“Color Passages” Opens at ArtProv Gallery
New Show to be Featured During the First Gallery Night Providence of the 20TH Anniversary Season March 17
ArtProv Gallery, a contemporary gallery located in the Jewelry District’s historic Doran Building at 150 Chestnut Street, announced today that its newest exhibit, “Color Passages,” will open on February 17, 2016, and run through March 20, 2016. An artist reception will be held on Friday, February 26 from 5 – 9 p.m.
The show will also be open during Gallery Night Providence on March 17 from 5 – 9 p.m. Color Passages will feature works by artists Karen Roarke and Maira Reinbergs.
Karen, a resident of Middletown, takes inspiration from her surroundings, both interior and exterior spaces. She specializes in non-representational painting due to her attraction to color, light, transparency and pattern. Her medium is acrylic paint.
Maira, who lives in Attleboro, has been painting for nearly 40 years. She uses mostly acrylics on canvas, raw fabric and paper, and also creates monotypes. Her paintings are explorations of color, in which she strives to capture its illusiveness, subtleties and mysteries.
“This show displays the complementary works of two artists who share a love of color and pattern and their interplay,” said Michele Aucoin, ArtProv Gallery co-owner. ArtProv Gallery is open Wednesday-Friday 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., every Gallery Night Providence, and for evening and weekend appointments. Check website for weekly extended hours.
