Pawtucket Design Competition

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

Three Rhode Island artists, Donald Gerola, Kenneth Speiser, and the team of Nick Hollibaugh and Joshua Enck, presented their concepts for the Pawtucket Gateway Design Competition which will place a new sculpture in front of the Visitor Center on the corner of Main Street and Roosevelt Avenue in Pawtucket. Presentations were made to a panel of jurors comprised of five design professionals charged with selecting the winning design. 

The three artists were selected by the jurors from a field of entries and worked for the past 5 months developing concepts and creating scale models which ranged from three feet to five feet high representing sculptures that would be up to 30 feet high. Awards of $1,500 each have been presented to the three participants for their design work and the winning artist will receive an additional $4,500. The models will be on display for the next month in the Visitor Center, 175 Main St. in Pawtucket.

 

The Competition is being hosted by the City of Pawtucket and the John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley Historic Heritage Corridor. The challenge is to create an innovative design that is inspired by the Blackstone River, Blackstone Valley, Industrial Revolution and the Pawtucket Arts and Entertainment District and responds to the unique diversity of the city’s architecture and urban landscape. The budget for the sculpture is $50,000.

 

The City of Pawtucket has become well known for the Annual Pawtucket Arts Festival and it’s commitment to the visual and performing arts. At the heart of the arts movement is the Visitor Center where the sculpture will be located. The Visitor Center houses two art galleries, a theater company, a movie theater and is host to numerous art and public events throughout the year. The Visitor Center serves the City of Pawtucket, the John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley Historic Heritage Corridor, the Slater Mill Historic Site (birthplace of the Industrial Revolution), and it is an official Tourism Center for the State of RI.

 

The panel of jurors includes James Barnes, Prof. of Architecture, RISD, Howard Ben Tré, Sculptor, Roseann Evans, Professor of Architecture, Roger Williams University Luke Mandle , Architect, Two Ton, Martha Werenfels , Architect, Durkee, Brown, Viveiros, Werenfels, Architects The winning artist will be announced next month.

BOB RIZZO: SHRINES, ICONS AND SPIRITS

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

Newport Art MuseumJune 13 – September 7

 

Reception: June 12, 5 – 7 pm (Gallery Night in Newport)

 

 

 

If you travel to the Democratic Republic of Congo today you will still see, as in centuries past, strange figures made of wood, feathers, cloth, nails and other common objects at the entrances to villages and homes. Intended to control and direct ambivalent spirits, these M’kissi or spirit figures are just one source of inspiration for artist, collector, curator and arts advocate Bob Rizzo. A long-time presence on the arts scene in Providence, Rizzo’s own artwork is the subject of a new exhibition at the Newport Art Museum. “Bob Rizzo: Shrines, Icons and Spirits” opens on Friday, June 13 and runs through September 7, 2008. Rizzo’s interests in tribal art, spiritual worship and rituals from many cultures inform his art. Some of the works in this new show resemble human figures; others look like shrines or reliquaries. All are covered with objects he finds on the street, in the woods, at yard sales or accepted as contributions from friends and acquaintances. Beads, coins, leather scraps, handmade nails, antique hat forms, African & American porcupine quills, shells, buffalo fur, horns & teeth, animal bones, tin & cast medal badges – all seem imbued with special meaning once they pass through Rizzo’s hands.  Each object tells a story or recalls a memory, according to Rizzo who labors on his creations for long periods of time. “I’ve been working on some of them for six to eight years. They’re very complex and densely packed.”

Perishable Theater to host Unique Acoustic/Dance Show

Wednesday, May 28th, 2008

Local RI talent to share spotlight with NYC Dance/Guitar veterans
 
(Providence, Rhode Island, USA) – New York dancer /choreographer Stephanie Harris will join veteran guitarist and singer/songwriter Paul Zunno in bringing their concert blending music and dance to Perishable Theater in Providence for a limited engagement from May 29th to 31st.
 
Harris, best known for her powerful yet graceful choreography will dance to Zunno’s blues, rock and roots music. Their show offers a twist on the traditional solo acoustic concert by incorporating professional dance which is gaining interest throughout the United States and Canada .
 
In a recent interview, Zunno declared, “Dancing brought something wonderful to my songs  . . . and I’ve had guys you’d never expect tell me how much they loved it.”
 
Zunno, former lead guitarist for legendary soul singer and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Wilson Pickett is a highly accomplished guitarist who has performed throughout Europe, The United States and Australia .  Zunno’s music can be heard on MTV’s “The Real World” and in a number of independent films.  He has appeared on “David Letterman” in support of Pickett’s last album and can be seen in the Miramax film, “Only The Strong Survive” backing up Pickett in a live performance.  Zunno has also written and recorded songs for Rhythm and Blues Hall of Fame inductee Gary U.S. Bonds.
 
Harris and Zunno, always willing to teach and share the limelight, arrive days in advance of their concert.  Harris recruits dancers from local schools for a two day master class and choreographs the students into the show.  This creates a unique performance in each locale with a distinctly warm, local feeling for audiences.  Meanwhile Zunno will give live workshops to share his technique and experience.
 
Maria Benson’s Centre for Dance in Cranston has been selected to join this performance and Zunno has scheduled a workshop at Guitar Center in Warwick on May 28th   from 5pm -6pm .
 
Opening the show will be Garry Foisy, a singer/songwriter from Pawtucket and member of the Rhode Island Songwriters Association (RISA).
 
Onesock Productions is presenting the show which starts at 8pm from Thursday May 29th to Saturday May 31st at Perishable Theatre, 95 Empire Street, Providence.  Tickets are $20 or $15 for students/seniors and are available online at www.theatermania.com or by phone at 866-811-4111.
