In the wake of a hot, fiery August, a cooling wind blew from Italy to the Californian Mojave desert and brought some extraordinary Italian art with it. The Lancaster art scene, a surprising find in itself, is experiencing a fresh new taste of Italy with the arrival of seven Italian artists showing their works at the Museum of Art and History of Lancaster (MOAH) in an exhibition titled, Estate Italiana.

Guest curator Cynthia Penna is no stranger to the art world with numerous exhibitions in Italy, France, Japan, and the United States. She and her husband started a “cultural association,” Art 1307, in their hometown of Naples in 2007. Devoted to international exchanges of artists, Art 1307 has diligently brought artists from the United Stated to exhibit in Italy and the same with her Italian artists. These artists include many well-known Americans such as Laddie John Dill, Andy Moses, Todd Williamson, and Lisa Bartleson and a list of notable Italian artists who have rarely shown their artworks on the West Coast.
