Painter Derek Szteligia will display Into the Blue in Walton Lobby beginning Saturday, September 2, 2017. A gallery talk and reception will take place on Thursday, November 9, 2017 at 3:00 p.m.
“The Into the Blue paintings explore the relationship between man, technology, and the awesome and unpredictable power of the sea,” said Derek. “The enormity and sublimity of unchartered territories expose the limits of man’s capabilities, pursuits, and aspirations. The feebleness of his technologies is made apparent as he attempts to tame or bridge uncontrollable natural forces. Through these works, I aim to show that despite the technological innovations available to him, man is no match for the harsh, destructive capabilities of iceberg, sea, or nature in general.”
The exhibit will be on display from Saturday, September 2, 2017 through Thursday, November 9, 2017. The gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information, contact Amedeo Salamoni, gallery coordinator, at 215.579.6695.
