Local Artist Donates a Painting
Ron Brule, a local painter, donated one of his paintings today to the North Smithfield Heritage Association. Brule has long admired photos taken by his friend and neighbor, Bill Burroughs. When Burroughs used a unique perspective to take a photo of the buildings on either side of the Memorial Town Building, it inspired Brule to create a painting of the scene. He plans to create more paintings using images captured by Burroughs.
Meanwhile, the Heritage Association will display the painting at the Memorial Town Building, along with others created by local artists.
