The Falciglia Art Gallery at Hodges University is the site for an art exhibit entitled “It’s All About Women
,” now through October 29. The Gallery is located in the main campus building of Hodges’ Naples location, 2655 Northbrooke Drive, off Immokalee Road near I-75.
“Exposure to art is so important, and the Falciglia Art Gallery provides easy access to the students and community at the Hodges University campus in Naples,” said Dr. Ron Bowman, Vice President of Student Development at Hodges. “This showing represents a very personal portrait of the female experience and memory presented by very talented artists. From art born of loss to pure abstraction of the female figure, the show provides a variety of powerful images to ponder and enjoy.”
Most of the art work is on canvas, with specialty heirloom and bereavement quilts also on display. The works emphasize women in all facets of life. The pieces highlight a woman's life as a wife, mother, dancer, entertainer, poet or entrepreneur. Participating artists include Ana Abreu, Lidia Veiytes Dick, Dilya Schauer, Kathy Selvaggio, Cecilia Valadez, Judy Lorenzo Casablanca and Amarilis Dieppa.
In conjunction with the exhibit, the Hispanic Institute at Hodges has scheduled a Specialty Art Workshop on Saturday, October 9, from 10 am – 2 pm (Spanish language presentations) and Saturday, October 16, 2010 from 10 am – 2 pm (English presentations). The workshops will be presented by all of the participating artists of the exhibit.
There is no charge to view the exhibit or attend the workshops. For more information, please call (239) 598-6110.
