The Gallery Della-Piana is always searching for ways to promote our name and our Artists. An opportunity to see fine art and original illustration in the 'living environment', so to speak, came with an invitation from the curators of the Wenham Museum.
As if "nothing much to do..." I've put my newly decorated Kitchen on the HOUSE-TOUR on Saturday, October 2nd, from 11 AM to 4PM. The fund-raising project by the Wenham Museum will feature 9 Kitchens from Wenham, Hamilton, Beverly, and Manchester-by-the-Sea, for a $15.oo tax-deductable ticket. Go to wenhammuseum.org, or call 978-468-2377.
What a project!! Having the Museum deadline has compelled me to do it, at last...Every square inch of the kitchen, featuring new paint, new shelving, new art, and a treasury of tender cooking objects from my own Grandmother's kitchen...her 100 year old pasta rolling pin, ravioli cutter, pizzelle-maker. (and how old IS that bottle of Abruzzi "Centerba" apertivo?)
My personal collection of art on view includes works from Alyssa Watters, Alan Witschonke, Katie Stannard, Paul Davis, David Levine, David Itchkawich, Fred Lynch, Chan Invathong, Caroline Baganol, Kathy Speranza, Niho Kozuru, Frank Valliere, and Courtney McGlynn, as well as Sculptures by Leandro Della Piana, Arcangelo Cascieri, Reno Pisano.
The banquet room will be set for a harvest holiday, and the bright new entry vestibule will feature paintings from some of the artists the Gallery represents...Eva Cincotta and more Alyssa Watters. We report that during the renovations, as Everything from the kichen was removed to the banquet room, it looked frighteningly like those rooms in 'Hoarders'...so I REALLY edited as it went back. Honest!
