Please join us at Avenue 50 Studio for this Opening Night Reception: Saturday, April 10, 2010 from 7-10 in tandem with NELAs Second Saturday Art Night, April 10
The Avenue 50 Studio is proud to present Horizons, an exhibition of works by contemporary artists Martin Charlot and Raoul De la Sota. The exhibit opens with an artists' reception on Saturday evening, April 10, 2010 from 7 to 10 p.m. and closes on Sunday, May 2, 2010.
Martin Charlot, son of the renowned artist and muralist, Jean Charlot, is an oil painter and a muralist working in the fresco tradition. Taught by his father, Martin's careful draftsmanship and skillful color expresses a humanist spirituality grounded in earthiness. His work speaks to life reborn; the life of earth and of humanity. His love of flora and fauna is exhibited in his lushfully surreal landscapes, meant to be lingered over like an intensely flavored feast.
Raoul De la Sota's work reflects his beliefs in ancient cultures and civilizations as they relate to cosmic imagery. Mystical and dreamy, De la Sota's work points our eyes skyward in search of his Mayan nebulas and constellations. De la Sota's imaginative colors reinvigorates and deepens our interest in the universe as cosmic creator. At the same time, he deals with ecological matters in terms of ancient ideas as well as contemporary warnings.
Please join us on Saturday, March 10, 2010 for the opening night reception of Horizons - as far, and farther, than the eye can see.
