Artist Talk with Artist-in-Residence Aimée Beaubien

June 30, 2022 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

For over two centuries, Newport has attracted influential artists, artisans, writers, architects and designers who were inspired by the natural beauty of this oceanfront community. The Newport Art Museum artist residency, AiR/Newport, is designed to encourage the creative, intellectual and personal growth of emerging and established visual artists and designers by giving them the time, space, and solitude needed to create, apart from the daily demands of production and deadline.

After a two-year postponement due to the global health pandemic, the Newport Art Museum has welcomed artist Aimée Beaubien for the month of June 2022!

Join our Artist Talk on June 30 to hear directly from Aimée and see what was created during her residency in the Museum’s Griswold House.

Free. RSVP appreciated.
Talk will take place IN PERSON only.

About the Artist

Aimée Beaubien is an artist living and working in Chicago. Beaubien’s work has been exhibited and published nationally and internationally. Her cut-up photographic collages, installations and artist books explore networks of meaning and association between the real and the ideal: a photographed plant, interlaced vine, woven topography merge into fields of color and pattern and back again expanding the ever more complicated sensations of reading a photograph and experiencing nature. Aimée Beaubien is an Associate Professor of Photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, IL where she has taught since 1997.

Our AiR/Newport initiative is possible thanks to the generosity of several donors, including the Bay View Foundation, Cynthia Sinclair, EJMP Fund for Philanthropy, the Sand Foundation, and Roseanne Williams. Moreover, a Cultural Facilities grant from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts funded an upgraded AiR studio space in our Museum School, as well improvements to our artist residency studio apartment within our historic John N.A. Griswold House.
