ArtProv Gallery will hold a reception during Gallery Night Providence on September 20 from 5 to 9 p.m. for its newest show "Colorist." The exhibit features the distinctive styles of three artists who express themselves through the use of intense color: Linnea Toney Leeming, Sherie Harkins and Nick Paciorek:

• Linnea Toney Leeming: An abstract painter, Linnea’s vibrant and energetic paintings are emotionally-based, expressing what she sees and feels. Layering color, mediums and glazes, her compositions evolve of their own accord.

• Sherie Harkins: Sherie’s earliest recollections are all about color in nature. She is awed by the ripe and fleshy energy of fruit, an unexpected splendor that surrounds us every day. To her, fruit is sweetness and light, color and texture.

• Nick Paciorek: Nick’s landscapes of the canals, boats and small towns that define the south of France reflect his signature use of vibrant color, orchestrated in these works by the influence of the moon’s reflected light.

“What makes this collection interesting is that each of the artists uses color uniquely and in different forms, yet they are all unified by their choice to speak with hues,” said Michele Aucoin, gallery co-owner.

The show runs through September 22. For more information, visit www.artprovgallery.com, call 401-641-5182 or email info@artprovidence.com. Check the website for weekly hours and events.
