From March 1 to April 3, 2018, Sorelle Gallery Fine Art will present OPALINE: Works by Teodora Guererra and Dmitri Wright. A designer vignette, STATEMENT PIECES by I.M. Smitten, will accompany the exhibit. The opening reception will be held on March 1 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Teodora Guererra’s abstract artistic vision evolved throughout time spent painting and teaching in Fairfield County, Connecticut; Tucson, Arizona; and upstate New York. Arizona’s naturally radiant landscape and arid climate led her to experiment with rich under-painting and vivid color. The shifting East Coast seasons inspired her dripping and staining techniques. Important artistic influences include Pat Steir and Morris Louis.
Dmitri Wright is a painter, master art instructor, inspirational speaker and poet. His classical academic training in the foundations used by the Renaissance and Impressionist masters is evident in his work as an American Expressionist Impressionist. His melodic brushstrokes and unexpected palette are results of extensive plein air painting in Italy’s Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria, France’s Provence Cote d’Azur and New England’s coastline. Affluent study at Cooper Union, Brooklyn Museum Art School and Newark School of Fine & Industrial Arts. Strong artistic mentors (Samuel Brecher, Rueben Tam, Wolf Kahn and Will Barnet) also influence his lyrical landscape paintings.
From mid-century modern and contemporary to transitional styles, I.M. Smitten brings their unique furnishings and rare findings of the world. They include hand-carvings, doors and shutters that are blended with modern materials to form custom cabinetry, unique walls and dividers, interior and sliding doors, accent tables and artisan headboards.
Sorelle Gallery Fine Art specializes in a wide variety of contemporary, modern and traditional art from more than 40 established artists. The gallery offers exhibitions, lectures and demonstrations.
