August 1 to the 31st, 2012 - Bert Gallery Exhibition

This exhibit concentrates on unfolding the story of the Rhode Island painter Arthur Douglas and how he informs us about the Rhode Island art scene in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Bert Gallery specializes in exhibitions of 19th century Rhode Island artists. Keeping to the mission of researching, showcasing and preserving paintings from the region, Catherine Bert, director and owner, has organized over fifty exhibits dedicated to trends and styles embraced by New England artists. The Douglas shows included a open panel discussion, a month long gallery exhibition and a web site exhibition with a slide show.

May 15 - June 2, 2011 - Rhode Island Watercolor Society

Founded in 1896, the Rhode Island Watercolor Society (RIWS) is one of the oldest watercolor organizations in America. This show presented Douglas' watercolors, oils, oil pastels and some unfinished pencil sketches. There was a lot of positive feedback from both the members of RIWS and the general public. Special thanks to the gallery director, Kris Occhino, vice-president, Jackie Canna, and treasurer, Frank Robertson, for all of their help.



July 25-31 2010 - Wannamoisett Country Club Exhibit

This art exhibit also acted as a fund raiser for the junior golf team at Wannamoisett. Prints of Douglas' water colors were sold to benefit the team. The members of the club enjoyed seeing the seascapes, landscapes and portraits.




June 15 - 20, 2010 -West Warwick Library Showing

Douglas spent most of his life in this once rural area of Rhode Island. This showing displayed paintings of the local landscapes as they were in the early 1900s. We would like to thank the West Warwick historical society and the West Warwick Library director, Frances Farrell-Bergeron, and her assistant Susan Laporte for making this 10 day showing such a success.
