[Antony Zito Painting at Lombardi’s]
Acclaimed Lower East Side artist Antony Zito has a new exhibit at GalleryBar, located at 120 Orchard Street. Multiple Personalities: A Collection of Portraits by Antony Zito will be on display at the artsy watering hole until September 9.
Per the official press release:
…Highlights will include a large-scale portrait of President Obama (enamel on masonite, 48” x 96”) as well as a 2006 piece entitled “Mercedes” (enamel and latex on found canvas). In the evenings and on Sundays, when Orchard Street is closed for pedestrian traffic, Zito will offer his signature 15-minute watercolor portraits to patrons on a suggested donation basis. These portraits will be incorporated into the show daily, expanding it by hundreds over the course of the summer.
Patrons who choose to pay the full suggested donation price of $100 for their watercolor portrait will then be entered into a drawing to win a large scale painting (4’x5’) created to their own specifications by the sought-after artist from a photo provided by the winner. As a Zito original, the piece will be valued at $10,000. Zito will also be painting quick-draw acrylic portraits on found materials for patrons who wish to have their image duplicated on a mirror, door, chair or other surface. Purchasers of these works will also be entered into the end-of-summer drawing (scheduled for the evening of Wednesday, September 2nd) and have their piece incorporated into the exhibit.
