Originally from Argentina, Dr. Oscar Stivala is well known in central New York jazz and art circles. His works are influenced by the Impressionist movement, as evidenced by his bold and sculptural paintings. Retired from a 35-year career as a surgeon, many of the works in this show reflect his deep and abiding love of music, with the jazz trumpet being one of Oscar’s other great passions or his appreciation of cityscapes. and landscapes of Little Falls and its surrounding communities. Oscar’s paintings burst with all the vibrant colors of these influences, illuminating the gallery space so much that room lights are barely needed. From still life to self-portraiture, from Miles Davis to Little Falls’ own Canal Place, there’s something in the subject for nearly every eye and nearly every interest.
