    Opening Reception: Sunday, May 19, 1:30—3:30

    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.

    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.

    Hello everyone,

    I wanted 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.

    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 asa 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.

    Barbara Ford Doyle: The Mannequin Project

    Mannequins are inanimate objects with an uncanny sense of aliveness. Making mannequins more (or less) human-like, leaves us with feelings of ambiguity. 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 two digital systems:

    Multiple exposure: From different points of view, layers of information are superimposed as one single image. Prints may be linked along a line of symmetry or cut into strips and rejoined as collages.

    3-D anaglyph: Two color stereo views are filtered so that only one of the two images can be seen by each eye, in that way creating a 3D effect.

    Artists statement:

    One Sunday, while on vacation in the Abaco Islands, I heard music pouring from the windows of a turquoise painted building. ALL ARE WELCOME was stenciled on the stone doorstep. It appeared not by accident that I was drawn into the fellowship of this Haitian church. My photographs are neither formal studio shots, nor are they casual street portraits—although my “studio” was in the shade of a building across from the church. That’s how Church Ladies started. It’s an on-going series.

    By making a respectful connection with my subjects—even if a “sitting” is no more than five minutes—I try to capture the essence of the individual. I ask them to make eye contact with the camera, and for a few shots, not to smile.  My best photographs reflect an honest interaction between my subjects and me, resulting in a narrative portrait of beauty, dignity, and a sense of faith.

    Opening Reception: April 5, 5:30-7:00pm

    There were over 720 pieces of art submitted from over 30 states across the country. Of the 720 submissions reviewed, the juror selected 56 works from 56 artists in 18 states. Go to my Blog to read Mark Adams Juror's Statement. Here is my interpretation of the theme:

    WARNING STRONG CURRENTS: The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese… Donald J. Trump Nov. 6, 2012.

    WARNING STRONG CURRENTS: This winter two “bomb cyclones” battered the East Coast causing unprecedented high tides flooding coastal towns. Fish were reported swimming down Commercial Street in Provincetown. More frequent and powerful storms continue to erode Cape Cod’s barrier beaches.

    WARNING STRONG CURRENTS: President Trump withdraws the U.S from the Paris climate accord stating, I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.

    Beaury: Art in Dialogue with Nature

    An invitation from Annie Dean, Director of Programs and Exhibitions: For this exhibition, the jury is seeking works that highlight the artists' interpretation of the natural beauty of Cape Cod—the land, sea and skyscapes, as well as the world beneath the sea. Selection of work is based on how prints "speak" to one another visually and thematically to create a viewer experience that encapsulates a sense of beauty.

    This juried exhibition of New England artists features artwork across diverse media that's open to different interpretations.

    Although the definition of "body politic" is an organized group of citizens, artists in the show have used this term as inspiration: work that addresses the body, politics or the intersection of the two. In these tumultuous times, many artists address contemporary culture and controversial issues regarding private space and the control of one's body.

    The gallery hopes the exhibition will provoke, illuminate and challenge!

    Juror’s Statement

    In his book The Practice of the Wild, poet and essayist Gary Snyder points out that “wild” is most often defined by what it is not. So, it is undomesticated, untamed, uninhabited, uncultivated, uncivilized. What if, he writes, we instead define it by what it is? Through this lens, “wild” becomes: self-propagating, flourishing, pristine, exuberant, original, self-reliant, ecstatic, free. Seen in this more positive light, nature has agency and power – a sense of dynamism that reminds us to take note, to honor the wild places we’re still lucky enough to have.

    The images selected for this exhibition are poetic, evocative, and deeply interpretive. They masterfully capture some of the spirit of their subjects, rather than simply telling us what things look like. This attention to mood and emotion brings the scenes alive and inspires us to care. I hope the exhibit serves as an invitation to celebrate the wild beauty of trees and to contemplate what we stand to lose in the relentless drive for environmental dominion. As Edward Abbey so poignantly reminds us, “Love of wilderness is…an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only paradise we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need, if only we had the eyes to see.”

    46 Cape Cod Artists: Cotuit Center for the Arts

    Interpretation of the theme. 

    Manufacturers design camping trailers with many of the amenities of home—refrigerators, flushing toilets, TVs, air conditioning. Some even come equipped with solar panels.  The RV lifestyle is made up of outdoor enthusiasts and of those interested in traveling and camping rather than living in one location. Many retirees “snowbird” to Florida in the winter and return North in spring.

    The owners of this camper have established more permanent roots—Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home….

    "Home! Sweet Home!" (also known as "Home, Sweet Home") is a song adapted from American actor and dramatist John Howard Payne’s 1823 opera Clari, or the Maid of Milan; the song's melody was composed by Sir Henry Bishop with lyrics by Payne.

