One of the best places to see new works of art by the region's best artists. Also, not to miss if PAC's private collection of art from members long time ago and founders of one of the oldest art clubs in America.

This bastion of Providence Art has a long history. You can see many examples of that in the unique gallery spaces, but there are also shows of current work by members. Work by Nancy Gaucher Thomas and Mimo Gordon Riley are currently on display.

I always admired the exteriors of the beautifully preserved buildings on Thomas Street in Providence. I never knew they were property of the Providence Art Club and open to the public to view exhibits. It's a treasure!
