Event Details

In cooperation with Greg Bloch from Chicago’s Triad Art Group, the Evansville Museum presents 35 new paintings by contemporary Spanish artist Ramon Vilanova in a major Old Gallery exhibition from April 30 – July 9.

Born outside of Barcelona in 1947, Ramon Vilanova was discouraged by his parents from pursuing a career as an artist. His desire to paint, however, was compelling; and this self-taught artist has mastered the depiction of the fertile landscape of the northeast region of Spain that he calls home. Painting “plein air,” a French expression meaning “in the open air,” refers to the act of painting outdoors with the artist’s subject in full view. Vilanova captures the spirit and essence of the natural landscape by incorporating light, color and movement into his work.
