Artist Rafael Gallardo
Exhibition on view from November 12, 2015 – February 4, 2016
Exhibition Title: THE POETIC FLOWERS
Born in Valencia, Venezuela, Rafael Gallardo started his artistic career as a poet and short-fiction writer, which led him into journalism and graphic design until 1983 when he started showing his paintings. According to Rafael, “painting to me is not only the practice of color and composition, but also an experience of deep meditation and prayer, a way of blending into the big universal canvas.” In 1997 the USA granted the artist permanent residency as “Alien of Extraordinary Abilities.” Currently he develops his creations between Washington DC and Barcelona, Spain. Our upstairs gallery will be dedicated to our permanent collection. We will rotate the collection periodically to give club members and visitors an opportunity to view our artworks.
