January 9, 2012: Artists are invited to enter their original artwork in pastels, charcoal, and watercolor in the next Jamestown Town Hall Gallery show, sponsored by the Conanicut Island Art Association.
The CIAA is pleased to announce that the juror for the show will be William Heydt, a noted watercolor artist based in Newport. He is known for his “Newportant People” portraits, shown at the Newport Art Museum and elsewhere. Heydt’s characteristic style places restaurant staff, artists, ministers and other local friends in their work or social environments. His work may be seen on: http://www.williamheydt.com.
Drop off work on Thursday, January 19, 2012, between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m., in the Town Hall at 93 Narragansett Avenue, Jamestown. This show will hang from January 23 – February 28, 2012, decorating the public interiors of our Town Hall with the work of local artists. First, second, and third prizes will be awarded.
