Please join us on Friday, September 20 from 5-9:00 pm when the Rossoni Gallery in association with Mixed Media Publicity | Promotions, will host an exhibit of the most recent works of art by Rhode Island resident and RISD graduate Vincent Castaldi.
How are you drawn to a work of art? Do you gravitate toward bright colors or soft tones? Will the size or structure of a piece command your attention ? Sometimes, like magic a piece captures your imagination–such are the works of Vincent Castaldi.
Vincent will be exhibiting some of his modestly sized earlier works, oil pastel on paper, matted and framed and some of his new works which are oil pastels painted on larger stretched canvases.
The subject matter of his earlier work is figurative and illustrative often depicting fantastical dreamlike characters that seem to invite you into their story. The newer works are figurative as well but lean toward abstraction with an evolving theme — a metamorphosis of one’s soul.
I invite you to come see for yourself on the 20th. If you cannot make it, please visit another day — show will run until October 20.
After working many years as a musician and designer, and loving most every minute of it, I felt it was time to expand a bit and spill over into another passion of mine-fine art.
Through the years I have been an incredible admirer of the works of my peers–-how they think, create and express themselves through song, on paper, canvas and other media.
Rossoni Gallery is my invitation to many of these talented artists to show the community what it is they do, why they do what they do, and how it may of interest to them.
So, I hope you will sign our mailing list and hope you will attend one of our events and share your thoughts on art, music and culture.
