Paintings by Rick Rotante

This is one of those rare its about me sorta posts.  I curated the Route 66 Gallery’s “The Body Electric” show that runs 8/1 – 8/31/09.

Artists from throughout the LA Metro area (but primarily the San Gabriel Valley) submitted work for consideration in “The Body Electric”.  The styles of painting vary from the real to the impressionist to they abstractionist.   All are beautifully done, but those by Rick Rotante were those that really grabbed my attention.   Rick submitted a series of 6 “bath studies” that are done in a very romantic, impressionist style.

The opening reception is Saturday from 6-9 PM with light refreshments being served up.  The promise of belly dancers to lighten up the gallery is promised to start at 7PM.
