Featuring Latin American Art of Antonio Carreno
Teaneck, NJ (September 28, 2004) – “Melody from the Silence of the Soul”, a “Hispanic Heritage Month” exhibit featuring oil on canvas, mixed media on canvas, and mixed media on paper by Antonio Carreno, is being held at FDU’s Edward Williams Gallery in Hackensack from September 27-October 29, 2004.
Antonio Carreno, who went to the National School of Fine Arts in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, was inspired by cherished memories of his early life in the islands when creating his mixed media paintings and pastels. His paintings are structured methodically with emphasis in detail and symmetry, redefining the legacy of surrealism in Latin American art with lively lines and colorful concepts.
“Carreno captures both the nuance and the vitality of life in his work,” explains art historian Marcia Corbino, “allowing viewers to contemplate a powerful aesthetic vision, which lingers subconsciously beyond elusive moment.”
The Gallery in Edward Williams Hall at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Metropolitan Campus is located at 150 Kotte Place, Hackensack. The Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and Saturday 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information call 201-692-7028.
