WARWICK â€“ Jared Pedro has traveled a long, sometimes-satisfying, sometimes-stressful road as a â€śformerâ€ť hockey player for Tolman High.
He competed as a Tiger varsity team member for three years, but discovered as a junior that â€“ because of the lack of incoming freshmen with ice experience â€“ the decades-old program would fold.
PAWTUCKET â€” Pawtucket native Joseph McGowan has been on a long artistic journey since he began making decorative mirrors as a teenager back in the 1970s. That journey took him to the West Coast, where he is proud to be participating in a three-month art exhibit called â€śThrough the Looking Glassâ€ť at the Art Works Gallery in his hometown of Riverside, Calif.
McGowan will be one of three featured artists, along with Laura Ryan and Tracy Cantwell, who are taking part in the exhibit. The opening night is Thursday, Feb. 6, and McGowan will be reading some of his poetry during the evening.
