The LeMay Family Collection Foundation has announced an expanded summer fine arts program at its Marymount campus, kicked off this weekend with the opening of an exhibition of work by Northwest painter Ricco diStefano. The opening preview will be from 5-7 p.m. this Saturday, including an artist reception.
From the press release: “The June 29 event represents a major public exhibition designed to raise awareness (and funds) for an increasingly rich and diverse fine arts program that includes a growing number of fine painting, sculpture and historic offerings ranging from classic Americana and iconic statuary installations to new works by local and world masters.”
Based on Tiger Mountain, Spokane-born artist di Stefano is influenced both by his forested studio and his training in graphic design and illustration, creating Northwest-based landscapes in a vivid, unique style. Exhibits include a recent co-exhibition with Northwest glass legend Dale Chihuly.
A portion of all sales from work at the preview will go to the foundation.
5-7 p.m. June 29. Free. LeMay Marymount Event Center, 325 152nd St. E., Tacoma. lemaymarymount.org
