Time Lines, Photography by Bill Clark
Bill Clark’s series, Time Lines suggest abstract, yet somehow familiar landscapes. While mysterious and haunting, these pictures seek to relate a more universal story. They invite the viewer to reflect on the themes of unity versus separation: Are we building community or fostering division? How do we work to respect each other’s differences so that we can move forward together?
The Sky Was Blue, Photography by Mary Dondero
Photographer and mixed media artist Mary Dondero spends many hours behind the wheel of her car. This provides her with ample opportunity to view the ever-changing expanse of sky, which she finds to be ‘omnipresent, unpredictable and beautiful’. These vistas inspired her to embark on a personal project in which she associates skies that are overcast, dreary, bright or blue, with frames of mind and oscillating moods that represent the constant state of impermanence in which we live.
PCPA is located in the Russell House (built in 1772) in downtown Providence, around the corner from the Providence Art Club and across the street from Mill’s Tavern Restaurant at 118 North Main Street, 2nd floor.
The gallery is open Fridays from 3:00 – 8:00 pm and Saturdays from 1:00 – 4:00 pm and by appointment. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (401) 400-2542 with any questions. Visit the gallery online. Find us on FaceBook and Twitter.
