Concetta Antico Shares Her Artful Lifestyle

It makes me proud to say that I have a friend who is an accomplished artist. Her name is Concetta Antico-Pizzinat. Concetta is originally from Australia and has made San Diego her home. By knowing Concetta, I’ve been gifted with a greater appreciation for art and the way an artist sees the world. Concetta believes that her oil paintings are meant to “capture the colors the creator intended us to see.” When you see her artwork you can better appreciate what she means by this statement.

Having known Concetta for a considerable amount of time, I’ve gotten to experience firsthand her passion for art and her dedication to making sure others benefit from what she knows and enjoys. She lives an artful life. It’s obvious by the way she paints, dresses, her home and art studio, the way she entertains, and the way she brings creative and artistic traditions to her family, friends and students.

Besides the fact that Concetta loves art, she also is an amazing teacher. She’s taught adults and youngsters how to believe in themselves as artists, and to see the world and everything around us with a new set of eyes. Her students are extremely dedicated to Concetta and speak “praisingly” of her ability to inspire them and help them find their true artistic talent.

They say, “It takes one to know one.” I am referring to Concetta’s ability to find the artist in her students. Because she is a great artist, she knows how and what to communicate to her students. She firmly believes that oil painting, or any other creative endeavor, is merely a skill to be learned and that everyone is inherently capable. When you watch her instruct and see the results of her effort you know she has a great talent for bringing out the artist in others.

Concetta has another gift that is very rare. She sees color in a way that few can relate to. That’s because she has a rare genetic disorder that is called Tetrachromat, which means she has a fourth-color vision receptor. This super vision status allows her to process over 100 million colors. She definitely sees the world with a unique set of eyes. Concetta recently shared with me that she always wondered why others didn’t see the colors in the world as she did. Now she understands why. She is extremely grateful for this gift of sight.

If you look at her artwork you see amazing depth and an explosion of color, unlike anything I have ever seen. I feel fortunate to be a collector of Concetta’s art and encourage anyone who is interested in learning more about “the woman who paints amazing masterpieces,” to visit her website and call for an invite to an upcoming exhibition, “Earthly Delights,” that is scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m., Saturday, April 26 at Antico Fine Art Gallery, located at 1920 Fort Stockton Drive in Mission Hills.

Not only will you get to see her latest work, you will also enjoy the music of two of San Diego’s finest musicians, David De Alva and Sky Ladd. De Alva is an extremely talented guitarist and Ladd is a magician with the keyboard. Both will provide a truly entertaining evening.

And, of course, you will get to see the latest works of Concetta Antico Pizzinat, alla prima and plein air. I’ll be there and hope you’ll join the rest of us who want to experience art, music and socializing with like-minded friends. To learn more, visit www.ConcettaAntico.com.
