The Work of Vincent Arcilesi

Seduction of the viewer has always been foremost in the art of Vincent Arcilesi.

- Ed McCormack, Gallery & Studio Magazine, NYC
 
Arcilesi has exhibited extensively since 1966 in many New York exhibitions, as well as in a number of important museum shows, including the Museum of Modem and Contemporary Art in Verona, Italy, the Brooklyn Museum, the Butler Institute of American Art (Youngstown, Ohio), the Art Institute of Chicago, the San Francisco Museum of Art, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC. His work is included in a number of books and other publications and he is represented in numerous collections both public and private, including the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, DC. He was until only just recently a professor at FIT, where he taught life drawing and painting. He retired so he can concentrate more on his own paintings.
