Ange Bentivegna graduated from Westfield Academy and Central School. After graduation from high school, she studied at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh for fashion illustration and commercial art, Carnegie Mellon for fine art, the University of Minnesota for Japanese Rosome painting and the University of Buffalo for art in medicine. Ange earned a MFA in illustration from Syracuse University.
Ange launched her career as a professional artist in Pittsburgh, working with department stores, boutiques and advertising agencies. She also worked as a new products designer and graphic artist for a major gymnastics manufacturer in York, Pa. Her work continued to evolve and broaden into the fine arts where she displayed her work in art galleries and at art shows in the York, Pa, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Atlanta and New York areas. Her artwork enhances the ambience of restaurants, health care facilities, corporate businesses and private homes all along the East Coast.
Some other interesting highlights of her career include designing, developing and coordinating a therapeutic art program for Wellspan York Hospital, where she worked with cancer patients and others who needed a creative outlet to help with their healing process. She was also a team leader and supervisor for artists at Sight and Sound Theaters in Lancaster, Pa. as well as a scenic artist and designer for Word of Life Theater in Hudson, Florida.
Ange has developed many innovative products for manufacturers and for her own entrepreneurial endeavors, including her pizzARTzy art. A PizzARTzy is a clever 10-inch circle of original art packaged in a pizza box and was developed when she had the desire to send something inspirational and lighthearted to a friend who was in intensive care. PizzARTzy now has an online presence.at www.pizzARTzy.com.
Maria Pizzino, manager of Woodbury Vineyards, loved the idea of the pizzARTzy art so much that she invited Ange to develop classes for her customers. This endeavor has led them to creating a beautiful spacious Art Gallery located inside the winery. So, not only can you come together to enjoy fine wine and art, you can become a participant in creating your own original art right in the winery.
Creating art is universal and is not a difficult process, rather it is an inner expression that is made visible by just letting go of your inhibitions and enjoying the beauty of creating. It is a diversion from everyday cares and concerns and a light-hearted exercise. We can teach you the freedom and enjoyment of self-expression.
Woodbury Vineyards and Ange Bentivegna are also offering custom arts and crafts parties, where you can design and create your own wine glass, decorated wine bottles, or wine gift baskets. Call Ange (512-948-8848 ) to discuss your theme, party date and your preference for creating an art/craft or painting a pizzARTzy. She will translate your ideas into an inspirational and fun filled event. All parties booked before the end of December will receive a 10 percent discount.
