SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – Paintings and drawings by local artist Edgardo Abello are on display at The Springfield Museums. He joined us in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month to share more about his work on display at the Michele & Donald D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts through January 4th.
About Edgardo Abello:
Originally from Colombia, the artist came to United States in 1978 and attended Montgomery College in Maryland to study architecture. This training and his painting skills helped him develop a fruitful architectural rendering business. Recently, Abello decided to forgo the intense deadline-oriented world of the commercial art industry and dedicate himself to the kind of painting that he has always wanted to do. He now dedicates much of his time to rendering fine details in his paintings, combining his appreciation and understanding of color and light with a careful study of the subject matter.
Curator Julia Courtney commented, “We are delighted to be hosting an exhibit of artist Edgardo Abello’s work at the Springfield Museums. The exhibit will include watercolor portraits that capture the essence of the individuals in the paintings through use of elegant lighting and meticulous detail. The show will also include still lifes which might be considered contemporary vanitas paintings reminiscent of Dutch master artists.”
