              March Exhibit   

         Rhythm & Movement

             Features Artists
      Arlene Piacquadio
     and Nancy Gardner

The year is speeding up, the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery is gaining momentum in its new location at the Westerly Train Station, and artists continue to evolve. And this month’s show, “Acceleration” – Rhythm & Movement, is vibrant with art that reflects it all.
Come see at the show’s Opening Reception, Friday, March 1st from 5-8 PM. 

Featured artist Arlene Piacquadio uses encaustics, an ancient process employing beeswax and pigments, to communicate ideas and emotions through Lyrical Abstraction.
Featured artist Nancy Gardner primarily uses watercolor, a medium that has the flow of movement and transparency she needs to capture the rhythms of the ocean she loves. 

Works of other Coop artists, in media ranging from oils and photography to woodwork, textiles, hand-made jewelry, sculpture and more, will also be on view. 

Enjoy light refreshments including pizza generously donated by Providence Coal Fired Pizza. The show runs from February 27th - March 31st.
