Il Chiostro Art Exhibit

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

In 2020 we are celebrating our 25th anniversary by creating an exhibit designed to be accessible by a much wider array of alumni and viewers.  It will be a juried virtual exhibit of about 25 paintings, 25 photographs and 25 mixed media images that represent our workshops since 1995.  These will be displayed online with all work for sale directly from the artist.  The selected images will be displayed in Il Chiostro’s social media and at various special events throughout the year.

And then – of the images juried into this exhibit a special committee of judges will award “Premio Oro” (gold medal) and “Premio Argento” (silver medal) in each category.  The prizes associated with these awards will be:

  • Premio Oro (3) – 50% discount towards any Il Chiostro workshop in the next 2 years
  • Premio Argento (3) – 24% discount towards any Il Chiostro workshop in the next 2 years
  • Honorable mention (3) – an Il Chiostro logo shirt of your choice.

Call for submissions is open now.  Click here to submit your work.


Past Exhibits:

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.
