If you've never experienced Violetta Antnoia Sorcini's passionate artwork, you will have this exciting opportunity starting Saturday, April 21 at La Galeria Gitana in the San Fernando Valley. The show, which features local artists, closes Friday, June 1.
Sorcini is a veteran artist whose paintings, photography and collages often show at local galleries, including ChimMaya.
Born and raised in East L.A., the half-Latino artist is now preparing for what she anticipates will be a life-changing Art Odyssey to Central Italy to meet and live with the Italian side of her family for a month.
"The whole reason I'm going to Italy is to create an art book about my experiences with my relatives and the communities that I'll be visiting,"

The central theme of Sorcini's non-abstract paintings, photographs and collages is "story."

"My artwork is composed of allegories that make statements about how I see the world," said Sorcini. "I invite contemplation while staying positive."
