The Steel Yard
On Saturday July 23rd, the SPACE Gallery will host the opening reception for the Steel Yard Summer Tour, an art exhibition showcasing the diverse talents of the Steel Yard’s artist community. Artwork on display will include sculpture, ceramics, paintings, site-specific installations, and performance.
The Steel Yard is an industrial arts center located in Providence, Rhode Island and offers arts and technical training programs designed to increase opportunities for cultural and artistic expression, career-oriented training, and small business incubation. Designed as a multipurpose community resource and industrial arts center the Steel Yard does not limit itself to a single notion of service, preferring to emphasize a sense of possibility over a single, narrow project.
The Steel Yard has recently begun working towards building relationships with other out of state spaces and organizations such as the SPACE Gallery in an effort to develop and grow a supportive network for the arts and artists that stretches across state lines and other not so literal borders.
Artists involved in the exhibit are: Alex Williams, Amanda Brown, Anna Shapiro, Brent Baggett, Charlie Cannon, Chris Kane, Daniel E. Campbell, Dave Cole, Elizabeth Buddington, Gillian Christy, Howard Sneider, Jennifer Liese, Jon Oles, Kik Williams, Korinna Winkes, Llewelynn O. Fletcher, Lu Heintz, Manya Kay Rubenstien, Meredith Younger, Neal Walsh, Stephanie Ewans, and Will Machin.
Before its opening in Portland ME, The Summer Tour was hosted in Providence RI by the Brown Creative Arts Council.
