Wickford Art partners with edible Rhody for FoodWorks


On Sept. 10, the Wickford Art Association (WAA) launches an exhibit that celebrates Rhode Island’s diverse, vibrant and resilient food economy through FoodWorks.

Last winter, with assistance from edible Rhody editor Eugenie Trevor, food-industry partners were identified who then welcomed a team of photographers from Wickford Art on-site. Through an application process, 16 photographers were selected by John Robson (johnrobson.photography), a freelance photographer from Colorado who often works with edible Communities. Each photographer has captured dynamic photography at one or two sites across the region and will display a sampling of their work in the “FoodWorks” exhibit opening Friday, Sept. 10, at the WAA Gallery in North Kingstown. Robson will select works for cash prizes from the offerings and all work will be available for sale.

edible Rhody will provide additional coverage all summer long on both its print and digital platforms (ediblerhody.ediblecommunities.com/shop/foodworks-celebrates-rhode-island-s-resilient-food-producers).

Wickford Art will also launch a virtual gallery for full viewing access to the community. The full collection can be seen in-gallery Sept. 10 through Oct. 3 with hours of Wednesday to Saturday, noon to 4 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 3 p.m.

More information is always available through WAA’s social media; find us @wickfordartassociation (Facebook) and @wickfordart (Instagram & Twitter).

Parking is free along the green at Cold Spring, Beach Street for all visitors to the Wickford Art Association.

Wickford Art will hold a special one-day Food & Art Market on Sunday, Sept. 19, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the Green at North Kingstown Town Beach with a wide variety of food vendors from across the state and art for viewing & sale in the WAA Garden. The rain date is Sunday, Sept. 26.
