She lives in a riparian zone, and is surrounded by streams, ponds and other waterways that are both her muse and mirage. A Pushcart Prize nominee, her written work has been published nationwide and has appeared in the Los Angeles Review of Books, Yankee Magazine, Rhode Island Monthly, and various literary journals.

Mary Casale Art Opening at Sprout @ The Gallery at Sprout CoWorking
Nov 15 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Mary Casale Art Opening at Sprout @ The Gallery at Sprout CoWorking | Warren | Rhode Island | United States

Rhode Island native, musician and music educator, Mary Casale, uses large squeegees to apply, layer, and scrape away acrylic paints from large and small-scale canvas and panel. Inspired by German born abstract painter Gerhard Richter, and using predominantly primary colors of red, yellow and blue, Casale creates pieces that are colorful, energetic, and provocative. The paintings invite us to engage and experience the beauty and energy of color, and the spectrum of human feelings as expressed within the context of the abstract; a world boundless, indefinite, continually uncertain.

Mary’s work will be on display at the Gallery at Sprout CoWorking in Warren during the month of November. An opening celebration is scheduled for Friday November 15 5:30-7:30 pm. For more information please email gallerymanager@sproutcoworking.com.

Junkyard by Imago Foundation for the Arts @ Imago Gallery
Nov 16 @ 4:00 pm
Junkyard by Imago Foundation for the Arts @ Imago Gallery | Warren | Rhode Island | United States

The public is invited to a free reception on Friday, Oct. 11, from 6–8 p.m.

Amy Sutherland will present recent figural and abstract ceramic forms. Aesthetically they are sculptures that are born from pots and thrown on a wheel. No longer utilitarian vessels, the forms are transformed under her hands, when instinct takes over the creative process. Sutherland works with clay because it is innately linked to creation. The same simple material can be used by a multitude of people, be fired, and become something beautiful or ugly. Sutherland believes as an artist she has an impulse to make, that what is made is how she communicates with the world.

Brittney Ciccone will present recent paintings that convey the many facets of the human experience, not only as an artist, but as a visual storyteller. Using cool tones, multidimensional artistic style, and abstract themes, Ciccone invites viewers to explore every brush stroke and inspire them to peer into a new reality. Ciccone earned a BFA from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and pursued a professional pastry degree while working at some iconic bakeries in Boston’s South End. Her fascination with art began at an early age and her propensity to create has evolved over time.

Other IMAGO artists who will participate in the exhibit include Eileen Siobhan Collins, Mary Dondero, Carl Keitner, Pascale Lord, Lindsay Mac, Yolanda Mazzoni, Linda Megathlin, Mercedes Nuñez, Anne Marie Rossi, Howard Rotblat-Walker, Lenny Rumpler, Harley Silva, Michael Somers, Amy Sutherland, Juji Watrous, Howard Windham, and Meredith Wolf.

The exhibit will be open to the public from Oct. 11 to Nov. 17.
