Hello from Top Drawer Art At The Brass!

 

We'd like to thank everyone who attended this past Art Night and the Public Reception for Top Drawers Part Two: Drawings by Dominic Cabral, Steven Karnes, and Rick Titterton!  It was another great night, in what has turned out to be the most exciting Art Night season yet, with more folks than ever in attendance and more fantastic Outsider Art finding homes in the community, including the brand new UFO tee shirt designed by Rick Titterton.  Thanks to Steven and Riley Chabot for providing the music! 

 

Visit Top Drawer now to see our brand new July exhibition In The Neighborhood: Art by Kayla Buja, Theresa Medeiros and Stefanie Aubin!  These three artists share a common thread of depicting scenes from the neighborhood we're all familiar with: cheerful houses, trees and clouds, cats and fire trucks. The multimedia work in this exhibition ranges from Kayla Buja's painted cabinet doors, to Theresa Medeiros's cardboard robots, to Stefanie Aubin's embroidered ambulances, all designed to bring out a smile.  It's the perfect summer exhibition.  Join us for the Public Reception for In The Neighborhood at the next Art Night, Thursday July 31st, 5-9 pm!  Music once again will be provided by Steve N' Son, so wear your dancing shoes!

 

We're also thrilled to announce our current group exhibition at Temple Habonim in Barrington, featuring work by 28 of Top Drawer's finest artists!  This is a great current picture of the true breadth of Top Drawer's talent, with major new works in a pristine setting, hanging now through the end of August.  Artists with work in this new show are Wendy LeBeau, Katrina Cathcart, Brian Lamora, David Toste, Toni Vollaro, Brian Novasad, Livy Young, Kyle Komiega, Emily Sherwood, Paul Martland, Anthony Brum, Michael Pascale, Stefanie Aubin, Theresa Medeiros, Kayla Buja, Rick Titterton, Roy Santos, Dominic Cabral, Jane MacKinnon, Steven Green, Steven Karnes, Myles Payton, Katie Carcieri, Virginia Tavares, Nick Taylor, Emmet Estrada,  Bill Walker and Alan Aiello. Join us at the reception for this show on Sunday, August 17th, 1-3 pm -at the beautiful Temple Habonim, 165 New Meadow Rd., Barrington, RI. templehabonim.org

 

Last but not least we'd like to thank the East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP) Dental Center in Newport for letting us decorate their new offices with classic paintings by artists from Top Drawer!  Over 50 paintings are now hanging in this beautiful new space from 10 classic artists including Katrina Cathcart and Anthony Pontarelli!  The artwork will remain at the dental center, to be switched out with new work annually.  Those Top Drawer fans who live in Newport and need dental care, please visit the EBCAP Dental Center, 19 Broadway, Newport! 

 

Like we did with EBCAP Dental Center, Top Drawer would love to do with other businesses as well, either hanging work on loan or taking commissions for site specific work.  Own a bakery and need some paintings of bread on the wall, or a car repair shop in need of car paintings?  Anything goes, we will work with you.  Call us at 401-289-2894 or email Art Coordinator Seamus Hames at seamush@lifeincri.org. 

 

Until next time, see you at Top Drawer!
