Gallery Exhibition: Anthony Migliaccio
Opening Reception: October 24, 6-8 pm
An established printmaker and painter, New Jersey native Anthony Migliaccio has been exhibiting his work since the 1970’s. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Education in 1970 and began his career as a high school art teacher, an experience that fueled his desire to become a professional artist. After earning a Master’s degree in Art Education in 1975 concentrating on printmaking, he continued teaching and opened a printmaking studio where he worked with local artists, forging professional relationships that still exist today. In the 1980’s Migliaccio taught printmaking at Monmouth University. In the early nineties he transitioned from printmaking to painting, while continuing his career in education as an art administrator in NJ public schools. Today his paintings and prints are in collections internationally, and his painting excursions have taken him to scenic locations throughout the world. In addition to numerous solo exhibits, he has received several awards for his paintings. Some notable personal achievements include Who’s Who in American Art, Signature Artist Member at the Noyes Museum, NJ, and Signature Artist Member of the Plein Air Painters of the Jersey Coast. Migliaccio has been recognized several times for his contributions to the arts including a NJ State Senate Citation. His work has been exhibited at prestigious venues such as the Salmagundi Club, NYC, the National Arts Club, NYC, the EPA offices, Washington D.C., the Noyes Museum, NJ (including a solo show), and several galleries, colleges and universities throughout the tri-state area. Since retiring from public education in 2008, Migliaccio paints full time and travels extensively. He is an Associate member of the Oil Painters of America and an Exhibiting Artist member of the Audubon Artists, Inc, NY.
