Beat the heat by visiting museums and galleries

Rhode Island Rocks  5"x7" acrylic - on view at the Wickford Art Assocition Gallery

This summer the southern New England weather has been fierce! Between the heat and humidity, we've been all melty here. So it's a great time for visiting the beach, and finding ways to escape the heat. You can do both by taking a road trip to Wickford, RI to see North Kingston town beach, and check out the Wickford Art Association right next door. My acrylic painting Rhode Island Rocks was accepted into their current exhibition Art of the Ocean State.

Warwick Museum of Art

Another great venue to visit for free air conditioning is the Warwick Museum of Art in Apponaug, RI. The current show Life in the Round - Remembering the Warwick Musical Theatre is concluding today, so if you haven't seen in yet, I urge you to check it out ASAP! The exhibit features a documentary film and loads of memorabilia from the theater.

In My Garden  16"x20"  mixed-media encaustic - on view at the Warwick Museum of Art

The upcoming exhibit at the Warwick Museum of Art is The Elements, on display August 2nd through the 28th, and features artwork depicting earth, air, fire and water. My mixed-media encaustic work In My Garden will be included in the show. This is the first large-format painting I've tried with the encaustic, so I'm glad it made it into the show. Please come check it out and support the WMOA!
