Aerena Galleries, which shows the work of emerging, mid-career, and established artists, routinely rotates the property’s outdoor sculpture. “Safety” is the latest piece in the rotation.
“‘Safety’ is a symbol that represents support and solidarity for the repressed and marginalized,” said Palumbo.
Born in Rochester, NY, Giuseppe Palumbo began his sculpting career in 1992. Curious and continuously seeking new techniques and teachers, he traveled to Pietrasanta, Italy, in 2005, where sculptors have traveled since the days of Michelangelo.
Palumbo’s studies have also taken him to Mexico; South Carolina; Loveland, CO; Scottsdale, AZ; and the Art Students League in Denver. Palumbo moves between studios in California and Colorado, and his work has been exhibited throughout the US, including at Loveland Sculpture Invitational; SoFA Sculpture Show, Santa Fe, NM; Art Expo, NY; San Francisco Art Market; and San Francisco Art Fair.
Palumbo’s whimsical sculptures can be found in many public and private collections throughout the US and the world, including Queen Raina of Jordan’s private collection.
