Oil artist at Furman Park

DOWNEY - Joseph Iantorno, an award-winning teacher whose oil paintings were exhibited in the 2010 Oil Painters of America National Show, will demonstrate his work June 26 at 6:30 p.m. at Furman Park.Iantorno, of Anaheim, prefers to paint in the style used by Rembrandt - the "Chiaroscuro" style - which literally translates to "light and shadow." In the proper light, the subject seems to separate itself from the canvas and stand out in front of the darker background colors. "Art should move you. It should enhance your life," Iantorno said. "A work of art is a unique and beautiful creation that must be done with love. I seek to fill my work with emotion, mood and compassion." The demonstration is part of the Downey Art League's regular meeting and will be held inside the park's Building 1.
