Gallery 175 Art Exhibit

June 25 @ 10:00 am - August 25 @ 4:00 pm

A GALLERY FILLED WITH COLOR

 

Gallery 175 will be featuring the colorful paintings of Maira Reinbergs and Ricky Gagnon from June 25 to August 25, 2017.  Both artists are past recipients of Grand Prize Awards given by the Pawtucket Foundation to artists participating in annual art exhibits hosted by the Pawtucket Arts Collaborative.

 

Maira Reinbergs, the 2016 Prizewinner, creates abstract paintings that display subtle and nuanced colors within a minimalist structure enhanced with patterns inspired by textiles.  The tranquility, harmonies, and movements captured in her work is inspired by her love of music and dance.

 

During WWII, Reinbergs fled with family from Latvia and settled in Massachusetts where she attended Massachusetts College of Art.  Her art is widely exhibited both in the US and in Latvia. Reinbergs lives in Attleboro, MA where she maintains a studio where she paints surrounded by light and music.

 

While Reinbergs’ paintings glow and radiate color, Gagnon’s paintings pop and bounce with a riot of color. He paints personal imagery in a decorative manner and often pushes them over the top with beads, glitter, and plastic ornaments.  His images are rendered in a style that reflects his vivid imagination, love of color, and whimsical humor.

 

Winner of the 2012 Award, Gagnon is a self-taught artist who began painting seriously in 1998 when he began rehabbing and decorating his beach house in Riverside, RI. The project has become on-going a multi-media artwork installation. Gagnon is Director and Curator of the New Hope Gallery at the Slater Training School in Cranston, RI.

 

The public is invited to enjoy the work at Gallery 175, located at 175 Main Street in downtown Pawtucket in the Blackstone Valley Visitor Center.  The gallery is open  daily; the hours are 10 am to 4 pm.
