~Art, Culture + Tourism | Gallery At City Hall
OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF THE CITY OF PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND


The Gallery at Providence City Hall was created to showcase the work of local artists. It is open to the public during City Hall business hours: Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm and is located on the second floor.
Offering space to artists and organizations that might not have a permanent gallery, the Gallery at City Hall exhibits an eclectic array of work that highlights the artistic and cultural diversity found in the Providence community.

MAIN GALLERY:



"Memories, Myths & Sacred Objects"
On View: November 18th - March 18th
Artist Reception: Saturday, February 27th 4pm - 6pm


With paintings, photographs and miniature sculptures investigating themes of memory, personal mythology and "sacred" objects; Phyllis Trelli, Polly MacGregor Ford, Sara Argue and Keri King shape meaningful expressions of personal narrative through evocative exploration of color, texture, symbology and scale. Connected through education, work and the arts community in Rhode Island, Providence's historic City Hall is an ideal location for a showing of work by these four artists.

COMMUNITY GALLERY:
