Lauderhill, FL USA…. Bibliotheca Alexandrina International Biennale for Miniature Graphics has selected two works from LAC resident artist, Liliana Gerardi for its permanent collection. The Bibliotheca Alexandrina (Alexandria Library) is located in ancient city of Alexandria, Egypt and its annual international exhibit for miniature art features printmaking from all over the world, in its most ancient to most avant-garde forms.

Ms. Gerardi, one of the original artists-in-residence at the LAC, was born in Argentina. Ms. Gerardi earned a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts from the Universidad Nacional De Cuyo with a Major in Printmaking. Since moving the United States in 2000, Ms. Gerardi has demonstrated a strong commitment to spread engraving techniques in the South Florida area. She conducts classes at the LAC in printmaking and volunteers to teach printmaking at Parkway Middle School in Lauderhill.

I am inspired by primitive art, aboriginal art, as well as art with spiritual significance.” Since 1990, she has participated in exhibitions in Argentina, Mexico, Panama, Brazil, Spain, Belgium, France, The United Kingdom and Japan.
