AS220Margie Butler, "Compass Rose," acrylic on cardboard with rubber and fabric, 7 x 12" 2018

AS220 is showcasing Margie Butler's exhibit "COUNTERBALANCE" in the Main Gallery through January 27. There will be an opening reception this Saturday, January 13, from 5:00pm - 7:00pm. Her new collection of work being shown in this exhibit ranges from mixed media collage to abstract paintings. Butler's broad use of organic and found materials combined with form and color will draw the viewer in immediately. These materials give Butler's paintings intriguing textures and bring them beyond the confines of their canvases. AS220's Main Gallery is located at 115 Empire Street in Providence, Rhode Island. AS220 offers artists opportunities to live, work, exhibit and perform in our facilities, including: four rotating gallery spaces, a performance stage, a black box theater, a print shop, a darkroom and media arts lab, a fabrication and electronics lab, a dance studio, a youth program focusing on youth under state care and in the Rhode Island juvenile detention facility, 47 affordable live/work studios for artists, and a bar and restaurant.

Moose Hill
Helen Lozoraitis, "The Watcher"

Through February 5th, Mass Audubon's Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary's Gallery is showing "Seeing Through the Trees". The distinctive work by the three exhibiting artists Art Donahue, Helen Lozoraitis, and Lindsey Nygaard, explores the endless beauty of nature and the habitats within. Art Donahue brings technology and the aesthetics of photography together showing the viewer his perspective on naturalistic landscapes. Helen Lozoraitis photographs and creates mixed media from the real world and fictional landscapes. Lindsey Nygaard's oil paintings reveal a simple yet stunning complex image of the natural world. "Seeing Through the Trees" reveals the hidden beauty of nature that often goes unnoticed in the modern era. Each piece shows the viewer those elusive parts of the natural world; revealing what they might see if they looked deeper into the trees. Mass Audubon's Moose Hill is located at 293 Moose Hill Parkway in Sharon, MA and is open daily from 10:00am - 4:00pm.
