Guests will have the opportunity to meet Aldo Loungo from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM on Saturday, July 22 and from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM on Sunday, July 23, 2017.
Born in Argentina of Italian heritage, Aldo Luongo graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires. In the â€˜70s, he had his first major success with multiple reproductions of his black and white drawings. Released to great critical acclaim and garnering huge commercial success, the art put him on the map as a major international artist. Luongo has continued his reign at the top of the contemporary art world for almost four decades. From his acrylics to his fine art prints, all of Aldo Luongoâ€™s exquisite art embodies the same sense of fluidity and intensity, the result of a true artist engaged in the passionate process of creation. His bold, impressionistic style has often been referred to as â€œRomance on Canvas.â€ Central to all of Luongo's paintings is the balance between memory and hope, sorrow and humor, freedom and control. Aldo Luongo's artwork captures more than just the viewers gazeâ€¦it echoes the experiences of life lived to the fullest.
â€œReflections of Summerâ€ opens at Ocean Galleries on Friday, July 21 and is on display through Wednesday, July 26 with all artwork available for acquisition. Exhibit hours are 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM daily.
