Upstairs at Main Street Arts we are currently exhibiting paintings by Joseph (Joe) Tarantelli. This show includes seven oil paintings of scenes in and around the Finger Lakes area.
Joseph Tarantelli, Fall Oak, 2014, Oil on Canvas, 30″ x 40″
Joseph Tarantelli, Mendon Ponds Lily Pads, 2012, Oil on Canvas, 22″ x 28″
Tarantelli believes that as a part of nature, it is important for us to appreciate the natural world. His contemporary landscapes are very textural, incorporating geometric lines and vivid colors.
As a plein air painter, Tarantelli feels he is becoming closer to the light and color of the natural world through a refreshing of the senses. Tarantelli successfully aims to rejuvenate the viewer’s natural senses.
One of Tarantelli’s paintings, Oak Tree, is also on exhibit in FLORA, our current juried exhibition of botanical artwork on the main floor.
