Andrea Petitto: Wind & Sand

24 Jun – 06 Aug 2010

Opening June 24th and on view until July 23rd, the Copley Society of art's newest exhibition in the Red Room Gallery, Wind and Sand, features the work of artist Andrea Petitto. 

Andrea Petitto's serene oil paintings feature the dunes of outer Cape Cod, particularly the dunes in Truro and Provincetown.  With extensive use of the palette knife, Petitto aims to create scenes in which the viewer can hear and feel the wind that sculpted the sand into dunes.  These pieces are representational but express the essentials of the subject with a minimum of detail.

An opening reception will be held on Thursday, June 24th from 5:30 to 7:30pm at the Co|So gallery at 158 Newbury Street in Boston.  All members are admitted free of charge, while non-members are asked to contribute $10 to support gallery programming.
