Press Release: Riverviews Artspace Hosts Italian Artist in First U.S. Show

Lynchburg VA -  A dream come true for Italian artist, Fiorenza Guanetti, whose handcrafted textile artwork will be shown for the first time in the United States at Riverviews Artspace.  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 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, as well as some works on paper, in the Rosel H. Schewel Gallery & Theater on the first floor from June 7th through June 21st, 2019.

Opening Reception will be during First Friday from 5:30pm to 8pm on June 7th. Gallery hours are 12pm to 5pm Wednesday through Sunday and all of Riverviews Artspace’s exhibitions are free and open to the public.
