More Time to Create Art
2011 will mark a great time for my art career as I now have in place a network of galleries that will represent selling my art across the country. This move allows me more time to create new work and also allows me more time to prepare for solo exhibitions throughout the year. In New York all my work will be sold through Marion Royael Gallery in Beacon New York, owners Steven & Barbara Riddle. In Connecticut my work will be sold through Center Framing & Art, West Hartford, CT, owner Lori Chozik. In New Jersey my work will be sold through two galleries QbaVa Art Gallery, NJ owner Jesus Rivera and La Ruche Art, NJ, owner Robert Rosado. In Florida my work will be sold through ABRO Gallery, Miami, FL, owner Ada Balcacer. In Maryland my work will be sold through Boonsboro Art Center, MD, owner Marcel Wah .I now have more time to create art and plan exhibitions of my art. I am very proud to be associated with these prestige__™s art galleries. I am glad to be good friends with the owners of each of these galleries and look forward to a long term working and exhibiting relationship with all. As always I will be available through my e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to answer any questions about my art. A big thank you to all my family, friends, collectors and patrons. I hope to continue creating great art and hope to see you all at my future events.
Jose 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 400 group shows and has had 21 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.
My works can be found in over 300 private collections worldwide, and in many public collections, including: Lancome, The World Bank, University of Pennsylvania, United Cerebral Palsy, Healthy Families Beacon, Touro College, and the Rubin Collection.
