The Heart Gallery
Our 11th Annual Heart Gallery, featuring 18 beautiful portraits, photographed compliments of several local professional photographers and pristinely produced courtesy of Printmakers, Inc. is on tour throughout Rhode Island. Our new 12th Heart Gallery can be viewed throughout the month of February at The 400, 400 Smith St., Providence. The public is especially invited to come by Thursday, February 16th from 5-7pm when The 400 is hosting a special Open House. Representatives from Adoption RI will be on hand to answer any questions about adoption from foster care, the support programs we offer children and families impacted by adoption and foster care, services we can provide for older youth, and other ways the community can get involved toward our mission.
If your business or organization is interested in hosting the Heart Gallery, please contact Bridget Gieseke at email@example.com.
