The BIG Picture Gallery Talk with Dr. Charles A. Riley, II Ph.D
“I was so taken the minute I saw it...an obvious award of excellence...it uses the sheet so beautifully...look at the way in which the dynamism of that flesh is...it reminded me of one of my favorite artists, Lucian Freud...talk about the correlation between power and physical scale!”
The Atelier at Flowerfield's latest exhibit highlights young talent
“For the past three years, the Atelier at Flowefield has buzzed with activity. Artists of all skill levels come to the Saint James art studio to create, learn, and connect with others through classes, studio time, social events, art history lectures, and exhibits. ”
“LOS ANGELES, CA (August 17th, 2019)-- Small Green Door Presents SCOPE, an exhibition of paintings by New-York-based artist Joseph Santarpia that reconsiders the fraught, often permeable boundary conditions of the human body in its relation to the external world. ”
Fine Art Shippers is pleased to introduce Joseph Santarpia. This young and talented artist who is currently in the Master of Fine Arts program at the State University of New York at Stony Brook is, without a doubt, a rising star of contemporary art. His works that question the reality of being human have already been shown in many galleries across the state of New York, and they continue to garner the attention of the art community.
De Luca said Santarpia — who will also exhibit two additional alcohol ink pieces in the show — was a clear standout, particularly “Violet II.”
“It was really unusual but also very beautiful,” the juror said. “It just spoke loudly to me about his ability to explore new ways of making art with the given theme of ink, and going abstract. You have to be a very skilled artist in a classical way in order to be a good abstract painter. I think he really accomplished that, and I see a lot of positive energy out of the work.”
The Art League of Long Island's latest juried art exhibition invited artists from the Long Island region to submit large pieces into its latest juried exhibit. Out of 259 works submitted by 115 artists, 39 works were selected by juror Bruce Lieberman. Of the 39 works on display in the gallery, six were singled out for awards.
