Illuminating Steampunk

Illuminating Steampunk

May 2-30, 2015

by Glenn S. Webber in the URI Library Window Gallery

Gallery Night Reception May 21, 5-9pm

An exhibit of delightful and edgy Lighting created from found objects.
Webber says, "The reason behind creating my steampunk lamps can be summed up in to three words - recycling, practicality, and creativity. Recycling because these days we are overrun with stuff and need to focus on reducing land fill, Practicality because lamps serve an everyday function, and Creativity because of my artistic endeavors." "I have been interested in art since my childhood in the 60's, trying my hand at painting and sculpting; and as an older adult I started making films. My love of films, especially fantasy and science fiction sparked my interest in the genre that has become known as 'steampunk." Often constructed with pieces from the Victorian era. An era of elegance and bold imagination which Webber 'brings to light' in this exhibit.

The premiere of a play Created and Performed by Frank V. Toti Jr.

The play explores life's journey through the eye of the playwright. Baggage explores those 'things' we carry with us, 'things' we collect along the way, and the decision to reevaluate, remove, and repack before moving on. Dealing with LGBTQ issues of coming out and coming to terms with life's experiences, the play is presented in celebration of Rhode Island PRIDE and also the Providence International Arts Festival.

Fine artist and photographer Eric Auger is pleased to present his "New Life" exhibit to raise awareness of suicide prevention especially in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ)* youth community. Eric J. Auger is a mixed media artist and costume designer living and working in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. He expresses his unique style in a variety of media including acrylic paint on canvas, pastel, colored pencil, photography and digital images. Eric is the Creative Director and Co-Owner of TEN31 Productions where he has created hundreds of handcrafted costumes. Best known locally as the "living statutes" at Waterfire, their one of a kind unique imagery, combined with theatrical choreography, leaves audiences breathless.
