Art by Elguera
2 Church Street NW – 243.0099 – artbyelguera.com
The gallery will be featuring art by Ron Elguera who specializes in the “alla prima” style of portraiture, which requires only one sitting. The artist says of his process, “My cello studies taught me to absorb the laws of perspective, composition, design, human figure, anatomy, portraiture, color theory and tonal plans.” Elguera has studied all the great masters from Giotto to Marcel Duchamp and Picasso. Come enjoy an exhibition of Elguera’s diverse works.
