Decatur, GA 30030
WHEN: Saturday, March 14, 2009
5:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
DETAILS: “WILD THINGS” This reception for two distinctly unique artists is going to be WILD!
Their styles and subjects embrace nature, interpretive abstract themes and palettes.
Robert Amato hails from New York, where he received extensive training from the State University College of Buffalo Art Education School. Robert graduated in 1978 at the top of his painting class after intensive training and merit. His artwork was recently selected for the poster and prints of the 2009 Sandy Springs Cycling Challenge. His works are reminiscent of Van Gogh’s saturated color and texture. He works exclusively in oils on plastic surfaces.
MJ Villanueva is a painter of contemporary abstract works on canvas. He was educated at the University of Hawaii, receiving degrees in education and culinary arts. His training in food preparation taught him the importance of color and texture, as evidenced in the delicious quality of his artwork. His current “guitar series” shows indications of Picasso influence, with a twist for the new generation.
Refreshments and music will be provided. Free to attend.
The Decatur Market & Gallery is a co-operative gallery for emerging artists and unique artisans of Georgia.
Great food and of course Great art!
Hope to see you there!
