Rancho Bernardo Artist Wins San Diego Watercolor Society Honor

Rancho Bernardo’s artist Vita Sorrentino won third place in this month’s “Visual Dialogues” exhibit from members of the San Diego Watercolor Society.

Sorrentino’s “Windswept 3” – a 20-inch by 14-inch mixed media painting – was selected by prominent local artist Ken Goldman from over 200 entries.

“It seems like the artist has a great sense of seasons,” Goldman said in an SDWS press release. “We see the sunflower, gravity pulling in the biggest bud, and the open blossom moving into winter.

“The background textures are gorgeous, with a dark quality and understated color cast, with an occasional accent of a warm exit,” Goldman said. “It’s no exaggeration; it’s just.

“Windswept 3” and other artwork can be viewed at the SDWS Gallery at 2825 Dewey Road in Liberty Station through Sunday, May 29. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. Free entry.

Paintings can be viewed and purchased at the gallery and at sdws.org.

Sorrentino left her native Italy for the United States in 1960 and has lived in Rancho Bernardo since 1979. She began painting in watercolor while living in New York City, where she attended the New York Fashion Institute. After being introduced to various mediums, watercolor became her passion and her medium, according to her biography.

His recent works also use acrylic and gouache. Sorrentino studied with renowned national and local teachers. His paintings have been exhibited in exhibitions across the United States, won numerous awards, and are in numerous private collections. More of his work can be viewed at zhibit.org/vitasorrentino.
