Rosel H. Schewel Theatre & Gallery (Suite 109)
June 7th - June 21st, 2019
This June, Italian artist, Fiorenza Guanetti's, timeless artwork will grace Riverviews Artspace’s Rosel H. Schewel Gallery & Theater. Her limited and exclusive handcrafted textile artwork will be shown for the first time in the United States. Guanetti’s “Onirico" Collection (Italian for “dreamlike”) is inspired by the flora and fauna of Smith Mountain Lake. Pieces in the collection are vibrant, charismatic, and one of a kind (literally, as each textile is carefully embroidered by hand). Guanetti has tremendous imagination and skill, giving her work the ability to reach beyond language barriers, cultures, and age with her simplified yet thoughtful characters and compositions. Riverviews Artspace will display her collection in the Rosel H. Schewel Gallery & Theater on the first floor from June 7th through June 21st, 2019.
