CHARACTER APPEAL:

Portraits from the Newport Art Museum

 

October 6 – November 3, 2022

Opening Reception:  Thursday, October 6, 2022 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm

 

The Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery and Salve Regina University’s Department of Art and Art History are pleased to announce the opening of Character Appeal: Portraits from the Newport Art Museum, an exhibition of portraiture from the 18th to 21st centuries.

 

Character Appeal: Portraits from the Newport Art Museum examines likeness, identity and personality through the timeless subject of portraiture.  This exhibition presents seventeen artworks on loan from the Newport Art Museum, featuring a range of paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs.  Highlights include a Japanese woodblock print from 1796 and an oil portrait of the writer and suffragist Julia Ward Howe from the 1890s.  The exhibition features numerous artworks with Newport ties, including paintings by Christopher Benson and Freedley Durr, a wood engraving by John La Farge, and a pencil drawing by Howard Gardiner Cushing.  This collection of portraits offers images of youth and age, individuals and couples, the costumed and the contemplative, the everyday and the reimagined.

 

A generous partnership with the Newport Art Museum made this exhibition possible.  This curated selection of portraits was organized in collaboration with a community engaged learning course co-taught by Professors Ernest Jolicoeur and Anthony F. Mangieri of Salve Regina University’s Department of Art and Art History.

 

Character Appeal: Portraits from the Newport Art Museum runs from October 6 through November 3, 2022.  On Thursday, October 6 the university community and general public are invited to attend an opening reception.  The reception will run from 6:00 to 8:00 pm in the Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery.
