The gallery and artist will offer discussions and classroom participation in the gallery through scheduled appointment times.
Introduction of the artist by the late historian Howard Zinn (c. 2009):
"Patrick Fiore is an accomplished artist, who has had many exhibitions in Florida and New York, who has been commissioned to produce paintings in at least a dozen venues, whose work has been published in the Washington Post, the New York Times, and graced many books. He has won numerous awards, has written articles for various newspapers and magazines, and has lectured in different parts of the country. He has been teaching at the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida for twenty years. Even with all of these accomplishments, it was a bold step for him to take on the daunting challenge of doing a series of paintings based on my book A PEOPLE’S HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES. What attracts me to his work is his profound understanding of the connection between art and social struggle. To join my work in history with his paintings is a striking expression of that connection."
Opening reception and performance on Friday, April 8, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.
