|Greetings From Gallery Z!
This week is an exciting week of firsts at Gallery Z.
Gallery Z is re-launching its Art, Food, & Wine to Create Awareness for a Cause event. On Thursday, April 30, from 5pm to 7pm, Gallery Z will partner with our Public Art Window organization, Armenian Children’s Milk Fund, to host a fund-raising event to elevate public consciousness on different issues and causes. This event will feature food from Restaurant 242 and wine from Gasbarro’s Wines of Historic Federal Hill.
Tomorrow we will open a special one-week-only exhibition of artwork that will showcase the talents of the senior art students at the University of Rhode Island. The 2008-2009 Senior Seminar Class at the University of Rhode Island’s Department of Fine Art represents a talented and diverse group of young artists. Gallery Z has worked closely with URI Fine Art faculty to have an exhibition that is timed for the end of these students’ academic careers and the beginning of their professional ones. This exhibition has been co-curated by URI Fine Art Department faculty and established Gallery Z artists Brian O’Malley and Bob Dilworth.
Facing new challenges and limited resources this academic year, the Fine Arts Center Galleries at the University of Rhode Island are now forced to try to survive without any funding. Gallery Z has decided that it is important to support the fine art students at URI by providing them with an accessible space to showcase their artwork in Providence since the closing of the URI galleries in the summer of 2008.
The opening reception for this special exhibition will be combined with our Art, Food, & Wine event this month on Thursday evening from 5pm to 9pm.
Our next exhibition to come in May is a solo exhibition of Photo Constructives by Lawrence Sykes. For more information on “Ancient Timeless Shores: Photo-Constructives” by Lawrence Sykes, visit us online at http://www.galleryzprov.com/exhibits-u.html

has been sending life- saving soy-based infant formula and dry powdered milk to Armenia since 1989. The European Federation of the Red Cross has commended ACMF for the benefits ACMF’s sustaining nutritional programs provide to Armenia’s next generation, and for the dedication ACMF brings to its work. ACMF is a volunteer organization formed by a diverse group of caring individuals. Its headquarters are Belmont, MA. ACMF volunteers and supporters come from across the United States.
