Hutton Galleries shows “Recent Work” by Frank Arcuri


Patricia Hutton Galleries will celebrate the delivery of new work by Frank Arcuri with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16.

“We are trying not to call this an exhibition because Frank will usually deliver about 30 paintings for a new show. However, our last solo show for him last October was so successful that I asked if he could deliver more work in time for the holidays,” said gallery owner Patricia Hutton.

“Just in the nick of time we will receive at least 10 new paintings to add to our stock. Since people have been looking for more, we thought we would make it into a party to celebrate. Why not, right?” said Hutton.

Frank Arcuri is one of the gallery’s most popular artists, According to Hutton. His paintings have received national and international recognition, and he has a large following of collectors who admire what he can do with light and shadow.

“His still life elevates simple objects, pottery, vegetables, flowers to new heights and a hard to describe poignancy. It’s a reality bathed in the most beautiful light.

“The paintings are in the tradition of the Dutch Masters, but also have a timeless freshness. They are often juicy, glowing, warm and delicious. The chiaroscuro effect of light against dark can make them dramatic as well.”

Arcuri studied at the School of Visual Arts and the Art Students League, New York. He has received many awards, including those from the Bianco Gallery, Phillips’ Mill, and the Salmagundi Club.

He has exhibited widely, most notably at the Eleanor Ettinger Gallery, New York; Catto Gallery, London; and at Art Asia International, Hong Kong.

His teaching experience includes the Art Students League, and in his own atelier in Bucks County.

Those who attend the reception will be among the first to see the new selection. It’s like Christmas a little early for Arcuri collectors.

Patricia Hutton Galleries is located at 47 W. State St., Doylestown. Call 215-348-1728 or visit Patricia Hutton Galleries online.
