...More details on their way!


Date/Time Coming Soon!

From time to time, WAA uses the online platform CaFE for exhibit submission.  To prepare our community and membership for use of CaFE, we will provide a series of tutorial workshops.  Hundreds of art organizations across the country use platforms like CaFE for the jury process. At WAA, we want to assist local artists in becoming more comfortable with this platform! Workshops will be free. You can observe, or bring your images and laptop to follow-along in live-time.

Topics to be covered:

  • Uploading and managing image files
  • Creating and managing your files and folders
  • Re-sizing and uploading images to your CAFÉ library
  • Introduction to CaFÉ online art submission



By appointment only, call 401-294-6840

Michael Masi will professionally photograph your artwork, post process the file(s) and email you the file.
Use the digital file(s) to update your website, promote your work on social media, build your portfolio, archive your work or prepare entries for online exhibits, including CAFÉ.
Please contact the gallery to make your appointment.
Then bring your artwork to the gallery at your designated day/time.

"Cutting Corners" Framing Awareness Workshop

Date/Time Coming Soon!  Suggested $10 donation

Let’s discuss the "fine art" of picture framing: how to make your art worthy of exhibit or better yet, award winning!!  Preparing your artwork, including the matt, frame selection and attention to the back, can make all the difference in being accepted to juried exhibits and galleries. It can also sell your artwork faster if done properly and tastefully.  Drawings, etchings, paintings, pastels, photography, mixed media, even 3D art with frames will be covered. Signing the art, matting, mounting, glazing, wiring and labeling will be discussed. See good and bad examples, bring your questions!

Open to the public, free parking.  Instructor Trish Hurley has been a professional picture framer and has managed frame shops and galleries for several years from Newbury Street, Boston to Cape Cod to Rhode Island.
