(in)animate is a group exhibition with artists whose work repurposes organic materials. The fragility of insect wings, the durability of fossils and rocks, the strangeness of bones and feathers create conditions for art that can be dislocating, arresting, beautiful, and illuminating. In pondering what animates nature and what is missing in its absence, viewers may be invited to consider their own cycles of transience and transformation.
The exhibition will also invite visitors to engage in a creative process of their own in a separate space inspired by the Rhode Island School of Design’s Nature Lab, a collection of natural history artifacts.
Event: The evening of Saturday October 14 at 8pm we will host a film Screening of Keep the Change with Director Rachel Israel. The film is about a man and a woman who live in a group home for adults with autism who form a close bond.

Unique and fun! That describes the unusual glass sculptures and humorous, interactive kinetic contraptions created by artist Barney Stone. Experiments infused, cast and cold-worked glass use geometric shapes and architectural forms to play with the unique optical qualities of glass, while contraptions built from antique gadgets and everyday items come alive and react to your presence. Where else could you possibly see (and hear) a bunch of old boxes playing the drum solo from In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida!
