Join Innergy Meditation, celebrated gallery owner and curator Gloria Porcella, and New York-based artist Melita Osheowitz for a very special art reception. The evening will include a showing of selections of art from Galleria Ca' d'Oro, a talk by the artist Melita Osheowitz, a Prosecco toast, and a guided meditation on viewing art mindfully. Gloria Porcella has devoted her life to art. She is owner of Galleria Ca' d'Oro, with locations in Rome, Miami, and New York City. She has served as a Councilor for the city of Rome where she was responsible for the Cultural Commission, was Head of the Culture Center in Rome and worked with Italy's Environmental Minister. Over the years, Gloria has curated a great many exhibitions including a tribute to Pope John Paul II celebrating the 25th anniversary of his papacy with the Madonna in Contemporary Art at the European Parliament in Brussels and the Pantheon in Rome. She is the curator in Europe for the art of Giorgio de Chirico and for American artist Seward Johnson. New York born and self-taught, Melita Osheowitz first came into the art scene in 2001 in Nashville, TN. Her work has been shown nationally, and she currently lives in New York City. While Melita's unique, inspired work can be literal at times, her current series finds its way to the abstract. Her paintings have been described as whimsical, and spiritual, ethereal and moving. This series was inspired by nature and her increasing curiosity to work with the materials as a joint effort to create the end result. Melita starts with a vision and direction, but allows for the materials to do what they naturally desire to do. She sees these pieces and her process as sculpture rather than painting and hopes that by taking materials, canvas and oil, that are typically used two-dimensionally, she transforms them into three-dimensional pieces infused with life and movement.
