The Galleries of the historic Providence Art Club will host a cash and carry exhibit of works measuring 16”x16” during the month of August. Over sixty of the Club’s exhibiting artist members will be featured in the show, which will take place in the Maxwell Mays and Moitié Galleries, located at 11 Thomas Street. The artworks on view were produced during the month of July specifically for this exhibition. Each artist was given a 16”x16” Masonite panel and encouraged to use it as they saw fit. The artists taking part in the show work in a diverse range of media, making for a fun and exciting exhibition.
The show is a play on the Club’s popular Little Pictures exhibition, which takes place annually from November through the end of December and also features work in the 16”x16” format. Unlike Little Pictures though, the pieces in this August’s 16”x16” show will be presented unframed. The result will be a mosaic-like display of artworks that will give viewers a glimpse of the many styles and media that members of the Providence Art Club use in their work.
Concurrently with this members’ summer exhibition, the Club will present a selection of early twentieth century European travel posters from its permanent collection in the Dodge House Gallery. Both exhibitions will open on Tuesday, August 12 and the Club will host receptions for the shows on Sunday, August 17 from 2-4pm.
