The Color of Love:
From Broken Heart to Beautiful Art

by Nicola Burnell

Art is the manifestation of emotion, often inspired by the simplest of moments from daily life. But when an artist feels so moved to complete sixteen pieces, in a single year, the magic of transformation is guiding the work.

In her recent exhibit Endless Possibilities, held at the Studio on Slough Road, artist Marie Canaves pays homage to her long-time partner, Alicia Sanchez.

The show's pieces depict bold and colorful interpretations of Alicia's life-long struggles with various areas in her life, ranging from poor health to the oppression of the Catholic church.

Northside Artists and the Cultural Center of Cape Cod Collect Supplies for Troops

by Katie O'Sullivan

The Cultural Center of Cape Cod in South Yarmouth is host to hundreds of exhibiting artists every year, but the Northside Artists of Cape Cod are the first to invite the public to make their exhibit a drop-off site for supplies for the troops.

The ten artists, who all live on the Cape's north side and exhibit together as the Northside Artists, will show their paintings in the Cultural Center's Board Room gallery from November 30-December 11 with an opening reception slated for December 2 from 5-7 p.m.

Although they've only been a formal "group" for the last year, the Northside Artists have been painting together for over ten years.

"The theme that binds us together," explains Rosanne Francesconi, "is our love of art, our mutual support and encouragement of one another, and our desires to continue learning and to continue to improve in our artistic endeavors."
