Painters Exploring Italy

Since the early 1980s, Beryl Landau and Anthony Holdsworth have traveled and painted in Italy on their extensive visits. This exhibition represents a survey of works created on site, from Lake Como in the north to Catania in the south, and of studio paintings inspired by their trips. The artists are interested in Italy's astonishingly rich architectural and artistic history as well as its contemporary culture. "I seek an approach in which the abstract dynamics of color and paint application play an essential role in conveying the essence of place," Holdsworth says. A similar connection with place informs Landau's paintings. She wrote "I call my work symbolic landscape. The acrylic paintings depict geographical places but are intended to evoke inner feelings and create a state of mind."

Join the artists at the Opening Reception, and for their Video Presentation and Artists' Talk at the Italian Cultural Institute.

Anthony and Beryl are generously donating 25% of the proceeds from the sales of their paintings to Progetto Quid.
