THE BACKSTORY

In late 2019, the artist members of DeBlois Gallery were finalizing the exhibit schedule for 2020. First up would be the season opener in March, which has traditionally been an open show with a theme. In a burst of inspiration, we chose the theme “Breaking Out”. It would prove to be eerily prophetic.
Thirty-eight area artists were inspired to contribute over 80 works in many media, not one of which made reference to a looming pandemic that would force the premature closing of the gallery with the stunning show still gracing its walls. What to do? This show is just too good to fade away unseen. So, creatives that we are, we heeded the words of JFK: “In a crisis, be aware of the danger--but recognize the opportunity.” And with that in mind, cheers to the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts for sharing the work of our state's artists! #RIArts
