Castle Hill Studio Visit and "Cape Clay Open: Sushi Exhibition"

October 10th and October 11th


Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill is excited to announce the 2nd year of the Artist Residents at Edgewood Farm. We will be presenting the work of three Artists-in-Residence, Myrna Patterson, Carolyn Wenning and Dianna Wolley, with a studio walkthrough. The studio visit will be Wednesday, October 10, from 4-6pm at Edgewood Farm in the Barn at 3 Edgewood Way in Truro.  The studio visit is a free event, open to the public.

Myrna Patterson is a curious, open-minded adventurer who loves art, history, music, nature, mythology, literature and meeting people from all walks of life.  Her love affair with the Cape began in 2006 when she was studying and documenting seasonal moods and changes through writing and photography.  She is ready and eager to devote all of her time and energy to producing a new poetry collection and synthesizing art and wringing in new works, including collage and watercolor.

Carolyn Wenning is a painter and mixed media artist based in Pittsburgh, PA.  Her work occupies a space between abstraction and figuration.  Initially inspired by the landscape, the images quickly depart to a more poetic realm directed by gesture, mark and color.  Layering and removing materials such as charcoal, tar, raw pigment, graphite and paper allow for a nuanced texture and connection to natural processes.  Wenning is using this time to prepare work for her next solo exhibition, which will take place at Boxheart Gallery in Pittsburgh in October of 2019.

Dianna Wolley has based her work on personal observation gained though living authentically, enjoying literature, and experience.  Her abstract paintings are full of enthusiasm, motion, and memory.  They are an outward symbol for live, for travel and her thirst for knowledge regarding adventurous and dedicated personalities through the ages.  Her work is strongly influenced by a pointed study of 20th Century abstract expressionists’ images and lives. She comes to us from Walla Walla, Washington, and the work she is focusing on is mixed media & cold wax on paper.

Our latest Artists-in-Residence have much to show, so make sure to join us for a studio visit on Wednesday, October 10th from 4-6pm at Edgewood Farm and a possible Poetry Reading as well!

On Thursday October 11th from 4-6pm Truro Center for the Arts will be having an opening reception of “Cape Clay Open: SUSHI!”.  The opening reception will take place at our main gallery at 10 Meetinghouse Road in Truro. The opening is a free event, open to the public.

“Cape Clay Open” is an annual exhibition that features the work of ceramic artists from across the Cape.  This exhibition is open to artists of all experience levels and we invite the public to join us in celebrating the ceramic artists of Cape Cod.  Mac’s Seafood will generously be sponsoring this opening reception and providing sushi for all to enjoy.
