Exhibition Digital Tour...

Thank you to everyone who attended my first solo art exhibition "Beyond Common Ground: the Art of J. Anthony Kosar." The show was a huge success with a great turnout, and was an amazing learning experience; it was the first time I hung art for a show. A special thank you to my family and Laura Rivas and Debbie Venezia of the Naperville Art League for all their help in making this day happen! To read more about the show, please read the article on the exhibition from The Reporter / Suburban Life newspapers - here

Here are some pictures from the event...

A total of 47 pieces were on display, consisting of pieces done in gouache, acrylic, oil, charcoal, colored pencil, watercolor pencil, conte crayon, ink, marker, scratch-board, 24 kt gold leaf, and several sculpted masks, prosthetics, props, and a sculpted figure study. The black and white Parthenon drawing (in the above picture) was done in 3rd Grade, the painted Parthenon Ancient Glory was done in 8th Grade. The Byzantine Icons were done from Sophomore to Senior year in high school. Besides these and the Spade and Zombie masks (seen in the first gallery tour picture) that was also done in high school, the rest of the work was completed throughout my four years at the American Academy of Art.
