On August 06, 2019, our dear friend and colleague Michele Aucoin passed away.

MICHELE, 57, of Pawtucket, passed away at home surrounded by her loving family and friends on Tuesday, August 6, 2019. She was the beloved wife of Nick Paciorek. Born in Providence, she was a daughter of the late Emile L. and Anna S. (Padula) Aucoin.

This is a donation in memory of Michele Aucoin-Paciorek. Early in 2018 she and Nick visited my home and studio and graciously offered me the chance to show my artwork at ArtProv Gallery that summer. I always enjoyed attending the openings at ArtProv and marveled at Michele’s witty curation and expert display of diverse pieces of art. Her gallery was a great spot to talk with other artists and art lovers and I was especially thrilled to have the exposure on Gallery Night. I will certainly miss her, along with so many other local artists who benefited from her advice and encouragement.
