Every third Thursday of the month, from March to November, Gallery Night opens the doors of 20+ galleries across the city of Providence, Rhode Island. See contemporary art at the David Winton Bell Gallery then peruse one-of-a-kind artisan-crafts and textiles at Peaceable Kingdom. Spoken word, music and dance performances are often part of the evening at URI Feinstein Providence Campus Gallery. Take a tour or visit the galleries on your own. Have some wine and cheese, listen to music and take a good long look at some wonderful art.
Starting with nine determined galleries in 1996, Gallery Night Providence has grown into a regional visual arts extravaganza. Art buses travel the neighborhoods of Providence depositing people at galleries, museums and historic sites. Over 10,000 people each year enjoy exhibitions, demonstrations, lectures, live music and performances. The nearly 20-year old organization works to introduce and develop relationships between local creative communities, new and old. Take a guided tour or visit the galleries on your own. Experience the wonderful art Providence has to offer.
