Frank Spino is our award winning guest artist for March, with his solo exhibition entitled, “Good Enough to Eat”. “This show focuses on my fascination with painting citrus”, Spino says.”Color excites me. Realism and rich, saturated color are what my art is all about. I love the vibrant color and challenging textures: thick, dimpled rinds; thin, transparent slices, freshly cut and glistening wet with juice. We think you will agree… his painting look – “Good Enough to Eat” .
In 1971, Mr. Spino received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ohio University, but said his “real” education came from the famous painter Henry Hensche, who he studied under at the Cape School of Arts in Cape Cod, Mass.”My understanding of color came from him,” he said. “We painted outdoors every day, sunny or overcast.”
Frank will be participating in our Second Saturday event on the 15th of March when he will be talking about his paintings and watercolor.
