Bar and Board to highlight local artists at “Another Night at the Bar II”

If you are a fan of local art and are ready for a good night out, Bar and Board is the place to be tonight. This Wednesday, August 3, Bar and Board Bistro will host “Another Night At the Bar II”, an art exhibition curated by local artist Rian McCarthy. Following the success of his first show and highlighting local talent last year, McCarthy was hoping the event would continue on an annual basis. Tomorrow, that goal becomes reality.

“The reason we started this year last year was to give visibility to local artists, regardless of their gender, age or experience. We are blessed with so much talent around us and this year I am thrilled to feature a wide variety of artists, some who have decades of experience and others who are just starting to make themselves known for their craft. I was able to explore my interests in painting during the pandemic and someone really pushed me when I got back, and I’m happy to help others share their expression. “

McCarthy’s art will be exhibited in the Leopard Lounge (the upstairs space of the Bar and Board) on Wednesday evening along with 9 other artists; Alexa Winter (@thealexaart), Phil Easton (eastonxart), Sadie Housberg (@sadiehousberg), Revibed Vinyl (@revibedvinyl), Mary Spigel (seaing.colors), Syd Gordon (sydgordstudio), Meg Vien ( and Hugh Raisky.

Raisky, a 2-time Emmy Award winner, has been painting for years and lives in Newport with his wife Annette. During his career in television production design, he has worked on multiple Super Bowls, NBA Finals, and other major sporting events for NBC Sports. He designed the sets for two presidential debates and the moon landing set when he was working with Walter Cronkite.
