Artists will showcase residency portfolios

Eight artists will showcase their work during an exhibit from 6-8 p.m. Sept. 14 at the Jamestown Arts Center, 17 Valley St.

The participating artists will work on their creations during a weeklong residency led by Theresa Girard, a contemporary painter from Providence. This workshop, which begins Monday, allows Girard and her team to coach and challenge participants to take risks, producing change in their work.

The eight artists, including Jamestown’s Wooley Dutton, were selected through a jury process. It also includes artists from as far away as Chicago and Naples, Fla.

The free exhibition will include wine, live music from John O’Malley and food by the Matunuck Oyster Bar.
