PLATTSBURGH — The North Country Cultural Center for the Arts is proud to announce the upcoming exhibition of Tom Semeraro’s work being displayed April 4 to May 3 in the Main Gallery.
The opening reception will be held April 4 at 5:30 and is free to the public.
Originally from Albany, Semeraro has been working within the field of fine arts for over two decades. His family immigrated 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 opening reception will be held April 4th at 5:30 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.
