Stephen Lanzalotta at Heron Point Gallery

Sunset at Phang Nga Bay, Stephen Lanzalotta
Last Friday we had an opening reception for Portland artist, Stephen Lanzalotta at Heron Point Gallery.  It was a gorgeous summer night with gentle winds, warm temperatures and evening light, a great way to kick off the summer shows!  Stephen has about 8 new paintings for this show called "A New Light". 

The title of the show brings many things to mind.  The lightness of the actual wooden panels that he's painted on.  In the past, his panels were heavy and large.  A New Light also refers to the colors Stephen has chosen.  They feel brighter, rich with color, texture and movement. 

Many friends, art appreciators and collectors came by to celebrate this new 'light' with Stephen.  In listening to him speak with guests, it's evident the passion Stephen possesses for his painting.
