Sneak Peak: EG Featured Artists!

24 Jul

Back Roads by Anne Berg and Valley of the Doll by Zoe Ma

Back Roads Clothing Creates t-shirts with a Rhode Island accent – celebrating Rhode Island’s unique character

Current designs include…

Rhode Island’s Official State Motto, HOPE – proud and loud on the t-shirts.

All The Way and a Coffee Milk – the perfect shirt for the Home of the Hot Wiener.

Blue State – it’s an Election year, and I think I know which way this state will vote!

Ann was inspired to create these shirts because in her opinion, there were no fun, intelligent, interesting, high-quality t-shirts that were made by and for Rhode Islanders. Her shirts are not ordinary t-shirts, they come preloaded with style, fit, and the satisfaction that comes from supporting the entrepreneurial spirit that makes Rhode Island great!

Another great thing about these T-shirts?

Printed here, sold here, and support a micro-business, in turn, supporting other local businesses and entrepreneurs. Anne promises to spread the love!

What difference can purchasing a T-shirt do?

Plenty! $8 from the sale of every Get What You Give shirt goes to Providence Rescue Mission, making a huge difference everyday for the homeless and disadvantaged in our capitol city

Valley of the Doll

 Zoe Ma, a mostly self taught altered artist,  incorporates found objects into jewelry, shrines, and other art oddities.  She strives to make everything one of a kind, and finds great joy in amusing the viewer.

“It is a pleasure for me to recycle discarded items and to draw attention to the beauty I see in them by giving them new life.”

What inspires Zoe?

Everyday events, a past career in the field of psychology, and her mother.  She is drawn to themes of human relationships and behavior, to strong women, and to people who have been seen as odd or unique.

“There is never enough time in the day to do everything I want to do, having to get out of the “artist zone” to take care of everyday life, and needing to earn enough money to eat and pay bills.  I think my personality quirks, such as being kind of moody and distractible can be challenging, but also contribute to my life and art being full of surprises.”

Check out Back Roads by Anne Berg and Valley of the Doll by Zoe Ma at The East Greenwich Art Festival on September 1st and 2nd at the new NE Tech Campus!
