In celebration of Latino history month, the URI Feinstein Providence Campus Arts & Culture Program and Providence Art Windows are presenting a mixed media solo exhibit by Tamara Diaz throughout the month of October. They will also host special Gallery Night reception from 5-9 PM on Thursday, October 16th.
A local Latina painter, muralist and social worker, Diaz uses expressive folk-art imagery to celebrate life, family, and her rich cultural heritage. Her portfolio—which started in 1998—includes colored pencil works, watercolors, paint on canvas paper, black ink on white paper drawings, photography, a marker series, and mixed media projects. With her background in art therapy as a tool for expression and healing, her colorful works demonstrate strong emotional content.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. See the displays inside the URI Feinstein Providence Campus 1st and 2nd floor lobby gallery, open from 9 AM to 9 PM, Mon-Thurs, and from 9 AM to 4 PM, Fri and Sat. The Art Windows displays can be viewed in the library windows at 80 Washington Street from outside the building. For more details, visit uri.edu or gallerynight.org.
