Rosalba Pedrina is a female Italian artist and art teacher living in Vicenza, Italy.

Bio[edit]

Rosalba Pedrina was born in Clusone, Italy, on August 14, 1944, during the Second World War.[1] She was raised in Povolaro, a small town outside Vicenza in the northeast of Italy, not far from Venice.[2] Her father was Francesco Pedrina, a professor and literary critic.[3]

After studying painting in Honolulu, Hawaii, she returned to Italy where she showed her first work in a collective exhibition in 1971.[4] She continued painting and, in 1981, opened a gallery called "Atelier d'Arte Studio R" in Vicenza, Italy.[5] In 1987, she started an art school for children.[6][7] The studio and art school are both still in operation in Vicenza in the Palazzo da Schio on Corso Palladio, where she teaches classes for children and also for adults.[8][9] She celebrated the 25th anniversary of her art school in 2012.[10]

Her artwork includes paintings, drawings, engravings, and ceramics.[11] Most of her work has found its way into private collections in the United States, Italy, and other countries in Europe. Her work includes paintings of Venice, landscapes, flowers, and paintings relating to the sea. One of her most famous pieces (now in Italy) is the "Stations of the Cross (Via Crucis) for Persons Living with HIV/AIDS," a collection of twelve pieces originally created in 1992 to commemorate World AIDS Day.[12] The "Via Crucis" work was last shown in 2008 in Vicenza at the Church of St. Mary of the Servants.[13] She has also done extensive work in ceramics.

A book of her artwork, Rosalba Pedrina: Armonie di un Canto—Dipinti, Desegni, Incisioni, Ceramiche, was published (in Italian and English) in 1995.[14][15]
