Bethpage, N.Y. (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
Internationally-renowned expressionist Giovanni DeCunto and his exhibit “The Spirit & The Modern” will come to a close at a final, invitation-only event at Grumman Gallery in Bethpage, Long Island from 6-9pm on Thursday, March 13th, 2014.
“The Spirit & The Modern" arrived exclusively at Grumman Gallery, in Bethpage, Long Island, in October 2013. The exhibit explored the relationship between our spiritual nature and our obsession with pop culture, the afterlife and technology.
"We are in an important age; this technological revolution. I am a classicist and art is my medium, but I can see that our belief in different things; religion, language, etc. is changing. Facebook has made the way we communicate universal. And for that, Facebook can be considered a new religion," DeCunto said.
Asia Lee's landscape collection “Reflections of Our Own Essence” is also showing with Grumman Gallery. Lee’s work focuses on the everyday moments most of us leave behind, and acts as a complement to DeCunto’s exhibit.
Vanessa Ferrelli, owner of Grumman Gallery said, “’The Spirit & The Modern' is provoking, while Asia Lee's landscapes show us the beauty of the non-digital. Those are two unique artistic experiences," said Ferrelli.
For DeCunto, it was an opportunity to add another achievement to his already lengthy resume. "It was a tremendous blessing to have Giovanni DeCunto, an American master, open our Gallery," said Ferrelli. She continued, “And the success of Grumman Gallery is due in part to Giovanni, but also to Asia Lee, Wendy Csonka, Elegant Affairs and all of Nassau County.”
"The Spirit & The Modern" opened in October and ends this month. “Reflections of Our Own Essence” will continue to show throughout the year.
The private, invitation-only event is Thursday, March 13th from 6-9pm.
Grumman Gallery is showing the collections by appointment-only. For media inquiries or to schedule a viewing, contact: Stephanie Arcabascio at 917-387-7277.
