You are cordially invited to an art exhibit and sale. The Del Ray Artisans Exhibit for the month of September theme is 'Retakes & Transformations . . . Art From Everyday Life' - September 2 - October 2, 2011. The Del Ray Artisans Gallery is located at 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, VA., 22301-1124. Opening reception is Friday, September 2, 7 - 10 p.m. John G. Fantucchio will be there for the reception. John will have two paintings - one is titled 'Phil and Mac,' and the other is titled ' The Edge of Truth.' These have two completely different approaches and different media, and both are thought-provoking and haunting paintings. Other paintings by Del Ray artists will also be on exhibit and for sale. Bring a friend. Mouth-watering food and drink will be served. A unique opportunity to meet other patrons of the arts, and a good time to talk with John and ask him questions about his works. If you're not able to attend the reception, John will also make a special appearance on Sunday, September 18, 12:30 - 3:30. Now is the time to corner him on the hows and meanings of his works. Looking forward to seeing you there.
You are cordially invited to the 41st Annual Labor Day Art Show at Glen Echo Park in the Spanish Ballroom, 7300 MacArthur Boulevard, Glen Echo, Maryland 20812. John G. Fantucchio will be there Sunday, September 4, 2011, between 12 and 3 p.m. John will have two paintings on exhibit. One is titled 'Aerea Fresca,' a large mixed media painting; the other is also a mixed media, titled 'Ayuh, Maine.' These will both give you a breath of fresh air, and you'll want to touch the beautifully textured surface - but don't! John says 'touch with your eyes only.' They are not behind glass, and both are appropriately framed. You will find John in the Spanish Ballroom exhibit hall at Glen Echo Park. If you don't remember what John looks like, he's about 6 feet tall, losing his hair, and has a gray beard - very much like Monte Woolley in the old time movie ' The Man Who Came To Dinner.' Refreshments may be purchased outside the ballroom, and if you want to relax, you can always jump on to the carousel. You may bring a picnic lunch - there are picnic tables. Great for kids and the young at heart. Bring a camera. Many other paintings by local artists will be on display. This is a good time to see John and talk art with him. If you haven't been to Glen Echo before, or if it's been a while, bring your spouse and kids, a friend - you owe yourself a nice cool day off. Looking forward to seeing you there.
