Finally! Luca is painting again! An exhibition of new works from Farmer Luca Gasperi and Metalworker Mike Walsh, titled “Men Of Industry”, is opening on Friday April 10th 2015 at 5pm, so save the date!

The boys had a good time capturing the stoic image Christina had envisioned for the exhibition poster. Official ARTfarm Photographer Heather Maynard asked for “Blue Steel” and got some great shots. Let us know if you think we should extend this into a full twelve-month calendar! Here are a couple of outtakes.

Come out to the show and bring your checkbook in case some piece of art moves you! Mike is about to go big, driving his prices up, and who knows when Luca will have time to paint again in this decade!!?
