Linda Fantuzzo’s childhood home is Endicott, New York. While in high school, Linda knew she wanted to be a painter and chose to study the classical techniques of painting and graphics at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, Pa. 1968-1973. After her formal training she worked non-objectively in various media for over 10 years. She then decided to return to painting imagery of landscape, interiors, structures and still life. Linda considers herself a general painter. It is the quality of light and atmosphere that permeates her work no matter the subject.
Linda and her husband, Edward Warmuth, reside in Mt. Pleasant. She works full time in her downtown Charleston studio in the college district. Fantuzzo is active within the arts community. She was invited to serve on the panel for the SC State Arts Commission Acquisitions Committee for two years. She has served on the Advisory Board for The Halsey Institute and the steering committee for the Trident Region Arts & Culture Plan. Linda has been a juror for the Charleston City Art Gallery, the Charleston Artists League and the public library. In 2000, Fantuzzo co-curated an exhibition titled “Sehnsucht, The Art of Pati Croffead”, and in 2002, she was the project director for “Larger Than Life: A Second Story Show” which was sponsored by the Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs. The exhibition was featured during the Piccolo Spoleto Festival.
Fantuzzo has shown her work in numerous solo exhibitions throughout her career. Her paintings are represented in the collections of the Greenville County Museum, SC, the Gibbes Museum, Charleston, SC; the South Carolina State Arts Commission Collection; The Burroughs –Chapin Museum, Myrtle Beach, SC; the River Course and Cassique Golf Clubs of Kiawah, SC; and the Doonbeg Golf Club, County Clare, Ireland. Her paintings are represented in many public, corporate and private collections through out the US and Europe.
