I know it has been awhile since we put up the first series of paintings on the wall at Mozzeria. I am pretty choosy when it comes to selecting and finalizing artwork for the walls here! I am so glad taking the time and being patient is now paying off.
When Gina Pasini, a local artist, explained about her artwork pieces – canvas, wood and creating silhouette and abstract acrylic painting which can be seen at www.etsy.com/shop/aabcdefginaa, I liked what I saw and hired Patty Foo Hampton to coordinate the process of selecting and coordinating artworks for Mozzeria.
As there is banquette seating with a huge empty wall in one corner, I thought Gina’s artwork would be perfect for that wall. Patty suggested that we portray pizza tools. I took pictures of the pizza tools that we use at Mozzeria, and asked Gina to keep the colors consistent with the Mozzeria theme.
We had originally planned on using canvas, but ended up switching to wood. I love how the detailed pizza tools turned out on the wood blocks.
Ta-da! The wall now looks lively with vibrant colors! Customers couldn’t miss these new wall art pieces as they entered the restaurant, and have told me how much they love it. Yes, I agree with them!
