“OBSCURA”

OCTOBER 4- NOVEMBER 11

ARTIST RECEPTION: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 7TH 5-8 PM

ART HOP, OCTOBER 5TH  & NOVEMBER 2ND

1821 Gallery & Studios is excited to be presenting a completely new body of work by local artist and instructor Adam Longatti titled “Obscura”. This collection is a resonance of experiences gleamed from his life experiences in the Central Valley of California. Some paintings are imagined without visual references; some are from direct observation and physical experience; and some are a combination of both. But each has a non-direct view. A quote from Vincent Van Gough moved him early in his painting life, “Keep the obvious vague, exaggerate the essentials.” Without knowing intent this came out in this body of work; meaning, each one has a truth, a narration that has been tucked gently into the colors and forms of each contained space. The obvious is obscured.

Also for the October 5th Art Hop Anne Whitehurst and her band Low Noon will entertain us.

We look forward to seeing you!
