Gallery 35 is the new home for artists who would like to showcase their work in this beautiful city. Celebrating the opening of this new gallery, it showcases an array of works by John Cutruzzola. His passion for art extends to both small and larger than life canvases, created over many years and painted in both oils and watercolours. John shares, “I paint with my emotions. I paint what I feel.” This has evolved over time and encompasses a body of work that is beautiful and diverse.
More recently, with a growing concern for a world that has acknowledged a painful history of physical abuse, social injustice and spiritual corruption, John has begun to explore the medium of sculpture to express his passion and emotion. It is also through this acknowledgment and understanding of our history that his idea of supporting emerging Indigenous artists was born.
This Brampton based gallery proudly displays the works of both existing and emerging artists. The opening will feature, in addition to the arts of John Cutruzzola, the arts of Giovanni Federico of Via-Tigre Rome. John’s childhood friend, born in the same town of Gagliato, in the same year, Giovanni is a painter of note in his own country. The two reconnected several years ago while John was on a painting trip travelling through Italy. Known as a beautifully refined painter whose art is both “expressive and intellectual,” Gallery 35 is privileged to host four original works directly from Mr. Federico’s own gallery space in Rome.
