IAVANET Exhibition Opening: BY HAND AND BY LENS: Portraits by Italian-American Artists

The Italian-American Visual Artists Network (IAVANET) is a group of painters, sculptors, photographers, graphic designers and installation artists whose work encompasses a full range of expression from abstraction to representation. Some artists make explicit references to Italian and Italian-American themes, from family life to religiosity to pop culture.

IAVANET was formed in 2007 to promote and make known the world of Italian-American visual artists. Their mission extends to engaging with the larger Italian-American community. They are networking with Italian-American writers, poets and performing artists to collaborate on creative multimedia events, and hope to establish a mentoring program for Italian-American students who aspire to become visual artists.
