As it nears its third year, Turkaly Art Gallery continues to bring to the Cleveland Art scene artist from outside the area, many of whom have not shown in the area before, yet have had many numerous shows throughout the country. In addition it offers a venue for local artists to explore their artistic development in connection to the Cleveland Art scene. In cludedin teh showcase are Giancarlo Calicchia, Anton Cetin, Angelo Gallo and Andrew Turkalj.
Giancarlo Calicchia- Born in Italy, Cleveland based sculptor, Giancarlo Calicchia, was formally trained in sculpture at the University of Syracuse, Univ. of Rome, and the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome as well as Miguel de Allende in Mexico. He recently had a one man show of his large stone works at Jacobc's Field last summer. Furthering his knowledge, Giancarlo studied with stone and woodcarvers in Italy, Haiti, Mexico and in Ohio, he continued to enhance his formal training by allowing his environment to influence him. Many of bronze sculptures are heavily influenced by Haitian and Mexican folklore yet he is able to transcend typical folk work of the region and depict his subject in a modern adaptation, giving new life to the old themes.
Anton Cetin- A native of Croatia and long time resident of Toronto, Anton has had over 100 one man shows, and numerous group shows all over the world. His original paintings can be found in museum, galleries and private collections including National Library of Canada, Ottawa, University of Michigan, Dearborn, Princeton University, Palais de Glace, Buenos Aires, and the National Library of France. ! Included in this show are five lithographs from Anton°Øs Eve Series 1977. Eve is a frequent subject of his work, but it is more the symbol of Eve than the actual being, representing the emotions and non-rational elements in humanity.
Angelo Gallo- A New York based watercolorist studied at the Pratt Institute and graduate of the School of Art & Design in New York. He has consistently placed first in many competitions over the past two decades including at the National Arts Club, The Butler Institute of American Art ands Allied Artist of America. His work can be found in the collections of The Butler Institute, and The Florida Museum of Arts & Science among others. His control over his media allows the watercolor to gain a greater depth. Whether it is a Italian scene reminiscent of a impressionistic fervor or brilliantly illustrated floral landscape.
Andrew Turkalj- An emerging Cleveland based artist who has just begun showing his work in art galleries. Although he has had some formal schooling he is mostly self taught. Working mainly in oil, his paintings are highly representational. Capturing his streetscapes in extreme detail he is able to achieve an almost photgraphic quality to his brush work. Up and coming his works have yet to hit the mainstream gallery scene but should become highly sought after.
