Hogan Associates Supports Local Arts in Newport, RI

Portraits of Leslie Hogan and Matt Hadfield by artist Lisa Bliss. Lisa belongs to a group of local artists, Aquidneck Island Art Club, which will be contributing paintings to the Wet Paint auction.

This summer has seen a resurgence of arts festivals that have come to define Newport, Rhode Island. Support from the local community is critical to the survival of these events. In addition to serving on the board of the Newport Music Festival and the Fort Adams Trust, Hogan Associates is proud to sponsor the Newport Art Museum’s 28th Annual Wet Paint fundraising event.

The Newport-based agency believes that life is not just about real estate, it’s about the community, culture, and spirit of a place. “The Newport Art Museum is an important and beloved Rhode Island institution,” says Hogan Associates broker/co-owner Matt Hadfield. It fosters the arts, offers learning opportunities, and practices historic preservation that benefit both the local community and visitors alike. Wet Paint is a unique way to engage local artists, raise needed funds, and have some fun!”

On Saturday, August 14th, the Museum will host a silent auction featuring hundreds of pieces of artwork created by artists of all ages. All proceeds benefit the Museum’s exhibitions, acquisitions, and collection care.

“There’s a lot of ‘wet paint’ in our profession, but it’s not as festive as Newport Art Museum’s,” says Hogan Associates broker/co-owner Leslie Hogan. “We like being a part of that.”
