Artist Al Calderaro of Gallery A
Al Calderaro is the gallery owner/curator of Gallery A in the blossoming arts section of downtown/oldtown Richmond, Va. Kara Dahl Russell met Al a few weeks ago (traveling with her long-time friend, internationally recognized sculptor, John Antone). They viewed the current show, and had such a multi-layered discussion that she invited Al to come on air to share his unusual view from “both sides of the desk” as a pop-art painter who worked in the heyday of the New York pop-art scene, and now a gallery owner. He shares what he has done, and the new things he has learned about showing, selling, buying and creating art for the current fine-arts market.
