Dash Around Town: Gallery Z Gets A New Face



The Z’s Fill Your Artistic Needs and Desires

If you are around town, you already know that Berge Ara Zobian opened STUDIO Z down in the Eagle Street area of Providence, at a very, very cool location and with a very, very cool layout. And that’s the official rebirth of his exhibition activities. While the Gallery Z space on Atwells that you already know and love is open and ongoing with oodles of fantastic fresh work and collections, all the openings will be held at the new location.


Gallery assistant, the lovely and capable Melissa Thyden, will still be on hand at both places and a new face, Linda Kamajian, and her jewelry line “Dreamy Venice” is in the collection room. She joined the Gallery Z team as a gallery associate and offers wonderful things from my favorite city in the world, Venezia. 

My recent visit there playing catch-up was fruitful and eye-filling. On sale ( I love them), Melissa has a collection of ultra hip hand painted shoes along with an enormously colorful exhibition installed and ready for viewing. And Linda has everything delicate you could lust for from Venice. Run out the door right now and see this work.

The name Gabriel Capuano is well known to us local beatniks who were the second wave of creative in Providence. Gabrielle’s paintings are at the Eagle Street location, and he remains one of my favorite Providence people with a brush in hand … even long after his passing. I invite you to see and compare both “Z’ locations for all your art needs and desires. “See Venice and die?” What? You don’t need to. Just go see “Z” and live it up.
