Historical and marine artist Len Tantillo will present on paintings of Early Dutch New York, inspired by the “rivers of New Netherland” — the Hudson, the Connecticut, and the Delaware. Upon these waterways, hundreds of vessels carried goods and passengers, and the diversity and organic beauty of their varied designs have long been an inspiration to the artist. A licensed architect who left the field of architecture in 1986 to pursue a career in the fine art of historical and marine painting, Len Tantillo has produced over 300 paintings and drawings and has appeared internationally in exhibitions, publications and film documentaries.
