ArtProv gallery, a contemporary gallery located in the Jewelry District’s historic Doran Building at 150 Chestnut Street, announced that its new exhibit, “Patterns & Perspectives,” will open August 12, 2014, and run through September 6, 2014. An artist reception will be held from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on August 21st during Gallery Night.

“Patterns & Perspectives” will feature the works of four artists:

  • Marjorie Hellman, whose both descriptive and abstract work is responsive to what 
she sees. While the natural world has provided her with many points of departure over 
the years, since moving to Providence, she draws on her urban environment – the relationship of architecture, water, and reflected light – to inspire the shapes and color 
of her current work.
  • Nick Paciorek, who is drawn to major metropolitan areas for the interplay between figures, architecture, light and color that continually shift from dawn til dusk. Large cities with active skylines, busy streets, and hard edges are one of his favorite subjects.

  • Jeff Schneider, a New York artist whose figures aim to leave viewers puzzled about the meaning between relationships and question the nature and possibility of unity through representational and abstract concepts.

  • Nina Weiss, a landscape painter who’s inspired by the vast open spaces and cornfields of the Midwest farmlands. She translates the intensity and power of nature’s rhythm, forms, colors, and light into her paintings, drawing the viewer into a heightened vision of gesture and hue.

“The four artists we’re exhibiting in “Patterns & Perspectives” are all unique in their subject matters and styles, but they’re unified by their use of shifting patterns of color to convey a mood, both in representational and non-representational work,” said ArtProv gallery co-owner Michele Aucoin.

ArtProv gallery will be open to the public on Tuesdays – Fridays from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m., from August 12 - September 6. Visitors can also view the exhibit by appointment.
