Artist Richard V. Simpson

Beach Scape with Wind Breaks by Richard V Simpson 1963

Please Join Us on Art Night, June 28th 6-9pm as The Historic Warren Armory hosts an exhibit to celebrate and honor the life and artwork of the late Richard V Simpson, Rhode Island native, historian, writer and artist who passed July 4, 2017.

Richard had returned to painting, which he’d begun in the late 1950’s, with a renewed sense of purpose in the last years of his life. He very much looked forward to sharing his work with the public again. Many were unaware of his deep love of art and knew him either as ‘the local historian’ or that he did an eclectic radio show through Roger Williams University, or maybe as the gentleman that was helping build the 4th of July parade float at the church. He was truly a man with many facets.

We hope you will come and take part in honoring Richard by celebrating the art he was rightfully so excited to share.

Extended hours this weekend at Historic Warren Armory:
Saturday 12-5pm
