FIVE over SIXTY in the MODERN AGE

FEBRUARY 19 THRU MARCH 28

Curated by Marcos Dimas and Nitza Tufiño

It is a fact that an artist, regardless of their genre, never retires. Every day of life is another opportunity to create and enhance their craft. The distinguished eclectic artists featured in “Five Over Sixty”  demonstrate their maturity in their art while also experimenting and welcoming new trends.  The traditional can become modern utilizing different formats. The excitement is evident in the body of work presented. In art, as in life, “Age” ain’t nothing but a number.

Lola Sandino Stanton’s new body of work is a personal reflection on young Latinos– their struggles, needs and dreams. For 13 years she taught art in High Schools with very large Latino populations. Her experiences and observations have become a series of portraits that  acknowledge the young people’s circumstances and efforts to move in positive directions both practically and spiritually.

Vinnie Dark was born to Puerto Rican parents in New York’s Hell’s kitchen. Vincente Antonio Alonso began drawing  at an early age. His two uncles Manobo Alonso and Anselmo Alonso inspired him to draw and copy images out of comic books and the Sunday News papers. During the 1960’s Vinnie began  receiving recognition when he started to  exhibit in group shows in the Bronx with over whelming success. His profound  surrealistic and futuristic style conveys his special mood in his paintings that make him unique in his work today. contact: vinniedarknyc@hotmail.com
