Opening Reception: Meet the artist on Friday, February 28, 4pm-6pm

(Parking available in Lot C on Springfield Road after 4pm and all day in Lot EE on Salt Springs Road. More info)


Artist Statement: As an artist I want to show more than two typical dimensions on a flat, square canvas. The impressionist style allows me to demonstrate sounds, life, and energy.

About the Artist: Richell Castellón Ferreira, a Cuban native, is well-known for his evocative street scenes of Havana and Varadero, Cuba, working in acrylic on canvas. Working deftly from light to dark, he is able to create the impression of buildings, cars and people with his expertly placed loose brush strokes. His paintings are mostly monochromatic in tone with splashes of rich color, and glow with an inner light.
