David Gista Studio Show

On View: October 26- December 3, 2023



"Over the years I have been teaching people how to paint and, more importantly, how to make their work evolve. Part of my method is to have multi-level students in my classes because I believe in the power of synergy in a group, I observed that it allows the class to progress together, providing encouraging results.although I try to favor the process over the result." -David Gista
