Opening at HPU Art Gallery Trifecta by Tanya D’Avanzo, Alicia Francis Soder, and Barbara Ward

A group exhibition of works titled Trifecta, by Tanya D’Avanzo, Alicia Francis Soder, and Barbara Ward, will open with a reception from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the HPU Art Gallery on Sunday, July 20, 2014.  The exhibit will run until Friday, September 12, 2014.

Each of the three artists has been a student of The Honolulu Museum of Art School for over ten years and they have in common the same artistic mentor, Paul Levitt.  The artists of “Trifecta” will provide a direct example of how common training can be taken in unique and different directions.  In this show, they will exemplify compositions of abstract, portrait and narrative works.
