“Impressions of Nature”
A new collection of paintings by Oxford artist Angelo Perrone featuring the changing seasons of New England will be on display at the Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery from June 30 through August 11. There will be an opening reception from 12 to 2 PM on Saturday, June 30.
While Perrone has been painting in mixed media for over 60 years, he is constantly searching for new ways to celebrate his love of natural beauty. Much of the new collection called “Impressions of Nature” is more modern in nature with brush strokes that are oriental in flavor stemming from his much acclaimed ability as a calligraphist.
Perrone grew up in Harlem and graduated from Cooper Union Art School. He won a scholarship to study painting at Oxford University in England and pursued a career as a book designer and art director at Reader’s Digest where he worked for 38 years. He has had several solo shows and his paintings are in private collections throughout the US and Europe.
