Thank you to all that came out to last night’s opening of The Photography Show presented by AIPAD! We had a wonderful time celebrating with you. If you weren’t able to make the opening last night the fair runs through Sunday, April 17th and you are able to purchase tickets here.
We are excited to be premiering work by new gallery artist, Francesco Pergolesi in our booth 204. Francesco Pergolesi was raised in Spoleto, a small Italian village filled with artisan shops and small businesses. Now splitting his time between Spoleto and Barcelona, Pergolesi creates photographic tableaus inspired by memories from his past: narrow cobblestone streets, the sound of a hammer coming from the open door of a shoemaker; the smell of fresh bread from a baker, the steady beat of a sewing machine from an open window, the smell of old paper in a used bookstore. In Pergolesi’s world, these sights and smells drive his art making, as he seeks to preserve the past, before big-box and chain stores arrive.
Pergolesi’s first American exhibition will soon open at the gallery, Heroes, will be on view May 6 – July 1, 2016.
