Grace and gravity are the two themes (and the title) of Deborah Baronas’ show at ArtProv, the gallery quietly tucked in the same building as Mirabar and the old Providence Phoenix offices. Baronas’ pastel swimmers and charcoal drawings of dancers are very well executed, but the real highlights are the sheer scrims made out of dyed mosquito netting, which hang freely in the center of one room. The dyed netting is also layered over certain other pieces, including the fun charcoal drawings of old-timey dancers Cyd Charisse, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, and Vera-Ellen.
Note: Gallery hours change weekly, so check the website for exact times
