Rhode Island’s been the only state to hold out on Victory Day since, um, 1975. The holiday commemorates the end of World War II and, you know, the dawn of the nuclear weapons era. Ugh. Anyway, since it’s a state holiday all the beaches are free, and if you’re down in South County you should head by Charlestown Gallery to see Mark Freedman’s latest paintings, ambigously bleak industrial landscapes painted in his trademark sooty grays and rusty oranges. (You may recognize Freedman’s large oil paintings if you’re downtown often: his great airplane painting is the lone redeeming quality of the eddy.)
