On Saturday, Dec. 1, the Davis Gallery, 200 Boston Post Road, will host an Opening Reception for impressionist artist, Carol Raccio from 1 – 4 p.m.
Raccio’s art exhibit “Ancient Cities,” will feature various types of media, such as oil paintings, water colors, portraiture and printmaking. She expresses her ideas skillfully, as you will see portrayed in her excellent monotype prints.
Her illusionistic visions of ancient places are unique and colorful, beautifully captured in her prints. Mosaic images, reminiscent of vernacular forms are artfully composed with color, depth and texture to develop the view. Unique irregularities, naturally incurred through the process of creating monotype prints, are inherent of the finished piece and often enjoyed by the artist as unplanned events.
Raccio has studied with Charles Gruppe, Frank Cavino, Barbara Harder and Peter Ziou.
She has served as the former president of the Orange Arts Guild and as former Vice President of the Fairfield Classical Arts Guild to which was a charter member.
Collectively, Raccio’s works are included in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and Europe.
Carol Raccio’s attractively unique works are definitely worth a visit to the Davis Gallery. Her paintings and monotypes will be exhibited in the main gallery starting on her Opening Reception this Saturday, and will remain on display through Jan. 5, 2013. Many of her works will then be shown in the ‘Gallery’s, “Past Presented” Wing, where additional works from prior artists also will be on display, many featuring artfully pictured homes, local scenes, brightly colored floral arrangements, many with touches of abstract and imagination, such as several pieces of the highly detailed watercolors of young artist, Saiyara Fahmi, the local artist shown in November.
A visit to the Davis Gallery, 200 Boston Post Road is free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and Saturday until 4 p.m.
The Davis Gallery is affiliated with VideoLab in Orange and is located in the VideoLab Vestibule.
