FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
OCTOBER 10, 2021
Anahi DeCanio’s artwork was featured in a NEWSDAY Long Island Life and Homes article highlighting a Westbury Arts exhibition entitled LatinX thriving in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. The group exhibit organized by Alex Nuñez and Julie Lyons included 9 artists of various backgrounds and at different stages in their careers.
The two abstract mixed media paintings exhibited by Ms. DeCanio were very different in nature and style.
“NY Love Letters” honors the rich vibrancy of the city as represented by brilliant textures and colors with a subtle but noticeable graffiti styled typography in the background. The gold “window” often found in Anahi DeCanio’s work signifies a path to brighter opportunities and moments of self-discovery.
“Pasajes” is a mixed media abstract collage specifically created for the artist’s solo exhibition at the Consulate General of Uruguay in New York City held in conjunction with a celebration of Uruguay’s Independence Day. The piece references some of the artist’s experiences and memories from early childhood in Montevideo. She used tools that belonged to her parents to make some geometric markings and cutting the collage elements.
Ms. DeCanio is active in the thriving arts community across Long Island and New York, both exhibiting and volunteering. In her art practice, she has gallery representation and works closely with interior designers and real estate developers. Anahi has served on the boards of the Art League of Long Island and the Artists Alliance of East Hampton, and volunteers for ReachingU, all organizations near and dear to her heart. Ms. DeCanio combines her financial background and her marketing experience in the design world as a real estate professional with Douglas Elliman.
