An Artist’s Adventure Through the Hill Towns of Italy

May 19th @ 7:30 pm

$15
Event Description
May 19th @ 7:30 PM

 

In the late summer and early fall of 2013, Anita Lehmann was the recipient of a mid-career fellowship awarded by the Northwest Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in Italy/Civita Institute and began a creative exploration that resulted in an extraordinary collection of drawings. Based at the Civita Institute in Civita di Bagnoregio, arguably the most romantic hill town in all of Italy, Anita’s drawings began to unfold into stories of her daily experiences.

Come learn how Anita’s drawings recorded her daily engagement with the architecture and life in Civita di Bagnoregio, an ancient Etruscan city known famously as “the dying city” – la città che muore. In organizing her visual experience, Anita presents us with a visual feast of spaces where Italian piazzas and forms of ancient buildings are punctuated by a wealth of architectural details and the brilliance of Italian light. Her drawings are a rich and poetic experience.

Come join Anita in a glorious presentation of the beauty of Italy captured through her drawings and stories.

Then there’s the “evocative.” It is all of the above, plus the memory of experience and place—the senses, the history, the structure, and the story. This is how Anita draws. This is how she connects with the world and experiences life.
