Event Description Please join us for Chiachio and Giannone\'s Reception on January 24th. Experience a unique opportunity and mingle with the artists while enjoying drinks, light refreshments, live music and more. 6:00pm to 7:00pm Members Only Preview Hour 7:00pm to 9:00pm Public Opening Working and living together as partners in Buenos Aires, Argentina Leo Chiachio & Daniel Giannone both trained as painters and now use threads and fabric as their painterly medium to create hand embroidery and textile mosaics as they “paint with needles”. Their embroidery is a celebration of the family portrait, using themselves and their dogs as the subjects they find new and imaginative ways of depicting themselves, filled with humor and fantasy, as they consider the changing concepts around family. Chiachio & Gianonne’s textile mosaics are references to LGBTQ artists and their legacy in Latin America.
