And celebrating “A Half Century of Sculpture” with Salvatore Zagami - A fifty year exhibit of the Life Career of one of Fort Lauderdale's most notable sculptors.
“As we hope that every Artist expresses from soul, deduction and life long experiences, Zagami has been true to his inner self. His years as a teacher is clearly exemplified in his Art: He beckons us to look and observe. He breaks us out of unconsciousness. He demands we question the world around us by creating thought provoking works. Whether or not you are on the same aesthetic blueprint, Zagami’s concepts make you question man’s being. His sculptures utilizing, stone, ceramic, wood, metal, all come together to ask you to question 'life itself' rather than admiring and looking at Art as 'décor.' This is the hallmark of a true Artist," says Laurence Gartel | digital artist.
