Vaso Vasiliki Peritos @ North Bay Gallery
Join North Bay Gallery in welcoming San Francisco mix media artist, Vaso Vasiliki Peritos for a one day gallery appearance.
Vaso has created a distinctive contemporary look using metallics and acrylic paint, re-inventing the art of fine wine with her bold, vibrant and impressionistic mix media paintings. Her compositions of wine bottles and filled wine glasses invite each connoisseur to partake in their own interpretation of their favorite wine. Titles such as "One of Each, A Taste of Napa and Uncorked," all invoke an appreciation of fine wine and the memories that accompany it.
The gallery will have many originals as well as limited edition giclees on hand for the many Vaso art collectors.
