H. Hargrove, the Christmas Collection

On December 10th, come visit the gallery for the opening of a Christmas Collection exhibit from works by one of America’s most popular living artist, H. Hargrove.

H. Hargrove was born Nicolo Sturiano in Marsala, Italy in 1941. At the age of 23, he came to the United States with a degree in wine chemistry. His career as wine chemist soon changed direction while working for a winery in upstate New York when he discovered the American countryside and became passionate about the beauty and antiquity of the weathered barns and covered bridges. After earning citizenship he adopted an American pseudonym under which to paint.

H. Hargrove has been referred to by some as a poet with a brush; by others as a compelling visual storyteller. The artist has chronicled American life and celebrated traditional American values in his paintings.
