"ART OF THE STATE, 2004: the 37th Annual Juried Exhibition"
2004-06-12 until 2004-09-12
State Museum of Pennsylvania
Harrisburg, PA, USA United States of America

Art of the State™ is a highly competitive, juried art exhibition open to state residents in five categories: painting, works on paper, photography, sculpture and craft, and is juried by distinguished judges from around the Mid-Atlantic region including Painting and Works on Paper juror - Douglas N. Wirls, Assistant Professor of Painting at Pratt Institute in New York City. These out-of-state judges selected artworks from among 1,605 entries. Artists from 31 counties across the Commonwealth were represented in last year’s show. The Greater Harrisburg Arts Council presented cash awards totaling more than $6,500 to winners in each of five categories. Amoung the artists selected this year is Gerard Di Falco of Philadelphia.

Mr. Di Falco is featured in the 2004 and 2005 editions of WHO'S WHO IN AMERICA, because of his thirty year career in art. He is also the recipient of: a Artist's Residency in 2003 at The Philadelphia Museum of Art; a $30,000 Fellowship Award from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation in New York City in 2002 (the highest amount ever given by the foundation established by the estates of painters Jackson Pollock and his wife, Lee Krasner); and, a 1992 Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Award in Painting.

DiFalco draws much of his inspiration from the folklores of his Italian heritage; his grandparents were born in Lama dei Peligni (Abruzzo) and Potenza (Basilicata). The artist is quite interested in Italian customs and pre-Christian belief systems, and is currently working on a series of canvases based on the Neanderthal findings in Abruzzo.

Information on his work can be found at absolutearts.com where he is a Premiere Portoflio Artist: http://www.absolutearts.com/portfolios/g/gerarddifalco/
