Winter Exhibitions Opening Reception

February 28, 2020 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us as we welcome three new shows to the galleries!

paperwork: Works on Paper from the Permanent Collection

This exhibition showcases a selection of prints and drawings from the Museum’s treasured collection of works on paper. The Newport Art Museum owns over 1200 prints and drawings dating from the nineteenth-century to present and include exemplary works of American art and a small collection of Japanese prints.

Somaflora: Recent work by Maggie Nowinski

Maggie Nowinski’s drawings combine the sensibilities of scientific illustrations with continuous contour doodling and, most recently, stark black silhouettes to create and examine complex systems: somatic, psychological, and social. Working with layers of intricate pen and ink linework, she gives form to imagined specimens, which often appear as plant-animal hybrids.

The Newport Annual

For over 30 years, the Newport Annual Members’ Juried Exhibition has been a highly anticipated event by artists, curators and collectors in Rhode Island and beyond.

This year, the Newport Art Museum is excited to expand the entry to artists throughout New England (Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine), showcasing an eclectic, regional survey of artworks in various mediums.

Admission is free for Members, and a $10 suggested for non-members. Cash bar, and light refreshments will be served.

This event is made possible by your support of the Annual Fund.
