“Duets” @ ArtProv Gallery
Feb 17 all-day
"Duets" @ ArtProv Gallery | Providence | Rhode Island | United States

ArtProv Gallery’s latest exhibit, “Duets,” which offers intimate insights into great artistic partnerships, runs through March 17, 2018.

Revealing the impact of love on the creative process, “Duets” features works by three couples who serve as each other’s muse: Mara Metcalf and Maria Napolitano, Shari Weschler Rubeck and Christian Rubeck, and Ana Flores and Gabriel Warren.

While the duos did not collaborate on any of the pieces in the show and their styles are, in some cases, remarkably different, each work reflects the creative influence of the unions. The passion, support, and mutual respect that define the couples are evident in the work on display, offering glimpses into their relationships.

“As a couple who are both artists and gallery owners, we thought it would be interesting to highlight powerful artistic unions based on mutual inspiration that has fed creativity and success,” said Michele Aucoin, ArtProv Gallery co-owner.

For the week of February 11, 2018, gallery hours are Tuesday – Friday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Saturday, 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.

“Undefined” @ ArtProv Gallery
Feb 17 all-day
"Undefined" @ ArtProv Gallery | Providence | Rhode Island | United States

ArtProv Gallery’s newest exhibit “Undefined” features the works of S.W. Dinge. Dinge produced the paintings for the show mostly on the floor, watering down the gouache and acrylic paints and pouring them onto an unprimed canvas. The borders of each color were allowed to run and seep to their desired shape and position with little or no assistance from my hand. By allowing the “randomness” of each pour to occur, he attempted to capture the fate and destiny of a single fleeting moment in time and space. Once dry, another pour was made in the same manner. While allowing the chance occurrences to happen, his primary focus then became deciding where each “random” event would occur in relation to the previous events.

By layering these moments, and adding some cosmetic boosts, he aimed to create harmonic constructions of time, color and movement that draw from the Dadaist’s practice of disassociation and the usage of chance.

The show runs through March 17, 2018. For the week of February 11, 2018, gallery hours are Tuesday – Friday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Saturday, 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.

To Win or Lose All: William S. Sims and the U.S. Navy in the First World War @ Naval War College Museum
Feb 17 @ 10:00 am – 4:30 pm
To Win or Lose All: William S. Sims and the U.S. Navy in the First World War @ Naval War College Museum | Newport | Rhode Island | United States

The Naval War College Museum presents a new exhibit, “To Win or Lose All: Williams S. Sims and the U.S. Navy in the First World War.” The exhibit occupies the museum’s gallery on the second floor.
To Win or Lose All explores the Navy’s role in securing victory for the Allies during the First World War. Under Admiral Sims’s leadership, American warships escorted convoys to France, laid mines in the North Sea, and hunted German submarines. On land, naval aviators flew scouting and bombing missions while Marines fought in the trenches east of Paris. While the sweeping naval campaigns of 1942-1945 may attract more scholarly attention, the foundation for their success was established twenty-five years earlier when the Navy operated for the first time as part of a coalition. Indeed, many officers who rose to prominence in the Second World War – Ernest J. King, Chester W. Nimitz, and Harold R. Stark, to name a few – gained valuable experience with combined operations during the first global conflict of the twentieth century. Curator Rob Doane hopes, “that this exhibit will encourage visitors to understand Admiral Sims and the sailors who served under him as real people who worked under difficult circumstances to meet the enormous challenges of wartime service.”

Uncle Vanya @ The Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre
Feb 17 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Uncle Vanya @ The Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre | Pawtucket | Rhode Island | United States

On an over-crowded country estate, a retired art professor, his second wife, and the daughter and brother-in- law from his first marriage navigate mid-life crises, unrequited love, a last-minute murder plot…and each other. Delusion and despair compete with humor and hope in Chekhov’s beloved story about what is and what might have been. The Gamm is delighted to bring Trinity Rep Artistic Director Curt Columbus’ splendid interpretation of this timeless tragicomedy to our audiences.

“Columbus’s excellent, deft translation retains the dark comedy and flavor of Chekhov, while making it easily accessible to modern audiences.…This Uncle Vanya is enormously entertaining.” Windy City Times

Into the Breeches! @ Trinity Rep
Feb 17 @ 7:30 pm

By George Brant

Directed by Tyler Dobrowsky

Providence, 1942: Oberon Play House’s director and leading men are off at war. Determined to press on, the director’s wife sets out to produce an all-female version of Shakespeare’s Henry V, assembling an increasingly unexpected team united in desire, if not actual theater experience. Together they deliver a delightful celebration of collaboration and persistence when the show must go on! A surprisingly modern and moving comedy about the singular way art and community reveal our boldest selves even in the darkest times.

Othello @ Trinity Rep
Feb 17 @ 7:30 pm
Othello @ Trinity Rep | Providence | Rhode Island | United States

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Whitney White
Featuring Jude Sandy as Othello, Rebecca Gibel as Desdemona, and Stephen Thorne as Iago
Friendship and betrayal, love and jealousy. Once Othello’s most trusted confidante, Iago’s envy-fueled passions unleash a betrayal with catastrophic results for Othello and his beloved bride Desdemona. Shakespeare’s profound tragedy is an enduring story of race, love, envy, and repentance. This stripped down retelling is the portrait of an unraveling mind amid a society engulfing and destroying its very best.
