Founded in 2007, Imago Foundation for the Arts is a non-profit organization that encourages IMAGO artists and guest artists to explore their creativity by providing a supportive community and exhibition space. IFA also focuses on art programming for the public and collaborative projects with other local and regional organizations to promote the arts.
Our Mission: To inspire creativity and promote art-making that enriches our communities.
Imago Foundation for the Arts (IFA) is featuring artwork by IFA artist Betty Harrington and guest artists Deb Ehrens and Jesse Thompson. Called “BLACKGREYWHITE,” Harrington’s artwork includes photography, painting and mixed media pieces. Ehrens’ artwork consists of still life photographs of plant ephemera she placed in the ripples and small rapids of woodland streams, creating imagery that is lyrical and contemplative. Thompson is exhibiting an eight-foot-long panel drawing called “Fruit Sellers,” based on the intricate fruit and vegetable stand set up by W.C. Fruits & More along Westminster Street in Providence, RI, just outside Joe’s Meat Market.
IFA is featuring a regional juried exhibit for emerging artists 30 and under July 26 – September 2.
Selected artwork by 18 young artists is on display along with artwork by Imago artist members: Eileen Siobhan Collins, Mary Dondero, Philip Gruppuso, Betty Harrington, Carl Keitner, Pascale Lord, Yolanda Mazzoni, Linda Megathlin, Rina Naik, Kol Naylor, Mercedes Nuñez, Maria Rodriguez, Anne Marie Rossi, Lenny Rumpler, Howard Rotblat-Walker and Howard Windham.
