Naples FL Fine Art & Craft Show

The Naples Fine Art and Craft Show was held in Cambier Park on Saturday. One of my favorite artists is Oswaldo Ventura, a long-time Naples resident who has a strong following on Florida’s West Coast. Born in Peru, Oswaldo graduated cum-laude in Fine Arts from the University of Fine Arts in Lima, Peru.  His use of vibrant colors and soft pastels captures the essence of the contrasts of his homeland. Today Oswaldo travels each month to Cuba to teach oil painting at the University of Cuba.
