On the Wall
Artists Bob Greer and Fred Cardarelli will be on display at the New Hartford Public Library during September.
Bob Greer is a local artist from New Hartford NY and a 1971 graduate of MVCC’s Advertising and Design program. He has been drawing and painting as a hobby for the past 40 years. His work has been displayed regularly at the MWPAI Summer Sidewalk Arts Festival as well as other local art shows. The main inspiration for his artwork has been the Adirondacks, his wife’s native Italy and local scenes. His artwork consists mainly of landscapes, portraits and house renderings done in a variety of media including oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel colored chalk, charcoal and pen & ink.
Fred (Fernando) Cardarelli is a retired local contractor who has spent his entire life working with stone, brick, concrete and wood. His gift of working with stone, marble, granite and wood during his career as a contractor has made the transition from builder to art and sculpture a natural step. His sculptures and mosaic art have been displayed at the MWPAI Summer Sidewalk Arts Festival for many years.
