Get Inspired

Recently, a number of leading foundations including Ford, Rockefeller, Prudential and Rasmuson have taken a stand in the fight to support the art world. In September of 2005, these foundations founded United States Artists, spawning the creation of USA Projects, “a creative community that connects people with artists and helps them to make tax-deductible contributions to projects in the performing, visual, media and literary arts.”

Sue McNally plays a vital role with her contribution to the USA Projects. Her individual project, This Land is My Land, has been extremely successful. For over 20 years, Sue has been traveling throughout the United States, creating large scale paintings of various American landscapes, capturing small towns, remote areas and even big cities.

 “I feel most comfortable in the quiet of the wilderness and have a deep admiration for nature, its strength and its beauty; my work is inspired by the land and the introspection that accompanies me when spending time in nature.”-Sue McNally

Get involved today. Read more about United States Artists and in particular, Sue’s USA Project, This Land is My Land today

Looking forward to seeing you at the Garden City Center Art Festival on June 9th & 10th in Cranston, Rhode Island!

Big thanks to our wonderful sponsors!

18 Mar

Attention: Art Lovers!

Looking for something fun to do with the family on this lovely Sunday afternoon?

The deCordova sculpture park and museum in Lincoln, MA might have just what you’re looking for!

The deCordova is currently offering some pretty cool exhibitions worth checking out!

The deCordova Biennial is a “survey exhibition focused on emphasizing the quality and variety of work rather than any single or overarching theme” (http://www.decordova.org/art/exhibition/2012-decordova-biennial).

This exhibition displays artwork from artists throughout New England and works toward creating a “diverse range of approaches to media and content”(www.decordova.org).

You can check out participating artists here

Just a quick glimpse at some of the other exhibitions currently being displayed at the deCordova…

Wall Works – June 11, 2011 – April 22,2012

PLATFORM 7: Tory Fair, Testing a Worldview (Again) – July 19, 2011 – April 22,2012

Gallery Night Providence 2012

8 Mar

The 2012 Gallery Night season is slowly approaching, as artists get ready to showcase some of their amazing works on March 15th, and every third Thursday of each month leading up to November. It should be a night filled with great art and excitement throughout the city of Providence, with 6 new galleries joining Gallery Night, totaling to 25 galleries, 5 buses, and 5 guided tours. A night to be remembered for any art connoisseur, as there is expected to be more than just artwork at many of these galleries, some offering free art lessons and music among others! March celebrity guides, Ian Alden Russell and the Big Nazo Puppets will also be coming out to celebrate the art festivities next week.

This event is FREE and will be running from 5-9pm. Tours start at One Regency Plaza and will run every half hour until 7pm.
