Il Chiostro Art Exhibit

Every year Il Chiostro organizes an art exhibit for all alumni who have participated in one of our workshops in Italy.  It is a juried exhibit for painting, photography, sculpture, collage and mixed media.

Bella Italia!

In 2019 our show will move to the 7th Street Gallery in Philadelphia. It is just a block away from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall in this great, historic city:

Dates:  April 26 – May 5, 2019

Artists’ Reception:  Saturday, April 27, 4-7pm
Address:  30 S. 7th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106

We are very excited that Philadelphia is the venue this year!  If you haven’t been there in a while (or ever), this might be the perfect opportunity to discover it.  This is one of the great renaissance cities of the country.

Independence Hall

The 7th Street Gallery is right in the midst of the historic area and not far from the new American Revolutionary War museum.  The Philadelphia Museum of Art is among the best in the world, but there is also the new Barnes Museum that shouldn’t be missed.  It holds the largest collection of Renoir’s in the world.  And the Philadelphia restaurant scene is giving competition to New York and San Francisco with energetic young chefs flocking there because they can still afford to open a restaurant in one of the new, gentrifying areas, like Fishtown,  South Street and the 9th Street Italian market.  We have found Philadelphia to be a classic, revitalized American city worth visiting again and again.

We hope you will plan to come and stay for a couple of days.  Linda Mironti plans to offer her cabaret show on the weekend of the exhibit opening.

The HeArt of Italy

In 2017 the exhibit was presented at the gallery of the Italian-American Museum in New York. It was a great success and we wish to thank all of our artists who were in the show and also to everyone who submitted their work.  To see a virtual tour prepared expertly by our coordinator, Gilbert Rios, click on this link.  Some artwork is still available for purchase.  Contact the artist directly to make arrangements.

The Il Chiostro Past Exhibits in NY

Every year Il Chiostro organizes an art exhibit for all alumni who have participated in one of our workshops in Italy.  It is a juried exhibit presented in a gallery in New York in the spring and features original painting, photography, sculpture, drawing and collage.  There is an artists’ reception on the first Saturday.

 Il Chiostro’s 10th annual art exhibit: Congratulations to all the artists and instructors who participated in these 2 exhibits.  If you did not make it to either New York or Lambertville, NJ we have prepared a virtual exhibit for you to enjoy.  All artwork is still for sale, so if you are interested in purchasing a piece, please contact the artist directly.
