MashpeeTV Art Gallery
Did you know the MashpeeTV studio also serves as an art gallery featuring works by local artists?
MashpeeTV is excited to announce that photographs by local artists Amy J. Hagberg, Howard Dunn, Lisa Jo Rudy and Lee Geishecker will soon be on display at the MashpeeTV Art Gallery. We will be hosting a reception celebrating the opening of the new exhibit at our 168 Industrial Drive location on Saturday, June 2nd from 5 to 7pm. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome. We look forward to seeing you here!
Amy Hagberg investigates time through slow exposures in her handmade pinhole cameras, using 8″ x 10″ photographic paper for the negatives. This process mirrors the life experience: sometimes a horrible failure occurs, and sometimes a surprising gift is bestowed. She also creates composite photographs by physically combining two images, adhering one printed on translucent vellum over a second printed on cold press paper. This partially obscures the viewer’s gaze from the original image beneath and mimics the shape-shifting of time: the present reshaping our memory.
Howard Dunn’s interest in photography began to blossom as a high school staff photographer, and he continued taking pictures while on assignment overseas as an Architect with the U.S. State Department. His photographs have been included inprestigious exhibitions on the Cape, including at The Cataumet Art Center and the CCMOA in Dennis, where two of his images are in the museum’s permanent collection. Howard’s photographs possess the special quality of transporting the viewer into the scene; he describes his work as “moody”, with a focus on tonal quality and basic composition. The MashpeeTV exhibit will be featuring work from his “Barns” series
Lisa Jo Rudy is a Cape Cod-based iPhone fine art photographer. A Juried Artist Member of the Cape Cod Association, she works with a variety of digital techniques to to evoke mood, uncover relationships, and explore the juxtaposition of the natural and built worlds. Lisa’s work has appeared in dozens of juried shows across the region and in one-woman ad Art and group shows in local museums, galleries and art centers. In addition to fine art prints, Lisa also creates a variety of photo-based products including calendars, cards and ornaments.
Lee Geishecker has been in love with photography since getting her first “real” camera in high school. Each successive camera she purchased only increased the seriousness of Lee’s passion for the art. Once she realized that she was at what she loved, she just kept clicking away. Lee’s art ranges from scenery and landscape to weddings and portraits, both studio and outdoor. Lee has studied at the New England School of Photography (NESOP), and her professional affiliations include membership in the Professional Photographers Association of Massachusetts (PPAM).
