New art at the B.I. airport

Fri, 08/10/2018 - 10:15am

The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts has announced that works by artist Kate Wilson will be on exhibit through Sept. 18, 2018 at the Block Island Airport Gallery. The Block Island Airport Gallery presents the work of contemporary Rhode Island artists in quarterly exhibitions.

Wilson uses graphic design to transform reality by elevating ordinary objects into fine art on a grand scale. Each artwork has a love note or positive word, hidden within, to ignite wonder and curiosity.

Graduating from Skidmore with a B.S. in education and liberal studies, with a studio art concentration, Wilson taught elementary school and studio art for over 20 years. She furthered her studies in the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts graphic design program, and taught herself the art and craft of photography. She ran her own graphic design and photography business before devoting herself full-time to fine art. Exhibiting widely throughout the New England region, Kate is represented by Candita Clayton Gallery in Pawtucket and Atelier Newport.  

Exhibitors for the Block Island Airport Gallery were selected by juror Lisa Robb, the Block Island’s School’s arts educator.
