Guyer Barn Artists
IN THE BARN:
Guest artist-in-residence Kate DeCiccio joins the HyArts Campus this June 14th-28th, 2015!
Street artist, Kate DeCiccio specializes in transforming ideas into beautiful artwork featuring the familiar.
Kate DeCiccio is inviting the entire community to be a part of her Artist-in-residency at the Guyer Barn. Over the course of two weeks, her artistic process will include direct community input, an artist talk open to the public and many hours spent painting in spaces accessible to the public. One highlight of her project will be a weekend workshop designed for the curious observer/participant who wants to try spray painting & learn how to stencil. Information on the three events available to the public are described below. Kate’s work can be viewed online at: http://kdeciccio.wix.com/k8deciccio and on Instagram: @k8deciccio
Kate DeCiccio grew up spending summers in Barnstable Village and Wellfleet, both huge influences to her fascination with natural forms and local narrative. The last 10 years her street art has focused on working with communities to develop local narratives, and deliver messages of hope, health and resistance. Kate is also an arts educator; her curriculum focuses on teaching creative strategies as tools for coping, exploring identity, critiquing systemic oppression and building community. Her work exudes authenticity because Kate’s approach to making art is through building relationships and facilitating community dialogue about how best to develop imagery that best captures the spirit of a place. Kate also uses textiles, nature & architecture as sources of inspiration, creating forms with rhythm & a sense of playfulness. Her portraiture reflects a dedication to painting people with an attention to how they see themselves or their place in the world.
Artist Robert Roark
Robert K. Roark was born in Laurel, MS in 1944. He has had a long and storied career in the Fine Arts, beginning formally at age 16, when he received his first portrait commission.
At 21, after college studies and serving in the Army, Mr. Roark began his formal studies at the Art Students League of New York and the National Academy under such noted masters as William Draper, classical anatomist Robert Beverly Hale and many others. Mr. Roark’s goal was to become as accomplished as possible in a wide variety of artistic approaches and philosophies. Eventually, Mr.
Roark began to divide his time between New York and Provincetown, MA where he studied light and color theory with Henry Hensche at the Cape School of Art. This diverse education in artistic techniques, color and approaches afforded Mr. Roark a unique perspective which allowed him to develop his own distinctive style of realism.
Throughout his career Mr. Roark has won national recognition and many honors, awards and accolades for his luminous paintings, widely diverse subject matter and artistic technique. Mr. Julian Baird of Tree’s Place described Mr. Roark’s paintings as “a mastery of reflected light” and his interior scenes have elicited references to Vermeer, “while still modern and completely Mr. Roark’s own in style and subject.”
