Currently on display at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum is the exhibition titled “Locally Made” that features the work of 300 Providence based artists. The work includes paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, sculptures, film, and video. The exhibition started four months ago with a block party in July and included talks, concerts, film screenings, and performances.
Included in the exhibition is the work of painter Ida Schmulowitz who has documented the landscapes in and around the Fox Point section of Providence. Since 1983, she has been using a pedestrian bridge over the interstate as her vantage point to record the area in all seasons and times of day. A graduate of RISD, Schmulowitz's work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums throughout New England. Her large scale paintings have also earned her several awards and are part of the RISD Museum's permanent collection.
The RISD exhibition will end on Sunday November 3. Schmulowitz's work will be on exhibition at the Hoxie Gallery at the Westerly Public Library from December 4 to January 31, 2014.
Malcolm Grear Designers created Schmulowitz's portfolio website that showcases her work divided into six categories. The studio also designed the invitation for her upcoming exhibition.
