This will be a Zoom event, held at 4 pm on Thursday, November 16th. A Zoom link will be sent by email to all NFWS Members on the Monday before the Thursday afternoon Meeting.
Artist’s Statement:
The world needs more positivity these days. We artists can help to make people happier. We are the un-licensed therapists of this world. We can create art that simply pleases the eye and make people smile, or create art that make viewers go back in time, to memories of less chaotic times in their lives; or perhaps we can create art that carries its viewers to a peaceful place they have always dreamed of. Each artist has the potential to fulfill a need in someone’s else mind.
Originally from Spain, Lana Privitera graduated in 1983 from the Fine Arts School of Zaragoza, where she majored in Fashion Design and Art History. After working in Advertising for a few years, she moved to the USA in the early 1990s.
