HGP Hard at Work

Because the artwork in Half & Half was made by the HGP Committee Members, we decided to give Ben, our professional installer, a break and hang the show ourselves!

Ben came in one afternoon to give us a demo on proper gallery installation and then we went to work. It took all of us two days but in the end it was a great learning experience and next time we have to hang our own work it will be much easier.

And, to give Ben a better break, we invited his band to play at the closing reception! So come check out Ben Pilgrim playing live at Half&Half, Thursday November 20 from 7-10pm.

The November 3 Brown Daily Herald featured a review of BRYTE Exposures currently on view at Hillel Gallery Project.

"While the artists may not be professionals, it is easy to appreciate their work. Many photos portray scenes of the students' home lives. The subjects of the images range from siblings and friends hamming it up for the camera, to world-weary adults gazing straight-faced ahead. "

The full review is available here.

BRYTE Exposures: Photography by Members of Providence's Refugee Community and Brown Students

Brown Refugee Youth Tutoring and Enrichment (BRYTE) is a student-run organization that works with the International Institute of Rhode Island to engage recently resettled refugees in Providence in one on one tutoring. The students in this program are from Liberia, Haiti, Iraq, Somalia, Eritrea, Burundi, Rwanda, and Iran. The photographs in this exhibition were taken primarily by refugee-students in the BRYTE program. Each student involved was given his or her own camera and asked to record his/her visual experience in Providence. Many of the refugee students and their families involved in the exhibit will be at the opening. There will also be a dance performance by a refugee dance group in Providence led by a Rwandan student who participates in the program. Food and beverages will be provided. 

The reception is Sunday November 2 from 4-7PM. Come to meet some members of Providence's international community and to celebrate their work! The dance performance will begin at 4:30.


The Fall Juried Show Opening was a Success!

There was Live Music from Coors Light Band and Corpse Avalanche and Face Paint too!
