Agora Gallery Presents Santina “Semadar” Panetta

Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature Italian artist, Santina “Semadar” Panetta, in Portals of Perception. The exhibition is scheduled to run from November 23, 2010 through December 14, 2010 (opening reception: Thursday, December 02, 2010).

Filled with the spirit of the natural world, Santina “Semadar” Panetta’s paintings blur the boundaries between landscape and abstraction. While her works remain largely nonrepresentational, one cannot help but feel the essence of the seasons which inspire them. Semadar’s pointillistic style recalls the works of Seurat and other Impressionists of the late 19th century. Working in oils she fills her canvases with small dots of color. The effect is brilliantly vibrant, and her paintings seem illuminated and rippling with movement and texture. “My Work demonstrates that Art is a language; an alphabet with an eloquent vocabulary, a painting is written and read as a letter, every movement has its rhetoric and philosophical research,” Semadar writes.

Before immigrating to Montreal Semadar was exposed to the classical arts in both Greece and her native Italy at an early age. Following the events of September 11, 2001 her passion for art became reignited in a blaze of creativity and she devoted herself to the development of her now internationally distinguished career.
