For years, the Art League of Rhode Island and the Newport Art Museum have shared similar missions. Both organizations are passionate about fostering artistic growth among Rhode Island artists, and are dedicated to giving local artists the wider recognition they deserve. With at least twenty-five ALRI members who have had solo exhibitions at the Museum, and numerous Art League artists who are active Newport Art Museum members, collaboration comes naturally.
The ALRI Members’ Exhibition at the Museum is a celebratory exhibit that showcases the exciting work being made by talented artists in the state. Like the similar collaboration in 2006, this fall’s exhibit will bring together a varied body of work from numerous contemporary RI artists. Accompanying the exhibition will be programming that includes film exploring the Rhode Island arts community and a presentation on the Rhode Island School of Design’s “STEM to STEAM” initiative.
