Art Night Bristol Warren celebrates the arts by featuring monthly Gallery & Open Studio Tours from April through November.  Visitors can meet featured artists in their studios or at partner galleries/ businesses for an inside peek at how their work is created.  A free trolley service runs from 5-8 pm between the towns of Bristol and Warren, with stops at the participating locations.  Follow this link to learn more.


We are thrilled to be participating in Art Night Bristol Warren again and so pleased to be hosting Fine Artist Kelley Carey MacDonald for the 2013 inaugural event.

Kelley Carey MacDonald

Kelley has been painting for over 20 years.  While an Art History Major at Wheaton College, Kelley discovered the joy of making art.  She continued her education in different mediums throughout her life.  Studying with the foremost painters she found that each artist had something unique to offer, and led her to a rich and varied toolbox from which she could construct work in her own voice.

Some of her teachers include: Charles Sovek, Valerie Vitali, Ken Auster, Ned Mueller, Karin Jurick, Carol Marine, John Kilroy, as well as others.

Kelley paints for the joy of it, and because she could not stand to stay away from the easel! She maintains a must-read Daily Painting Blog where she posts a small format painting in oil or acrylic between 4-6 times per week.  Mainly she enjoys painting sweets, martini’s and animals in a contemporary realist style.

Kelley paints on location (plein air), in fabulous places like Mexico, Holland, Canada, Maine, Cape Cod and Sedona and takes workshops with the most accomplished artists in the USA.  She hosts workshops with nationally known artists at her studio in Warren, RI, and teaches her own painting workshops as well.

Please join us at Sea Rose Cottage (21 Constitution Street, Bristol) on this very special night as we joyfully welcome the talented Artist (and Blogger!) Kelley Carey MacDonald.
