The Moretti Art Gallery at 24 East 80th Street has an opening tonight of fine Italian painting. http://www.morettigallery.com/ It’ll be from 6-8pm. Amazing work. Their entire building is a nest of high-end art galleries from the 5th floor on down. One had an opening just Monday night. But way beyond openings these galleries are beautiful places in which to view art.

The show is HOT.COOL.ERARTA ART.YOURS. And it’s title is indicative: OLYMPIC ART HAPPENING AND LIGHT SPIRITS. To ensure entry please RSVP to: ny@erartagalleries.com
