JOURNEYS ONWARD - Honoring Veterans’ Experiences in Art and Words, an art exhibit of work by New England veterans is on exhibit at Gallery 175 in downtown Pawtucket, RI. The artwork is by veterans and their immediate families and is accompanied by commentary by the artists about how their military experience inspired their creative expressions.
Curated by Paul Murray, the mission of the exhibit is to increase awareness of military art created by U.S. Armed Forces members and their immediate families. Murray says, “We want to foster communication among those in the military and civilian communities that offers personal insight into the experiences of being in the military and being a support provider.”
Located in downtown Pawtucket in the Blackstone Valley Visitor Center at 175 Main Street, Gallery 175 is open to visitors daily from 10 am to 4 pm.
A reception for the artists will be held on September 16 from 2 to 3:30.
