The Art Gallery of the Guild of Harwich Artists, as part of the upcoming ArtWeek festival happening April 27 – May 6, presents a Meet the Artist demonstration featuring master collage artist, Doris Mee on Saturday, May 5 from 2:00 – 4:00 PM. Mee demonstrates how to create paintings composed of “found” papers, and invites attendees to try their hand at using magazine papers, newsprint, tissue and printed papers to create landscapes, still life’s and even portraits.
Hundreds of ArtWeek events will be presented across the Commonwealth during the 10-day creative festival. ArtWeek is an award-winning innovative festival featuring hundreds of unique and creative experiences that are hands-on, interactive or offer behind-the-scenes access to arts, culture, and the creative process. Now an annual statewide festival, ArtWeek was born in Boston in 2013 and recently expanded its footprint across the Commonwealth.
Presented by Highland Street Foundation and produced by the Boch Center, ArtWeek offers new ways to experience art, culture, and creativity. This year, Mass Cultural Council and the Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism have joined ArtWeek as Lead Champions in this unique opportunity to shine a spotlight on the state’s creative economy.
“We are thrilled to have organizations like The Guild of Harwich Artists participating in ArtWeek this season,” said Josiah A. Spaulding, Jr., President & CEO of the Boch Center. “ArtWeek is an innovative festival that works to spotlight how the creative economy is thriving in Massachusetts. We are very excited about this season’s offerings, which include many unique experiences spanning dance, fashion, media arts, spoken-word, poetry, writing, culinary, visual arts, music, opera, theater, design, film, and more. And the best part is that many of the events are free making it affordable and accessible to everyone!”
