 Who:               Presented by the Four Corners Arts Center and sponsored by
                        Coastal Roasters.

                        The Exhibit is free and open to the public during daylight hours

  Where:           The Meeting House, 3850 Main Road, Tiverton, RI 02878
 The Four Corners Arts Center is pleased to announce the 11th Annual Sculpture Exhibit at The Meeting House at Tiverton Four Corners.  This years works have been curated by James Montford, Interim Director of the Bannister Gallery at Rhode Island College.

More...

The theme of this year’s exhibit is “A Private Moment.”  Curator Montford has noted that “the works all combine to examine and provide dialogue about place in terms of a conceptual awakening….. The role of the artist here is one connected to their materials as an expression of art as a vehicle for change thus celebrating the transformative power of art.” 

This year’s exhibit includes the work of five New England artists: Gabriel Warren, Suzan Shutan, Norma Anderson, Claudia Widdis, and Troy West.

Gabriel Warren’s “Piestrion: Column 11” is fabricated of stainless steel and sits at the top of a small knoll behind the Meeting House.  Inside a shell of polished stainless steel the viewer finds polished beach rocks as a counterpoint to the steel.

Suzan Shutan, who has exhibited Europe as well as locations in the United States, has produced six works.  “Spiral” is built from pine cones and chicken wire.  Her other works are woven from common hardware store plastic fishing line tape.  These include “Phytoplankton” and a Tree Weave series of bright colored tape.

Norma Anderson Fox’s work, “Recycled Horse” is a construction of a horse from recycled materials.  In her artist statement she reflects on her Norwegian background for creating handmade objects. Norma has also studied etching and engraving in France.

Claudia Widdiss’s selections include two works: “Free” and “Joyful Noise.”   Born in Harlem, Claudia has studied sculpture in England and Italy.  Currently, she is teaching sculpture at Eastern Connecticut State University. 

Troy West, an architect, educator, and artist has four pieces in this exhibit including “Warrior”, “Sentinel”, “Ode to Constructivism”, and “Freedom Flag”.  All are painted steel construction.  Troy has won numerous awards and recognition for work to revitalize neighborhoods and housing.

In addition to this year’s summer exhibit, there is an earlier work on display.  In the “pond” adjacent to the Meeting House, Lori Silvia of Little Compton has built a series of water sculptures as part of a Master’s Thesis at The Radcliffe Institute Landscape Design Program. Her work is entitled “Emerge” and represents sculptures joining with nature.  There are floating glass bubbles, balanced stones, and other natural materials forming a nest and other familiar forms. 

For more information about the artists and artist’s statements about their work, visit www.fourcornersarts.org.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PROVIDENCE ATHENAEUM!

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PROVIDENCE ATHENAEUM! AND ALL HAIL, ATHENA! 

Join us Friday, July 11th at 7pm for an Olympian celebration of the

Athenaeum’s 170th birthday at 251 Benefit Street! The ceremonies will

include tributes to our patron goddess, Athena – and our new bust of her

will be installed above the library’s Circulation Desk, that she might

cast her knowing gaze over books and members alike. Our advisor for the

evening’s activities is poet Brett Rutherford, who has studied the

classical tradition of icon induction. Expect an Athenaeum twist on

tradition!

 

The event is free and open to the public, befitting these words spoken

by Francis Wayland at the opening of the Athenaeum on July 11, 1838:

 

“Let us all cheerfully unite, fellow-citizens, in every reasonable

effort to elevate the standard of social and intellectual character

among us. Let us abandon, forever, and forget that they ever existed,

all local and petty distinctions. Let us not labor for the east side or

for the west side, but for the city of Providence .”

 

He then added the following:

 

“In every useful and public-spirited object , let every hand beat time,

all our hearts be in unison; and if money be needed to accomplish it,

let our wealth flow out like water.”

 

Which is just to say that gifts of tribute, while not expected, will

neither be refused!

 

Nectar and ambrosia – or earthly equivalents – will be served. Please

join us!

Nick Hollibaugh and Joshua Enck – winners of the Pawtucket Gateway Design Competition

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

The City of Pawtucket and the John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley Historic Heritage Corridor are pleased to announce that the team of Nick Hollibaugh and Joshua Enck is the winner of the Pawtucket Gateway Design Competition.  Their design for a new sculpture to be located in front of the Visitor Center on the corner of Main Street and Roosevelt Avenue in Pawtucket was selected by a panel of jurors from three finalists in the competition.  The artists created a sculpture they named “Canter and Shed”, a pair of painted metal structures designed to recall smokestacks, buttresses, and rooftop landscapes, inspired by the buildings of Pawtucket.  
Artists Donald Gerola and Kenneth Speiser, were also selected by a jury of design professionals to participate in the competition based upon the strength of their portfolios and body of experience.  All three of the entries created scale models of their concepts ranging from three feet to five feet high which represented sculptures that would be up to 30 feet high. 
The artists worked for the past 5 months developing concepts and creating scale models which are currently on display in the Visitor Center, 175 Main St., Pawtucket.  Awards of $1,500 each have been presented to the three participants for their design work.  The team of Nick Hollibaugh and Joshua Enck will receive an additional $4,500 for winning the competition and preparing construction drawings for the fabrication of the sculpture.
The Competition was sponsored by the City of Pawtucket and the John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley Historic Heritage Corridor Commission.  The focus of the competition was to create an innovative design inspired by the Blackstone River, Blackstone Valley, Industrial Revolution and the Pawtucket Arts and Entertainment District that responds to the unique diversity of the city’s architecture and urban landscape.  The budget for the sculpture is $50,000 which will be raised from private donors.
The City of Pawtucket has become well known for the Annual Pawtucket Arts Festival and its 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 that selected the finalists and the competition winner 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, of Durkee, Brown, Viveiros, Werenfels, Architects.
