Aldo Castillo Gallery on 5th Avenue South to feature world-known glass artist in May
April 19, 2021
(Naples, Fl – April 19, 2021) Art is alive and well at Aldo Castillo Gallery as the gallery has been positively received since opening its doors in September mid the pandemic. Visitors to 5th Avenue South as well as local collectors and art enthusiasts have welcomed and supported the newcomer to Naples.
To celebrate their first season on 5th, art lovers and collectors are invited to the first official featured artist celebration on May 13. This date will coincide with the ever-popular Evening on 5th event. To ensure safety and social distancing, the gallery will be celebrating all day long to space out guests.
For this premier night, the gallery will feature the works of Marlene Rose who is an internationally known award-winning sculptor who produces stunningly beautiful works of art in her chosen medium, sand-cast glass.
Rose’s art is seen in museums and galleries across the US and Europe, and her works are sought after by glass connoisseurs, fine art collectors and Hollywood A-list celebrities. Each piece is hand cast from molten glass into a unique modern work of art that resonates with references and allusions to ancient cultures and civilizations.
Aldo Castillo Gallery represents established international artists, and serves private collectors, museum collections and design professionals. The new additions to the gallery include hyper-realistic American artist Tony Chimento, Italian sculptor Daniele Fortuna, and North Korean painter and installation artist Keiko Hara.
