Art Exhibit: Constanza Mallol Paintings at the Somers Library
September 1 - 30, during library hours
Those who experience Constanza Mallol's colorful, descriptive still-lifes and figures are struck by their revealing use of light and form. The organic realism invokes the simplicity of the subject, yet the interpretation is informed by an artist with a unique life experience at the center of the cultural and political upheaval that shaped Latin America in the tumultuous decades of the late 20th Century..Career highlights include shows at SOHO 20, Warde-Nasse Gallery, Wisteria Gallery, La Mama La Galleria and Art Students League in New York City. Her work is on permanent display at the Museo de Arte Moderno in Chile, at the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at SUNY Stony Brook, and in private collections in the U.S. and abroad. Constanza leads a growing group of students at her Hudson River studio, where she creates new works and inspires young artists.
