Welded sculpture on display
in CCRI Flanagan Campus Art Gallery
Sept. 12, 2012
The Community College of Rhode Island Flanagan Campus Art Gallery presents “ARTicles,” mixed media welded sculpture and other convoluted objects by Warwick resident Richard Boudreau, through Sept. 24.
A reception with the artist will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18, at the gallery, in Room 2420 on the first floor of the campus, located at 1762 Louisquisset Pike in Lincoln.
Boudreau said he learned to weld 40 years ago at a shipyard and began creating metal sculptures about 35 years ago. The sculptures vary in size and themes, many times created as a result of the kinds of scrap metal he acquires. “Many of my sculptures are created by metal that ordinarily would be discarded or thrown away into landfills so, indirectly, my sculptures are environmentally friendly,” he said.
Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursdays. Admission to the reception and exhibition are free, and the gallery is handicapped accessible. For information, email gallery director Tom Morrissey.
The welded steel piece “River Monster” is included in Richard Boudreau’s exhibition “ARTicles” at the CCRI Flanagan Campus Art Gallery through Sept. 24.
