Maltese-American artist Jean Busuttil Zaleski of New York will be exhibiting her works at St James Cavalier from May 4 to June 23.
Originally from Birkirkara, Jean had emigrated to America with her family at the age of eight.
Most of the works were inspired by her discoveries while exploring Malta during her many visits and others were inspired by memories of her childhood here.
Among the highlights of her career were an invitation to the White House by former President Jimmy Carter and receiving the `Susan B. Anthony Award` for painting from the National Organisation of Women in 1986, in New York City Hall.
Busuttil Zaleski has been a resident Fellow of the Virginia Centre for the Creative Arts since 1975 and has been instrumental in establishing a vital link between the centre, the University of Malta and St James Cavalier.
The link enabled the launch of an artists` exchange programme last summer.
