Since arriving in Greensboro in 2010, Bill has made friends with members of the community and one friend, in particular, is ArtsGreensboro’s Director of Development Catena Bergevin. They met at Union Coffee and instantly bonded over their love of art, their Italian roots, and their family history in Philadelphia. Bill shared his remarkablestory that lead him to Greensboro, his love for cars and books, and inspiration for his intriguing art pieces. “I am grateful for the support I have received here”, he remarks in his bio for the exhibition.
“Bill’s paintings are fluid and gestural, but it’s his drawings that truly inspire me,” shared Catena when asked what she loves most about Bills’ artwork. “I’ve become a collector and even commissioned a few to give as gifts. I’m honored to be hosting Bill for a tiny Exhibition.”
Bill’s artwork will be on view at the tiny Exhibition located at 200 N. Davie Street, Suite 201 – inside the Greensboro Cultural Center. For information on the tiny Exhibition program, please visit artsgreensboro.org.
