Leonard R. Craig Gallery at UCCPA Opens Showing by John Silverio on November 16
Unity, Maine – Paintings and drawings by John Silverio will be featured at the Unity College Centre for the Performing Arts (UCCPA) from November 16 through January 11.
The opening reception will be held November 16 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The reception is free and open to the general public. Light refreshments will be provided.
John Silverio’s recent paintings and drawings are compositions of shapes derived from roof and pyramid forms that provide a vehicle to explore form, shadow and color in a direct way. The work looks at progressions employing the Fibonacci Series and the Golden Mean. The surface texture of the watercolors is often deeply granulated, enriching the luminosity of the color.
Silverio studied architecture at Rhode Island School of Design, participating in the European Honors Program in Rome. He also studied with Louis Kahn at the University of Pennsylvania. He has painted and drawn throughout his life. He recently showed at the Caldbeck Gallery in Rockland and his work has been shown at the University of Maine, the College of the Atlantic, Open-space Gallery, Pine Tree Shop Gallery and Aarhus Gallery. He is also the author of three books on architecture that are available on Amazon.com. For informationvisit www.silveriowritings.com or www.silverioarchitectureanddesign.com.
