"Moments of Crisis and Transcendence"
"Moments of crisis. This is the unifying theme of this show. Both the moment of crisis itself and the immediate
aftermath. Our world is impermanent. Forms and situations are always changing. Sometimes violently. This is
the entry point for these paintings. Whether on a battlefield, political rally, or spiritual path, unavoidable
destabilizing events inherent to the human condition occur. These paintings explore this experience." - David Barnes, 2013

"Juried URI Art Student Exhibition"
The upcoming Annual Juried Student Exhibition represents the outstanding creative work of students currently enrolled at the University of Rhode Island. While submitters’ qualifications do not mandate a major in Art, inevitably the majority of submissions are those of current Art (Studio) majors at the University of Rhode Island, and hence they reflect the serious application of current as well as traditional modes of art making.
