Reception Saturday to open exhibit by UWindsor art grads

Visual arts instructor Victor Romao (BFA 1991, BEd 1992, MFA 2010) and grad Pina Frabotta (BFA 1991) are two of four artists featured in “Telling Tales,” an exhibition opening this weekend at SB Contemporary Art.

The show focuses on drawings; all of the artists have been selected for the narrative quality of their work, says gallery owner Sarah Beveridge (BFA 1997).

“The new work of Victor Romao continues to be technically precise as he narrates a testosterone heavy subject matter that can be both shocking and humorous to the viewer at the same time,” she says.

Beveridge describes Frabotta’s art as “whimsical” and thought-provoking.

“There is a beautiful tension to Frabotta’s work that is fragile, vulnerable, but also so strong, honest and full of guts,” she says.

The exhibition also features works by artists Chris Down and Paula Cowan. A public reception will celebrate its opening Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. The show continues through February 23. SB Contemporary Art is located at 1017 Church Street, just south of Erie Street.
