Beautiful Weather

With all of this BEAUTIFUL almost Summer like weather we are having here in Rhode Island you should take advantage of enjoying some al fresco dining.


Al Fresco dining is eating outside (from the Italian words “al fresco” = outside, at a fresh temperature).[1] In temperate climates it is especially popular in the summer months when temperatures and weather are most favorable.[2] It is a style of dining that is casual and often party-like in its atmosphere.[2] In order to promote and accommodate the pedestrian activity and vibrancy associated with Al Fresco dining, communities have passed ordinances permitting it, including the service of food and beverages to customers at sidewalk tables until late at night.[3]

We offer valet at all of these locations, please call location for valet times and availability, and we encourage you to get out-support local business-get some Vitamin D-or enjoy local night life!!

An Evening with Robert Bissell

Friday, April 13, 6:00 – 9:00PM

Meet and Greet Reception, his only Northeast appearance.

Bissell’s paintings explore the idea that animals have metaphysical importance to our own spiritual well-being. Lured into a realm devoid of humans, the animal characters require we consider our own condition and place in nature. While whimsical at first glance, there is underlying tension and precariousness beneath the images. Disarmed, we objectively consider ourselves without familiar references.

“His animal work is full of charged meaning, lore and touched by surrealism”, said Suzanne Bellah, Director Carnegie Art Museum. Influenced by the surreal legacy of Magritte, he mixes scales and uses gigantism with a variety of textures and subtle color palettes. These paintings are reflections on the environment, life, death, renewal and stages of transition. Departing from the safety of family, and making our way in the world. Conjuring up something simultaneously real and unreal, the work appeals to the intellectual child in all of us.


Bissell’s landscapes also offer no familiar frame of reference. Free of forced aesthetic or emotional excess we are forced to consider the world as it is not an idealized vision. Devoid of sentimental narrative, anecdote or central focus, the viewer can wander freely into the scene and consider it according to their own sensibility. These are not romantic landscapes in the traditional sense. Rather they allow an experience of the sublime, not from what may be, but from what is.


Bissell grew up in Somerset, England, and retains in his love of art, a love of rural life, Celtic legends and panoramic landscapes. His keen interest in visuals began at an early age while documenting life around him through photographs. After studying graphic design and obtaining a Masters Degree from The Royal College of Art in London, Robert moved to San Francisco and began a successful career in retail advertising. After 15 years, he decided to devote all his time to painting. He currently lives in Northern California and regularly exhibits in museums and galleries across the United States and Europe.
