BRT Art Gallery

The BRT Art Gallery is an ongoing initiative to have the work of local visual artists combine with BRT's performing arts programming to enhance the audience's total experience and expose them to the many talented artists that live and work nearby. Exhibits generally change every 5-6 weeks between September and May. Artwork is viewable two hours before scheduled theater events and is often for sale.


Current Exhibit

Carolyn Letvin, Painter


Blackstone River Theatre's Art Gallery will host an exhibition and sale of paintings by Carolyn Letvin through November 22, viewable two hours before and during scheduled theatre events, in the upper and lower lobby of the Blackstone River Theatre, 549 Broad St., Cumberland, RI. The BRT Art Gallery is an ongoing initiative to have the work of local visual artists combine with BRT's performing arts programming to enhance the audience's total experience.

Carolyn Letvin is a resident of Milford, Massachusetts. She began her painting career in 1973 by attending a three-month painting intensive with the renowned Pennsylvania realist, Ted Fitzkee, at York Academy of Arts, York, Pennsylvania. After graduating valedictorian from New England School of Art & Design in 1977 with a Certificate of Graphic Design, she took a hiatus from painting to run a freelance graphic design business. She returned to painting in 1989 and has exhibited in the New England area since 1990. She is an accomplished landscape painter and also creates stylized feline and farm animal imagery. She works on-site, from photographs and memory.

Letvin has won many awards through the years, including the Top Award at the 18th Annual Faber Birren National Color Award Show and an Honorary Mention/Sakura Award from the United Pastelists of America/Oil Pastel Association. Her most recent award is a second place from the Blanche Ames National Juried Exhibition at Borderland Park in North Easton, Mass. Currently, her work can be seen at Lauren Clark Fine Art in Great Barrington, Mass., Gallery Wright Studio in Wilmington, Vermont, and Hudson Art & Framing in Hudson, Mass. She is on the board at the Concord Art Association and a board member for the Monotype Guild of New England.

Art Gallery Info

Art Gallery information: Contact Russell Gusetti

Blackstone River Theatre currently books visual artists for 5 or 6-week shows in the BRT upper and lower theatre lobbies from September through May (usually 18-34 pieces depending on size). We are now reviewing artwork for the Fall 2014 season and beyond; showings are usually arranged 4-8 months in advance. Artists must first contact Russell Gusetti to express interest and then will be asked to show a portfolio or e-mail current samples of work to be considered. All BRT exhibits are now coordinated and hung by Pat and George Sargent. Artwork or visual artists with a connection to the Blackstone River Valley or musical themes are preferred but not necessary. We are currently only displaying two-dimensional work as a rule.

Artwork CAN be sold by the artist with no commission fee taken by BRT. Our sole goal is to have the work of local visual artists combine with our performing arts programming to enhance our audience's total experience. The artist is SOLELY responsible for drop-off/pick-up of work, matting, framing, and taking down their show and for all costs and insurances associated with hanging their artwork in an exhibit space.

BRT will send out a press release with representative image 14 days before your show hangs so please email a biography/artist's statement/show info and a high-res image (200-300 dpi jpeg please at 5 x 7 inches) in a timely manner.
