Native artists set for Warwick appearance

February 11, 2013 by  

The exhibit Eastern Woodland Native Arts at the Warwick Museum of Art will be seeking to give Native Americans the chance to have their art pieces viewed by a wider audience.

The exhibit, which is a collaboration between the Warwick Museum, the Tomaquag Indian Memorial Museum, and the Warwick Diversity Commission, will feature the artwork of 14 local Native American artists who submitted their work in order to qualify. The artwork featured will range from traditional native art to contemporary, encompassing such styles as drawing, fabric art, and ceramics.

A couple of upcoming events related to the exhibit include a reception at the Warwick Museum on February 9 from 12:30 pm – 4: 30 pm. This will give people the opportunity to enjoy the works of art and to meet the artists themselves. There will also be a dream catcher workshop on February 12 from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, for which there will be a $15 fee for materials.

The museum is no doubt working with Warwick printing companies to prepare for this exhibit. They will want to advertise it in the community using both social media and print sources. For example, flyers can be designed and printed that give background on each artist, which would likely encourage more people to visit the exhibit.

The exhibit is showing at the Warwick Museum of Art until February 23. Admission is free and the museum is open Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, please call 401-737-0010.
