Explore two sides of the art world during this virtual lecture with Gloucester-based artist, Don Gorvett. The event will start with a recorded video tour of Gorvett’s new studio at the Beacon Marine Basin in Gloucester. Gorvett will then be streamed live from the Cape Ann Museum’s current exhibition, CAM (Re)Connects, which features three of his prints. The double-sided printing block used to create The Galleon Mayflower II in Dry Dock and Tarr and Wonson Manufactory is also currently on display.
Gorvett’s immediate surroundings, the seaside, and harbors are fundamental to his work and are much influenced by a romantic passion for history, drama, and music. His considerable skills as a draughtsman and his thorough understanding of the medium of printmaking are paramount features of his bold, graphic style and the somewhat abstract nature of his imagery. In this virtual lecture, hear directly from the artist about his process, his inspiration, and the career that he has built from both.
