6:30 Collector’s Tour

Celebrity Guide Ida Schmulowitz, an artist who coordinated Gallery Night for over ten years, will lead this tour exploring artisans and designers working in Providence. We call it a Collector’s Tour because it’s a perfect place to learn about accessibly-priced artwork if you’re interested in starting, or adding to, a collection of your own. You’ll see a live glass-blowing demonstration at Gather Glass, locally designed and produced clay objects at J Schatz, recent imports from Myanmar at Peaceable Kingdom, gorgeous glassware at Gallery Belleau, and a selection of locally crafted jewelry work at Copacetic.
