Open call for entries – Gallery Q and RI Pride announce a call to artists for a month long exhibition June 4-28 in downtown Providence, RI. Open to GLBTQ artists working in drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, ceramics, fiber, jewelry, glass, wood, metal, printmaking and multimedia. The artist submission deadline is May 21, 2010 with an entry fee of $20. The RI Pride Art Show has a long tradition of showcasing some of the best artistic talents in the LGBTQ community and working in partnership with Gallery Q, new elements have been added to enhance the experience of understanding art’s role in creating change in the world around us.

Rhode Islander wins Poetry Out Loud national competition!

April 28th, 2010

Last evening I received a phone call from a friend at the National Endowment for the Arts.  “Your Rhode Island state champion won!,”  she said.  I knew immediately what she meant.

Amber Johnson, our Rhode Island champion in our state’s Poetry Out Loud competition, won the national championship.

What is Poetry Out Loud?  Here’s the description from our press release of a month or so ago:

Poetry Out Loud is a program sponsored nationally by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, and The Poetry Foundation in Chicago. Organized along the lines of the national spelling bee, Poetry Out Loud promotes competitions at the high school level throughout the country, with local winners going on to state finals, and from there to the national championship competition.

As the day goes on we’ll have more to say about this.  For now, congratulations, Amber!

Pawtucket values its arts high school!

April 27th, 2010

Here’s what it says in the Projo this morning, in an article speaking to the findings of an audit by the Pawtucket School Department looking at ways they can save money:
Walsh students with Tolman classes? The audit says $731,000 could be saved yearly if students at Jacqueline M. Walsh School for the Performing and Visual Arts took their basic subjects at Tolman High School, allowing elimination of 6.5 core-subject teachers at Walsh while maintaining Walsh’s specialized arts curriculum. The School Department rejects the idea, saying Walsh is a high-performing school and a source of pride for the city. It would also mean eliminating a Walsh principal with a strong arts background.
Yeah, Walsh!

Cheryl Helms announces retirement as Executive Director of the Redwood Library and Athenaeum

April 23rd, 2010

Cheryl Helms announces retirement from Redwood Library

April 23, 2010 – Newport, RI: After fifteen years with the Redwood Library and Athenaeum, Cheryl Helms has announced her retirement as Executive Director. Mrs. Helms, who has led the organization through one of its most intense times in its history, will continue to lead the library as the board searches for a new executive director.

Cheryl joined the Redwood in 1995, and became its executive director in 1998. During her tenure, the Redwood completed a total restoration of its historic building, installed new circulation and cataloging systems for the library and special collections, and began the restoration of the grounds and Pope Allee, along with many other initiatives.

“I can’t think of any place that I love more than the Redwood,” said Mrs. Helms. “Every time I walk through the doors on Redwood Street and enter the Rovensky Room, I still feel that same sense of awe and wonder that I felt the very first time I went into the Redwood in 1995.”

Ann Conner, President of the Board of Trustees, said “We all look around with a sense of pride and accomplishment at how far Cheryl has brought this historic library. It will be hard to imagine the programs in the Harrison Room without Cheryl at the podium.”

The board has begun a search for a new Executive Director. “It will take a special person to replace Cheryl,” said Toby Field, Trustee.

The Redwood Library and Athenæum was established in 1747 by Abraham Redwood and a group of his friends and associates. It is the oldest lending library in America, and the oldest library building in continuous use in the country. Founded in 1747 by forty-six proprietors upon the principle of “having nothing in view but the good of mankind,” its mission continues over 250 years later. The Redwood remains a “membership library” (open to the public) supported by Proprietors, who own shares and pay an annual assessment, and Subscribers, who pay fees. The Original Collection of 751 titles has grown to a collection numbering more than 200,000 volumes. Today the Library is open without charge to qualified scholars and researchers and to those making use of the collections. Lectures, exhibitions, fine arts displays, and other educational activities are part of Redwood Library and Athenaeum’s continuous offerings to the community.

For further information contact Ann Conner, Board President, Redwood Library and Athenaeum, 401-924-1510.

Two upcoming events at the Four Corners Art Center in Tiverton

April 22nd, 2010

Film Series Screening

Four Corners Arts Center is pleased to present as part of their ongoing Film Series “Down to the Sea in Ships” on Wednesday, May 5th 7:00 p.m. at the Meeting House 3850 Main Road Tiverton Four Corners.

Down to the Sea in Ships (1922-Staring Clara Bow and Raymond McKee) is set in a coastal Massachusetts town, settled by a small group of Quakers. Bow – at that point working in her second film – was hired in a small role as Courtot’s little sister, but stole every scene she was in, increasing her critical acclaim and fame virtually overnight. Fascinating for Bow’s performance and for its insight into the historic whaling industry.  Shot on location in New Bedford, Massachusetts.

Cartoonist proves that “anyone can draw”

The Four Corners Arts Center is pleased to present Steve Brosnihan’s CARTOONAGRAMS-Anyone Can Draw.  For ages 17 and under on Saturday May 1, 2010 10:30 a.m. at the Meeting House 3850 Main Road Tiverton Four Corners

Steve Brosnihan is a Rhode Island cartoonist who has been teaching his “Cartoonagrams” program for over 15 years. Using letters of the alphabet, Steve teaches students to draw cartoon characters he has created. Cartoonagrams are very easy to learn and remember. This program is great for all students, including those who don’t believe they have artistic ability. The method guarantees satisfying results—and a lot of fun–for everyone.

The Four Corners Arts Center is a federally approved 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation founded in 1993.  Our mission is to promote the arts at Tiverton Four Corners and the surrounding FarmCoast communities.
