Campus hosts Candioti exhibition

Painter Ana Candioti’s telling portraits of native peoples of the Americas will be on display at California State University, Sacramento’s Union Gallery Sept. 29 - Oct. 24 as part of Hispanic Heritage Month activities. A reception for the artist is scheduled for 6 - 8 p.m., Oct. 1, at the University Center Restaurant. Titled “Art and Testimony: The Faces of Our American Roots,” the exhibition features around a dozen paintings.

Born in Buenos Aires in 1944, Candioti attended prestigious Argentinean art schools through the early 1970s and by the middle of the decade had distinguished herself as a national talent. Numerous shows in her country’s galleries, cultural centers and universities followed, bringing her to the attention of the South American art world.

Around 1980 Candioti committed herself to a national movement in Argentina exploring the cultural traditions of native peoples. She began to focus her work on depicting the rapidly vanishing faces of the indigenous. Her efforts and talent soon garnered worldwide praise and invitations to exhibit her work internationally. Candioti is now a resident of Miami, where she has a studio and gallery.
