Staten Island, N.Y. — Artist Scott LoBaido, best known for his American flag portraits on display across the nation, will be featured in an exhibition in Wagner College Gallery throughout the month of March.
The exhibition, titled "Self Portraits", consists of three 4 1/2' by 9' pieces, one for each wall of the gallery. The pieces are all untitled.
"They are older pieces," says LoBaido. "They are surreal, with some patriotic influences. I prefer the audience to see what they want and try to figure out the artist's intentions; hence, they are untitled, with no explanation." The exhibition runs from Sunday, March 6, through Saturday, April 2.
The Wagner College Gallery, located in the Union building, is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., with extended hours on Thursdays until 7 p.m. For more information, phone the Wagner College Art Department at 718-390-3192, or email gallery director Bill Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
