  • ART SALE: The Leonard Iannacone Collection “SPACES AND PLACES IN RHODE ISLAND”
    12:00 pm-4:00 pm
    October 1, 2022

    The East Providence Historical Society presents two sales of its Len Iannacone collection, a life’s worth of drawings, oils, and prints of his beloved RI and East Providence. Len was a 1st generation Italian American who grew up near Pierce Field, went to local schools and graduated from RISD. He played tennis at the Indoor Court, loved the East Providence High School Band and was loyal to his family’s roots. Some of you may remember his raccoon coats? Late in life, Len opened a gallery on Warren Avenue filling 5 rooms with his own works. In the early 1990s, Len could be found sketching at Hunt’s Mills and socializing with all of the volunteers, especially Ginny Berwick and Edna Anness. We have kept sketches of Hunt House (as he thought it might look like when we were finished) and the gristmill for our collection.

    We have tried to photograph these 65 works as clearly as possible but some are quite old and need to be seen in person. There are original drawings galore and prints for everybody. His oil of the Oyster House at Watchemoket was displayed at the Providence Art Club. Len’s oils are very unique and we only have 5.You will notice that some framing is highly ornate and decorative,  done by Len himself in most cases.

    Len’s estate was very generous to East Providence groups, including the Historical Society. These sales are a collaboration by the Historical Society, the East Providence Libraries and the East Providence Arts Council and proceeds will be shared. This is your chance to own an original work showing the places and spaces we live in seen through Len Ianacone’s artistry.

    Saturday, October 1: 12 – 4pm Weaver Library – Grove Ave – 02914

     A suggested price will be on each picture at the sale.

    A  grouping of Len’s East Providence artwork will be on display at City Hall from Sept 19 – 30.

  • History and Legends Through Song with Jon Waterman @ Weaver 6pm
    6:00 pm-7:00 pm
    October 3, 2022

    In his program, “History and Legends Through Song” singer, songwriter and program presenter Jon Waterman takes his audience on a tour of fascinating, sometimes legendary- sometimes little-known characters and happenings over nearly 5000 years of history. The tour includes stops in ancient Sumeria, 14th century Europe, the Old West and the trenches of World War One, and touches on the earliest known author, an ancient Hittite king, an epic medieval battle, a feared California bandit, the birth of the blues and many others- all in songs and stories.

    The program is the second in the series “Live Music Making History Live.” Jon has presented the first show of the series “A Journey Through the Roots of American Popular Music” in libraries and other venues around the country, both in person and virtually. The performances received enthusiastic reviews from those in attendance. Sarah Swifter, the Director of MAGMA in Gloucester, MA, where the program was presented in November of 2019 writes:

    “A Journey Through the Roots of American Popular Music” by Jon Waterman is a unique performance experience combining music history, storytelling, and original songs inspired by his research.  Waterman successfully transforms fascinating tales from history into an evening-length performance that feels personal, contemporary, and politically relevant. A must see for anyone interested in American history or American music!”

    This event is free and open to the public. Limited seating available, first come, first served.

    4) Basic matting equipment will be available.  If you have equipment of your own, please feel free to bring it along.

    6) Anyone who wishes to observe, and not cut a mat, is also welcome.
