Gallery211 in Red Bank, NJ is pleased to welcome local artist Carla Valentino, and announce the opening of her show, Alternate Routes: A Retrospective.

This collection represents the work of a more than ten year period. A wide range of influences, as well as experimentation with a variety of media, contributed to the diverse outcomes. Color, shape, texture, pattern and contrast are explored and reconfigured through multiple processes such as collage, painting, and most notably, mixed media. A single medium never seemed to be enough. The need to combine materials grew exponentially along with the gradual transition from realism to abstraction, and ultimately to a combination of both.

Carla Valentino was born in Naples, Italy and raised in New Jersey. She received a BA in Studio Art from Georgian Court University with graduate work at Monmouth University and New Jersey City University. She is a Fine Arts teacher at Red Bank Catholic High School, as well as an adult instructor at Colorest, Red Bank. Teaching, on both levels, has been a continuous inspiration. Watching students discover previously unknown ability fuels the continuous search for even more pathways to creative expression for both student and teacher.

Prior to teaching she worked as a graphic artist for the Asbury Park Press and a display artist for Macy’s.

Two Eleven Broad, located on the main office corridor in charming Red Bank, NJ, is an innovative adaptive reuse of a 62 year-old First Church of Christ Scientist sanctuary. The property was converted into a LEED certified professional office building and provides space for a community art gallery.

Gallery211 is open Monday through Friday, 7:00 am - 7:00 pm. For all other information or inquiries regarding purchases, contact Carla Valentino; or 732-741-7258.
