June Art Preview

June Art Preview

Ten shows to check out this June, arranged by opening date. As far as I know there aren’t any galleries closing their doors this month, which is a nice change. Also, this month is PVDFest – full disclosure, I’m marketing the festival this year – featuring four temporary public art projects in downtown Providence from May Babcock, Kristina Brown, Nick Carter & KYLE, and Sam White, as well as many, many other happenings from June 7-10.
