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.
