Harnessing The Power
Of The Sun

Exploring the Art of Cyanotypes

by Rebecca Bruyn

Power of the sun

The sun. How fantastic is it that the light we all take for granted can do so many things? It truly is an incredible resource. It is reliable, rising every day, creating heat and warmth, electricity and, of course, light.

As a photographer, one who uses the light to capture and develop my images, I'm always intrigued as to how it will impact an image not only when I take the photograph but when I print the image as well. Capturing the moment, capturing the light.

Unwind At A Ladies Paint Party: A Fun Twist On The Women's Night Out

Paint party palate of colors

From palette to painting in under three hours

by Nicola Burnell

Local artist and Dennisport gallery owner Hans deCastellane had a hunch that Cape Cod was ready for an event that has been drawing women into New York and Boston galleries for a while now.

He asked, "Do you think Cape women would enjoy an evening of good wine, music, snacks and conversation while painting something that they could take home and hang on their walls?"

"Of course they would!" I replied. "How soon can we start?"

Packed In A Trunk No More!

Readers Respond to Jane Anderson's article Packed in a Trunk

Packed in a trunk

In the Winter Issue of Cape Women Online I wrote about the artwork of my great aunt, Edith Lake Wilkinson. The many encouraging responses from you all helped to propel us into the next phase of the quest to bring her work back into the light.

Stephen Briscoe of the Larkin Gallery discovered Edith thanks to the article and will be mounting a one-woman show of her work during Women's Week this coming October.

We are also in the process of making a documentary film that will follow me as I continue to solve the mystery of Edith's lost life and the journey to return her work to Provincetown.

Thank you, Cape Women, for all your fabulous support.

See you in October.
Here's to being seen!
