Warmed by Sunshine, Lit by Starlight
Art Ballelli & Roy St. Christopher Rossow
Oct 9, 2019 – March 22, 2020
Opening Reception: AHA! Thurs, Oct 10, 6 8 PM

Warmed by Sunshine, Lit by Starlight showcases new paintings of timeless places. Artists Art Ballelli and Roy St. Christopher Rossow create representations of scenes familiar to the South Coast region that is activated by light. A moment of late afternoon sunlight cutting through dark clouds, the bright arc of a distant welding torch shimmering across black water, century-old houses warmed by sunshine, and a historic waterfront lit by starlight. Each moment captured by the artists highlights the historical relevance and beauty of Westerly, RI and New Bedford, MA.

Superflat New Bedford Presents
9/12/2019 – 1/26/2020

Superflat NB & the New Bedford Housing Authority invited Cedric “Vise1” Douglas, an internationally recognized street artist from Boston, to conduct a series of workshops with the families and youth of Ben Rose Gardens. Together, they explored themes important to the community using the history and techniques of street art. The result? A number of inspired art-making projects and a two-story-high mural that furthers the mission of Superflat NB: to flatten barriers to the arts by directly engaging New Bedford’s youth, artists, and its residents while beautifying New Bedford.
