Frankie Vinci Spurs Pop Art Revival

Frankie Vinci Spurs Pop Art Revival

Our first pop art exhibition featuring Frankie Vinci was a great success! Guests marvelled at portraits of their favorite classic musicians rendered in mixed media, including upcycled magazines, show posters, metal, fabric, and spray paint. Frankie has a great eye for unique materials and has the ability to make some of pop culture’s most iconic images his own. For those who missed it, we have posted the digital collection to our website HERE.

Excellent Pop Art show tonight. We just love having Rene Soto Gallery in our neighborhood. Thank you!” – Steve Serasis, Opening Reception Guest

“Strengths Showcase” Recognizes Perseverance Against All Odds

“Strengths Showcase” Recognizes Perseverance Against All Odds

An architect, Zumba instructor, and artist, Weverson Ponte recently organized “Emotion Explosion,” a community event and fundraiser for Kids in Crisis, a nonprofit organization that gets kids and teens out of dangerous situations, and restored to a state of healing and growth. For a donation, community members watched as Ponte, and more than 40 graffiti artists, tagged a house with their fears, before it was demolished, along with their fears. Search #demolishyourfears on IG to see more photos.

“We’re calling this a movement of sorts. We’re trying to encourage people to face their fears and improve their lives,”

We, too, believe in the ability to transcend fear through art, and so we have partnered with Ponte on “Strength Showcase.” This fine art exhibit is a continuation of “Emotion Explosion,” featuring 12 of the artists who participated in the event: Kim Joy, Five Fingaz, Rene Soto, sugarcane Danger, Fiyabomb, Werpeps, Derty Skynerd, Hands of Picasso, Marissa Scipione, Jesse Alejandro, Caroline Kirk, and Weverson Ponte.

We are the first in a series of community-based installations of the exhibit, which will be on display through the month of September. See photos of the Opening Reception below.

In the past month, Rene Soto Gallery has been proud and excited to display a selection of the works of José Miguel Muñoz, the Guatemalan painter and clothing designer. He graced us with his presence at the Grand Opening, sold several paintings, and offered guests a live painting demonstration. Before we make way for our next featured artist, Richard Thomas Patton IV, let us celebrate José one last time, and wish him great success in all his future endeavors. We are also celebrating a successful first month for the gallery! You do not want to miss this, particularly the wine and cheese!
