Born 1951 in Naples, Italy, Bruno has shown an exceptional inclination for art since childhood. As a teenager, Bruno enrolled in the Artistic Lyceum of Naples, a vocational school in which he had the opportunity to learn from some of Italy’s most respected artists, including Armando De Stefano. While in school, Bruno learned numerous painting techniques and the importance of artist influence on people’s lives. He participated in numerous art exhibitions and galleries throughout the country, and earned his Master of Arts degree in 1971. Afterward, Bruno enrolled at the Naples Accademia delle Belle Arti with an emphasis on Scenography. After enhancing his artistic creativity and gaining full control of various techniques at the prestigious Academy, Bruno dedicated himself fully to painting. A remarkably expressive, figurative, vocational scenographer and painter at heart, Bruno merges various techniques to encompass his own emotions, the exaltation of nature, and the purity of poetry. www.facebook.com/artistabrunodanna Artist Reception Party/Third Friday Event:

Featuring the art of Vincent Cheap
Vincent Cheap is a Colorado grown multimedia artist. Cheap’s art over the years has been about taking found objects and turning them into fine art.

John Cutaia’s works highlight his recent and successful transition into one of Denver’s most requested rock and roll photographers. This exhibition will include photographs of local and beloved musicians Hazel Miller and Chris Daniels, as well as international musicians Alejandro Escovedo, Gavin Harrison and Adrian
Belew. Composer David Torn, who has lent his talents to the soundtracks of No Country for Old Men, The Big Lebowski, and The Departed, will also be featured. Cutaia began this photographic journey by chance. A friend, who was a professional photographer, had sold Cutaia a used camera, and with this purchase he
also received a lesson in night-time photography. Delving into the challenges of shooting into complicated light intrigued and inspired him. He uses negative space and the lack of light to his advantage within the dark atmosphere of bars and music halls. Making a photograph include the abstract to transform the view into a work akin to a painting is both the challenge and the goal of Cutaia.For further information on John Cutaia, please visit his Facebook page at facebook.com/john.cutaia
Gina Burg’s works highlight the movement and light within landscapes. Burg aims to inspire the viewer to feel the passion for seeing these settings in person. By blending the mediums of film, graphic art and painting, she merges the real and the surreal to illustrate the moods of nature. With Burg’s unique eye for
composition, she captures the feeling of motion through a dream-like quality of light. She has been taking photographs since she was a little girl after being handed a 35 millimeter camera from her father. Her love of art translated into a career in graphic design, which influences and often extends into her photographic works. She has more than a decade of professional photography experience and has worked with such artists as John Fielder who stated “I consistently can say whenever she hands over another file that it is another perfect Gina Design.”For more information on Gina Burg, please visit her website at www.ginastudio.com or her facebook page at www.facebook.com/5280shutterbug
