Charles Turofsky, paintings- opening

Charles Turofsky is an American Landscape Architect, painter and sculptor. Involved in the visual arts since childhood, after 40+ years as a landscape architect Mr. Turofsky has decided to devote more time to his art. Despite a very busy schedule, he has produced scores of paintings in various media including watercolor, acrylics and oil as well as sculptures in metal and stone. His works appear in many private collections throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Currently a resident of San Miguel, Mr. Turofsky has been a frequent visitor since 1978. One of his first exhibits in Mexico, held privately and acquired by collectors in San Miguel, Canada and the US, featured portraits of many of the local characters of San Miguel. His current exhibition is quite a departure from past works, albeit still highlighting his influences in Mexico, Central and South America. Melding his two loves, nature and art, his paintings have transitioned over the years from serene watercolor landscapes to acrylic portraits to primitive oils depicting animals, body parts, and the environment.
Charles Turofsky will host an exhibition open to the public of his paintings at Mi Bistro 300, Calle Quebrada #18D, Zona Centro (across from Callejon Blanco), on Saturday, February 23, 2019, from 3:30PM to 6:30PM. For further information please visit the website at https://www.Turofskygallery.com.
