Various Exhibitions at ArtProv Gallery
in Providence, Rhode Island through May 26

ArtProvS. Tudyk. "I See You in Dreams," 36 x 24, acrylic and collage on birch panel

ArtProv Gallery is featuring three varied and unique exhibits through May 26. Voice in the Woods showcases artist Mary Jane Andreozzi's current series of abstract wax drawings on carved and sculpted wood. The show includes special guest collaborator Phil Gruppuso from Seekonk Woodworking. The artist skillfully designs the found pieces of wood with a balance of natural insight and organic form. Planet SJ! is the work of artist Sarah Jane Lapp. The artist self-describes the show as a semi-retrospective, time-based exhibition as a kind of "Time Haven." The show is an eclectic range of drawings, hand-painted animations and large-scale paintings that were created over time and transition. A featured series of animations is noted to have been created over a decade of time and thoughtfully collaborated with Mark Dresser. An Improving View exhibits the work of artist S. Tudyk's. The driving force behind the abstract composition of mixed-media began over a decade ago with the study of aging wooden billboards. The form and complex patterns that is seen by the artist's eye is broken down to create a new form of visual communication. Each of the three exhibits at ArtProv showcases the unique vision of each respective artist, creating a cornucopia of eye-catching and thought-provoking work. Gallery Night Providence, ArtProv's monthly reception, takes place today, April 19 from 5:00pm⎻9:00pm. ArtProv Gallery is located at the 3rd Floor of 150 Chestnut Street in Providence, Rhode Island and is open Tuesdays⎻Fridays 11:00am⎻5:00pm and Saturdays 12:00pm⎻4:00pm.
