“ Cape Cod Artists’ Views of Land and Sea” with  Deborah Forman

 Wednesdays 2-4pm   October 23-November 20  at Wellfleet Preservation Hall

Cape Cod has been attracting artists to this grand land and its spectacular seas for more than a century. Many artists have created work that interprets their experiences of this place. The course will cover the 50 artists Deborah Forman included in her book, Contemporary Cape Cod Artists: Images of Land and Sea (Schiffer Publishing, 2013). Their range of work, from traditional to more edgy creations, displays a rich diversity of styles inspired by the Cape’s legendary beauty. The course will include presentations by several of the artists included in the book.

Deborah graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia with a degree in journalism, and also studied art at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and at the Philadelphia Museum School of Art. She was the features editor of the Cape Cod Times and editor in chief of Cape Cod VIEW magazine before she began writing Perspectives on the Provincetown Art Colony (Schiffer Publishing 2011), a history of the art colony, based on interviews with dozens of artists and writers. She wrote the script and helped film Art In Its Soul, an award-winning documentary of the history of the Provincetown art colony, which was aired on public television stations nationwide.

Open University of Wellfleet

Open University of Wellfleet is a forum for learning more about Wellfleet's cultural history.  Conceived by retired Brown University professor Rhoda Flaxman, the Open University began in April 2013 with five four-week courses.  All courses have a Wellfleet or Outer Cape connection, with an emphasis on our local history and culture.

These courses are envisioned as directed discussions, otherwise known as collaborative learning. Readings will be assigned, and instructors will offer mini-lectures to spur focused interchanges and facilitate learning. The Spring 2014 Classes will be held once a week for two hours from April 1st through May 8th at Wellfleet Preservation Hall, Wellfleet Library or W.H.A.T. Consult course descriptions above for date, time, and place. Courses will run with a minimum of ten and a maximum of seventeen participants.
