March Heritage

 
 

Cover Sunsplash” oil on canvas, by Mimo Gordon Riley. The artist moved to Providence a decade ago, with the intent to “paint Fox Point,” the area where she and her husband bought a house. She was intrigued with the pastel colors and the maritime history of the neighborhood. She has had solo shows of her paintings at Gallery Agniel and the Space at Alice in Providence and now is represented by Didi Suydam Contemporary in Newport. She works in a studio in downtown Pawtucket. mimogr@cox.net
