MashpeeTV Art Gallery
Did you know the MashpeeTV studio also serves as an art gallery featuring works by local artists?
Artwork by the Mashpee Senior Painters is on display at the MashpeeTV Art Gallery through the end of December. The featured artists are a group of seniors from Mashpee, Falmouth and Osterville, who meet at the Mashpee Senior Center on Wednesdays to paint in the medium and subject of their choice. Barry Jones-Henry functions as the instructor and coach. Student levels range from beginners and intermediates to accomplished painters. Some members of the group participate year round, while others are only available in summer, and others are occasional drop-ins. The group began in 2008 in the former Carol H. Jacobson Senior Center on Route 130 in a “walk-up” second-floor room. Two years later, the new Mashpee Senior Center building on Frank E. Hicks Drive provided a large arts and crafts room. New members at any artistic level are welcome to join. Paintings in the show are in a variety of mediums including oils, acrylics, watercolors and prints. Exhibiting artists include Dorothy Harkins, Ellen Hanley, Cricket George, Pat Boland, Barry Jones-Henry, Reid Higgins, Susie Garvey, Gretchen Irving, Cindy Wilson, Nancy Fiore and Christine O’Neil.
The Annual Meeting of the Members of MashpeeTV was held on Tuesday, December 12 at the Industrial Drive studio. Attendees enjoyed a tour of the studio, refreshments, the annual Manager’s Report, a review of notable events that MashpeeTV has covered throughout the year, and plans for the upcoming year.
