Artist’s work chosen for international exhibition – Hamilton County Reporter


Selected Works by Kris Fiore Hanahan for Sale in Carmel, Fishers, Zionsville

The work of Indianapolis-based artist Kris Fiore Hanahan ADRI, was selected for Fusion Art’s fourth annual Women Artists Online Art Exhibition. The work was inspired and commissioned by bestselling author Adriana Trigiani.

ADRI was a study where a vision came from,” Hanahan said. “I have followed Adriana Trigiani’s career for over 30 years. I’ve seen her grow and flourish – as a woman, as a designer, as an Italian American, as a Catholic, and as a graduate of Saint Mary’s College. She has always remained true to her roots. In this case, ADRI includes her favorite colors and the fleur-de-lis, an important symbol in Italy. It also represents his interest in the Holy Trinity, the lines of the interior furnishings and the transparency of the stained glass windows. The rectangles symbolize the books that are his passion and his gift to so many people. More than anything, she loves it, and that’s what matters most to me.

Kris says being selected for the Palm Springs exhibit is an integral part of her work as an artist. “Being inspired by Adriana and commissioning a piece from her is a thrill and an honor in itself, and then having her piece selected means so much. Add to that the ability to transcend borders and compete with artists from 26 other countries, c is a privilege.