    A Sense of Place

    PhotoPlace Gallery, 3 Park Street, Middlebury, VT 05753

    Room 307

    Juror’s Statement:

    Photographs that convey a “sense of place” blend the physical characteristics of a scene, landscape or object with the mysterious essence that emerges from gradually and perhaps unconsciously inhabiting a place over time. The photograph ceases to become an objective document. Instead, it takes on a particular feeling that is invested with something that is often intangible, revealing a deeper understanding of what lies beneath the surface.

    How is this “sense of place” communicated in a photograph? Many components including light, content and composition are important, as are clarity and craftsmanship. A well made photograph, for me, is the visual equivalent of a poem, evoking feelings and emotions. A quote from an essay in The Atlantic by Mark Yakich, “What Is a Poem,” states… “A poem helps the mind play with its well-trod patterns of thought, and can even help reroute those patterns by making us see the familiar anew.”

    Subjectivity, of course, is inevitable. Selecting photographs is necessarily contingent of the particular jurors taste and aesthetic. That said, it was a privilege and honor to jury “A Sense of Place.”

    I Siciliani: Roberto

    Juror Dean Brierly, editor of Black & White magazine, has selected 35 images for exhibition in the gallery and another 40 images for exhibition online.

    In my capacity as editor of Black & White magazine, I am constantly judging images, not only for publication in our regular issues, but also for our Portfolio and Single Image Contest issues. One thing I’ve noticed over time is the tendency (unconscious or not) on the part of many photographers to follow visual templates laid down by others. Happily, this was not the case when I sat down to consider the photographs submitted for this exhibition. I was, in fact, greatly impressed with the originality and quality on display.

    From the beginning of my involvement with photography, both as practitioner and editor, I have been drawn to the work of those who go against the status quo, who avidly experiment with the medium, who pioneer their own creative themes and visual parameters. People like Barbara Crane, Mario Giacomelli, James Fee, to name but three. When I look at a photograph in any context—as a judge or simply as a viewer in a gallery—what I look for above all is something that takes me by surprise, that puts me off balance, even upsets me. The cardinal sin in my book is to be boring. This holds true when I look at other types of artwork, listen to music or watch films. It’s always harder to do the unexpected, but invariably it’s more rewarding and meaningful.

    I was delighted at how often I found myself surprised while judging these images. It was obvious that a great deal of thought went into their creation, as well as originality, sensitivity and craftsmanship. It’s one thing for a photograph to attract attention, another thing entirely to hold it. The majority of these images, while striking on first glance, also resonated with emotional and thematic depth that revealed additional nuances with repeated views. All of which made it an honor and a pleasure to have been chosen to play a curatorial role with work of such quality.

The chance to find apps that "reflect my particular artistic sensibilities and understanding of the history of photography" enables the journey from snapshot to highly expressive personal imagery. —George Slade

    Juror’s Statement: Traer Scott

    I often say that animals make me human. I am eternally captivated and inspired by the beauty, honesty and intelligence found in all corners of the animal kingdom. Unfortunately, as we humans become a bigger, louder and more pervasive animal, many other species are suffering in countless ways. However even as our planet and the animals that inhabit it are perhaps at the peak of crisis, I also believe that as a society, we are at an apex of collective consciousness and compassion.

    I was heartened to see so many submissions examining and exploring the relationships we have with animals, celebrating their amazing adaptations and abilities as well as in some cases, their pure and visceral “animal-ness”. My selections for Animalia are images that evoke curiosity, sadness, discomfort, wonder, humor and awe, all of which are emotions that I regularly feel when contemplating the beauty and fragility of the animals that we share our planet with.

    The Arts Foundation of Cape Cod will host its 9th Annual Member Winter Art Exhibit January/February 2016 at the Cotuit Center for the Arts. The 2016 exhibit is titled Balancing Act, and will feature 54 artists’ interpretations of that theme – literally and figuratively. All Cape Cod established and emerging artists submit art for consideration and are selected by jury. The exhibit will open with an invitation-only reception on January 9, 2016 at 7 p.m.

    Balancing Act: Interpretation of the theme.

    Chesterwood is the former Stockbridge, MA summer home, studio, and gardens of sculptor Daniel Chester French (1850-1931). It is also the venue for large-scale abstract, conceptual and figurative sculpture in an outdoor setting. Last summer twenty-four artists from The Boston Sculptors Group exhibited their work in the landscape French designed himself. As I strolled through the woods, stopping at each marked location, I noted the imaginative concepts tying (sometimes literally) sculpture to nature and the wide range of materials used including copper Lincoln pennies (a nod to French’s Abraham Lincoln for the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.).

    It was, however, this composition captured on my iPhone of growing and decaying tree trunks, sunlight and shadow, abstract and figurative forms— balanced in nature—that might have been listed “#25 on the walking map.”
