Henry's kids show | heartspot 2020

April 2nd – May 20th 2020
Gallery Opening  Saturday, April 18th from 4-7 PM



This call for art is limited to former students of Enrico V. Pinardi, Professor Emeritus from Rhode Island College. Also referred to as “Henry” and “Rico”, his influence spanned decades and shaped the minds and lives of the many students lucky enough to have him as an instructor in their time at RIC.


Here at HeARTspot, we're keeping the tradition of a show honoring Henry alive, and hope to have many students of his from across the years participate.

Submission fees: $35 for up to 3 Entries. 100% of the entry proceeds will benefit a RIC Art student in memory of our beloved Michele Aucoin, owner of ArtProv Gallery where the last tribute show was held. (Details still being worked out – more to come soon)



All accepted work must be for sale.

All 2D forms of art or sculpture that can hang safely on a wall will be considered. Sculpture requiring a pedestal will also be allowed if no bigger than 18”x18” at the base, weighing no more than 50 lbs. Free standing sculpture up to 6’ will be considered.

All work must be securely wired for hanging and gallery ready. No sawtooth hangers or clips.

No submission fees are being retained by the gallery for this exhibition. We cannot therefore assume any shipping fees for accepted work from out of state. If you are applying for this show, you are doing so with the knowledge that you will incur all shipping fees to and from the gallery for accepted works.

By submitting this form you have agreed to the following terms and conditions:
The artist affirms that all works of art submitted are original. All artworks must be for sale. No NFS items will be accepted. Do not submit artwork that may not be available after acceptance. The artist determines the price agreed upon at drop-off and understands that HeARTspot LLC will take a 50% commission from the selling price. Works of art must remain on display for the length of the exhibition. The artist gives permission for work to be photographed and used for promotional purposes. All care will be taken to insure the safety and security of work, but the artist understands that the policy for HeARTspot LLC only covers costs of materials used to create work. The director will determine the sustainability/suitability of the art, framing/support structure and if determined unsafe/unstable, work will not be hung in the show despite acceptance and returned to the artist. Works of art picked up after deadline will accrue a $10/week fee starting the day after pick-up (not pro-rated) which must be rendered to HeARTspot LLC prior to having late work returned.
