ArtBridge: Curating connections between artists and our community
Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) celebrates the art work of its Artist Studios Building artists through ArtBridge, a curatorial outreach program designed to promote the visual arts, develop relationships with local business and support visual artists in local Boston communities.
For this installment of ArtBridge, the BCA joins with Roosters Men's Grooming Center to exhibit the work of Victor Ortale. Ortale is an Associate Principal at Goody Clancy Architects in Boston and has been associated with the BCA for nearly two decades. With his architectural background serving as inspiration, Ortale creates vibrantly colorful oil paintings and woodblock prints of the urban landscapes of Boston, Provincetown and Arlington.
Victor Ortale | Artist’s Statement
As an artist and an architect, I am drawn to structure and urban settings. Be it the density of Boston, the wonderful light in Provincetown or the quiet elegance of Arlington, I find each location has its own identity. I sense an architectural personality and feel my work is portraiture/caricatures of each place.
