Art exhibition in Cartoceto

thomas orthmann picture On Saturday evening we went with Thomas and Erica to the preview of an art exhibition in Cartoceto. Every year there is a festival to celebrate the olive harvest and for 11 years an exhibiton of work from local artists  has been part of the event. Thomas was exhibiting some of his recent work.

The exhibition is in the remains of an old theatre. The exhibits were on two floors and the top floor included the remains of the old theatre. In fact this top exhibition space was the stage of the old theatre and one of the artists, Giuliano del Sorbo had used the theatre’s auditorium to create an installation using images of tragic figures (hamlet, medea etc.).

I liked the work of Dea Belusco who painted large animal faces but with a sense that the animal was face to face with the viewer.

Thomas had 5 of his pictures on display – 3 prints and 2 paintings. The prints are a triptych on the theme of “Vive la Vie”, “Vive l’amour”, “Danse Macabre”.
