Luigi Rocca City Views Print
21-10-2005 / 21-11-2005

Personal exhibition at Michael J. Wolf Fine Arts, San Diego, CA. to celebrate the ten year anniversary of cooperation.

In 1995, downtown San Diego was in the midst of dynamic renovation and renewal. The quiet city on San Diego Bay was about to take its place among the leading cities of the United States.

At the same time, Michael Wolf, a young framer in East County with a growing reputation collaborated with art collectors John and Kathy Collins to bring together the shared vision of a fine art venue for downtown San Diego. A search was made for the ideal location. They found the perfect spot to be the historical Brunswick Building.

Built in 1888, it provides twenty five hundred square feet of space which is highlighted by a loft area accessed by a spiral staircase, hardwood floors, wood beamed ceilings and brick walls. The gallery is located on Fifth Avenue, in the heart of the Gas Lamp District; one of the most popular destinations for downtown visitors.

The vision was to provide both residents and tourists the opportunity to view fine works of art from nationally and internationally recognized artists. Always in search of new artists and their works, the gallery discovered the unique works of Luigi Rocca in Northern Italy. A resident of Venice, Rocca’s works are filled with color, movement, and are superb examples of hyperrealism. After ten years in business and exhibiting Rocca’s work we are proud to be providing a major showing of his art to be celebrated along with our tenth anniversary.

Michael J Wolf with pride presents City Views the art of Luigi Rocca. We would like to thank Luigi for being a major presence in the gallery for the past ten years and look forward to many great years to come with him and downtown San Diego.
