This Newport:

Photographs by Thomas Palmer

May 21 – September 5, 2016

In the 2015 Newport Annual Members Juried Exhibition, Thomas Palmer received the Newport Art Museum award, resulting in this exhibition of photographs that take a fresh look at Newport. Palmer is renowned for making half-tone separation negatives for reproduction of fine photographs, a skill learned in a four-year apprenticeship to master printer Richard Benson. But it is "the other" Thomas Palmer, the photographer, who is showcased in "This Newport."

Still Life Lives:

Rhode Island Perspectives

June 4 – September 18, 2016

In Rhode Island, the traditional genre of still life painting flourished in the first half of the 20th century among artists at the Rhode Island School of Design, as well as the Art Association of Newport (now the Newport Art Museum). John Frazier, Gordon Peers, Florence Leif, Louise Marianetti and Marion Carry among them, reacted differently to strains of European modernism. "Still Life Lives" showcases the work of these artists, along with a selection of contemporary Rhode Island artists working in still life.
