On Wednesday the 28th of December, following the 1st annual Christmas Boat Parade in the Marina Casa de Campo, local Dominican artist Fernando Tamburini welcomed art aficionados, family and friends of the Casa de Campo and La Romana community to the inauguration celebration of his new art exhibit “Caminos Azules.”
The new exhibit was very well received by those at the opening, who not only enjoyed a welcome cocktail and live music, but also the opportunity to enjoy the art through the eyes of it’s creator, Fernando Tamburni, who recreates real-life Dominican scenes with bold statement colors, shapes and symbols. Prominently featured in his new exhibit “Caminos Azules”, is the “house” symbol which according to Tamburini represents security and femininity, as well as the color blue, to represent the laid-back Dominican lifestyle and culture.
