Master Printmaker speaking on the Boston Printmakers Miniature Traveling Print Exhibit

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

Saturday, May 17th 2 pm at Gallery 297, Bristol, RIFree to the public

(Bristol, RI) Master printmaker and painter, Eric Goldberg of Mansfield, CT, will speak on Saturday afternoon, May 17th at 2pm at Gallery 297, 297 Hope Street in Bristol, RI on the formation of the Boston Printmakers’ Miniature Print Traveling Exhibit and about the various techniques used by the 71 printmakers. The exhibit will be on view at Gallery 297 through Saturday, May 31st. This program is open free to the public…just bring a folding chair, stool or cushion and enjoy a casual afternoon of art and light refreshments.

 

Mr. Goldberg studied at Parsons School of Design (NYC), The New School for Social Research (NYC), received his BFA from New York University and his graduate degree from New Mexico University in painting and printmaking. His artwork is held in many corporate, public and private collections, including General Electric and the Taiwan National Museum of Fine Arts. In 2003 he retired after twenty years as chair of a college Fine Arts/Design department to pursue his painting and printmaking full-time. His paintings range in size from murals to works that could be described as almost miniatures. Goldberg’s prints are primarily etchings and usually contain a wide range of aquatints, which he hand-burnishes much in the way one would work a mezzotint. His subject matter ranges from still life to landscape to portrait. Critics and reviewers have described his paintings and prints as “meditative, contemplative and uplifting”.

Gallery hours are Monday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. The gallery is located at 297 Hope St., Second Floor of the Green River Silver Co., in Bristol, Rhode Island. For gallery information or directions, call 401-253-5005 (Green River Silver Co.) or go to www.gallery297.com.

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

All applications accepted through www.callforentry.org

LIPPITT HALL

ABOUT THE INSTITUTION:

The University of Rhode Island began in 1888 as the Rhode Island State Agricultural School. The school became the Rhode Island College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts in 1892, and graduated the first class of 17 members two years later. In 1909 the name of the college was changed to Rhode Island State College, and the program of study was revised and expanded. In 1951 the college became the University of Rhode Island by an act of the General Assembly. The Board of Governors for Higher Education appointed by the governor became the governing body of the University in 1981.

Today, the University has three satellite campuses but this first site remains the largest and busiest. Located in the historic village of Kingston, URI’s main campus is 1,200-acres showcasing both a mix of handsome ivy-covered buildings and contemporary architecture, and serving over 25,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Over 60% of URI students are Rhode Islanders. The average degree-seeking undergraduate is 22 years old, but 12% of students are 25 or older. The most popular undergraduate major is Nursing followed by Communication Studies, Psychology, Pharmacy, and Human Development & Family Studies.

URI’s website defines the school as ‘the State’s public learner-centered research university and a community joined in a common quest for knowledge. The University is committed to enriching the lives of its students through its land, sea, and urban grant traditions. URI is the only public institution in Rhode Island offering undergraduate, graduate, and professional students the distinctive educational opportunities of a major research university. Our undergraduate, graduate, and professional education, research, and outreach serve Rhode Island and beyond. Students, faculty, staff, and alumni are united in one common purpose: to learn and lead together. Embracing Rhode Island’s heritage of independent thought, we value: Creativity and Scholarship; Diversity, Fairness, and Respect; Engaged Learning and Civic Involvement; and Intellectual and Ethical Leadership.

NEW ART GALLERY IN WARREN

Monday, April 28th, 2008

http://www.arts.ri.gov/YES2.JPG 

NEW ART GALLERY OPENS IN WARREN
Upcoming Exhibit to Benefit Audubon Society’s Environmental Education Center in Bristol
 

Taking advantage of the state’s tax-free arts district incentive, YES Gallery + Studio has just opened in Warren’s historic waterfront village. The eclectic and colorful gallery features the work of over thirty regional, national and international artists including painters, sculptors, photographers, jewelers, printmakers, ceramicists, furniture makers, and mixed media artists. It is owned by artist Leigh Medeiros, a native of Rhode Island. Medeiros is a graduate from the University of Hartford’s Hartford Art School and is the former director of the Eisenhauer Gallery on Block Island. Her own artwork has been shown for the past fifteen years at galleries around Rhode Island and Boston, and she was repped by the (now closed) Mixed Media Gallery on Block Island.

The artists at YES Gallery + Studio vary in their media and styles, using everything from oil paint to tiny pink pom-poms in their work.  Many of them are full time established artists such as nationally recognized sculptor and printmaker Bryan Nash Gill . Others, such as textile artist Sarah Symes who was recently profiled in Quilting Arts magazine, have only been at it a few years. Most of them are from out of the state, and some are from far flung places such as Tokyo, Japan where award-winning artist Kana Ito lives. YES is the only gallery in the United States to show her work.

The upcoming exhibition, “Birdbrained/Harebrained,” opens with a reception on Friday May 9 from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. and features the work of YES artists who are inspired by the Spring arrival of Birds and Rabbits. 10% of the proceeds from the exhibition will go to the Audubon Society’s Environmental Education Center in Bristol. As part of the exhibit will be another event on Saturday May 17 at 2 p.m. An Audubon Naturalist will discuss the Society’s work and bring a live owl. In tandem will be a silent auction of “Owl,” a screen print by L.A. based artist Cole Gerst. 100% of the proceeds from the auction will go to ASRI. The event takes place in the gallery’s backyard and, therefore, is weather dependent. A rain date is scheduled for the following Saturday May 24. Reservations are recommended.

The building that YES Gallery + Studio resides was built in 1883 and has a rich history, including, for many years, being the studio of well-known artist and illustrator David Macaulay.

For more information about YES Gallery + Studio or the “Birdbrained/Harebrained” exhibition, please visit the gallery’s website at www.yesgalleryandstudio.com or call (401) 245-7174. The gallery is located at 146 Water Street, Warren. Hours are Tuesday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m and Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
