Awesomeness at AS220
“New Obstructions” opens at the Mercantile Block, 135 Washington St., Providence, from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday.
AS220 recently acquired the Mercantile Block building, next to its Dreyfus Building, and plans to soon renovate and convert it into studios, rehearsal rooms, offices, and live-work space for artists. But before work gets underway they’ve decided to fill it with art installations. Right on! The roster of artists includes Jacob Berendes, Eamon Brown, Kristina Brown, Jim Frain, Richard Goulis, Natalja Kent, Scott Lapham, Jon Laustsen, Jeremy Radtke, Nicole Reinert, Mike Taylor and Neal Walsh.
The show is open Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m. and by appointment until the closing reception on Oct. 17.
