Contemporary Florentine Realism

Mia Madre by Elena Arcangeli.

Mia Madre by Elena Arcangeli.

Tomorrow is the vernissage for the first show I’ve ever ‘curated’ (I actually chose the artists, but not necessarily the pieces). There is a lot of excellent work on display from the teachers and alumni of the three traditional painting schools here: The Angel Academy of Art, Charles H. Cecil Studios, and the Florence Academy of Art.

The opening will be from 6 to 8pm at the Cami Gallery so if you’re in the neighborhood please stop by. The address is via della Condotta 36r:

Here are some images from the show:

Update: Here is a very short time-lapse film of the evening, you can use pause to see frames individually (sorry for the lazy photography, but I didn’t want to run around with a camera all night).

Cami Vernissage

Thanks to everyone who came, we had a huge turn-out. Everyone was very complimentary about the work and the space (and the wine), and we even managed to sell some paintings despite the fact you could barely move around inside the gallery. Below are some images from the evening, and the work can be seen on the Cami gallery website.

I wasn’t really drinking 3 glasses of wine at the same time.

Update: Here is a short video of the show.
