CJ Mingolelli - Sculptor of Life Models, using terra-cotta clay--continued from Art page.
has been critiqued by many well known art educators, fellow artisans, as well as critics - to be very realistic, Michaelangelo-like, yet have a deeper sense of connection to his soul through the expression of the face and body of his sculptures. Very emotional and uplifting.
CJ has shown
his art in many galleries in New York City, including the Educational Alliance Gallery, Hudson Guild, Westbeth Gallery, Leslie Lohman Foundation
, and La Mama La Galleria to mention a few.
At this moment,
CJ is not showing, he is working in some new pieces due at the end of this year. Check his website for upcoming shows.
