Gallery Mar Artist Reception: “Quizzical Whimsy” with Fred Calleri

August 7, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Wit, whimsy, and love—Fred Calleri’s oil paintings remind us of a simpler time, exuding the magical. Each of Mr. Calleri’s narrative artwork tells a story about who we are, and where we have been. Young love, the connection between family and dear friends, and a sense of adventure are present in his figurative paintings. Mr. Calleri is inspired by traditional portraiture in oil paint—the artists Sargent, Vermeer, and Sorolla, but creates his own interesting “twist” on what we typically define as portraiture. The results are enchanting. Join us in welcoming the artist to Utah and come share a snow cone with friends at our opening night reception. The artist will be in attendance.
