The BankRI Galleries present: “Art in Transition – The Culture of Graffiti in Providence: Photographs by Linda Handel," March 6 - April 30, 2015
Please join us and meet the artist during the Gallery Night stroll on Thurs. April 16, 2015 from 5:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Downtown Providence at BankRI Turks Head Gallery (cross streets Westminster and Weybosset).
Rhode Island Gallery Night Blog writes "The photographs themselves are images of a city in transition. Scenes of graffiti covered buildings, often mid demolition, convey an odd sense of power in decay. You are a voyeur watching history being dismantled. The building, the graffiti on the building, and the history of the building are vanishing before your eyes. And yet, this is a city, progressing into the future, building on top of the past. Handel’s photographs convey this sense of transition."
