February Openings at the Newport Art Museum

Many goings on at the Newport Art Museum this month. I went over to the island knowing two artists who had work in display, but when I arrived I discovered many others that I knew who who were also on display. With the awards ceremony for the juried members show taking place while I was there, it made for a very packed museum on a cold winter’s night. Not so crowded, however, that I couldn’t maneuver around the room while the awards were being announced. I leave you with numerous images of the many exhibitions on display, but here’s a fun hint… you’ll be learning more about a few of these artists here in the near(ish) future. Not saying who.
