A new month is beginning and with it comes another Newport Gallery Night! This month Newport Gallery Night falls on March 10, 2016 from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at participating galleries, museums and cultural institutions. If you’re still feeling the winter blues don’t miss the chance to visit our participating galleries which are all featuring wonderful shows that are sure to hold you over until spring arrives.

This month Spring Bull Gallery is hosting “The Captured Image,” a juried exhibition featuring local photographers. The gallery wishes to celebrate this diverse medium and is showing photos printed in color or monochrome, on film and digital, close ups and wide angles, as well as images that are manipulated or simply captured in time. The opening reception is on Saturday, March 5th from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. and the show will be open through March 31, 2016. Spring Bull Gallery located at 55 Bellevue Avenue in Newport, Rhode Island is wheel chair accessible and free to the public.

Another exciting exhibit will be held at DeBlois Gallery, called “Face It: Faces, Portraits and Face the Issues.” This non-juried show is open for submissions and artists can interpret the theme through any media form. The exhibit kicks off with a reception on Saturday, March 5th from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. and is open to the public. All of the artwork is for sale and awards are given out at the reception. “Face It” closes on March 27, 2016. DeBlois Gallery is located at 134 Aquidneck Ave in Middletown, RI near First Beach, and has ample parking.

The Newport Art Museum is also open during Gallery Night for their monthly Art After Dark event. They encourage you to fully embrace March with their event title “In like a lion, out like a lamb.” This event includes wonderful collections of art, refreshments, and crafts for the whole family to enjoy.

Other galleries participating in Newport Gallery Night include C.L. Sherman’s Gallery at the Hotel Viking, Sheldon Fine Art, andWilliam Vareika Fine Arts (only open until 6:00 pm).

If looking at all of this wonderful art makes you hungry, step into one of the many restaurants that collaborate with Newport Gallery Organization by providing discounts and specials for Gallery Night visitors! Ask for a voucher at any of the galleries you visit. Free parking is available for the night at the Gateway Visitors Center and uptown at the Newport Art Museum.
