Berkeley College is presenting the artwork of the Angelo Marfisi at its Midtown Manhattan Gallery, 3 East 43rd Street, New York City. The exhibit is on display from July 1 through 31—Mondays through Fridays—from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm and on Saturdays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. An artist’s reception is planned for Wednesday, July 13 from 5:30 to 7:00 pm.
Born in Italy in a small town on the coast of the Adriatic Sea, Mr. Marfisi studied at the Art Institute in Lanciano, Italy, and the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, Italy. He came to the United States with a goal to improve his craft, eventually deciding to continue his education at the School of Visual Art, Art Students League and New York University—all in New York City.
“I love to experiment and started working with objects and blinding color art until I found what I was unconsciously looking for,” said Mr. Marfisi. “Now I felt I had a direction and that was the path I took.” Most of his projects incorporate very unusual objects, extreme bright colors and concentric sequences. They are always covered with acrylic resins that enhance the brilliance and should preserve them for a lifetime.
Robert Keiber, Curator, Berkeley College Midtown Manhattan and Brooklyn Galleries, said, “Mr. Marfisi is an exciting and unusual artist. I know that any visitors who come to the exhibit will find themselves intrigued with his work.”
For more information about the exhibit, e-mail Mr. Keiber at rjk@BerkeleyCollege.edu or call 212-252-2065.
