For those of you unfamiliar with Joe’s Twin Villa, the Osterville hotspot was owned and operated by generations of Joe Diggs’ family (it was named after his grandfather). Although it is now closed, it will long be remembered by its many Cape regulars for its down-home atmosphere, food, drink, and music.
In powerful mixed media works that combine action painting, photography, graffiti and collage, Diggs’ art explores what it means to be a black man in America. “To me painting is magic,” he writes on his website. “Images appear out of nothing, blobs of color transform themselves to a new meaning."
Opening event Saturday August 3, 2:00pm-11:00pm
Exhibit runs August 4-September 2, 2019
Cotuit Center for the Arts is also excited to present "Voices of Cotuit", a new program bringing the voices of our artists to our award winning gallery. Patrons will be able to use their smart phones to listen to recordings of current exhibitors discussing the history and inspiration behind their artwork. For this latest exhibit, Joe Diggs shares stories of the legacy of Joe's Twin Villa, and of his previous exhibitions that led to this current series.
