Art League artists come from the world over and travel just as widely. Our latest international news comes from sculptor George Tkabladze, an Art League artist and sculpture instructor. (See his schedule of classes here.)

Regulars will remember the sculptures at right and below from two Art League exhibits in 2013 — the Student/Faculty Show and “Shapes.” George was invited to exhibit them in two upcoming shows in Italy.

Romantic Allusions, left, will be at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna Giuseppe Sciortino) for the Trinacria Award exhibit, March 15 to 31. The museum is in the cathedral in Monreale, Italy, near Palermo. Hello! My Name is Jujuna is part of the Triennial Exhibition of Visual Arts in Rome, June 6 to 13.

George is headed to Sicily soon for the opening of the exhibit in Monreale. Congratulazioni, George!

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
