PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- February 18, 2004 -- Visitors to the University of Rhode Island's Feinstein Providence Campus Galleries may see a whole new view of things next month as they're invited to peer through the lenses of more than a dozen women.

In celebration of Women's History Month, URI's Providence Campus
Gallery will showcase the stylistic diversity in the works of noted professional photographers in an exhibit called "FLASH! Seeing Through the Lens of Female Fotographerz." Free and open to the public, the gallery is located on the first floor of the campus at 80 Washington St. and is open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday. A Gallery Night reception will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. on March 18.

Among the artists featured are Providence's Beata Bertoldi, Elena Calderon, Cinzia Cittadino, Keri Ducharme, Paola Ferrario, Annu Palakunnathu Matthew, Olivia McCullough, Tatiana Pina (whose image "Christmas Tamales" is shown at left), Sabrina Scolari, Tina Tryforos and Mary Ellen Benoit of North Providence, Kerry LeClair of Riverside, Nora Lewis of Newport, and Daniela Munoz Maines of Worcester, Mass (whose image "Scars" is shown above). While they currently reside in the area, several of these artists are originally from or studied in other countries.

The exhibit features works created with a variety of formatting, film, and equipment sources and includes portraits, landscapes, objects and abstracts.

The exhibit also will welcome those attending the Society for Photographic Education conference in Newport who will visit the Providence Campus galleries on March 28.
