      Julian Cargnello’s work in first gallery exhibit

      Jul. 4, 2012

      Twenty-three year old Montreal artist Julian Cargnello will be presenting his first gallery exhibit this coming week at the William Street Gallery. Chronologics will feature both Cargnello’s “The Blue Hour” series and “Sights” by Lynn Janigan.

      Cargnello’s series is described as “an introspective story recounting his passage from personal struggle to self-discovery. The paintings navigate the viewer through unique memoirs of this journey offering an in-depth window into the mindset of the artist.”

      Cargnello’s foray into the visual arts began in 2010. After training and working as a make up artist for a few years Cargnello decided to try his hand at painting. With no formal training – in a small space in the corner of his apartment – he began to paint. His first pieces were in the form of abstract expressionism. That would eventually morph into facial structures. And then would come the series, including the paintings on exhibit this week.

      Cargnello’s decision to switch career paths seems to have paid off. Only four months into painting he had already sold his first painting, and the orders keep coming in.

      The vernissage will take play on Thursday, July 5 from 6:00PM to 10:00 at the William Street Gallery of the Montreal Art Centre, located at 1844 Rue William in Montreal’s Griffontown. The exhibit will be on display until Wednesday, July 11.
