I was down the Cape yesterday on a day off and stopped at the Cape Cod Art Association on Route 6A in Barnstable to see an interesting new exhibit called "Points of View." It features photographs taken by members of the Cape Cod Camera Club, which is affiliated with the art association, and the interpretation of those photos by the association's painter members.
What a great show! And it was made even better when I recognized the names of a couple of RAW regulars: Nancy Bray, who was a RAW Featured Photographer, and Ken Dorman.
In fact, one of Nancy's photos, "Apple Pie," was part of the group chosen Best Group in Show. Her photo was interpreted by Carol McGurin, who painted a watercolor titled "Table Talk", and Jean M. Matson, who did an oil rendering called "Still Life." This grouping was a good example of how some of the painters interpreted the photos: Nancy's picture was a still life that included an empty pie tin, measuring spoons, an apple, eggs, spices, etc. And one of the painters turned that into a fully baked pie!
The photographers with works in the show were:
Roseann Sullivan Carroll
David E. Jordan
John L. Morse
Carolyn Weston Patkowski
If you're on the Cape over Memorial Day weekend, be sure to stop in to see the show, which is on display until June 14. The association is at 3480 Route 6A in Barnstable, and is open seven days a week, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. You can find directions here.
