PAWTUCKET- The Rhode Island Watercolor Society will host a fundraiser exhibition, featuring up to 1,000 works on paper that will be on display all month.
Over 60 artists will participate in what is sure to be a great exhibition raising money to allow the RIWS to keep their free gallery admittance policy as well as keep their many art classes available to the public at an affordable price. With the goal to keep art available to the community, the RIWS will celebrate all small works through the use of donated original work no bigger than 9 by 12 inches in size, that can be donated by anyone in the community.
The fundraiser exhibition will be a display of work rendered in a variety of materials including water media, pen and ink, and collage, all that will be available to purchase for $20.
With over 300 members, the society hopes to have 1,000 pieces of art to sell for the fundraiser exhibition, all proceeds that will help the society stay true to the goals theyâ€™ve had since opening in 1896.
â€śItâ€™s a great thing to bring attention to who we are and bring affordable art to the community,â€ťsaid gallery director Lori Estrella.
