NewGate Theatre in Tiverton Four Corners

Monday, July 31st, 2006

Join NewGate Theatre as they present a re-tooled musical adaptation of: Aristophanes’ The Frogs!  All of the original wit and social commentary is intact with added elements of the Italian Commedia dell’Arte and the British pantomime. NewGate has created a brand new version of this classical piece that contains slapstick, music and hilarity in a ‘family friendly’ version that is accessible to audience members of all ages.  The Frogs follows the journey of Bacchus, the god of wine and poetry as he journeys to Hades following the path forged by his half-brother Hercules, a considerably more heroic figure. Bacchus attempts to rescue his favorite tragic poet Euripides from the Underworld. His efforts result in several wrong turns, a waterlogged trip across the River Styx, more than a few beatings and a (truly) old school poetry slam between Euripides and Aeschylus. 

August 2 & 9, 2006(rain dates August 3rd and 10th) 6:30 p.m.on the lawn of The Meeting House 3850 Main Road Tiverton Four Corners 

Admission is Free!

Artists’ Talk at the Space at Alice

Tuesday, July 25th, 2006

 TUESDAY, JULY 25, 5:30-7PM
SALONS IN THE CITY SERIES
Presented by the Providence Athenaum & Cornish Associates
Cristina DiChiera, Director of Individual and Public Art Programs for the RI State Council on the Arts will moderate a discussion with the artists.
 

The Boat Show
mixed media by

Jim Frain, C.W.Roelle, William Schaff, Todd Watters
“Boat Show” in Rhode Island usually means one thing, but in The Space at Alice this month, it will mean something completely different. After local artists C.W. Roelle, William Schaff and Jim Frain established their friendship at school together, they discovered that their individual artwork also showed well together. When they discovered a common reoccurring theme popping up in each of their work, they grabbed their friend, Todd Watters, a professional art director, and put together the proposal for The Boat Show.
Working in different mediums varying from collage, scratch board, cut paper to wire drawings, each artist has somehow included the image of a boat. Whether literal or as a metaphor, the boat is familiar imagery which translates into a rich variety of visual stories.  While each of these artists has their own individual reason for exploring their chosen medium and common imagery, the show portrays a recognizable theme with both consistency and contrasts.

exhibiting: July 20 through August 5, 2006
gallery hours:   Thursday – Saturday 2 – 7 pm
private viewings:  by appointment 401.421.0254

Seeking Tile Artist

Tuesday, July 25th, 2006

Gilbane is looking for a tile artist to compose an outdoor mosaic on a retaining wall that is directly adjacent to Narragansett beach. The artwork is to reinforce the historic nature of Narragansett (depicting a historic scene) while providing a unique and colorful attraction to those passing by. We welcome feedback and suggestions in regards to the scale and materials for the mosaic – and ask that consideration be placed on the climatic conditions as it will be located across from the ocean. Please also note that this is a time sensitive project and we ask that those interested reply as soon as possible. Thank you for your help,
