EMERGENCE: New Works by Amy Rudis Window Gallery
July 1 - August 21
Gallery Night Reception July 16, 5-9pm
Amy Rudis is an Alumni of Rhode Island College with a BS in Art Education. She is an inspiring and inspired Art teacher at East Providence High School, and continues to create dynamic and evocative work of her own. Amy is a tremendously talented portrait painter who works as the Principal Painter for TEN31 Productions. Her painting is seen in TEN31 Productions' innovative Performance Art/Living Statues across the country and her portraits on canvas are exhibited widely throughout the region.
"As a figurative artist, I feel the importance of capturing both beauty and imperfection in the human form is imperative in evoking emotion within the viewer. Nudes have long been a popular subject matter amongst artists, and have in the recent past seemingly, become a dying art form. It is my desire to give rise to the appreciation for figurative art simply as a work of beauty; drawing the viewer's eye into the subtle nuances of form and color being my main goal. Another important aspect of my work is to capture extreme light and shadow within the subject/setting, much like the renaissance masters and the use of chiaroscuro. My main influences would be the works of Lucian Freud and Philip Pearlstein."
URI Feinstein Providence Campus Arts & Culture, The Anthony Quinn Foundation and the Providence Latin American Film Festival presents
Anthony Quinn Transcending Rolls
September 1 — October 2, 2015
Gallery Night Reception September 17, from 5-9pm
Anthony Quinn was truly a Renaissance Man: father, husband, friend, actor, painter, sculptor, writer, philosopher who loved nature, music, dancing, chess, and playing with his children and pets. Born in Mexico, Quinn played characters representing every culture across the globe, for which he was adopted by people of all nations for his respectful personification of them on the screen.
The exhibit commemorates the 100th Anniversary of Anthony Quinn’s birth. It will feature 100 professional and personal photographs taken throughout his life, many never before displayed from the Quinn Foundation and private family archives. Movie posters and original works of art in a variety of media will also be on display. This ground breaking exhibit will be combined with a screening of Viva Zapata!, the 1952 film starring Marlon Brando and directed by the legendary Elia Kazan, for which Quinn won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
The film will be part of the Providence Latin American Film Festival which will take place from Thursday, October 1 through Sunday, October 4. Viva Zapata! will screen at URI Providence Campus on Friday, October 2nd followed by a panel discussion of Anthony Quinn’s acting and artistic achievements.
All events are free and open to the public.
