Frank Federico is a seasoned artist with many credits garnishing his career.  He has attained the honorable level of signature membership of numerous prestigious art societies including Master Pastellist Pastel Society of America, National Watercolor Society, Pastel Society of Painters on Cape Cod and Degas Pastel Society, to name a few.  He has received numerous awards including the Grumbacher Gold, Silver and Bronze, many honors from the Pastel Society of America, National Society of Painters in Casein & Acrylic, Allied Artists of America and many more.

He has executed three murals in oil, one of which hangs in the Student Union of the University of Connecticut in Storrs.  A figurative piece entitled “Transcendence,” it reflects one’s rise to heights and/or goals of achievement.

Federico conducts workshops domestically and abroad. He teaches a regular art class at West Hartford Art

His paintings have been exhibited in New Orleans, LA, Florida, California, New Mexico, New England, Brunei, Stockholm and Tokyo, in group and solo exhibitions.

His work is currently represented by two galleries:  Elaine Beckwith Gallery in Jamaica, and the Gregory James Gallery in New Milford CT.

Federico considers himself to be a colorist and a contemporary impressionist. He looks for the essence in a landscape or a figure, while applying emotional and aesthetically crafted content.

“I believe that art is as capricious as nature’s own whims.  It is as permanent as the endless striving for universal harmony, but in a constant flux.  My technique is varied with mood and empathy for the subject matter or motif.  Nature provides the catalyst – human or otherwise – with this constant flux of rhythms, shapes and boundless energy.  Each painting speaks for itself and has a life of its own.  I am the stoker of the energy, the catalyzer.”
