Looking Back, Looking Forward: Picasso Gagione at eve N odd gallery.

[From AT correspondent Malcom Johnson. Photos coming soon.]

'Looking Back   Looking Forward'
Eve-N-Odd Gallery
St. Petersburg
Opening Sept. 7, 2013
     For this show, Picasso Gaglione used antique portraits and added 'graffiti' drawing on them that complements, not detracts, from the image. The graffiti are thin black lines added to and around the person in the portrait which alters the the original photo into something both old and new.
     He and his wife, Darlene Domel, started their first rubber stamp store in San Francisco and he eventually created the 'Stamp Art Gallery' which exhibited the use of rubber stamps in fine art by international artists. 
     In the vacant gallery next to Eve-N-Odd Gallery, there are display panels with examples of stamp art from 'Stampland' , a fine art rubber stamp business operated by Gaglione and his wife.

[Editor In Chief's Note:] I would have reviewed this myself but was unable to attend for personal reasons. A special note to Malcom for covering this with little warning.
