Color Speaks at ArtProv Gallery
August 8 - September 22, 2018
“Colorist” Will be Open for Gallery Night Providence on August 16
The distinctive styles of three artists who express themselves through the use of intense color will provoke and engage during ArtProv Gallery’s newest show “Colorist.” Abstract, still life and landscape works by Sherie Harkins, Linnea Toney Leeming and Nick Paciorek will be featured during the show, which opens August 8 and closes September 22.
Sherie’s earliest recollections are all about color in nature. She is awed by the ripe and fleshy energy of fruit, an unexpected splendor that surrounds us every day. To her, fruit is sweetness and light, color and texture.

An abstract painter, Linnea’s vibrant and energetic paintings are emotionally-based, expressing what she sees and feels. Layering color, mediums and glazes, her compositions evolve of their own accord.
Nick’s landscapes of the canals, boats and small towns that define the south of France reflect his signature use of vibrant color, orchestrated in these works by the influence of the moon’s reflected light. “What makes this collection interesting is that each of the artists uses color uniquely and in different forms, yet they are all unified by their choice to speak with hues,” said Michele Aucoin, gallery co-owner.
