The Marie Louise Trichet Art Gallery at Wisdom House Retreat and Conference Center will open an exhibit titled "May 4, 1970 (after Goya and Picasso)" by Salvatore Gulino on Sunday, from 3-5 pm.
The exhibit consists of only one painting. The artist has borrowed images from two masters, Francisco de Goya and Pablo Picasso, to depict the deep personal impact the historical event of the 1970 Kent State shootings had upon the artist. The piece became the impetus that unleashed what would become his future signature style of painting, which is referred to as appropriation art or the art of re-contextualization.
The public is invited to the artist talk held at 3:30 pm and followed by a reception.
