New Urban Arts and The Drawing Room present the Work of Jeanne Risica

New Urban Arts is pleased to announce a special opening this upcoming Thursday September 17th, 2015 of the late Jeanne Risica’s artwork at The Drawing Room (479 Washington Street) between 7-9pm.

This is a unique thing for us to do a show offsite for someone who’s not a student or mentor here. Jeanne was an artist with the Dillon Gallery in SoHo from 1995 until her death. She was one of the original artists-in-residence at AS220 and worked for the Art Students League of New York. Jeanne graduated in 1983 from Marlboro College, where she studied with the painter Frank Stout. During this time, she traveled to Italy and began exhibiting paintings of landscapes, figures and portraits, as well as more abstract work.


All proceeds from the sale of Jeanne Risica’s artwork support the Jeanne Risica Fund for Art Education, founded in 2011 in her memory through the Rhode Island Foundation. The fund pays out a yearly dividend in support of New Urban Arts in Providence, RI.
