ArtProv Gallery’s newest exhibit, “Grace and Gravity,” featuring the works of Deborah Baronas, will open August 10 and run through September 25. An opening reception will be held Friday, August 12 from 5-9 p.m. The gallery will also be open late during Gallery Night Providence on August 18 and September 15 from 5 – 9 p.m.
Deborah studied textile design and painting at the Rhode Island School of Design. She often combines translucent overlays of textiles and glass with her drawings and paintings in order to animate the figures and abstract elements of water and air, inviting the viewer into the physical space. At the exhibit, Deborah will be displaying paintings, drawings and interactive fabric installations from two of her new collections featuring swimmers and dancers, which represent a departure from her previous studies of work and culture.
Regular gallery hours are Wed. – Fri. 11. a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sat. 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
