This is the third panorama of Andrew Kusmin's work taken from near the center of the Narrows Gallery. The last two posts have dealt with the gallery and with the artwork of Andrew Kusmin. Perhaps this one should sketch one of the personalities behind the Narrows Gallery, interim Gallery Director Deb Charlebois. NB: the word "interim" was inserted at her request. Everyone wants her to do it permanently! She may be inclined to think of this particular job as only a stop on her professional journey but it's a job she's done extremely well. Deb has shows booked with a great series of artists nearly into 2010. Art is a tough sell in Fall River but she definitely has the Narrows Gallery on an upward trend in terms of visits by patrons, total sales dollars and quality of exhibit. She doesn't just book them either. She often spends hours hanging them, standing side by side with the artist until the entire exhibit feels just right. She's been in training for this role for decades now ... she's the mother of an artist. Deb wears many hats at the Narrows Center including Operations Manager and first paid staff person. This means that she's around to maintain consistent viewing hours for the gallery. Hours are Wednesday to Saturday, noon to 5. How many hats does Deb wear at the Narrows Center? Here are a few more: bookeeper, public relations, live music event ticketing and sales, fund raiser and membership coordinator and onsite project manager for a series of ambitious capital improvements that the Narrows has undertaken in the past year and finally .... marketing, which means among other things daily updates to the dynamic content at the Narrows website. www.ncfta.org If you haven't guessed yet ... your humble blogger has been involved in developing the Narrows Center as a volunteer and craftsman for many years. I think I can speak for all the volunteers and staff people at the Narrows when I express my gratitude mixed with a bit of awe for all that Deb Charlebois has accomplished here. One last note: she does it all while smiling.

Happy Journey Deb.

This panorama was taken in Narragansett Bay

This is an overview of Narragansett Bay

Narragansett Bay dominates the geography of the tiny state of Rhode Island, extending 25 miles northwards and inland from the Atlantic Ocean right into the heart of its major cities.  It is fed by the watersheds of 3 major rivers: the Blackstone, the Taunton and the Pawtuxet.  Narragansett Bay defines the region's culture, its history, sense of place and quality of life.  The cities of Providence, Newport, Fall River, Warwick and Newport all owe their start to the bay and the opportunities it provided for water power, commercial growth and transportation. 

Once badly polluted, the Narragansett Bay has made a tremendous comeback in the last 3 decades as communities all around the bay have revitalized their connection to the bay and taken steps to curb human impact.  Aerial Vr plans a series of panoramas intended to capture the area's unique natural beauty, both from its surface and from the air as well as the vitality and uniqueness of its communities.
