Flood Gallery Fine Arts Center in Asheville Offers Works by Cibele Leonetti

The Flood Gallery Fine Arts Center in Asheville, NC, is presenting an exhibit of works by Brazilian artist, Cibele Leonetti, on view in the Flood Gallery through Sept. 30, 2013.

Watercolorist, Leonetti was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil; and had her first contact with water, pigments and brushes, as a child. When she was 17 years old, she attended the Pan-American School of the Arts. Her dream was to pursue a career in Architecture; however, the number of women attending university was very small.

In 1979, Leonetti opened an art school for children, which she expanded to include adults five years later.

After fifteen years of teaching, Leonetti retired and moved to a farm that belonged to her grandmother. There, in a huge open-air studio, she focused her attention for watercolor painting and it became a major part of her life.

Leonetti’s work has been exhibited in several galleries including the Lorena Fatea, the House of Culture of Lorraine, in Paraiba Valley, the Hall of Arts of Sao Lourenco, the Rotunda in Cruzeiro, and in Yazigi Guarantingueta.

In 2005, Leonetti participated in a workshop at Burle Marx Park, Transparency and Shadows in Watercolor, and today she carries in her luggage, pigments, blocks and brushes.
