Bocce Art


Eleven artists working with the idea of spheres in motion will exhibit their work in the fun new
exhibit Bocce Balls and Other Human Propelled Spheres” at the Benicia Public Library. Artist Bodil Fox was inspired by the energy of the bocce ball games at the courts located next to the Library when she began playing the game a year ago. She decided to curate a show that would tap into this excitement. Artists living or exhibiting in Benicia working in metal, fiber, photography, glass, painting, ceramics, wood, concrete and kinetic art are creating artworks specifically for this exhibit.

The artists in this exciting exhibit are:

  • Nikki Basch-Davis
  • Hedi Desuyo
  • Angela Fortain
  • Bodil Fox (Alternative Bocce Champs)
  • Larnie Fox (Alternative Bocce Champs)
  • Brian Giambastiani
