Silverio to show at Unity’s Craig Gallery

Nov 11, 2012
“Four Hi” is part of John Silverio’s show opening Friday, Nov. 16 at Unity College’s Leonard R. Craig Gallery.

Unity — "Living Geometry," an exhibit of paintings and drawings by John Silverio of Lincolnville will open with a 5 to 7 p.m. reception Friday, Nov. 16 at the Leonard R. Craig Gallery at Unity College Centre for the Performing Arts, 42 Depot St. The opening is free and open to the general public. Light refreshments will be provided.

Silverio’s recent paintings and drawings are compositions of shapes derived from roof and pyramid forms that provide a vehicle to explore form, shadow and color in a direct way. The work looks at progressions employing the Fibonacci Series and the Golden Mean. The surface texture of the watercolors is often deeply granulated, enriching the luminosity of the color.

Silverio studied architecture at Rhode Island School of Design, participating in the European Honors Program in Rome. He also studied with Louis Kahn at the University of Pennsylvania. He has painted and drawn throughout his life. He recently showed at the Caldbeck Gallery in Rockland and his work has been shown at the University of Maine, the College of the Atlantic, Open-space Gallery, Pine Tree Shop Gallery and Åarhus Gallery. He is the author of three books on architecture that are available on For more information, visit or
