Two artists with Block Island ties have a new show
By Lars Trodson
Two artists with Block Island roots are having a show of new artwork at The Hive, a cooperative artspace in North Kingstown. The show, featuring Joann Seddon and Henry Hackler, will have an artists’ reception on Saturday, Jan. 11 from 5 to 8 p.m. The Hive is located at 650 Ten Rod Road.
According to a press release issued by The Hive, Hackler is a pseudonym for a Block Island resident who has lived on the island for the past 13 years. Seddon was a well-known presence on the island who moved back to the mainland a few years ago. The show is titled “Anarchy in the NK,” a take on the infamous Sex Pistols tune from the late 1970s, “Anarchy in the UK.”
We caught up with Hackler via email this past week.
Q: The biography issued by The Hive, the cooperative artspace in North Kingstown where you will be having your first show, says that you have lived on Block Island for the past 13 years, but offers very little else.
