Armondo Dellasanta: A Retrospective Opening
September 6, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Armondo Dellasanta: A Retrospective is the first exhibition showcasing four distinct collections of his work since his death in 2010: Binghamton, New York City, Susquehanna, and Floral. The exhibition, courtesy of the Estate of Armondo Dellasanta, is in memory of a beloved artist who continued to create stunning works with passion well into his 90s.
Known as the “Binghamton’s Van Gogh” and “urban Monet”, Armondo Dellasanta was arguably the most renowned impressionist in Binghamton, NY. Though deeply influenced by French and American Impressionism and The Ashcan School, Armondo began to use customized palette knives to paint, giving his work a unique look and finish. Growing up as a Binghamton native in an immigrant family, Armondo developed a keen observational sensibility while teaching himself to paint. He was also a World War II veteran where he passed the time by doing drawings in Germany. He translated these observations, with great technical skill, into his oil paintings, capturing the collective and precious memories of the local and regional cityscapes.
This exhibition will be on view in Artisan Gallery at 95 Court Street in Binghamton from Sept. 5th to Sept. 28th, and it’s opening reception will be held Sept. 6th from 6PM to 9PM.
