RWU’s Art Studios and student work at the Byfield and Reynolds Buildings at 220 and 235 High Street, Bristol will be featured in the Bristol-Warren Art Night September 29 from 530-8PM. Visual Arts Studies majors and ceramics students will exhibit their work as well as host an open house of the senior students. Students in RWU’s multidisciplinary program work in a broad and diverse range of media, which has been enhanced by the creation of a new Clay Studio at the Reynolds Building. The Clay Studio has been established with 16 wheels and hand building area for an equal number of students through a remarkable collaboration with Michael Roseberry of Roseberry Winn Studios, who provided much of the equipment for the studio, and has advised RWU in setting up the studio.
Bristol-Warren Art Night is a group of art-makers, advocates, and businesses owners collaborating to support our creative community, and empowering the cultural and economic vitality of Bristol and Warren, Rhode Island with free, affordable and open educational programs involving youth through senior years. RWU’s senior students are at the Byfield Building this semester in VARTS 491 Intermedia Studio with Program Director/Professor Michael Rich, and at the Reynolds Building in VARTS 233 Clay Studio with Professor Nermin Kura. Students enjoy the collaborative presence of artists who have studios at the Byfield Building who are part of the Byfield Art and Design Group (BADG), which includes several RWU full time and part time faculty.
