ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens
Reflecting the heroic spirit of Teddy Roosevelt’s provocative “Man in the Arena” speech, ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens creates captivating spaces that celebrate the work of over one hundred emerging to internationally renowned artists who fearlessly express authenticity and integrity their work.
“It is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”
- Theodore Roosevelt
ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens’ uniquely beautiful art and design venues feature contemporary art and sculpture, as well as finely-edited collections of furnishings, objects and curiosities dating from the 18th century to the present.
LA BELLA VITA
“Beauty is how you feel on the inside and it reflects in your eyes.”– Sophia Loren
ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens invites you to celebrate a collection of works by Giuseppe Palumbo in La Bella Vita. Palumbo’s application of classical sculptural techniques to his contemporary subjects creates textured and spirted bronzes embodying the essence of joy in each being he portrays. Oh, the life!
The surprising humanization of his animal subjects forges an emotional connection uniting sculpture and viewer, shattering barriers between human and beast. His whimsical and anthropomorphic works explore the human psyche through irony, wit, and humor. Palumbo pushes the boundaries of the human experience even further with his exploration of shapes and objects. From small human figures finding balance on precarious ledges, to seashells and boats bearing sprouted legs, Palumbo’s sculptures elicit introspection from their viewers, inviting his audience to capture reflections of themselves within the more serious and slightly zany subject matter. He has no limitations in his studio except the ones he creates.
Join ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens and Giuseppe Palumbo as we celebrate his new showcase, La Bella Vita.
