Providence may be the Creative Capital, but Jamestown aims to be in the center of the design map this month with an exciting and innovative new event.

The first annual Jamestown Arts Center (JAC) Design Expo features nearly 20 Rhode Island designers who are propelling the creative industry sector of our state’s economy.

The event, which opens on January 10,  will showcase the wide variety of design talent within Rhode Island including graphic, fashion, furniture, yacht and product design as well as architecture, interior design and interactive technology development. Additionally, teen designers from JAC's Youth Design Studio program will share the work they have created in the inaugural session of the center's design curriculum made possible by a grant from the van Beuren Charitable Foundation.

The show will run for 4 weeks with an Opening on January 10th from 5:30-8:30.  A number of designers will do short informational talks, presenting their work that evening. 

During the run of the show, the JAC expects to host several local schools for information exchanges.  The aim is for the Exposition to be educational within the community and the schools as well as being a great opportunity for local designers and designer firms to share what they do best.

The opening reception and gallery hours are free and open to the public. 

Gallery hours are Wednesdays through Saturdays 10am - 2pm through February 8.
