First Weekend Artist Talk

The Water WalkArtist Talk Saturday, May 3rd, 2014. Coinciding with Plattsburgh’s popular “First Weekends,” artist Tom Semeraro will be hosting an Artist Talk Saturday May 3rd 2014 from 3:30 to 5:30 PM at the NCCCA Main Gallery to mark the close of his solo exhibition. This night will be the last to take in Semeraro’s spirited mixed media work, so make sure you don’t miss out and come show your support! This event is free to the public and light refreshments will be offered.
Originally from Albany, Semeraro has been working within the field of fine arts for over two decades. His family emigrated in 1970 from the culturally rich area of southern Italy to Albany where he was born. Semeraro has completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in photography from New York State University at Albany and an Associate Degree in Applied Science in Business Administration from Hudson Valley Community College. Recently he has made a bold move to again pursue his creative visual art, promoting his mixed media, acrylic, and oil paint pieces.
Semeraro translates every day experiences into multi-media works that exhibit a Post-Impressionist flare. NCCCA Museum Coordinator, Christina Elliott, describes his work as “a contemporary look at spirituality that holds the same conceptual and technical motives as a work by Van Gogh.” Combining elements of painting, photography, and drawing, Semeraro’s scenes of landscapes and marketplaces become a lens for the challenges faced in daily life. His works do not wallow in this tension, but display the sense of accomplishment that can be actualized by overcoming these conflicts. Semeraro states that his goal as an artist is to “share with each other the stories that make each of us unique and yet, bound together.”
The closing reception will be held May 3rd, 2014 from – to – and is free to the public. The Arts Center will also be providing refreshments. For more information contact NCCCA at 518-563-1604 or visit Plattsburgharts.org.
