Load up the tank of gas and get out on the road this weekend for some artsy fun in Little Rhody!

bullet4/5 – The amazing Janice Kissinger will open her Felt Sutra Studio this Friday night from 5:30 – 8:00 pm for an Open Studio & Spring Sale! Festival Fete is so happy to have Felt Sutra at the Garden City Art Festival on June 8th and 9th – can’t wait to see what she has for us!

bulletThe Newport Art Museum has lots of fun stuff going on…on Saturday 4/6 there will be a Murder at the Museum. Murder at the Museum is an interactive theater experience featuring the Marley Bridges Theatre Company (formerly of the Astors’ Beechwood). Search Griswold House galleries for clues and question suspects in this 90-minute, family-friendly murder mystery. I’ve always wanted to go to this, and I’ve heard it’s family friendly. If you have been before or plan to go this weekend, please leave a comment below to tell us about it!

The Newport Art Museum is also offering a call to artists to submit a digital image of an original artwork you’ve created to their online art gallery contest, Meaning and Metaphor: Art that Tells a Story. Submission deadline is Friday April 5th. Go to the website for more details.

Also this weekend at the Newport Art Museum is a  “Museums on Us” event. If you have a Bank of America/Merrill Lynch credit card you get in free! (Seems kind of ironic, but okay). Sat. 4/6 11am – 4pm and Sunday 4/7 12-4pm.

bullet4/7 – The Wickford Art Association is hosting an Opening Reception for the “A to Z Members Show” from 1-3pm.

bullet4/7 – We do not usually feature performing arts on our weekly art happenings blog post, but I think this will be a visual delight and definitely art. Jim Henson’s daughter, Heather Henson’s show is in Providence this weekend. FirstWorks Providence presents Heather Henson and IBEX Puppetry Celebration of Flight @ the RISD Museum Auditorium.
