Richard Whitten

March 6 - April 12, 2015

Opening Reception: March 6, 5-7pm

Richard Whitten is an artist and professor who creates gorgeously imagined architectural spaces and invented objects, painted realistically in the style of the Renaissance.

On display will be large and small exquisitely executed paintings and the accompanying study models he creates for the paintings.

“Ultimately my paintings are about intellectual play - an impetus for learning and exploration.”
-Richard Whitten

Richard Whitten earned a B.A. in Economics from Yale University and an MFA in Painting from the University of California at Davis where he studied with both Wayne Thiebaud and Robert Arneson. He is presently a Professor of Painting at Rhode Island College.

Experiments: recent paintings and sculptures by Richard Whitten and Play, the exhibition in the Main Galleries, will be on display until April 12, 2015.

Join us for the Artist Talk at 6:30 Friday, March 6th.

Curated by Rachel Moore.
