Exhibiting the Art of  Vivian Gattuso   Sept. 9 - November 8, 2019

“A self-taught artist, my interest in painting began when I was exposed to photographs of Long Island while working in my Real Estate career.”  A Southampton gallery owner saw something special in Vivian’s paintings and suggested that she hone her drawing skills and study mixing colors.  Taking his advice, Vivian “learned to draw with the right side of my brain” and studied mixing colors like the Masters…advice that helped her grow as an artist.

Vivian has found a passion in developing her art that she never knew existed. “I find myself always exploring the local landscape for new and exciting ideas and colors to create. Art has become a passion for me and has enabled me to discover new visions of design, color and emotions.  My photography is a path that leads to creating my paintings.  My art is a welcome challenge, one that helps me deal with everyday situations to tackle them constructively.”
