Best Best Way To Become an Art Collector
Living in a state with one of the best art schools in the country gives every resident an excuse to become an art collector, particularly if you shop at any of the three Alumni Sales presented by the Rhode Island School of Design: the Spring Sale (May 6) and Fall Sale (October 7), both on Benefit Street, and the Holiday Sale (December 9) at the Rhode Island Convention Center. All three events feature thousands of items designed and created by RISD alumni from all over the country, from drawings, paintings, photographs, and sculpture to works of glass, ceramic, and fiber. Gifts such as whimsical home accessories, stunning jewelry pieces, and one-of-a-kind clothing items are also available. For more information, contact Alan Tracy or call 401 454-6618. To view a gallery of work by artists in the most recent (2005 holiday) sale, go to www.risd.edu/alumni_sale.cfm.
