Biography

As Far Back As Gloria Cigolini Can Recall, Creativity Has Been Her Healer, Her Solace, Her Friend And Joy. This Experience Of Awakening To Life Through Creativity Permeates All Her Work.

Born Prematurely And Later Diagnosed With A Life-Threatening Childhood Disease, Cigolini Spent Much Of Her Early Youth In Hospitals. After Surviving Several Near Death Experiences She Knew She Would Commit Her Life To Painting And Drawing. She Attended New York'S School Of Visual Arts, And Afterwards Worked Professionally As A Textile Designer For Edward Fields Carpets. Wanting To Pursue Her Own Artistic Talents, Cigolini Moved To Paris To Realize Her Dream To Further Study Art And Painting. In Paris, She Studied At The Louvre With Art Historian Madame Augarde, Steeping Herself In Art History And Architecture. At The Paris American Academy, She Studied Painting With Monsieur Arnaud D'Hauterives, Who Was The Recipient Of The Coveted Legion Of Honor Award In 1977 And He Was A Student Of Balthus. D'Hauterives Introduced Her To Several Salons. In Less Than A Year She Was Invited To Exhibit With The Salon De Comparison And The Salon Des Artistes Francais. She Won An Award At The Grand Palais In1978 For Her Large Canvas, "Moving On With The Salon Des Artistes Francais." She Returned To New York Earning Other Awards: First Place At The Duncan Gallery Prix De New York 1979 Exhibition, And The Mamaroneck Artists Guild 1980 Juried Exhibition.

She Returned To Europe1982 And Discovered The Macchiaioli Painters Of Tuscany. In Italy Where These Paintings Were First Seen Would Prove To Have A Profound Effect On Her. She Then Proceeded To Paint A Series Of Sun Drenched Landscapes Of The Mediterranean. This Series Was Received Enthusiastically And Was Shown In Ny At Several Galleries Including The Hansen-Feurman Gallery On 57Th Street, The Jack Gallery In Soho, And The Leonardo Di Mauro Gallery In Ny. The Mediterranean Series Then Toured The Midwest And Was Shown At The Fort Wayne Museum Of Art, Columbus Ohio Museum, And Indianapolis Museum Of Art. The Series Also Appeared On Dariaz Suisse Editions Note Cards For Distribution In Europe. Her Most Recent Works Have Been Shown With Art Dialogue And The Joseph D. Carrier Galleries In Toronto, And The Art Gallery Of Ontario, (Ago). She Continues To Paint Landscapes Of The Hudson Valley And Is Inspired By An Inner Knowledge Of What Some May Call A Channeled Muse Allowing The Spirit Of The Eternal To Guide Her. Ms Cigolini-De Pietro Has Also Earned Her Master'S Degree In Art Therapy And Uses Her Knowledge Of The Creative Process To Help Orphaned And Displaced Youth.
