      John Attanasio: "Down East & Closer to Home"
    • Sunday, October 22, 2017
    • October 13 through November 5, 2017. Opening reception: Friday, Oct. 13th 6-9pm. John Attanasio lives and paints in Philadelphia and Down East Maine.  His works are mostly representational and include landscapes, cityscapes, still life and portraits. From Center City Philadelphia, where he lives, to coastal Maine, where he has a second studio, John enjoys both the natural and built environments, and both are inspirations for the works represented in this show. He establishes mood and texture by seeking out subjects that enable him to capture the effects of light on color and form. John has exhibited in group shows at the Philadelphia Sketch Club (juried), The Plastic Club, The Athenaeum of Philadelphia (juried), the 3rd Street Gallery and other Philadelphia venues. He has also shown his works during the Philadelphia Open Studio Tours ("POST"). He has previously presented solo shows during the Fairmount Arts Crawl and at the Philadelphia Sketch Club. Following a long career as a lawyer and then as a management consultant to nonprofit organizations, John began painting in 2012. His art is now a full-time occupation. He has studied painting at Fleisher Art Memorial and Woodmere Art Museum under artists trained at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. He has also studied portraiture at Studio Incamminati, in Philadelphia. He has a bachelor's degree in economics from Harvard University and a law degree from George Washington University.
