BERKELEY COLLEGE PRESENTS THE ARTWORK OF LINDA BUTTI –

EMOTIONAL, SENSATIONAL AND INTUITIVE    

Berkeley College is exhibiting the artwork of Linda Butti at its New York City Midtown Gallery, First Floor Lobby, 3 East 43rd Street. This exhibit is on display from April 3 through 30 – Monday through Friday – from 9:00 am to 7:30 pm and on Saturdays from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm. An artist’s reception will be held on Thursday, April 4, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm.

Ms. Butti is a New York based artist who received both a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Brooklyn College.  She also has a doctoral equivalency in Art from the City University of New York. 

“I have been painting since I was a child,” said Ms. Butti.  “I work continuously on various art pieces and feel I have no choice but to express myself through my work.  It is both a blessing and a curse as my life as an artist brings with it intense feelings to everything.”  She believes her artwork stems from a private place where a combination of emotions, sensations and intuitions rule.       

Her solo exhibits include St. John’s University, Staten Island, NY; Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts, Little Falls, NY; Elaine Benson Gallery, Bridgehampton, NY; Whitehall  Gallery, New York, NY; and Princeton University League Gallery, NJ.  In 2009, she had a solo show at Berkeley College, New York City Midtown Gallery.   Ms. Butti has exhibited in more than 200 juried group shows nationally and internationally, including Korea and China. 

Ms. Butti is a member of Women in the Arts and the American Society of Contemporary Artists, both in New York City.  She is the recipient of numerous art awards, and seven New York State Council on the Arts grants.  She also was elected Woman of the Year by the National Organization of Italian-American Women (1992) and is included in Who’s Who of American Art.
