The cre­ative process on dis­play

Woonsocket Call - - Entertainment -

Guided by artist May Bab­cock, the se­niors at Saint An­toine Res­i­dence in North Smithfield used pa­per pulp made from lo­cal plants and cloth rags to cre­ate pulp paint­ings. Ap­ply­ing var­i­ous col­ored pulps and ap­ply­ing them to a screen, the im­ages were then trans­ferred to a dry­ing rack. Once dried, they were bound into hand­made books, along with recorded mem­o­ries of the se­nior artists’ fa­vorite out­door places. To­gether, the im­ages and mem­o­ries will be ex­hib­ited in pub­lic spa­ces through­out Rhode Is­land. Se­nior artists from 22 of CareLink’s 32 mem­bers par­tic­i­pated. Pic­tured, clock­wise from from top, Saint An­toine res­i­dent Lucille Cou­ture gets to work on her im­age; res­i­dents and par­tic­i­pants Wilma Smith, left, and Tina Brown­ing, cen­ter, get some project in­struc­tions from artist’s as­sis­tant Irene Wei, right; CareLink in­tern Heath Carmichael looks on as Smith and Brown­ing fol­low Wei’s in­struc­tions; and fi­nally, Cou­ture’s pulp paint­ing is flipped up­side down and trans­ferred to a sheet to dry.
