Stowe, VT: John Caggiano at Galleria Fine Arte

Vermont: A Romantic Journey
Opening: Friday, August 31, 2012, 5-7 pm
Ongoing Dates: August 31-September 26, 2012
John Caggiano  draws inspiration from the unique light and changing seasons of New England, as well as from his travels both here and abroad. He utilizes brush and palette knife in his colorful Impressionistic Realism style of painting. " Color is the lifeblood of a painting. Nothing stimulates more than its pleasing harmony,whether strongly applied or toned and tranquil. " 

John Caggiano was born in Brooklyn and studied pre-engineering at Brooklyn Technical High School. He received a BA from Brooklyn College and a MFA from Pratt Institute, both with honors. His education was supplemented by courses at the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Studio & Forum of Stage Design in New York. In Rockport since 1980, John is essentially a plein air painter.
