A Celebrity (Guide) in Our Midst

There’s an extra special reason to attend Gallery Night Providence tonight: our very own associate editor, Pippa Jack, will be leading the artisan, folk and craft gallery tour tonight. In fact, she’s keeping company with some pretty big names on the state scene who have been brought in regularly as "Celebrity Guides": the Philharmonic’s conductor Francisco Noya and sculptor Kenn Speiser, just to name a few. Pippa’s tour leaves at 6:30 from One Regency Plaza and will be stopping at Gallery Belleau, Copacetic and the Peaceable Kingdom. She’ll be talking about her favorite pieces in each shop and picking the owners’ brains about various works and how they go about selecting them. Plus — added bonus — there will be refreshments at each stop along the tour. If you were thinking about doing a Gallery Night sometime this summer, this is the night.
