join us at linger & learn — this thursday!

featuring art talk with Tracy Glover & special guest Alyn Carlson

 

Be sure to attend our 2nd of three linger & learn events this Thursday, 6/28 from 6pm – 8pm.  Last month’s event was a warm gathering marked with gallerist Candita Clayton sharing her insights on the benefits of collecting handmade objects.  Candita’s encouragement to engage and collaborate with an artist, instead of just buying from afar, is the topic of our July and August linger & learn events.

On Thursday evening, artist Tracy Glover will share how she engages with designers and homeowners to select from her artisan lighting fixtures and objects to complement a home.  (Her talk will begin at 6:45 pm, so be sure to time your arrival.  You won’t want to miss it.)

Tracy regularly welcomes clients and designers into her Pawtucket studio to understand her process, see work in progress and be inspired by the possibilities of her glass lighting and objects.  We’ll recreate a small version of Tracy’s studio at taste, enabling her to share with our guests an experience similar to visiting her in Pawtucket.  She’ll provide examples of her work and taste designers will chime in with case studies of interiors we’ve designed that incorporate Tracy’s work.

As a special bonus, artist Alyn Carlson will also contribute to the dialog and share how she and Tracy are collaborating on a special project.  Alyn’s work is in the gallery at taste this summer and her relationship with fellow artist Tracy is a wonderful view into the way artists work together in our small state of abundant talent.

And if that’s not enough to tempt you to join us, we’ll welcome back Vanessa Piche to the gallery at taste with new work and introduce artist Kate Wilson’s brilliant works in photography as well.

The red front door opens at 6pm and Tracy’s talk will start at 6:45 pm.  Join us for what I expect to be a lovely, inspirational evening.

(To tempt you even more, work from Tracy, Vanessa and Kate follows below.)

Only the best,

Kate Wilson joins us with her joy-filled works that are “lovingly dye-sublimated onto aluminum”.  We’re thrilled to have the energy and positivity of her work in our midst.

Tracy Glover’s pendants, light fixtures and glass objects are works of art we regularly incorporate into our client homes because of their timeless qualities.  Never overly trendy or kitschy, Tracy’s work brings the quality of craft to an interior for years of come.

snapshots from this week’s installation in charlestown, rhode island

It was delightful to watch the details come together this week as we did our first of two installations this month at our client’s new Charlestown (that’s Quonnie, for you Rhode Islander’s) beach house.  Custom details abound in this house and we were thrilled to work with clients who appreciate creativity and fine craftsmanship.

As a result, we poured it on in this sweet home architected by George Penniman and built by master craftsmen at Gardner Woodwrights.  More snapshots to follow throughout the summer as we add more layers of color, graphics and art that capture our client family’s spirited attitude and endless love of summer.

Only the best,
