Impressions in Nature-works by Angelo Perrone

Paintings by local artist, Angelo Perrone will be on display at The 550 Gallery and Studios in Bethlehem, CT throughout the month of March. The show begins March 14th and will run through March 28th.  An opening reception will be held on Saturday, March 14th from 6-9 pm as well as an Artist Talk to close the show on Saturday, March 28th from 4-6 pm.  This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Angelo Perrone has been painting in mixed media for the last 60 years.  His recent studies called “Impressions of Nature” celebrate his love of natural beauty.  His paintings show the changes of seasons in our New England area. A larger part of his paintings are more modern in nature.  When viewing his paintings, you can almost imagine yourself in the scene. The brush strokes used in various paintings of his are oriental in flavor; stemming from his much acclaimed ability as a calligraphist. His paintings serve as a visual vehicle to transport you to another time and place, striking a pleasant memory, or to spark a factious and imaginary experience.
