Steven Colucci’s New Works Wow
 at Orley Shabahang Gallery & Showroom

Renaissance man - dancer, mime, chorographer, director, couturier and painter - Steven Colucci wowed his fans and collectors with a stunningly vibrant new series of mixed media works under the banner of “Concepts in Motion” at the internationally famed Orley Shabahang Rug Gallery & Showroom on 58th street in the heart of the design district on Thursday February 9. The exhibition was curated by Jacquelyn Lipp of Streetwater.


Hundreds of art enthusiasts turned out to see his over-sized, neo-impressionistic works, many inspired by the ocean front views of the sea at his Westhampton Beach home.

Also on display was a collection of small works painted on a most unusual material - postal express boxes!


Sponsored by Fasolino International Foods, Wines, Spirits & Beverages, there was no shortage of excellent wines from the Fasolino Family‘s three California vineyards. They were the perfect compliment to the delectable hors d’oeuvres served up by caterer Mark Fahrer and his chef partner Wayne Nish of The Quilted Giraffe, La Columbe D’Or and his own critically acclaimed March Restaurant fame. Nish who has more New York Times stars than any chef in America worked with Fasolino’s food products to create such savory and gorgeously presented treats as Truffled Mac & Cheese Croquettes, a lusty Bruschetta and tenderloin of beef with kale on a spicy papadum chip. Fahrer and Nish also came up with some ingenious and quite popular cocktails infused with a new liqueur Intrigue.


Matt Sandy, the creative force behind the 16 X distilled Medea Vodka with its Times Square evocative LED band that can carry up to six blinking messages was deftly instructing guests in how to personalize their own bottles for special occasions while his staff shook up martinis that would pass 007’s discerning taste. And to end the evening there was Moet-Hennessey’s exquisite Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch, the perfect compliment to Mark Fahrer’s toothsome “Mark-aroon” cookies. 


The Fasolino Family was out in full force – Antonio Fasolino who heads up the 89 year old family business with his lovely wife Mary Ann and beautiful daughters Jillian, Jacqueline, Jessica and Jennifer proving that behind every successful man there is a smart woman and in his case five. His ever-expanding, multi-million dollar food empire has grown to become one of the largest, privately held food enterprises in the United States.


Among those admiring the art while sipping cocktails were Jere & Sarah Patterson; publisher Gerard McKeon; Anese Young just returned from her annual sojourn in Italy, food & wine industry pioneer Monty Zullo who’s responsible for creating some of the world's most exclusive restaurants and clubs; Sotheby’s Christina Freyss; Notism founder artist Ron Burkhardt; tech guru Gary Andreassen and his wife actress Katherine Andreassen fresh from the set of “Person of Interest”;  adding a little theatrical glam, as well, were young actors Sonya Rome, Sean Raphael and Maria Soccor and everyone’s favorite fab fashionista, The Quest for IT ‘s Tia Walker also Morgan Stanley Smith Barney’s Joseph Maiullo IV and Marshall T. Davidson and Orley-Shabahang Gallery’s Ashleigh Miller and Shirin Shabahang.




No surprise that the gallery was filled with theatrical folks,  Colucci is equally renowned as a dancer, choreographer, designer and director and has performed on stages around the world collaborating with the likes of Marcel Marceau, Joe Papp,  New York City Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Polish Mime Ballet and Julio Iglesias to name a few. 


Colucci who divides his time between Westhampton Beach and Manhattan has exhibited his neo-impressionist works at such prestigious venues as MOMA, Mark Hachem Gallery on Madison Avenue, The National Arts Club, Belenky Gallery and Grant Gallery in SoHo. His works are in numerous private collections around the world.


Passionate about the need to support research and care for Alzheimer’s disease, he will contribute a portion of the proceeds from this sale to American Friends of Herzog Hospital in Jerusalem.
