About Aplomb Gallery:
Opening in 2022, contemporary realist and former Dover Art Walk Director is opening a brand new gallery and studio space in Downtown Dover. The gallery highlights the power of a modern portraiture. Along with bringing in outside artists for exhibitions like “Stronger”, Festa’s mission is to produce commissioned and gifted portraits for those who are ready to celebrate strength in the face of adversity.
Figurative paintings of the Renaissance period were reserved for the rich and powerful, with carefully selected attire to highlight their prominent placement in society. Aplomb gallery is highlighting a different type of power, that which lies in individuals who have overcome challenges, painted in outfits that showcase their strength.
If you or someone you know has been through a medical crisis, a traumatic experience or loss and are ready to celebrate new found strength, a contemporary oil painting is a permanent way to mark this courageous moment. Applications are being accepted for direct commissions, crowdfunded paintings or applications for gifted portraits supported by local sponsors and individual monthly patrons.

Thank you to The Closet Connection, Edward Leary Photography, Bamford Investment Company, LLC and other initial individual sponsors.
