Anthony Santomauro:“Omnipresence of Emotion”
Patrons' Gallery, October 26, 2014 - November 01, 2014

Emotions can be found everywhere!

Through pastels and acrylics these vibrant portrayals allow you to form an intense emotional attachment to each subject, whether it is a hippo, a dancer, or just a landscape.

Anthony Santomauro was born in New York City and has resided in Fairfield, CT since 1976. He has been a practicing artist for over 40 years, working in pastels, charcoal, and  acrylics. His professional art career began in 1975 when he received First Prize in the Juried Annual Exhibit of The Sumter South Carolina Artist Guild with “Massimo” followed be a One Man Exhibition of his works. Thereafter he was awarded prizes in the Annual Exhibit of the South Carolina State Fair, Sumter Iris Festival , 9th Young Artist Association of Fairfield  Exhibit, and several Connecticut Classic Artists Annual Exhibits.

His works are in many private collections in the United States, Canada and the US Virgin Islands. Additionally his religious works are in the collections of St. Joseph Manor, Trumbull, CT and Maryknoll Missionaries, Maryknoll, New York.
 Anthony Santomauro is a realistic artist whose detailed pastels, highly technical drawings and strong yet sensitive paintings merge feelings with visual reality. He uses portraits of humans and animals to explore the variety and intensity of the human emotional experience. The observers are initially engaged by the exquisitely beautiful realistic details of each piece, but eventually are involved in an intense relationship which draws them into the domain and creativity of the artist’s mind. Whether it is beauty, rage, melancholy, malevolence or goodness, they are emerged into the world, power and emotion of each of his creations.

Exhibit Hours: Mon-Fri, 1-6pm, Sat-Sun 1-5pm.
