Artist Reception for John Caggiano at BankGloucester
BankGloucester is hosting a public reception for Rockport painter John Caggiano on Saturday, January 26, 2013 from 11 am to 1 pm in the Bank’s lobby. A collection of his work is on display at the bank through March 8, 2013. The artist travels extensively, both here and abroad, painting on location. This plein aire approach enables him to capture the essence of the time and place that he interprets into his bright and colorful “Impressionistic-realism” style. The work is further enhanced by his daring use of a palette knife, enhancing the effects of his brushwork.
Meet John and speak with him regarding his work at this reception. Light refreshments will be served. BankGloucester is located at 160 Main Street in Gloucester.
