About the Artists
Angi Curreri, Professor of Art, is exhibiting intimate ceramic shrines inspired by her travels, intended to provide the viewer with a quiet moment of observation and reflection. Curreri’s husband, Rick Yasko, is showing dynamic charcoal drawings that at first appear to be still life compositions, but are actually creations from his imagination referencing both his lifetime of drawing through observation and the decade he spent designing as a landscape architect. The artists create their work in studios at home in Ft. Lauderdale and have been exhibiting throughout the US together during 28 years of marriage.
To learn more about the couple’s home and studios, see the article “Casa Currasko” in American Craft Magazine’s October/November 2012 issue.
Marina Font, born in Argentina and a Barry University alumna, presents photographs of objects that to the artist evoke a particular place or personal history and explore ideas about identity (gender, territory, and language) from her perspective as an immigrant woman.
Font studied photography at Speos Ecole de la Photographie in Paris prior to earning her MFA in Photography at Barry in 2009. Since earning her MFA, she has exhibited extensively at galleries and museums throughout Florida. She recently had a solo exhibition at the consulate of Argentina in New York and is concurrently exhibiting “Marina Font: Dark Continents” at Dina Mitrani Gallery in Miami.
These and all exhibitions in the Andy Gato Gallery are free and open to the public.
