Daniel Pollera, noted Long Island painter, will speak at the Reboli Center for Art and History’s Third Friday event to be held Friday, March 17, from 5 – 7 PM. This event continues a series of free monthly cultural programs sponsored by the Center that bring new perspectives on art and artists.
Mr. Pollera’s work has been recognized by a one man exhibit at the Long Island Museum of Art and inclusion in exhibits at numerous galleries. His paintings were recently added to the collections of the Parrish Art Museum in Watermill and Guild Hall Museum in East Hampton. His realistic paintings of Long Island are recognizable by his many admirers for their composition, light, and sense of peace. Although Daniel is primarily self taught he worked with Frances Norris Streit, a portrait and mural artist, assisting her on a 14’ x 30’ historical mural for the Roslyn Savings Bank. He also studied with Everett Molinari, a well respected President of the National Mural Society.
Mr. Pollera will speak about the course of his career, his connection with Joe Reboli, and his inspiration as a working artist. There will be time for questions. We invite you to check out the event on our facebook page here.
