URI students have ‘pulse’ on art
KINGSTON, R.I. -- March 1, 2006 -- There are just a few days left to enjoy the URI Art Student Exhibition "Pulse" at the South County Art Association, Helme House, 2587 Kingstown Road, Kingston. The exhibition runs through March 4. Hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.
“This is a biennial show at Helme House begun a number of years ago,” says Barbara Pagh, chair of the URI Art Department. “ URI faculty were asked to select work at the end of the fall semester for the show so there is a range of media, including printmaking, digital prints, linocuts, lithographs, etchings, monotypes, painting, acrylic and oil drawing, charcoal, graphite photography, Polaroid emulsion, liquid light on aluminum, gum bichromate, silver gelatin prints, sculpture, painted plaster, metal, and found objects.”
There are 30 students’ works represented in the show. The students are: Carly Bergey, Meghan Bernal, Emily Bibb, Kevin Charles, Mary Ciesynski, Kristina Cinquegrana, Rebekah Cook, Matthew D'Amico, Ambrosia Ferria, Craig Fox, Brittany Haigh, Troy Hallisey, Stephen Halpern, Reid Harrington, Michael Harrington, Sarah Hewitt, Sarah Higgins, Erin Hodne, Kristin Hottin, Ian Jenkins, Nadia Khan, Jeremy Kilmartin, Valerie Kitchin, Alicia Kruger, Mary Kudlak, James Malouf, Nick McGowan, Joanna Miller, Shannon Pattie, Melissa Penza, Melanie Petrous, Melissa St. Andre, Krysten Tellier, Todd Urso, and Will Wilson.
“The work looks great,” says Pagh. “It is a good experience for students to show their work outside of the hallways of the Fine Arts Center in a professional setting.”
