Tropical Path Signed and Numberd, Peter Spataro
Beautiful watercolor print by artist Peter Spataro. 45/1500 Measures 27 x 20 in.
Spataro was born in Granville, NY. He met his wife in New York, and they moved to MA together, and lived in Hanover. He was an art teacher at the Plymouth River School, East School and Forster School in Hingham in the early 1990s.
He was an award winning member of the New England Watercolor Society, Allied Artists of America Art Association, North Shore Art Association, Hudson Valley Art Association, and Salmagundi Club. He studied with many nationally known artists but attributed his extensive study with Edgar A Whitney as the single most influential factor in his decision to become a serious artist. One of the artists whose work has been shown at South Street Gallery is Charles Movalli, who was a good friend of Peter’s. “In fact, there is a painting by Charles which shows Peter painting,” Hobbs said.
Spataro exhibited in many national shows including American Watercolor Society. Between 1995 and 1998 he won the Gold Medal Award at North Shore Art Association and first prize at the open show at Palm Beach Watercolor Society.
