Eleven Gallery in Provincetown, he’s recently shown at the Chazan Gallery in Providence, RI; the Dorado Project in Jersey City, NJ; the Plough Gallery in Tifton, GA; and at VeeVee in Boston, MA.

CLEBER STECEI Old Cranberry Bog (Oil on Canvas, 10" x 8")

2016 Pops by the Sea Commemorative Artist Born in Brazil in 1976, Cleber Stecei began experimenting with abstract painting as a teenager. After arriving in the United States at the age of 19, he became inspired by the beautiful New England scenery and has since excelled in landscape painting. Cleber has a great appreciation for realistic portrayals of the human form, as well as the spontaneous brush work of a plein air painting, and he carefully tries to combine those qualities in his work. Stecei’s work is done both from photographic references and on location (en plein air), allowing him to respond to the effects of natural light and atmosphere. Stecei is a member of the Cape Cod Art Association, and his work has been awarded numerous times, including a Best in Show. Since showing at the Addison Art Gallery, his work has enthralled collectors as well as judges and has been featured in respected regional and national art publications. AddisonGallery.com

DIANNA BRAGINTON-SMITH AND HEATHER BRAGINTON-SMITH POPS by the SEA (11" x 17", oil on wood panel) This painting began as a piece by Heather Braginton-Smith, the 1989 Pops by the Sea commemorative artist. Heather died tragically in an automobile accident on Route 6 in March of 1997 at the age of 37. Her sister, artist Dianna Braginton-Smith, took the unfinished oil painting made by Heather years ago and completed it - incorporating elements of her sister's commemorative artwork for the 1989 Pops into this piece. “I hope whoever

gets this can feel the love and the gratitude I had for being able to paint with my sister again,” Dianna said. “Heather loved creating art more than anything.

JOYCE UTTING SCHUTTER Equus Hexifolia Spring (18" x 21" x 5", flax, steel, thread, dry pigments)

Autumn (26" x 18" x 5", flax, steel, leaves, dry pigments

These pieces, inspired by horses, are to be sold as a pair.

2019 Pops by the Sea Commemorative Artist I begin each sculpture by welding a thin skeleton of carbon steel. I overlay this with a hand-stitched fiber substrate. Many layers of sprayed or hand applied paper pulp, often interspersed with organic materials, imbue each piece with a life of its own. The fascinating chemistry of paper forges the elements together without the use of foreign chemicals or glue. When I want to use color on one of my pieces, I apply pure powdered pigments with a dry brush, or use watercolor or encaustic.

NOTE: the darker, "Autumn" horse also can be placed horizontally, as if running.

I am a native New Englander, born in Boston and raised in Guilford, Connecticut. I spent two decades in the Midwest, working as an artist, teaching, and raising a family. I studied papermaking under Timothy Barrett (2009 MacArthur Fellow) at the University of Iowa, where I earned an MFA in Sculpture (’97). I taught drawing, sculpture, painting, ceramics, and graphic design at Iowa Central Community College. My sculpture experience ranges from cast iron, bronze, and clay to welded steel, fiber, and paper. My unique method of sculpting with sprayed paper pulp is described in Volume 13, No. 2 of Hand Papermaking and in The Papermaker’s Companion by Helen Heibert. My work has been exhibited nationally. My studio is in Sandwich, Massachusetts. ArtbyJus.com
