Gallery featuring Gerry Perrino’s “Graphic Work”
The Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery has announced the opening of “Gerry Perrino: Graphic Work,” which tracks the creative development of the still life painter’s recent sabbatical project in drawing and printmaking.
Perrino’s imagery springs largely from his personal collection of toys and small figurines. In this show, an assortment of pop culture icons, four-legged animals and identifiable characters from American history come together in a humorous and narrative-rich medley. The exhibition consists of nearly 50 framed works on paper. While most are black-and-white ink drawings and relief prints, several hand-colored variations are also included.
An associate professor in the Department of Art and Art History, Perrino received his M.F.A. from Syracuse University and his B.A. from Rhode Island College.
“Gerry Perrino: Graphic Work” will be on display through Thursday, Dec. 17. An opening reception will be held from 5-8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12, with an artist talk at 6 p.m. in the DiStefano Lecture Hall. The Salve Regina community and the general public are all welcome.
The gallery’s exhibits are open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays and noon to 4 p.m. The gallery is closed on Mondays. For more information, call (401) 341-2981 or email email@example.com.
