ARTChurch with the Artist – Sunday, May 6, 2018, 10:00am – 11:00 am
Reception and Reflections with the Artist – Friday, June 01, 2018, 7:00 pm
Rita Ortolino-Dioguardi, a talented collage and quilt artist, has been creating collage art since a young girl. What started as childhood art projects has bloomed into unique and colorful pieces of art. These stunning images are spontaneous creations. Her paper collages are created by ripping, not cutting, simple splashes of color from magazines and glossy advertisements and her quilts are born from simple scraps of material. Each piece of art is given a witty name that helps bring the creation to life.
Prints and cards of Rita’s work will be available for purchase during the installation.

ARTChurch with the art – Sunday, July 8, 2018 10:00 am
I infuse my work with an active, vibrant, sensuous love of existence. The physical solidity of all true spirituality is at the heart of all my work. I find color particularly delicious and prefer to capture it “in motion.”
I am inspired by ancient icons and their mandate to “paint the glory of God” and by the movement and evocative aspects of art and life on the heroic scale, even when focusing on minutiae.
My journey has traversed through landscape, figure, face and abstraction; but always the form emerges, triumphant and alive.
My relationship with God is at the heart of all my work, informing and vitalizing the subject and its’ emergence. To evoke this interconnectedness I create several pieces around a central theme such as Creation, Woman, Transformations, Mystery, and Song: Inviting us deeper into the richness of life in God.
