Restorer's Daughter

Artist Jennifer Bell, whose work is represented by Gallery Shoal Creek, is one of four artists showing in the exhibition "Nel Ricordo di Papa Giovanni Paulo Il Grande" ("In Memory of Pope John Paul II"), opening Dec. 18 in the southeastern Italian city of Altamura. The Canadian native, who is showing with established Italian artists Sodo Vittorio, Nardi Massimo, and Malvaso Vita, is neither Italian nor Catholic. But her paintings of the region, produced after Bell journeyed there in 2004 to help restore the crypt of an underground church, so impressed representatives of the Galleria D'arte I Tre Capricorni and the Catholic diocese of that region that they invited her to take part in the memorial exhibition they were organizing. After its opening in Altamura, the exhibition will travel to the cities of Gravina, Santeramo, Aqua Delle Fonti, Poggiorsini, and Spinazzola. Further venues across Italy are pending. You can also see some of Jennifer Bell's Altamura paintings a little closer to home, at Gallery Shoal Creek, 1500 W. 34th, and online at www.galleryshoalcreek.com. dance, comedy, classical, performance, general arts, comics
