The female universe explored by painting and sculpture
Inaugurated in Cortina the “Woman Art Expo”, Longarone Fiere Dolomiti shows the preview of Arredamont and Arte in Fiera 2023
Art will be the protagonist in Cortina for almost a month, with Longarone Fiere Dolomiti. The Park Hotel Franceschi today inaugurated “Woman Art Expo”, a travelling exhibition that will also touch Venice and Treviso and is a sort of preview of Arredamont 2023, the mountain furnishing exhibition that traditionally also hosts Arte in Fiera.
This year in particular, visitors to Arredamont will find the “avenue of art” at Longarone Fiere Dolomiti (from 28 October to 5 November), a route in stages that will tell the story of the dialogue between artistic works and the mountain furnishing exhibition. The itinerary will end in an exhibition area where talks with the artists will take place and the visitor will find a tribute that speaks of furniture, art and mountains.
“In this way we want to enhance the various art, design and furnishing events, which are also linked by the now traditional presence of Arte in Fiera during Arredamont,” explains the president of Longarone Fiere Dolomiti, Michele Dal Farra. “Throughout its history, Longarone Fiere has hosted companies that have become leaders in their sector. The idea is to valorise young artists and replicate this growth model in art as well”.
WOMAN ART EXPO
The promotion of artists already starts with the Cortina exhibition, which can be visited until 18 August. “Woman Art Expo” is the result of a collaboration between the Centro Studi Veneto Arte of Treviso and Arte Fiera Dolomiti. An exhibition in the sign of women, which creates a bridge between Venice and the Dolomites. The revisitation of a universal theme that has been addressed over the centuries in all artistic expressions and that in Cortina will be manifested through photography, painting, engraving, weaving, mosaic and design. “In this eighth edition of the exhibition, a collateral event of Arte in Fiera, we bring established artists alongside newcomers and young artists,” explains Franco Fonzo, gallery owner and curator of Arte in Fiera Dolomiti. “There will be works by Lele Vianello, a famous illustrator and collaborator of Hugo Pratt, by Yvan Beltrame, a lecturer at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia who passed away in 2005, and by Ferruccio Gard, a master of Italian optical art with seven appearances at the Venice Biennial. Augusto and Franco Murer’s sculptures from the Murer Museum in Falcade will also be present. And then the artists that we will meet again at Longarone Fiere Dolomiti.
