Just one week ago...a round up



Laura Genovese

I thought I would show you some of my favourite artwork from our exhibition.  We were over 100 artists including musicians, film makers, photographers and writers so there was plenty to choose from.  These two paintings by Laura Genovese were very large, taking up a whole wall.  Laura is very young but already has so much talent.

The lovely Nina Pellitteri is a retired doctor and very well known in town.  She started to create her sculptures only after she retired, despite her father being a well-known sculptor.  He told her when she was young that it was impossible to make a decent living out of art and advised her to follow a different career!

All in all the exhibition has been a very positive experience, it was amazing to see how much talent there is concentrated in one small town and most of all I made so many new friends!

Nice pieces. How wonderful to be where there are so many artists and of various types too. That first picture made me think it was a photo at first!

Great stuff! I am always impressed by really large, really well-done paintings. Makes me want to go buy a huge canvas and give it a shot (but the cost generally squashes those plans!) Sounds like you had a really great time!
