As I have done for the past 8 years, I will be selling paintings atMarion Squareduring the Piccolo Spoleto Art Festival from May 22nd to June 6th.

The 17-day art festival was founded in 1977 by Gian Carlo Menotti, Christopher Keene and others involved in the festival of two worlds as the America counterpart to that festival held annually in Spoleto, Italy. A Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, Menotti began the Italian festival in 1958 as a forum for young American artists in Europe. The festival quickly became a haven for a large group of artists, both traditional and experimental, who found the mix of dance, theatre, opera, music, and the visual arts to be both exciting and stimulating.
