2nd Floor Gallery - Town Hall
Rosemary (Ro) Hocking-Sanzari takes inspiration from travels abroad and at home - from the foothills of Tuscany to the trails of Teatown Lake Reservation in Westchester County. Often using photographs to enhance memory, Ro paints in an impressionistic style that approaches realism. Oil is her medium. Though largely self-taught, she has taken classes in oil painting from Ferris Parker in Montclair, NJ and William McCarthy in Farnese, Italy. She is now studying portrait drawing with Andrew Lattimore at the Westchester Center for the Arts.
Recently retired, after a more than 45 year career in housing and community development and planning, Ro lives in Ossining with her husband Paul Sanzari, a retired architect. She is a member of the Ossining Arts Council and has exhibited with them at the Ossining Library and at Westchester Collaborative Theater.
