February Newport Gallery Night Kicks Off the 2018 Season

A new year means a new season of Newport Gallery Night events. The Newport Gallery Organization kicksCats by Bettie Sarantos off its 18th season with February Newport Gallery Night on Thursday, February 8, 2018 from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm at participating galleries, museums and cultural institutions. As the winter weather becomes milder, it’s the perfect time to experience the art around Newport.

Make a night of it by exploring the arts and visiting a selection of the participating galleries, museums, and cultural institutions.  This month marks the opening of several exciting exhibits including the following: Spring Bull Gallery commences their annual Fakes & Forgeries exhibit on Saturday February 3, 2018 with a reception from 5:00pm – 7:00pm. The much anticipated show features serious “copies” and humorous interpretations of well-known artwork, all submitted by local artists and created in a variety of forms and styles. The public will have a chance to observe or own an “almost masterpiece” without traveling far. A guest judge will select the “Best in Show” and gallery visitors will get to vote for their favorite piece throughout the month for a “People’s Choice Award.” The exhibit runs from February 3 to February 28, 2018.

Nearby, on Thames Street, Blink Gallery has collected over twenty fantastic pieces that were not selected for the Newport Annual Juried Show and will instead feature them in their Salon de Refusés exhibit. This exhibit highlights diversity through pieces that have a common thread. The gallery will be hung in traditional Salon style and showcases an eclectic mix of subjects, styles and sizes. The show opens on Saturday, February 3, 2018 with a reception from 7:00pm – 9:00pm, and will run until February 19th.

If you’re feeling cold after visiting all these exhibitions, step into one of the 6 restaurants that collaborate with Newport Gallery Organization by providing discounts and specials for Gallery Night visitors! Free parking is available for the night at the Gateway Visitors Center and uptown at the Newport Art Museum.
