Local painters, sculptors, photographers and mixed media artists are boxing up their best work and transporting it to Casa Italia for its annual art show.
An opening reception is scheduled for 7 to 9 p.m. on Aug. 11 in the Mentesana Weber Chandelier Room at the Casa.
“All are welcome to attend, get a first look at the art and enjoy the drinks and hors d’oeuvres,” says Horacio Baggio, art show director.
The exhibit coincides with the Festa della Famiglia in honor of San Francesco di Paola, which is held on the Casa grounds from Aug. 11 to 13. Fest-goers can view the art exhibit from noon to 6 p.m. on Aug. 12 and 13. The show continues through Aug. 19.
Artists interested in exhibiting are encouraged to contact Darrell Marchioretto at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no fee to participate.
