CIANNE FRAGIONE: DANCING THE TARANTELLA
September 9th - October 8th, 2017
This exhibition features Fragione's most recent works inspired by her travels through her ancestral homeland, Italy. Her palette is drawn directly from the mountains of the north and the coast of Sicily. Fragione's first career in the arts was as a professional dancer. When she left the stage and began painting in the 1980's she developed an expressive, gestural style of painting. Each of Fragione's works make the eye dance across the canvas. The title for the exhibition DANCING THE TARANTELLA is taken from the traditional Italian folk dance which concludes each festival with a swirling celebration of joy.
