Veranstaltung > Art, a glimpse of Light - Galleria Castellano Arte Contemporanea

ART, A GLIMPSE OF LIGHT - GALLERIA CASTELLANO ARTE CONTEMPORANEA A collective exhibition by eleven artists who express themselves through painting, sculpture, photography and design. On the occasion of the Milan Expo 2015, these artists gift us with emotions, food for the spirit.
This fourth exhibition introduces artists who engage in intimate conversation with the nature around them. This endows them with the ability to generate “Other” worlds through artworks which are devoid of any unnecessary elements and easy to appreciate. Their work is condensed culture, history and human spirituality. It is the essence of our society, impoverished by a frenetic pace of life in a world which has been robbed of its beauty. Artists, observers par excellence, endure their solitude in this desolation, even as they dream of “Other” ways of living. In this exhibition, therefore, these artists display their rebellions, or, conversely, their ability to dream and show a glimpse of light to those who suffer or, worse, are already resigned. Hence why art is considered an essential human experience and food for the spirit.
Piero Conz, Cittadella (PD) 1946. Painter. Spontaneous, instinctual, fond of hand gestures, Piero embraces the impulse which pushes him to paint, and in this way shares his own emotions with the public. What characterizes his style is freedom of expression.
Alberto Cristini, Rovigo 1960.  Painter and sculptor. Thin little lead men – musicians, acrobats, star chasers – uncover the essence of an inspiration which is born from within. This poetry flows directly from the artist’s innermost being, purified by his immense love for his homeland.
Barbara Furlan, Camposampiero (PD) 1972, lives in Massanzago (Padua). Barbara paints landscapes, urban environments and the interiors of houses with calculated strokes of the brush, controlled, self-assured, yet elusive – as if she were describing scenes seen from the window of a moving train.
Luigi Geremia, Castelfranco Veneto 1949, lives in Castello di Godego (Treviso). Designer. Luigi invented his own unique artistic trend, Scrap Design, which employs fragments ready to be scrapped. He succeeds in generating a creative and tasteful interaction between “the old and the new.”
Enzo Gobbo, Santa Giustina Bellunese 1943, lives in Zoldo Alto (Belluno). Painter and sculptor. With his sculptures made from cherry wood, Swiss pine and maple, Enzo seeks to represent all that evokes in him an emotion or a personal memory. He shows a profound connection with nature in his works.
Giuliana Geronazzo, Bergamo 1941, Flero (BS).  Painter and sculptor. The artist tells us about mankind and the universe, about the time and beauty of plants, which she conveys mainly through glass and ceramics.
Roberto Lucato, Castelfranco Veneto (TV) 1966. Painter and musician. Roberto’s works represent “thinking men”: they offer an honest analysis of the constraints of modern-day society, which he sees as governed by “directionless power”. Through his art, Roberto seeks to re-awaken our slumbering awareness.
Antonino Nigido, Castelfranco Veneto (TV) 1972, lives in Istrana (Treviso). Painter and musician. The artist is aware of the chaos of contemporary life, but he does not feel part of it and thus re-interprets it. His dreams produce a new reality. Like a chameleon’s transformation.
Miguel Miranda Quiñones, Machu Picchu (Perù) 1956, lives in Paese (Treviso). Sculptor and restorer. Miguel mainly sculpts Andean-looking female figures interacting with horse heads and manes. For the artist, the strength of this noble animal is similar to a woman’s tenacity.
Carlo Rao, Cerda (PA), 1945, lives in Treviso. Poet, theatre writer, painter. In Carlo’s works, the explosion of colours and the carefully-researched use of materials are the central elements of a painting style which originates from the Mediterranean, from our birthplaces.
Toni Zarpellon, Bassano del Grappa, Vicenza, 1942, paintings, sculptures, installations.
As an artist Tony is intensively active. His paintings and drawings are characterised by sharp, gouging strokes, which reflect his constant tension. His aim is to breach new openings into the human mind. The models’ faces he portrays capture the existential suffering of an entire generation.

