On Sept. 6, Johnny Apollo Gallery in Nyack, NY will present a retrospective of original art by artist Rosanne Cerbo, a Tuxedo resident. All are welcome to visit the gallery and meet this very talented artist, from 5 – 8 p.m.
With over 60 paintings on display at the gallery, many of which she has created in the last six months, Cerbo showcases her versatility as a realistic painter. She had the fortune of studying under notable artists and teachers like Andrew Lattimore, John Osborne and Daniel Wexler and has been inspired by many subjects, including portraits, landscapes, still life and drawing the figure. She says, “These teachers encouraged my tenacious behavior on proceeding on this “journey” of art that never ends. I do a lot of my painting while sleeping – somehow I reach a lot of my solutions that have been troubling me that day in my dreams.”
As an artist, Cerbo maintains a steady discipline, painting daily, while she continues to learn in an art form where there is no end to learning. She says, “3 times a week I work on my plein air painting, 3 times a week on portrait painting, and one day a week either on nudes or still life. You can never learn enough. You have to keep at it.” She particularly enjoys painting horses, as she has worked with them her whole life.
Cerbo’s long list of awards is a testimony to her talent and steady progress that she has made over the years. Last year we had the fortune of seeing a couple of pieces of her art work at a group art show at the Seligmann Center for the Arts, where she received first prize for a painting she entered. Her awards are extensive. Visit her website to learn more about her work and career as an artist. http://www.rosannecerbofineart.com/
