Alexandra: by Eugenio Cuttico

Colors painted by Eugenio Cuttico can wing into sweet dreams or snipe with sharp barbs in a cold reality. Contained in both extremes is something unexpected: a serene woman occupying center stage of the painting. The contrast of abstract backgrounds teeming with motion with a woman that doesn’t adds intrigue to each painting.

These enigmas are recent artworks made by Mr. Cuttico of East Hampton. They are also the subject of a solo show at The Tripoli Gallery of Contemporary Art in Southampton. The exhibit, Alexandra: A Solo Exhibition, remains on view through November 24.

The gallery is located at 30A Jobs Lane. The website is http://www.tripoligallery.com. The gallery’s open on Fridays to Sundays from noon to 8 p.m. For information, call 631-377-3715.

While there, think about visiting the Parrish Art Museum (directly across the street). Or, stay on the same side of the street and stop by RVS Gallery or Arthur T. Kalaher Fine Art. Both are a few steps away from The Tripoli Gallery along the brick courtyard. Call first to find out what’s being exhibited and current hours.
