This press release just landed in my inbox a bit ago. I recall seing such announcements in the past, but never paid much attention to them.
Returning from New York City only a week after being designated a National Women’s History Month 2008 Honoree, Edna Hibel will greet her many followers and other members of the public at the Edna Hibel Fine Art Fair. The free two-day art fair will take place on Saturday and Sunday, April 5 and 6, at the Hibel Museum of Art, across the street from Roger Dean Stadium, in Jupiter, Florida.
In addition to greeting Edna Hibel and viewing her renowned art, the public will be able to see educational exhibitions featuring the complex art of stone lithography, and the complicated work of putting together an art book.
Edna Hibel, 91, has been painting for over 80 years. She is the only American woman to win the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Her paintings, lithographs, serigraphs, and sculptures have been exhibited in more than 20 countries spanning four continents in prestigious institutions, including six national museums.
Admission to the Edna Hibel Fine Art Fair is free, as is valet parking. Directions and other information may be obtained by contacting the Hibel Museum of Art at (561) 622-5560.
Today, I investigated the official Edna Hibel Web site and find I’m taken by the warmth and spirit of her art.
