Hello and Happy Springtime from Top Drawer Art At The Brass!
 
We'd like to announce a return to our Art Night season this May, with the special exhibition Top Drawers: Drawings by Toni Vollaro,
David Toste, and Roy Santos!  These three artists' work all involves carefully considered and fully-worked drawings depicting familiar landscapes and symbols, but in each artists' unique way, reminding us that while we all share the same world we all see our unique visions of it.  Their dedication to each work they create continues to inspire those around them, and we are thrilled to commence the Art Night season with these three.  Visit us to see the show throughout the month of May, and join us for our Reception on Art Night, Thursday, May 29th, 5 pm - 9 pm.  This Art Night at Top Drawer will be a dance party, and will feature local blues rock band Ain't No Sin!  Join us for a really fun night!     
 
We would also like to announce a return to the CONVERSATIONS Visiting Artist Workshop, funded generously in part by the Rhode Island State Council On The Arts!  CONVERSATIONS brings artists from the community into the studio to teach one-time Saturday workshops that are attended by Top Drawer's artists and open to the public for a suggested donation.  In the past these have ranged in variety from C.W. Roelle's wire-drawing workshop to Leif Goldberg and Erin Rosenthal's drawn-on film animation project, to Jess Gonacha's monoprinting workshop to Leigh Medeiros's screenwriting class.  This month will feature Pet Portraits: An Embroidery Workshop with William Schaff!  William is a local fixture, an artist who's dark and moody work is instantly familiar to fans of indie rock music, appearing on numerous album covers and even on CBS's This Morning.  He has a soft side as well, so join him and the artists of Top Drawer in creating your own little pet portrait, and spend a fun, educational afternoon, Saturday May 10, 12 pm - 3 pm.  Families welcome! 
 
Top Drawer will also be exhibiting a group show at Barrington Public Library during the month of May!  Top Drawer will be exhibiting large canvases by classic artists such as Katrina Cathcart, Wendy LeBeau, Bill Walker, and Katie Carcieri.  If you are in the beautiful town of Barrington during the month of May, stop by and see the show!
 
Keep on supporting your local artists!
