Unveiling will be revealing

Provided to the Tribune. Carlo D'Alessio puts the finishing touches on his painting, "Eve," which will be unveiled Sept. 1 at Art for the Home gallery.

Carlo D’Alessio’s masterwork, “Eve,” will be unveiled from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 1, at the Art for the Home gallery. In addition to the unveiling, the artist will be at the gallery from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Sept. 2 to 4.

When D’Alessio first conceived of the painting, he wanted to document the exquisite beauty of Tahoe water. He had no idea it would take six years to complete. He took many photos of a young model in the lake; three years later, he did the same with apples. Then he started painting, and now after three more years, it is finished, but how long did it actually take to create what D’Alessio describes as his most complex painting ever?

D’Alessio began his artistic journey at age 12 when he was accepted into the School of Music and Art in New York City. This is the school after which the book and movie “Fame” were modeled. He went on to study at Fordham University, New York’s School of Visual Arts, and the Art Students’ League. Today, at age 52, his latest work, “Eve,” is the culmination of his lifelong career as a professional artist.

“Eve” has already touched a lot of people, and feature articles are being written entirely focused on this spectacular painting. Prepare to be inspired when “Eve” is unveiled at Art for the Home in Ski Run Marina at 900 Ski Run Blvd.

The show will continue through Labor Day weekend from noon to 9 p.m. Sept. 1 to 4. Free validated parking is available in the main Ski Run Marina parking lot and also one block north across Lake Tahoe Boulevard in the parking lot at the southwest corner of Ski Run Boulevard and Osgood Avenue.
