Casa Colombo | Dino P. Galiano, Painter and Sculptor
June 4 @ 10:00 am - June 29 @ 5:00 pm
Dino P. Galiano started carving marble at the age of fifteen. A self-taught sculptor and painter, he was a graduate from Rutgers College ’83 with a B.A. in Art History. Dino was influenced primarily by the artist Michelangelo Buonarotti and followed a procedure of directly carving into stone with few, or no models. Dino’s interest in the Italian Renaissance era, enhanced by many inspiring journeys to Italy, gave him the fascination for carving marble. Dino lived his life as a skilled mason. He was a true Renaissance man in his labor, artistic achievements, scholarly pursuits, and the way he lived every day of his life. He was a friend to all people and shared his passion for art, gardening, and literature with everyone whom he met. Dino’s talents, passions, and spirit are represented today in this exhibit of his extraordinary paintings and carvings.
