Renowned Artist to be Featured in Faculty Cultural Enrichment Series

01.24.2013

fernanda piamontiHIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 24, 2013 – High Point University will host acclaimed international artist Maria Fernanda Piamonti as part of its Faculty Cultural Enrichment Grant Series. She will present “Building an Image through Unconventional Techniques” at 5 p.m. on Feb. 7 in the Francis Auditorium of Phillips Hall on the HPU campus.

Piamonti is hailed as one of the next up-and-coming artists, using ordinary objects, such as plastics spoons, instead of painting tools to create masterpieces.

Piamonti, an instructor of painting and drawing for 15 years, graduated in Fine Arts from Universidad Nacional de La Plata, and has been awarded for her art in Italy, Spain and Argentina. In 2008, she presented an art exhibition in the Argentinean embassy in Washington D.C.

The grant series at HPU assists faculty to feature nationally renowned academics, artists and performers for cultural enrichment events around campus. The grants support programming in all academic disciplines and help introduce students to thought provoking ideas in art, literature, science, philosophy and business.
