“Our First Show”, SEEN Gallery

A new space has recently entered the Pawtucket scene, holding their first opening this past Saturday night. SEEN Gallery is right on East Ave in a very historic part of Pawtucket (Across the street is an old “Boys Club” building which helps date the amazing brick buildings surrounding the space). They opened their doors with a thirteen artist group exhibition during yet ANOTHER bout of Winter 2015 snowfall. (Though this round was slushier… spring PLEASE come soon!)

As they say on their site “SEEN Gallery is a space that focuses on emerging and established artists who explore contemporary issues in art. We have a particular interest in cultivating fresh talent and offering room for artists to innovate and collaborate. Founded in 2014, the space is directed by Domingo Monteiro and Priya Nadkarni. The gallery is located in the greater Providence area, in the heart of historic Pawtucket. Drawing inspiration from Rhode Island’s cosmopolitan makeup, SEEN Gallery nurtures a diverse group of artists living locally, nationally and abroad.”

I look forward to seeing what they do next. It’s always nice to see the evolution of a place right from the beginning.
