Jose Acosta will be represented by Marion Royeal Gallery

As of May 2011 Marion Royael Gallery will represent the Artist Jose Acosta and the sales of his work. Jose Acosta says this opportunity will allow him more time to concentrate on creating art and preparing for art exhibitions. Marion Royeal Gallery will handle all the sales of his art. Jose will have a solo exhibition at the gallery in June of 2011 and will also participate in group exhibitions throughout the year. Jose Acosta was born in San Jose, Cuba, in 1966. His family immigrated to the United States in 1969. Acosta has been creating art ever since he can remember, and has always enjoyed painting. In 2003, Acosta decided to go to the Art Students League of New York on weekends to further his art education. While there, he studied with John Hultberg, who greatly influenced him and allowed him to pursue his artistic visions. Acosta started his professional career as an artist in 2004, and began to exhibit in galleries and art fairs. That same year at his first public exhibit, Acosta won the Best of Show at the Dutchess County Fair. He has continued to exhibit widely since 2004 in a number of solo and group shows. By 2011, he has shown in over 300 group shows and has had 19 solo shows. The World Bank in Washington, DC, acquired seven of his works at the International Caribbean Art Fair in New York in 2007, and in September of 2008, the University of Pennsylvania acquired his painting, "Staying Alive," to display in the art library. In 2010 he became a member of the French Academy Arts-Sciences-Lettres and in 2011 he won the Bronze Medal in Art awarded by French Academy Arts-Sciences-Lettres. Acosta is represented by Marion Royael Gallery in Beacon New York. His works can be found in over 300 private collections worldwide, and in many public collections, including: Lanc__me, The World Bank, University of Pennsylvania, United Cerebral Palsy, Healthy Families Beacon, Touro College, and the Rubin Collection. Jose Acosta currently lives in Poughkeepsie, NY. If you would like more info on the artist and his work please contact Marion Royael Gallery at 727-244-5535 or e-mail at
