The New Rochelle-based Puglia Center of America, in collaboration with Westchester County, is presenting an exhibition of Italian art by the Arcane Movement, titled “Magic Colors of Italy,” at ArtsWestchester in White Plains.
Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino is set to open the exhibition on Monday, March 11 at 7 p.m., as part of the Year of Italian Culture in the United States, declared by the Italian government. The exhibit is open to the public and will run until Friday, March 15 from noon to 5 p.m. each day.
Janet Langsam, CEO of ArtsWestchester, and Maestro Luciano Lamonarca, president and founder of the Puglia Center of America, will be part of the event. Lamonarca is a pop-operatic tenor, philanthropist, producer and artistic director of many musical projects
“This will be a great exhibit,” said Astorino, “and one – I can assure you – you don’t have to be Italian to appreciate.”
"We are thrilled that County Executive Astorino is opening our show," Lamonarca said. "The exhibit is just part of our celebration of Italian culture in Westchester. We will also have concerts, photos exhibits and a wonderful Puglia Food & Wine Show.”
The Arcane Movement originated from the reflection of art critic Paolo Levi and consists of five member artists. The style of art can be described as spiritual, mysterious and dreamy without being surreal.
The Puglia Center of America promotes the Puglia region of Italy, especially in the creation and exchanges of cultural, tourist and educational assets between the the region and the U.S. The group organizes promotional and cultural events that serve to support global objectives, such as the United Nations Millennium Development Goals and missionary and humanitarian projects aimed at fighting cancer.
The organization has its executive offices at 100 New Roc City Plaza.
