Richard Whitten is an artist and professor from Rhode Island College who creates gorgeously imagined architectural spaces and invented objects, painted realistically in the style of the Renaissance. On display will be large and small exquisitely executed paintings and the accompanying study models he creates for the paintings.“Ultimately my paintings are about intellectual play - an impetus for learning and exploration.” -Richard Whitten
