For the entire month of September, the art of Nat Capitanio will be on display at the MERA Schoolhouse. You are invited to join us at MERA for the show’s opening event on Saturday September 9th 10:00am to 2:00pm.
Nat has been an artist all his life. His family immigrated to Canada when he was three years old from Italy. From an early age he showed an interest in art, especially drawing. He attended a three year intensive arts course at the Central Technical School in Toronto. There, his stretched himself by learning art history, illustration, design, printmaking, ceramics, painting, with an emphasis on life drawing. Since then, he has been consistently working on his craft by attending life drawing classes and working with various media and subject matter: figure drawing, still life, landscape, portraiture, in pastel, oils and acrylics.
“I have always been fascinated with the beauty of nature; I strive to show the beauty of the world through my acrylic and oil paintings. In 2008, I moved to the Lanark Highlands region, which I find truly inspiring and where I have established my own studio.”
You are invited to join Nat at the MERA Schoolhouse in McDonald’s Corners (974 Dalhousie Concession 9A) on Saturday September 9th from 10AM to 2PM to meet the artist, view their works and purchase that “must have” piece.
