Lycoming College Art Gallery invites Williamsport and its surrounding communities to experience the architectural intricacies of Rome, Istanbul, New York, Rio de Janeiro, London and Berlin in “Paul Fabozzi: Place/Translation/Variation” beginning Jan. 25. A celebratory reception will begin at 5 p.m., with a gallery talk scheduled for 5:30 p.m. and gallery hours extended until 9 p.m. The exhibit will run through, Feb. 23.
Fabozzi’s exhibit features work from his international travels, focused specifically on his intimate experiences with urban landscapes. Through a combination of traditional drawing and photography techniques, he documents his sensory experiences with architecture and his reaction to said experiences. The result is a collection of handmade paintings that detail the memory of bodily experiences combined with an appreciation for the fleeting, the contingent, and the liminal.
Fabozzi received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Alfred University and went on to receive a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Pennsylvania. He also studied abroad in Siena, Italy, through the State University of New York Buffalo, and in Cortona, Italy, through a program at the University of Georgia at Athens. He is currently professor of fine arts at Saint John’s University in New York City.
The recipient of a fellowship in printmaking, drawing, and artist books from the New York Foundation for the Arts in 2005, Fabozzi’s work is in the permanent collections of the New York Public Library and The San Diego Museum of Art, among many others. He also is the editor of an anthology of writings on contemporary art.
The Lycoming College Art Gallery, located in downtown Williamsport at 25 W. Fourth St., contributes to the city’s arts culture and provides a way for the College to become more involved with the community surrounding it. Lycoming art students have the opportunity to interact with visiting artists, as well as learn first-hand the inner workings of a gallery.
The gallery is open Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, 4 – 8 p.m.; Saturdays, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and 5 – 9 p.m.; and on First Fridays, 4-9 p.m., during exhibitions.
