Sterling Mulbry’s oil paintings on wood panel present landscapes and still lifes inspired by her travels throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, Florida and Italy. The palpable surface and luscious color of
Mulbry’s paintings transport the viewer to another world, one where the untamed elements of nature may very well cross the line from their world to ours. A native of Florida, she is a graduate of Evergreen State College, Olympia, Washington, and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts. Mulbry’s paintings can be found in numerous private and corporate collections.  READ MORE

Crew Scapes: October 16 – November 14, 2014

Featuring Nick Paciorek


Thursday, October 16
5-9 pm
during Gallery Night Providence

ArtProv newest exhibit titled “Crew Scapes” features Nick Paciorek’s oil paintings of rowers on the Charles River in Boston, inspired by the Head of the Charles regatta held each fall. It will run through November 14, with an opening reception during Gallery Night Providence on October 16 from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Paciorek has attended the Head of the Charles Regatta for many years, returning each time to his studio with photos and a sketchbook of drawings of the three-mile-long celebration of light and color that serve as the inspiration for his paintings. His finished crew works vividly depict the sport’s orchestrated motion, the rowers’ intensity of emotion, and the vibrancy of the landscape through which the boats pass.

“Nick loves the Head of the Charles race for its range of subject matter, from the athletes’ powerful release of bottled force to the interplay of the clean, bright light with the landscape,” said gallery co-owner Michele Aucoin. “His crew paintings are not only stunning, but they also represent what has become a New England tradition every fall, and make for the perfect works to exhibit in October.”

ArtProv gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., every Gallery Night Providence and by appointment. To set up an appointment, call call 401-641-5182 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Earthen Elements: September 16 – October 10, 2014

Featuring Vibha Nanda


Thursday, September 18
5-9 pm
during Gallery Night Providence

ArtProv will host visiting artist Vibha Nanda and her abstract paintings in its new exhibit, “Earthen Elements.” The show will run from September 16, 2014, through October 10, 2014, with an artist reception with Vibha during Gallery Night Providence on September 18 from 5 – 9p.m.

Vibha is an Indian-born, Doha, Qatar-based painter and sculptor. Her dramatic canvasses depict organic abstraction, from which emerge figurative traces, cities, and landscapes in exquisite color gradients. Her ceramic sculpture relies less on color and more on linear form, some seemingly assembled from stacked rectangles and triangles into surreal, abstract forms while others invoke visions of maternal instinct and the creation of life.

ArtProv gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., every Gallery Night Providence and by appointment. To set up an appointment, call call 401-641-5182 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Patterns & Perspectives: August 12 – September 11, 2014

Featuring Marjorie Hellman, Nick Paciorek, Jeff Schneider, and Nina Weiss


Thursday, August 21
5-9 pm
during Gallery Night Providence

Patterns & Perspectives, will open at ArtProv gallery on August 12, 2014, and run through September 11, 2014. An artist reception will be held from 5 pm to 9 pm on August 21st during Gallery Night Providence. The gallery will be open Tuesdays - Fridays, 11 am - 2 pm or by appointment.

Patterns & Perspectives will feature the work 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.



Fiber Works: July 14 – August 2, 2014

Featuring Liz Alpert Fay, Michelle Sirois-Silver, Mary Jane Andreozzi and Judith Larzelere


Thursday, July 17
5-9 pm
during Gallery Night Providence

ArtProv gallery will also be open to the public on the following days during the Handweavers Guild of Americas Convergence in Providence: Monday, July 14 - Thursday, July 17, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Visitors can also view the exhibit by appointment.


Fiber Works will feature the textile works of four artists:


Liz Alpert Fay, who creates hand-hooked rugs, some of which are purely explorations in color while others tell stories. She is also a mixed media sculptor that combines objects of inspiration found in nature with textiles to create 3D works of art.





Michelle Sirois-Silver, whose textile designs imply the subjects rather than state them directly. Her works feature a variety of techniques – including hand hooking, screen print and stitch – and materials that inform one another layer upon layer.











Mary Jane Andreozzi, who is inspired by the grace, strength, and beauty of the natural world. Her fiber pieces, made with a variety of textiles from hand dyed wool to recycled fabric, are created by a traditional textile technique passed down from generations of women who used old worn clothing cut into rags to create rugs.













Judith Larzelere, an art quilt innovator whose signature style combines machine strip piecing and machine strip quilting, creates abstract works that emphasize color interaction and movement. They have great impact when viewed at a distance, and reveal detail and nuance upon closer inspection.



Inspired Color: May 31 – July 6, 2014

Featuring Artist Linnea Toney Leeming


Thursday, June 19
5-9 pm
during Gallery Night Providence

Linnea Toney Leeming is an abstract artist who pursued her passion for painting after working and exhibiting for many years as a fine art photographer. When painting, Linnea creates her own sense of space and time by listening to the unconscious and using the abstractionist’s process-driven approach to painting. Her large, abstract paintings are fueled by decisions of color and space. In her works, lines, patterns and textures overlap and merge into unified compositions. What results are paintings that burst with color and spark the imagination.
