A Fistful of Drawings
A special exhibition paying homage to Sergio Leone's films coinciding with Arthur Vint performance
A Fistful of Drawings is a special exhibition featuring illustrations by Joe Cardiello. It pays homage to Sergio Leone’s films coincides with a performance by Arthur Vint featuring works by film-score composer Ennio Morricone.
A Fistful of Drawings, based on a graphic memoir of the same name, weaves together Ciardiello’s Italian family history and the mythology of the American West while paying homage to Leone’s films and the classic Westerns of the ’50s and ’60s. Ciardiello’s sinuous ink line and vivid watercolors illuminate the oversized characters that dominated the cinematic American West ― featuring John Ford, John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Claudia Cardinale, Sophia Loren, and many more.
The exhibition will not be open to the public between April 11 – 29 while ArtYard’s gallery is closed.
