Honors for Artist, Robert Patierno

Posted on

Creativity and artistry run deep and wide in the Patierno family. Artist and brother of Chef Lou Patierno, Robert Patierno’s work adorns the walls of Girasole and is featured in our annual art sale in December (the date of which is still to be determined.)

Not surprising to anyone that has seen his work, Robert was selected as an artist for the Boston Printmaker’s prestigious 2015 North American Print Biennial. Robert’s work is also part of Totemic 17, which is a publisher of unique and limited edition woodcuts. Additionally, Patierno’s block prints have been put on exhibit in the Maier Museum and three relief prints have been placed in the permanent collection of The Musselman Library at Gettysburg College. Congratulations, Robert!
