Exhibitions and Shows:

June 11th, 1 – 4pm: Studio Spotlight Show and Reception: As part of the Art Enables Studio Spotlight Series, our Off-Rhode Gallery continues to feature a beautiful group show by Art Enables’ artists Egbert “Clem” Evans, Jamila Rahimi, and Nonja Tiller. Narrative is key to much of the art made by the Art Enables’ artists: a complex, detailed visual world that celebrates the ability for expression. These three artists each make gems that light their vision of the world.

2nd Saturday Workshop Series – Every second Saturday of the month.
