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.”

Pow! Science!

17 Jul

Only one day away from the season’s final Newport Hullabaloo!

Come out to the Newport Yachting Center at sunset (5:30-9pm) and join Festival Fete for live local entertainment, arts and much more!

Pow! Science! Will be there! Will you?

Pow! Science! started out in 2003 providing “Science Enrichment” to elementary and middle school aged kids through their unique hands on approach to the world of science. The team has since expanded from the days of working solely in school programs or at birthday parties. Pow! Science! can now be found at “almost any sort of venue where kids can be entertained and enlightened by science oriented activities!”
The Pow! Science! team is comprised of a number of science professionals who hold, or are working toward, degrees in Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Biology, Environmental Geology and Marine Science. One thing the team has in common is the desire to incorporate the audience into each and every experiment they conduct!
Pow! Science! has 13 different Classroom Science Presentations and 9 Birthday Party themes
If you attended last week’s Hullabaloo, we are sure you remember the Hotwheels/Blu Track set-up!
“Incidentally, “Pow!” is not an acronym. It’s just like the sound effect from the old Batman show in the 60s. If an experiment doesn’t have enough “Pow!” we won’t do it.” -Eric B., Pow! Science!
Check out Pow! Science! and purchase tons of cool science tools you can use on your own!
You won’t want to miss these guys, along with our other fabulous performers at the LAST Hullabaloo of the Season!
