“Pittorica” Opening Reception This Saturday

Posted on November 15, 2006

Our Inman Park shop welcomes the artwork of Andrea Scarantino and Mauro Buffa, which will be shown from November 13 to December 13. Please join us for a reception on November 18 from 6 to 8 p.m.

“Pittorica” features the paintings of two “pittori per caso” who came to Atlanta from Italy, the land of missed opportunities. Andrea Scarantino is a philosophy professor at Georgia State University, and he interprets Pittorica as much as a way to share his paintings as an experiment on the nature of contemporary art and its impact on human emotions, his primary research focus. Mauro Buffa is an architect and world traveler, who prior to coming to Atlanta has lived in Rome, New York, Barhain,the Netherlands, in search for opportunities he did not have at home. Pittorica offers him a chance to explore another side of his passion for the beauty of forms.

Mauro and Andrea work in acrylic, and look very much forward to the opportunity of showing their paintings.
