“Evolutions 2” will feature the art of 86-year-old artist Sal Romano. The solo show at gallery 307 will showcase black and white and color pen and ink drawings inspired by some of Romano’s larger sculptures, in addition to some of his recent smaller sculptures using copper and brass.
The sculptures, which are abstract but have a humanistic quality, are based around the idea that the unification of fragments make a greater whole piece.
Located in Chelsea, gallery 307 is The Carter Burden Center’s program, which is designed to give a voice to New York City’s re-emerging artists.
Growing up in New Jersey, Romano became interested in art while drawing as a child. After serving in the Navy, he went to school at The Art Students League on the GI Bill at night while working as an x-ray technician during the day.
After studying art in Paris, he returned to New York and has widely exhibited his paintings, drawings and sculptures in several group and solo shows. He taught painting and sculpture classes at Lehman College until he retired in 1995. He continues to work daily in his studio in Manhattan.
The exhibition will be held from April 12 to May 10, Tuesday – Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Gallery 307 is located at 307 Seventh Ave., Suite 1401
