Heather Gaudio Fine Art is pleased to present Michael Dweck: Blunderbust, his first solo exhibition at the gallery. The show will open April 11th, with a reception for the artist 6-8pm, and will be on view through June 1st, 2024.

Over the years his artistic practice expanded to sculpture and filmmaking, and more recently he has delved into painting. The gallery will be presenting Blunderbust, Dweck’s first paintings from the multi-media corpus that also includes photography, sculpture, installations, and a feature documentary. For over 70 years, the Long Island car raceways were a vital part of its small-town, blue-collar culture. Dweck grew up minutes from Freeport Stadium known for a survival-of-the-fittest type of racing rallies, “somewhere between NASCAR and Mad Max, whose wild theater – jostling colors and stench of gas and burnt rubber, the cacophony of screeching tires and crashing metal” made for some of the artist’s early memories.

MATTEO BOCELLI live at the Ridgefield Playhouse

The Ridgefield Playhouse 80 East Ridge, Ridgefield

At just 26 years old, singer/songwriter Matteo Bocelli has already performed on some of the world’s biggest stages and tasted musical stardom – sharing his sensitive songs and dynamic vocal performances with listeners globally. As the son and occasional collaborator of renowned tenor Andrea Bocelli, Matteo has been instilled with a lifelong musical education and endlessly curious nature, which are on full display on his debut solo album, Matteo, a bold step into his own spotlight. His album, Matteo, displays all the facets of his artistry, including his strong, yet vulnerable vocal style and his songwriting. While Matteo’s voice is the only one heard on the album, it does feature the writing of Matteo’s pop hero, Ed Sheeran, who penned the track “Chasing Stars.” With his debut solo album, Matteo hopes to use his voice to offer listeners comfort, and let themselves go in his classically minded version of 21st century pop. Don’t miss this worldly talent as he debuts on the Playhouse stage.   VIP INFO / DISCOUNTS / PROMOTIONS Matteo Bocelli Meet & Greet Package Exclusive meet & greet with Matteo Bocelli Personal photograph with Matteo Bocelli Access to an intimate preshow performance Autographed 8×10 photo Specially designed […]
