Three Generations is a group exhibition of paintings, etchings and sculpture by three generations of the Gesualdi family: Vito Gesualdi, David Gesualdi, and Daisy Gesualdi. The exhibition opens with a reception on January 11, from 2 p.m.-4 p.m.
David Gesualdi, a Bethel resident, is perhaps the best known of the three locally because of his prominent public work, a bronze statue of P.T. Barnum commissioned by the Bethel Historical Society to celebrate the 200th birthday of Barnum in Bethel. The statue resides in front of Bethel Public Library. However in this exhibition, he is showing a series of etchings, as well as one marble sculpture. Also exhibiting are David’s father, Vito, who has come into his own as an artist during his retirement, and David’s daughter, Daisy, who is majoring in art at Western Connecticut State University, and primarily works in oil paint on canvas.
