NetWorks 2013: Twelve Artists You Should Get to Know

In 2008, a unique Rhode Island arts project launched through collaboration between Joseph Chazan, M.D. and Umberto Crenca, Artistic Director of AS220. "NetWorks" was created to document, celebrate, and foster the richly creative and diverse Rhode Island artistic community.

Each year since its launch, the project has created an archive of video and photographic profiles that are enriched by museum and gallery exhibits, catalogs, and panel discussions.

WSBE Rhode Island PBS is proud to present this year's video profiles of the artists as part of the station's commitment to making works of local artists more accessible to a wider community audience. Parts 1 and 2, filmed by Richard Goulis, air Sundays, November 17 and 24 at 6 p.m., as part of Rhode Island Stories.

The artists profiled in NetWorks 2013 are:

Jesse Burke - Photography
Michael Glancy - Glass
Tracy Mahaffey - Stone Carver
Paula Martiesian - Oil Painter
Stephen Metcalf - Sculptor
Morris Nathanson - Fine Artist
