Women of Vision: 2012 Lilliana S. Didovic, Night, at Hidden River Gallery
“I knew Debra Leigh Scott years ago since she was running Enclave Gallery and she picked me as one of the Da Vinci Art Alliance artists to show in an exhibit. Since then we keep seeing each other at different events and she sent me an e-mail and invited me to be part of this show. I submitted some of my pieces, there is nine pieces all together here, which is good.” Lilliana S. Didovic is prolific, working multiple canvasses with paint and mixed media, DoN wondered what she’s working on now? “Just last night we had a fabulous book party at Smile Gallery for Her Philadelphia Tales, The Art of Lilliana S. Didovic! It was a really great success. My new pieces are related to South Street, some sparkling with mirrors and rhinestone. Now I’m having a related exhibit at the Lantern Theater related to love and loss, Romeo and Juliet. Recently, in Millville NJ, I’m part of HERSTORY 2012: Ladies of Leonardo.”

DoN commented that Lilliana has two Women’s History shows running simultaneously. “I think all month’s should be dedicated to women!”, said Lilliana laughing. “They have such an important part of history of the world. Taking care of everybody in the world. Ha, ha, ha!” DoN persisted, “As someone who’s seen a lot more of the world than most Philadelphian’s, our people are famous for never leaving their own neighborhoods, you have lived in many, many places what do you see from women artists today?” Lilliana said, “Women are just as productive as a man, there is no difference, to be motivated in different ways. I’m not just separating women from men because a lot of men’s art is not different than the women. Women in their mind are being men and men in their mind are being women and then men do with men in their mind and women do with women in their mind. Everything is all around, whatever way you’re motivated, you’re making your art.”
