10 Art Exhibits To Catch This April

Ten shows to check out this April, arranged by opening date.

A couple of other events to note: The Guerrilla Girls are lecturing at Brown on April 3. That sold out right away, but there’s a waitlist for (free) tickets. On April 12 Providence non-profit New Urban Arts is hosting its 22nd Annual Birthday Bash. (That’s a 21+ event.)

It’s also time for art and craft festivals. There’s an Art Walk in Hope Artiste Village on April 7, the inaugural Waterfire Art & Craft Festival happens on April 20 at the Waterfire Arts Center.
