Through the Looking Glass: Daguerreotype Masterworks from the Dawn of Photography.
This exhibition is a comprehensive survey celebrating the art of the daguerreotype - the first successful method of photography. Through the Looking Glass features important examples from America, France, England, and the Middle East. The nearly 150 plates include both cased examples and larger framed plates. All the major collecting genres of daguerreotypes - landscapes, architectural studies, occupationals, erotic stereoviews, post-mortems, and of course portraiture- are represented by superb, often surprising examples.
Jodi Colella-Jackie Reeves-Kimberly Sheerin.
The Cahoon Museum invites three women artists working in mixed-media and fiber, painting, and ceramic to collaborate on and exhibition with the theme of family photographs and the topic of women and memory.
Contemporary mixed-media artist, Jodi Colella, stitches together past and present in her current series, Unidentified Woman. Colella scours flea markets for tintypes and then alters the images of unknown people from the past by embroidering on the fragile surfaces of the photographs.
Cape Cod artist, Jackie Reeves, presents selections from her current body of work which consists of paintings created from mining generations of inherited family albums and Super 8 films. She both pays homage to the past and reinvents moments once captured with the camera.
Kim Sheerin is a Falmouth-based potter who work is influenced by the natural world of Cape Cod and by Islamic and East Indian art. Her work addresses global issues affecting women, and her series "pots with a purpose" treats the subject of human trafficking.
Time: 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm.
