Villa Nova Gallery

Villanova, PA – When Rev. Richard G. Cannuli (O.S.A.) visited painter Timothy Sanchez in his Vero Beach, Florida, home last year, he immediately knew he wanted Sanchez’s abstract expressionistic paintings hanging in the Villanova University Art Gallery as soon as possible. “His work is remarkably beautiful,” notes Rev. Cannuli, who also chairs the University’s Theatre Department, curates Villanova’s art collection, and is himself an artist.

And so it came to be. An exhibit of 14 of Sanchez’s large scale works (one measures eight by seven-and-a-half feet) opens Friday, April 16, with a reception to meet the artist from 5 to 7 pm in the art gallery in the Connelly Center on the Villanova campus. The reception is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Entitled ‘Timothy J. Sanchez: Abstract Expressionistic Paintings’, the exhibit continues to May 20.

To those just a tad tired of the recently departed long, harsh winter, the incandescent, sunlight-inspired colors on canvas that Sanchez brings north come none too soon. “It is as if Sanchez . . . has broken apart the spectrum of tropical sunlight, plucked out the most exhilarating bands and applied them exuberantly,” notes reviewer Michelle Genz, in a recent issue of Vero Beach 32963, Sanchez’s home-town newspaper.
