On the third Thursday of the month (March – November), Gallery Night Providence (GNP) curates multiple timed trolley tours organized with partner galleries. All are welcome to explore the galleries on their own too, GNP Galleries, or see what GNP has put together for monthly suggestions to ‘Make Your Own Tour‘.

This month, Thursday, May 16, one of Gallery Night Providence’s trolley tours will leave the WFAC at 6:30 p.m. and visit The Gallery at Sprout CoWorking, the URI at RIC Alex and Ani Hall, the Bannister Gallery at Rhode Island College, and then return to the WaterFire Arts Center. Free parking is available in the WaterFire Arts Center parking lot and attached ALCO parking lots. Reserve a spot for this 6:30 p.m. tour leaving from the WFAC.

At the WaterFire Arts Center there are two exhibitions open, both downstairs in the gallery and upstairs in the WaterFire offices. Sculpting Silent Narratives: My Love Letters by Janice Lardey is on view this month in the gallery. This exhibition is a poignant exploration into the untold stories and a tribute to the resilience of generations of women in Lardey’s family exploring themes of identity, societal expectations and belonging. Learn more about the exhibition, here: Also on view and for sale are works displayed upstairs in the new WaterFire Office Gallery, thanks to collector and supporter, Joseph A. Chazan, M. D., 100% of the proceeds of any sale he will donate to WaterFire Providence.
