     ARTIST OF THE MONTH - CATHY DOOCY: STOPS ALONG THE WAY  
   

ARTIST'S STATEMENT:

For this exhibition,"Stops Along the Way", I have brought together works old and new to explore a part

of the picture making process. It is a question that every artist asks themselves – When is a work “finished”, “done”?

How do I know when to stop? It is a question that can be particularly difficult for me to answer, in part,

because of the way I begin. I rarely have a particular vision, goal or destination in mind. As marks and layers

of paint are applied, a landscape reveals itself. Over and over I have to choose what to keep, what to change.

There is the risk of going too far or not far enough. The process is apt to be interrupted repeatedly to let layers  

of paint dry, to go home, to work on something else, to simply stand back and look. (Are we there yet?)

I might choose to pause indefinitely and leave the imagery unresolved. The viewer can fill in the blanks.

I like to stop mid-journey, while all the places I have passed through are still visible through the thin glazes of paint.

At this stage the works have an edgy excitement.

Brushstrokes and colors are about to transform into clouds, trees and grasses.

It is all in knowing when to stop, when to go on and when to begin anew.

   3:00 PM Unlaunch'd Voices, an afternoon with Walt Whitman  
   

Actor Stephen Collins performs in this one-man show. The play opens with Whitman on the evening of his seventieth birthday. The audience is a visitor in his room as he prepares for his birthday celebration. Whitman begins to reminisce and to question his success as a man and a poet. He tells us his work has proved to be "less than a failure..." He remembers a mystical experience he had in his thirty-seventh year that inspired him to write poetry. During the telling, Whitman transforms into his young vibrant self and we begin to trace back along with him the experiences that led to the creation of Leaves of Grass, his lifetime work. Through poetry and readings of actual letters, we experience Whitman's growth into a mature artist who is at peace about "himself, God and death." This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and is free and open to all.
