Mentors and Students
Spring Bull Gallery
Newport, Rhode Island
March 1 – 31, 2014
Opening reception Saturday, March 1, from 5 – 7 pm.
A mentor is defined as an advisor, master, guide, preceptor. A student is a person who studies, investigates or examines thoughtfully. Six award winning mentors: Gail Armstrong, Charlene Capazano, Jane Austin, Kendra Ferreira, Felicia Touhey, and Susan Shaw share their love of art and their skill of technique with their students. The students take this love and skill and make it their own. In this March exhibition students and mentors will display their work in clay, watercolor, colored pencil, acrylic, Chinese brush painting, and fiber side by side. Many of the students are accomplished artists in their own right.
The students featured are: Elizabeth Wagner, Christine Witkos, Maggie Ramey, Sherry Italiano, Suzann Andrews, Jane Berriman, Mary Jennings, Akiko Omori, Laurence Lavagne, Lara Pilla, Susan Wermuth, Norma Burnell, Carol Normandin, Adrienne Ranelli, Rayne Baer, Marisol Lagares, Libby Gilpatric, Cheery Hall, Maureen Cunningham, Patty MacLeish, Jan Goldstein, Elizabeth Sullivan, Brenda Langlais, Craig Masten, Marie Fontaine, Nina Ackmann, Sheila Turner, Diane Crane, Madeline Beaudry, Phil McAllister, Deborah Grant, Sharlie Sudduth, Ara Sadanientz, Michael Manni, and Jean Patiky.
