Running through My Mind

Location: Mercato 9115 Strada Place, #5130

09/01/2022 - 09/22/2022

Mauro Bonaventura dialogues with glass souls as he does with a friend, a traveling companion, talking about his own emotions and the sensations that come to him.

Mauro’s sculptures are often perfect spheres, created from a tangle of flexible colored glass threads that recall ocean waves, electrical circuits, or the branchings of nerve cells.

These colored cages contain a human figure, flexible and harmonious in its attempt to free itself from the tangle of threads. Mauro draws our attention to the interconnectedness of the world of the ocean, the human world outside, and the world inside our brain. There are the mysterious and powerful synapses in our minds, the relationships between human beings, and the electrical signals inside the ocean that connect all if its dwellers.

Sunburns and Sharks

Location: Mercato 9115 Strada Place, #5130

10/01/2022 - 10/22/2022

Sunburns and Sharks exhibit with Rustem Stahurski, Alexander Gorbikov, and Mikhail Shapovalenko. The latest census data reveals that people living near the sea are happier than those inland. Getting a lungful of sea air and sand between the toes, inevitable sunburns, occasional sharks… Florida!!!

Frozen Moments exhibit of gravity-defying resin-glass sculptures by the ever inventive Annalu.

Location: Mercato 9115 Strada Place, #5130

10/25/2022 - 11/13/2022

Fresh, changeable and direct, Annalu’s art knows how to touch the spectator’s inner chords provoking the deepest sensations and recalling ancestral emotions.

The major focus of her works is on the theme of water, primeval central element of life. Water is the origin of all things: everything is made of water, and everything returns to water.

In the works of the Artist there is a sense of metamorphosis, in pas­sing, of evolution as a sort of journey between different states, between different realities, a spirit of inquiry that shares some typical aspects of the science of alchemy.

Annalu is capable of assembling in­congruent elements such as resins and paper, bark and fiberglass, bi­tumen and sand, cement and roots, to create new realities, suspended worlds where alchemy is lightness.

01/03/2023 - 01/17/2023

Georgy Kurasov is an artist of striking individuality in both his thought patterns and his painting and sculpture style. Intricate, sensual, and executed with mathematical precision, his works transport the viewer into his perfect fantasy world.

Georgy and Zina have never been apart, after meeting nearly 50 years ago. This beautiful love story has lasted for over a quarter of a century. Unusually beautiful Zina is not only Georgy’s muse, but a dream-model. He paints only Zina, he is inspired only by her, he dedicates to her his mortal existence and his immortal art.

Crème Brule and Champagne – Vistas of French Cities and Country Side exhibit of two renowned French artists Laurent Parcelier and Herve Lenouvel.

Meanwhile Herve Lenouvel’s gem-colored mountains and forests of the rugged Brittany and Northern France stun with their powerful majesty.

Location: Mercato 9115 Strada Place, #5130

03/20/2023 - 04/08/2023

Beloved artist Joanne Rafferty creates multidimensional abstract mixed-media paintings from a multitude of seemingly incongruous materials. Her richly embellished canvases are abstract, but resemble the ocean, lagoons, horizons… creating an intriguing and soothing landscape.

Fragmented Realities exhibit of abstract acrylic wall sculptures by Juan Gerstl and Ryan Coleman.

Location: Mercato 9115 Strada Place, #5130

04/11/2023 - 04/25/2023

Spanish sculptor Juan Gerstl works with novel materials: laser etched aluminum and printed acrylic, layering thin intricate sheets into eye-catching geometric patterns.

“I consider the harmony of every piece I create. My creative journey oscillates from a tranquil dream to a sharp mathematical reality that is born as an optical illusion to the spectator.”

Ryan Coleman’s work combines gestural drawing and painting with carefully rendered elements inspired by classic comics and animation. Intertwining bold shapes, scribbled gestures, and vivid color schemes, he reimagines entirely new compositions in his own distinctive form. Coleman specializes in large-scale custom murals in addition to studio work including paintings, drawings and sculptures.

Paint the Town with Joy!

Location: Mercato 9115 Strada Place, #5130

05/17/2023 - 05/31/2023

We Neapolitans love our town and are proud that it continues to be recognized as the happiest city in America. Naples is growing and becoming more beautiful and sophisticated every year.

It is the perfect time for a biographer to come along, who depicts Naples’s life in the same joyful manner and happy perspective as all the citizens of Naples.

And this biographer has recently arrived – her name is Joy Stanley, and she is an artist. Many people come to the gallery and admire the places of Naples that they love, painted in “whim-storical” manner, as Joy calls it – history meets whimsy.
