The Sewickley Gallery show -- Thank You!

This is big shout out of thanks to everyone who attended the Friday night opening of my exhibit, La Bella Luce Dell'Italia.  

A thousand pardons if I was unable to personally thank you that night, I simply was overwhelmed by the response with 200 + people cycling through the gallery.  

In case you missed the opening the show will remain up throughout this week.  The Sewickley Gallery is located at 549 Beaver Street, Sewickley, PA 15149.  Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 AM till 5 PM.  Special hours can be arranged by calling 412.491.7887.

Special thanks must go to the people who made this event so special:  

•  Rolland Marindino, U.S. Ambassador for Cecchi and Sartori wines.  I hope everyone had the opportunity to talk with this amazing gentleman.  His knowledge of wine, fine art and literature is incredible.

•  Matt Kulikowski, district manager for Banfi Wineries for the excellent pours.  The wine was out of this world.

•  Jason Capps, owner of Bella Sera by Greco's, for providing wine glasses and delicious hors d'oeuvres, and most importantly, being such a great friend to allow me to tag along for a week during his trip to Italy last October.  Without Jason this show would not have been possible.

•  Mark Rengers, owner of The Sewickley Gallery for hosting the show in his space.

I can't leave out a very special person, my significant other, Toni, who was there every step of the way, from helping pack my bags to calming my anxiety of editing the 6,000 initial images, to selecting the final 44 for the show.

I hope we can do it again soon.
