Invitation Quattro Gallery Austin Texas

Cari Amici (Dear Friends),

Oh, you can tell it is October. People are buzzing about again and it is beautiful out! And I hope that you are not missing my posts too much – there is so much going on and I recently injured one hand, so am moving a bit slower. However, I wanted to invite you to my “Arrivederci Texas” art exhibit. I am so excited about working with David Sackmary, who has modeled for me in the past, but also has returned from Hawai’i to Austin. Texas, taking up his role again as the director of the Quattro Gallery. Here goes:

Quattro Gallery in north Austin, Texas, is hosting accomplished artist Kelly Borsheim in a very special exhibition this fall before she returns to Italy. Kelly tends to focus on introspection, specifically how our bodies express our thoughts. In this art event, you will see paintings and sculptures with titles such as “Together and Alone,” “Relinquish,” “Hindsight,” and “Pensive in Bologna.” Quattro Gallery is located inside the Audi North Austin at 12971 Pond Springs Rd, Austin, TX 78729. The exhibit runs from October 25 to November 14, 2011, with a reception on Saturday evening, November 5, 2011, and a book signing on Saturday, November 12 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. Admission is free.

You will also see some works from her “lips series.” These sculptures have been hand-carved in stone by Kelly and combine human lips with animal forms in an exploration of how Nature’s shapes commingle.

When this versatile artist began living part-time in Italy, she added pastel to her media as she learned the old art of street painting. She combined her skills from the street with her classical art training to create lovely images inspired by Italy. These are not your usual Tuscan landscapes, but a more personal look into Italian homes, streets, and courtyards. For more information, visit or
