Between Us: Paintings by Virginia Cascarilla

February 13 - March 15, 2015 | Jean Bulicek Galleria

Oliver & Claire 3"'Between Us' refers to the organic space that informs our lives and my art. It’s where one finds meaning and dignity which exists on many levels: between one and another, one and one’s work, and one and one’s God. The assault by the constant flow of new data in this 'age of information' via smart media is countered by relationship. I choose to paint about human connection, 'Sacrament of Relationship'. In this organic space, transformation abounds and finds expression in the arts, painting, sculpture, dance, theatre, poetry, literature, and love." - Virginia Cascarilla

About the Artist:

Virginia graduated James Ford Rhodes High School in Cleveland, Ohio where she earned a four year degree to Boston Museum School of Fine Arts. She graduated from St. Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana with a BFA in Painting and Education. While working as a Teaching Assistant and a staff member in the Michigan State Art Gallery, Virginia earned a MFA in Painting and Art History. Virginia’s work may be found in private and public collections in several states.

While raising her family, Virginia taught at Cuyahoga Community College and the Cleveland Institute of Art as an adjunct professor of art for over 35 years. Now, she mentors people who have always wanted to paint it in a group called Studio 252: A Community of Artists. This group is open to adults from beginners to professionals.

As a lifelong volunteer in the arts, Virginia has worked with the homeless, adults with disabilities, and children with disabilities. Virginia created 'Nora’s Collectible Cards', a greeting card line based on Virginia’s paintings with inspirational verses inside, i.e. “Courage is the tipping point of all virtue” (C.S. Lewis.) Some of her cards may be found at the Beck Center as well as at V. Regallo / The Desk Set, Bay Arts, and several other venues in the greater Cleveland area, with a portion from each card sold will benefit Project ALS, better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
