National 2022 Botanical Inspirations
April 8 @ 12:00 pm - May 8 @ 4:00 pmFree
Wickford Art Association is launching its National 2022 Botanical Inspirations exhibit with Jurist: Lorraine Bromley, an accomplished watercolorist who resides in Rhode Island. Specializing in painting, design and photography, her work is directly inspired by experiences in the natural world—visual and emotional connections. Her botanicals have been a constant subject matter during her 3-month stays (consecutively for 16 years) as an Artist-in-Residence in Costa Rica. Botanical Inspirations exhibits Rhode Island artists as well as artists across the continental United States. This once a year National CAFÉ exhibit has no medium restriction, but all work is inspired from the botanical world: plants or plant parts valued for their medicinal or therapeutic properties, flavor, and/or scent; herbs are a subset of botanicals. Artists have been encouraged to unleash their creativity and vision. There is an in-gallery exhibit from April 8, 2022 through May 8, 2022 artists. Serving as jurist to curate the exhibit and determine awards, Lorraine Bromley (lorrainebromley.com) is a fine artist, photographer and graphic designer. She believes that the practice of “ART” is a total experience, involving body, mind, and spirit, and that the practice of painting, drawing and observing only enhances one’s personal growth. She is an active member of Wickford Art Association, Spring Bull Gallery (Newport, RI), Providence Art Club, Rhode island Watercolor Society, Art League of Rhode Island, American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, New England Watercolor Society, Museum of Fine Art (Boston, MA), Newport Art Museum, and RISD Museum. Bromley also hosts Artist Retreats in the rugged, rain-forested Costa Rica, Central America. The sixty-two pieces were chosen by the juried from over 166 entries of art. Contact the gallery at (401) 294-6840 at 36 Beach Street, North Kingstown, RI for further information.
