August

A time traveler sent back to 1669 would be able to experience the founding of the town of Westerly. This month, the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery celebrates the anniversary with “Westerly: 350 years” - Time Travel, featuring photographers Lisle Ann Jackson and Ed Porter.
Both featured artists evoke time travel by capturing and preserving places and moments.
A “painterly photographer,” featured artist Lisle Ann Jackson uses her camera instead of a brush to create unique imagery that challenges the viewer’s imagination.
Featured artistEd Porter’s childhood in Maine inspired a lifelong love of the outdoors reflected in his evocative photographs of land-  and seascapes


Come meet the artists at the show’s Opening Reception - Friday, August 2nd, from 5 to 8PM.


Ninigret Art Guild show in the United in Art Community Gallery.
The Ninigret Art Guild is composed of painters from shoreline areas of Connecticut and Rhode Island. They have been as a group since 1995 and share a lifelong interest in creating art, especially landscapes and seascapes in various artistic styles and media.
The artists meet monthly in Charlestown to exchange ideas, create art, perfect techniques and enjoy the plein air art experience.  The work of the Guild reflects the various interests of its members and ranges through a variety of subject matter and mediums including watercolor, acrylic, oil, pen and ink, and pastels. The artist members exhibiting in August will include Debi Graves, Peg Gwaltney, Roni Johannsen, Bill Nieranowski, Kate Prior, Janice Ricker, Lucille Selvidio and Howard Park, the Guild’s mentor and instructor.
