ARTISANworks' founder and dedicated supporter of all the arts, LOUIS PERTICONE, will give a presentation on “The Art of Collecting” at the March 26, 2019 meeting of the Irondequoit Art Club to be held 7:30 PM at Chapel Oaks, St. Ann’s Community, 1550 Portland Ave., Rochester, NY 14621, after the club’s 7 PM business meeting. (Enter St. Ann’s Campus and bear left following signs to the main entrance of Chapel Oaks.) There is no charge for this event and the site is accessible to all.
Around 20 years ago, Perticone began what would become a Rochester landmark in his gallery-salon-working studio complex that now includes several unique event spaces. By purchasing artwork directly from its creators, Perticone has enabled many talented artists to remain true to their calling.
While most of ARTISANworks' income is derived from catered private and corporate events, this concept provides a venue for the display of hundreds of thousands of paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures and other artistic items that include vintage automobiles, classic pianos and taxidermy.
