The Vero Beach Museum of Art is presenting a two-person show featuring the artists Anthony Biladeau and Lucius Passavanti. Titled Two Artists: Anthony Biladeau and Lucius Passavanti, the exhibition continues in the museum's Schumann Florida Gallery through July 20, 2003. These distinguished artists have both been employed as studio art educators at the museum.

Anthony Biladeau has taught printmaking and drawing at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Indian River Community College, Manatee Community College, and painting for children at the museum.  He has also participated in group and solo exhibitions throughout Massachusetts and Florida.  Currently, his medium of choice is acrylic painting.  Biladeau's works which will be featured in this exhibition are stylized floral still-lifesÐmagnified, luscious flora and vegetation depicted in luminous, pristine color.

Passavanti has taught portrait and life drawing classes at the museum from 1988 to the present. This exhibition features charcoal drawings and studies from his years as a student in New York City, circa 1930.  Represented are examples of his portraiture, life studies, and figure drawings.
