The Foundation Gallery, 608 Julia Street, presents the work of Paul Santoleri, November 10, 2012 - January 12, 2013, with an opening reception to meet the artist on November 9, 2012, from 7p.m. - 10p.m.

Paul's mystical and fantastic drawings, paintings and sculptures depict compelling otherworldly imagery.

In the words of the artist, "The work is a way to keep time, to maintain an awareness of my own relationship to my inner and outer world. I incorporate objects that I collect, images from dreams, flowers blooming and decaying in my backyard, stories and postindustrial waste, and anything else that slips out of my brush and through my line. The images are loosely in the tradition of landscape, and often mountainous and dense. I wish the works to feel and be organic, to have no beginning and no end, to reflect a repetitive action, like the act of artmaking itself. I often reflect on the beauty in decay in my drawings, and the landscape gives way to a deeper storyline that disturbs and intrigues me."

Proceeds from the sale of artwork at The Foundation Gallery are donated to charities such as Alzheimer's Foundation and Habitat for Humanity.

The Foundation Gallery, 608 Julia Street, is open from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, and 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday; closed Sunday and Monday.  For more information, visit http://www.foundationgallerynola.com/ or phone (504) 568-0955.
