  • Mauro Manetti, Harmonium, Selected Works

    January 16–March 7


    Mauro Manetti is a contemporary painter, draughtsman and sculptor whose work reflects a deep fascination with his Italian heritage. Drawing upon Ancient Roman mosaics, Byzantine icons and Early Renaissance art, Manetti creates richly decorative artefatto, or imaginary “artifacts,” often fragmentary in form, as though recovered from a ruin. This traveling exhibition was shown in the Czech Republic and Italy before coming to SFA Galleries. A reception with the artist will take place Wednesday, Feb. 5, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
