The Providence Art Club is pleased to present a cash and carry exhibition of original artwork in all media ALL under $225!
Work will include ALL MEDIA: PAINTINGS, ORIGINAL PRINTS, PHOTOgraphy, SCULPTURE, GLASS, JEWELRY, FIBER AND MORE! Sure lots of galleries have a little pictures show around this time of year, but no one has been hosting one for quite as long as the second oldest art club in the country. This annual exhibition has been a tradition at the Club for over 75 years! Featuring work by over 85 artists, this year’s show will include not only the traditional landscapes and lovely still lifes as usual but also a selection of more contemporary works by some of our newer members. This includes affordable drawings by Catherine Hamilton, and mixed media work by sculptor Suzanne Volmer. Also Michael Sherman, who works onsite in Rome, and Sarah Powers, who now lives and works in Raleigh, NC, will show their architectural studies and contemporary landscapes only reduced in size. And if you missed Dora Atwater Millikin’s successful solo exhibit in October, here’s your second chance to take home one of her small oil paintings for under $225. They’re a steal! This annual show and sale will also highlight charming oils by the Art Club President, Harley Bartlett and Mary Castelnovo, luscious monotypes by Richard Harrington, prints of the New England landscapes by Regina Partridge and Dan Britt’s watercolor scenes of northern New England. Domine Ragosta and Lynne Meleleu will satisfy those who miss their summer gardens with oils and pastels of floral still lifes. Look for Ragosta’s winter scenes, too, as their beautiful mauve palette make the snow seem inviting! Also notable are Dan Read’s exquisite, glass mobiles and votives in dazzling colors, Joan Arnaud’s ornaments and wearable art and Sue Butler’s playful portraits and abstract landscapes. For those looking to add to their own collection, Carol Strause FitzSimond’s well crafted prints, Johanna McKenzie’s sweeping encaustics, and Martha Guillette’s dazzling landscapes will be available in small sizes: i.e. small prices!
all exhibitions are free and open to the public
