The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) has announced that new art exhibitions are on display at Rhode Island’s airports. At the Block Island Airport Gallery, works by Dan Lake of East Greenwich are on display through May 30, 2019. The Block Island Airport Gallery is a partnership between the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts and the Rhode Island Airport Corporation, promoting outstanding work by artists living and working in Rhode Island. The galleries present art to an ever-changing audience of local, national, and international travelers.  

Dan Lake is known for his impressionist oil paintings which often feature Rhode Island images.  Lake is additionally an accomplished portrait artist and has recently created works for the Support and Defend veterans’ exhibit and the traveling Beyond the Diagnosis exhibit to bring awareness of children with rare diseases to the medical community.  Lake finds inspiration in  the working boats of Rhode Island, a subject matter that uniquely blends his interest in state history and portraiture.

Currently residing in East Greenwich, Lake is an artist member of the Bristol Art Museum,  East Greenwich Art Club, Mystic Museum of Art, South County Art Association, Warwick Museum of Art and Wickford Art Association. 

Exhibitors for the Block Island Airport Gallery were selected by students from Block Island High School’s visual arts program.

The Block Island Airport Gallery is funded through Rhode Island’s Percent for Art law.
