Saturday, June 4, 12 noon – Marc Castelli Artist Talk
Encompassing only three weeks, this special exhibition features the first in a series of portraits of the watermen Castelli is privileged to know. When discussing the genesis of the project Castelli shared, “painting such personal images of them is unnerving. In some instances, the focus is solely on the face with the weathered lines of their lives streaming from the eyes. Some call those lines ‘crow’s feet’ I liken them to a map of every creek, river, gut, thurfer, cove, and bay these men have worked as they harvest crabs, fish, eels, oysters and turtles.”
