A Haunting Portrait: Memories of Angela O’Leary

Friday, October 1st

Starting at 6PM with a seated dinner throughout the Club and a program to follow in the Maxwell Mays Gallery.

It happened exactly one hundred years ago on this very night: as Members were enjoying a social evening at the Club, young David Aldrich found Angela O’Leary lying near death on the floor of Sydney Burleigh’s studio in the Fleur-de-Lys.
Though her tragic suicide and her entrancing portrait overlooking Angell’s Lane are what most Members know about Angela, there is so much more to the life story of this gifted artist. On this night one hundred years will evaporate as key characters in this story reappear at the Club. Among those you’ll meet are Sydney Burleigh, David and John Aldrich, and Angela herself. This will be a memorable program you will not want to miss.

$35++Members and Guests. Reservations can be made at reservations@providenceartclub.org or 401-331-1114 ext. 3. for
