Francesco Pergolesi @ Catherine Edelman Gallery

unnamedFrancesco Pergolesi: Heroes
May 6 – July 1, 2016

OPENING RECEPTION WITH THE ARTIST: Friday, May 6, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Francesco Pergolesi was raised in Spoleto, a small Italian village filled with artisan shops and small businesses. Now splitting his time between Spoleto and Barcelona, Pergolesi creates photographic tableaus inspired by memories from his past: narrow cobblestone streets, the sound of a hammer coming from the open door of a shoemaker; the smell of fresh bread from a baker, the steady beat of a sewing machine from an open window, the smell of old paper in a used bookstore. In Pergolesi’s world, these sights and smells drive his art making, as he seeks to preserve the past, before big-box and chain stores arrive.
