June 1-30, 2015

A transformative expression of life's journey by fine artist and photographer Eric J. Auger

Gallery Night Reception June 18, 5-9pm

The "New Life" exhibit is a series of 30 x 30 acrylic on canvas uniquely designed butterflies presented in a full spectrum of color. With more than a dozen pieces, the viewer is at first inclined to peer closely to see the details of Eric's hand and then step back and see the full joy of his imagination. 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.

EMERGENCE New Works by Amy Rudis Window Gallery

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."

Trans

July 23 at 8:00pm & July 25 at 7:00pm•

a performance work-in-progress

What if your insides did not match others' perceptions of you? What if the world demanded you to be a person you were not? What if you lived in fear all the time? Trans* is created from Oral History interviews of members of the local Trans* community in their own words. Trans* shares personal stories, raises issues and bears witness to the challenges of individuals struggling with their Gender Identity. These personal accounts illuminate individual journeys, help dispel fear and misunderstanding and celebrate courage and tenacity.

Trans* is performed by Cynthia Glinick and Steven Pennell with spoken word by Cody Suzuki as part of the 2nd Annual Providence Fringe Festival July 21-25, 2015. •Discussion will follow performances.

Note: Trans* is the term currently used to denote those who identify as Transgender, transexual, gender queer and gender non-conforming.

All events are free and open to the public.
