Sicilian artists convey their love for their homeland in the Mosta exhibition

A mixed media exhibition by Sicilian artists Corrado Iozia and Benedetto Strano is currently being held at the Razzett tal-Markiż in Mosta.

The two artists are from the picturesque village of Zafferana Etnea, a town in Catania, Sicily and both convey their love for their island in the exhibition titled I love Sicily.

The works on display at the exhibition are mainly oil paintings of typical Sicilian landscapes, including those showing the artists’ fascination with Mount Etna, which features in a number of works.

Iozia has already exhibited in Malta and Gozo. Indeed, he is exhibiting for the eighth time at the cultural center of Mosta.

Although he presents landscape paintings on canvas here, he specializes in traditional antique-style engraving and hammering on brass sheets, some of which he colors some and leaves others in raw brass. Iozia is the president of the Associazione Artistico-Culturale Giuseppe Sciuti in Zafferana Etnea.

Strano is also a member of this artistic association.

The opening hours are Monday to Saturday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Free entry.
