These four pieces are great examples of how OneWay Gallery aims to carry a wide range of price points as well as mediums. These prints were created by RI resident Diana Brennan, an artist who has taken her love of photography and her knowledge of environmental science to create beautiful artwork that blends science and nature. These pieces are archival inkjet prints on plywerk and are available at OneWay Providence. Small prints are available at $150 each and larger prints are $250 each.

We are carrying this large scale work by artist Stephen Cook at OneWay in Providence. This piece exhibits more of the direction Cook has been taking, building large canvases and creating skillfully executed abstract pieces on them. The color palette for this piece grabs the attention of the viewer, with its rich orange and yellow hues and biting, cool turquoise tones. It is difficult to capture the texture of this interesting piece, but the canvas has been splashed with resin on some spots, creating glossy textures throughout.
This archival pigment print captures a Harris Hawk in motion in the Catskills in NY. Photographer Christian Harder has created a beautiful black and white image exhibiting a blurred subject, giving the work movement, as the hawk spreads its large wings. From across a room, the bold dark tones mixed with the greys makes this piece mistakable for a detailed painting. The print is approx. 46.5" x 65", framed and from an edition of 5.
This and other prints are available by Christian Harder at OneWay Providence, 231 Westminster St.
OneWay Providence is carrying two large scale charcoal drawings by artist Stephen Cook. A bit of a departure from his larger, more abstract canvas pieces, these drawings still exhibit the movement found in Cook's other work. Measuring at approximately 42.5" x 55" and professionally framed, these drawings would be a great addition to a collector of Cook's work or someone who appreciates the rich and earthy texture of charcoal.
Today, January 17th, will be your last chance to check out the Controlled Chaos group show presented by Owls to Athens & OneWay Gallery at our Providence location. The show is rich with different styles and appeals to a wide audience.
"CONTROLLED CHAOS" is a group art exhibition featuring a number of local artists working in Contemporary, Graffiti & Street Art Styles. The artists will be showing selected canvas & print works as well as creating several installation pieces & murals in the OneWay Providence.
The show's concept is representative of the creative mind, the artistic process, aesthetic aspects of our artists' work & also the state of many artists & friends lives at the moment.
The central theme throughout the show's iconic imagery is the duality of order & chaos in terms of the cyclical nature of life & creation. One hope for the show is that it may act as a 'call to arms' for local creatives to overcome their own personal storms & move forward with serenity, understanding that a creative mind's peace will ebb & flow with time... the very cycle that works to inspire & provides a source for an artist's passion.
Artist lineup: Joseph Skorupa Ryan McEntee (Untold) Melody Tuttle Keri Lyn King Sam Kashuk Ariana Moryl Stephen Cook
The exhibition opens on Thursday, January 12th and runs until January 17th. Opening reception is on Saturday, January 14th, 6-10pm OneWay Providence 231 Westminster St.
Thanks to the event's sponsors: E&O Tap, Thunderwing Jewels & Narragansett Beer
OneWay Providence is very excited to be carrying knuckle duster rings by Rhode Island artist and contemporary jewelry maker, Islay Taylor. These knuckle duster rings are gold plated bronze with bezel set, hand painted acrylic nails. According to Taylor, were inspired by the Kid Sister song, "Pro Nailz". Taylor strives to find inspiration in the every day, mundane object, which she has successfully done in these pieces by creating an unexpected appeal in using acrylic nails in an alternative form of wearability.
About the artist: Islay Taylor was born in Wakefield, Rhode Island. She is a contemporary art jeweler, who uses the body as a pedestal to showcase wearable sculptures. She received her MFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from the Rhode Island School of Design. Currently, she works as the Gallery Director at Hera Gallery, teaches Continuing Education at RISD, and maintains an active studio practice.

We currently have these ceramic tumblers created by artist Jen Gandee available in our Providence location. Each tumbler features artwork on two sides in a rich, cobalt blue.
About the artist:
Jen Gandee graduated with an M.F.A. in material studies from Syracuse University's School of Art and Design. She currently works as a professor of ceramic arts. She gathers her inspiration primarily from historical artwork and folk art traditions. These influences are then used to draw on the past while making it relevant to the present. Drawn to historical, symbolically-rich objects, her work is a mix of contemporary art and historical craft work.
