LIA GALLETTI Reflections On Canvas

July 27-7:00 pm - 10:00 pm UTC+0

Galeria Adelmo is proud to present an exhibition of recent paintings by Miami-based visual artist Lia Galletti. The exhibition will open to the public with an artist’s reception on Friday, July 27, 2018 and will be on view through August 28, 2018.


ABOUT THE ARTIST: Born in Havana, Cuba, 1943, Lia Galletti is a painter and printmaker, known for her abstract expressionist work. She left the island with her family at the age of 17 and moved to New York, where she finished her education and started to paint and exhibit her work in New York’s Greenwich Village and other venues on the east coast. Her father, also an artist, influenced her path towards becoming an artist as she watched him paint as a child. Lia has been painting ever since, developing her individual style and technique. She studied printmaking within the disciplines of etching, drypoint, linocut, silkscreen and monoprint. Lia exhibited her work and received an award at The Boston Printmakers, Brockton Art Museum, Boston, MA (1988). Her work is in their collection, as well as in the Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña, where she participated at the Ibero American Printmaking Biennial of San Juan, Puerto Rico. She recently participated in the Tokyo International Mini Print Triennial at Tama Art University Museum, Tokyo, Japan and will be exhibiting her work at the Haegeumgang Art Museum in South Korea later this year.

Lia has had solo exhibitions in Washington, DC; Orisha, Kingston, Jamaica and in Florida at Art Miami and Art Americas in Miami and Interstices at the Capitol Complex in Tallahassee. She has participated in collective expositions in the US, including Caribbean Visions: Painting and Sculpture (a traveling exhibition in 1995); Cadaqués, Spain; Ottawa, Canada and Mexico City (VI Bienal Iberoamericana de Arte Pedro Domecq). She participated in the Art In Embassies program in 1995 at the American Embassy in Kingston, Jamaica.

Lia has received several awards, including State of Florida Individual Artist Fellowship HM Visual Arts/Painting (2000). Her work is in several private and public collections, including Bacardi International and The Art Museum of the Americas at the Organization of American States, Washington, DC. Her work has sold at Sotheby’s New York. Lia Galletti currently lives in Miami, Florida, where she has her studio.
