In honor of Women’s History Month (March) the Italian American Museum will present a selection of works by 13 women artists of Italian heritage from March 3 through April 30.  They all are accomplished artists who have exhibited in galleries and museums both nationally and internationally.  Each woman brings forth her artistic vision in paintings, collages, sculptures, photography, and graphic designs.  Their artwork reflects who they are and how they see the world.

An opening reception will take place on the evening of Friday, March 3 and a special “Meet the Artists” discussion will occur on Thursday, March 23(RSVP 212-965-9000).
For some of the artists, inspiration is derived from their love of Italy, the immigration experience and remembering their ancestry.  Others incorporate nature and symbolism in their work, creating works through design with an Italian flair.
Each of these artists are Italian-born or daughters of immigrants from many small towns in Italy.   They speak with intensity about their heritage and how it is part of how they view life.
The artists are Matilde Alessandra, B. Amore, Maria Cocchiarelli, Janine Coyne, Daniella Day, Louise Fili, Irene Gennaro, Barbara Gerard, Nancy Macina, Michela Martello, Martina Secondo Russo, Assunta Sera, and Annamarie Trombetta.
