Heart Gallery

The Rhode Island Heart Gallery
The Rhode Island Heart Gallery is a traveling exhibit of professional portraits of children currently in state care waiting and hoping for forever families. The children featured in this Heart Gallery are only a small number of the children in foster care in Rhode Island who are in need of permanent families.

Since 2005, the Heart Gallery has helped to raise awareness of the need for loving families for the hundreds of children in state care. Adoption Rhode Island is pleased to sponsor this powerful exhibit. It is our hope that as it travels throughout the state, the smiling faces of these children will touch the hearts of people who can help.

Our 14th Annual 2018-2019 Rhode Island Heart Gallery is on display throughout the month of October at the Gamm Theater, in Warwick. To view the 14th Annual Heart Gallery booklet click the image to the right.

We cannot thank Printmakers, Inc. in Pawtucket enough for years of donating time and talent to produce this amazing gallery! With contributions from Central Paper in Pawtucket – donator of Heart Gallery book paper, Lexjet – donator of canvas media and ML Supplies for the gallery stretcher bars, it is our collective hope that these beautiful portraits will touch the heart of someone who will be the difference in a child’s future!

And of course, thank you to our photographers: LisaBushee@verizon.net, Gene Hutnak Photography, Joni’s Photography (Joan Corey), Oggi Photo/Julie Brigidi, Diane Miller Photography, Options Photography, Sabrina Scolari Photography, and

Introducing our 3D Virtual RI Heart Gallery

We are so grateful to friends, Doug Fingliss and Laura Vaillancourt of Innovative Visuals, who came to us again this year, offering to donate their time, talent and technology to create an immersive 3D Virtual Heart Gallery for us, allowing the public to virtually walk through the gallery, and bring each beautiful portrait right into their homes and into their hearts! Innovative Visuals uses this emerging technology typically in the real estate and construction arena, so their concept of applying it in the world of permanency and adoption recruitment is truly cutting-edge! Please take a minute to learn more about Innovative Visuals, LLC and their capabilities on our website ‎here.

We are thrilled to be able to present this ground breaking 3D Virtual Heart Gallery. Using your mouse or touch screen you will be able to ‘walk’ from portrait to portrait, learn a little about each child – and coming soon – actually hear from them – and more! Thank you so much, Doug and Laura for this innovative gift!
