PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- June 15, 2004 -- The University of Rhode Island Feinstein Providence Campus Gallery is celebrating the works of more than 70 artists from all of the state's public institutions of higher education -- URI, RIC and CCRI.

The exhibit, entitled "Raising the Bar," illustrates the quality of arts education at each of the schools and the collective impact of their works on the state’s image as a cultural center. The exhibit runs through June 30, 2004, with a Gallery Night Reception on Thursday, June 17th, 5-9 p.m. Free and open to the public, the Gallery is located in the first and second-floor lobbies at 80 Washington St. Hours are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“This year, we structured the exhibit to be more inclusive of the artists, young and old, who have been enriched by teaching or learning at one of the state’s schools, and in turn are enriching the entire state through their works,” said URI Feinstein Providence Campus Artist-in-Residence Steven Pennell.

The exhibit includes costuming and scenic design, sculpture, pottery and ceramics, drawing, fabric art, painting, photography, mixed media and assemblage. Among the alumni represented in the show are professional artists now working in Texas, New York and Chicago along with the local professionals and master teachers.
