National Artist Robert Finale will be appearing at Bella Arte Gallery for a "Meet & Sketch" event at the artist Opening Reception, Friday Sept. 18 from 6: 30 to 8:30 pm. Among his captivating romantic art works at the gallery will be his newest of Lake Como, Villa Balbianello. This villa has become something of a Hollywood star, serving as a set for movies ranging from 'A Month by the Lake', starring Vanessa Redgrave & Uma Thurman, to 2006 James Bond 'Casino Royale' & 2002 'Star Wars: Episode II, Attack of the Clones' & Lake Como itself stood in for the lake district of the planet Naboo. The villa is a monument to the Italian adventurer Guido Monzino & is a famous wedding location on Lake Como. Is there any wonder why Robert chose Villa Balbianello to remind us of romance! Show continues through Oct. 17.
