“Henry’s Kids” is group show of current work by former students of Enrico “Henry” Pinardi, who taught at Rhode Island College from 1967–1995 and had a significant impact on the work and lives of the more than 30 artists participating in the exhibit. The pieces on display – by artists from around the country and Berlin, Germany – will include paintings, sculptures, drawings and more.

“As a student of Henry’s, I can personally attest to the importance of Henry and his teaching on both my art and my life, and I’m not alone,” said Michele Aucoin, ArtProv Gallery co-owner. “The response to our call for artists for this show demonstrates what an important role Henry played in the creative drive of so many individuals. This show is both a celebration of Henry’s influence and his students’ successes, and I’m honored to host it.”