Castellano Arte Contemporanea was born in 2005 and this year celebrates its first 10 years in the business. The gallery is located in Castelfranco Veneto’s historic centre, in a building designed by architect Mario Botta in the Nineties, right in front of the splendid medieval walls which witnessed the birth of the great Giorgione.

The Castellano Arte Contemporanea gallery focuses on artists from the Veneto region who have been well-known since the Fifties and alternates their displays with those of emerging artists, who share with their more famous counterparts the same concern with “art as Beauty.”

The gallery was inaugurated on 20th March 2005 with an exhibition by Ennio Finzi (1931), a Venetian artist whose research concentrates on the meaning of gestures, light and timbre.

In 2006 the gallery showcased works by Cesco Magnolato (1926) from San Donà di Piave (Venice), who in 1954 won first prize for engraving at the 27th edition of the Venice Biennale. In the same year the gallery also showcased works by Giovanni Centazzo (1942), whose chromatic and gestural poetry represents the landscape of the artist’s home region, the Friuli.

In 2007 the gallery invited painter and sculptor Giorgio Celiberti (1929), whose Holocaust-inspired art is internationally acclaimed, and Ulisse Salvador (1910), from Padua, who is known for his fresco paintings and who was a student of Saetti’s.

In 2008 the gallery hosted “100 female heads” by Toni Zarpellon (1942), an intellectually profound artist from Vicenza and creator of the well-known “Rubbio Quarries.” In the same year, the Castellano gallery – which was then known as Art&Media – assembled several artists for a great exhibition called “7 Painters of Today and Yesterday”: Barbaro, Borsato, Paolucci, Gambino, Gianquinto, Licata and Magnolato.

In 2009, the gallery ran the first of five collective exhibitions dedicated to the 500th anniversary of the great Giorgione’s death. The exhibition was called “Geometry of Art Created” and it displayed works by Getulio Alviani, Gianni Colombo, Dadamaino, Franco Daleffe, Edoardo Landi, Luciano Marin, Marcello Morandini, Bruno Munari, Manlio Onorato, Vincenzo Pellitta, Giorgio Perretti, Nino di Salvatore, Victor Simonetti, Jesùs-Rafhael Soto.

In 2010 the gallery served as incubator for the manifesto “Our Dialectic – The Emotional Dialectic of Art as Beauty,” which was created by 7 emerging artists from the Veneto region: Grazia Azzali, Ugo Gazzola, Fabiano Fiorin, Silvano Longo, Mazzocca&Pony, Maria Pia Settin, Patrizia Simionato.

In 2011 and 2012 the Castellano Arte Contemporanea gallery sought to promote, partly through art fairs held all over Italy, the work of emerging artists whose most diverse expression techniques aimed to convey the complexity of creative processes in the situation of profound crisis which characterizes this specific historical period. This crisis is not merely economic, but is also a crisis of conscience, values, and culture. A special mention goes to Annalù and Matteo Boato.

In 2013 the gallery hosted a personal exhibition by Renato Meneghetti (Rosà, Vicenza, 1947). An artist who has been at the centre of many exhibitions in the most important European and international museums, Meneghetti is known as the “Radiograph Painter.” He kept his work separated from the various artistic trends of his time and operated in several art sectors ranging from painting to sculpting, from design to architecture, from photography to cinema, from music to theatre.

The year 2014 was dominated by the exhibition “Hell and Paradise” by Monica Pirone and Mazzocca&Pony. This exhibition combined painting, sculpture, video installations and performances to effectively convey the notion of a broken, disoriented society, which nevertheless hopes that the Beauty of art might yet save the world.

In 2015, the year of the Milan Expo, the universal exposition, the Castellano gallery has planned several event-exhibitions to be held on site at Via Roma 38, Castelfranco Veneto. These event-exhibitions will contribute to the prestige not only of Giorgione’s birth town, but also of the Veneto Expo: a portal which includes events organized by artistic institutions all over the Veneto region.
