Artist Robert Maniscalco (Maniscalco Gallery) will be on hand to reveal the secrets of his creations and will exhibit original works from several of his series, including paintings from “Faces of the Lowcountry,” “Iconic Charleston” and “The Quench Project.”
Robert has been a professional creative all his adult life. Born in 1959 in Detroit, he has lived in New York, Detroit, New Orleans and currently in #Charleston. His commission portraits and fine art are part of over 950 collections throughout North America. In Detroit he hosted #Artbeat on PBS and founded the Maniscalco Gallery. As an artist, he likes to work in series or missions. He also is well known for his commission portraits. His most recent mission was The Quench Project, in which he traveled to Haiti, producing several paintings, a documentary short, along with a companion book (Quench), juxtaposing the Haitian struggle with obtaining fresh water against our society’s materialistic obsession. He is also an actor, writer and teacher, currently an Adjunct Professor in fine art and theatre at Charleston Southern University. Recently, Robert expanded his creative milieu to include courtroom sketching, covering the Dylann Roof and Michael Slager trials. His original play, Vincent John Doe, received its world premiere during the 2018 Piccolo Spoletto Festival.
Robert will reveal his painting process while your palette journeys across the regions and wonders of the most exclusive wine producers of the world.
