Hidden Treasures - Local Talent

Submitted By Diane Leys

A new selection of works by talented community artists will be featured in the upcoming edition of the popular bi-annual show "Hidden Treasures - Local Talent." Developed to showcase local artists committed to a personal journey of expression through art, this year's show presents the work of 27 remarkable people, selected for their originality and creativity, who share a desire to create pieces that are a unique expression of themselves, their cultures and life experiences. As an eclectic show exhibiting photography, painting, and sculpture, "Hidden Treasures - Local Talent" also features work ranging from the serious to the whimsical.

Examples of work to be shown reflect inspiration for both the emerging and the experienced artist found in the color and vibrancy of such things as childhood memories of the beach, artwork created by an artist friend in Yuma, Arizona, or in Rome, Italy, and by the by the murals of Diego Rivera and Rufino Tamayo. Inspiration was provided for a young girl encouraged by her mother to take her oil pastels on a trip to the Grand Tetons. Another found a previously unexplored artistic path with watercolors in the desire to challenge her brain following a stroke.

Many of the artists have received numerous awards and have their work in a variety of private collections. Two local artists and teachers, Dmitry Grudsky, acknowledged for his public art, and Maria Grazia Romeo are also internationally recognized for their work.

As this year's featured artist, Romeo's innate passion for the visual arts has led her to work in films, magazines, poetry books, advertising, stage design, and art education. Although her paintings are highlighted in this year's show, she is also known for her work in ceramics, glass, and jewelry.
