Tryon Painters and Sculptors (TPS) presents an exhibit featuring Francesco Lombardo with an opening reception on Sunday, Nov. 13 from 5 to 7 p.m. This is a opportunity to view his artwork, some of which has been on display at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington.
Lombardo studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, receiving his B.A. in painting in 2002 and shortly after studying with the painter Odd Nerdrum in Norway. In 2004 he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to study for a year in Iceland and found long-lasting influence in the cold, glowing skies of summer nights that never went dark.
His work was featured in the 2010 Outwin Boochever portrait competition after being selected from more than 3,300 entries.
Lombardo’s portrait “Monique” was featured in the publication “Art in America” and used in Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery advertising. His latest body of work features 22 pieces done on location in Florence, Italy during the spring of 2011.
This exhibit will run from Nov. 13 to Dec. 17 at TPS’ gallery, 26 Maple St. in Tryon. Gallery hours are Thursday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
