12th Street, Scarlet Town and the Shinbone Star

Gallery-On-The Boulevard located in the Kenilworth Library is hosting an exhibit “12th Street, Scarlet Town and the Shinbone Star created by Carol Bertolotti.

Carol Bertolotti is a self-taught painter.  There are over 30 artworks in this exhibit using acrylics and spray paint on board, canvas, paper and wood.  Carol states she draws her inspiration from diverse sources including “movies, TV, gardens and surreal childhood dreams that have remained vivid.”  Scarlet Town was motivated by a lyric in the ballad “Barbara Allen” and Oddball was a character in the film “Kelly’s Heroes”.

Her works have been featured in the Poe Center, Bronx, New York and gallery shows in Italy, Los Angeles and New York.  Her work was also presented in a retrospective on the life of Bob Dylan in Hibbing, MN, and in Woodstock, New York.  Her “Beatles Boot” painting is included in the book “Beatles Art”.  Online appearances include Fine Art America and Draw Serge Blog Spot.

In addition to painting, she maintains a large collection of vinyl records and is a collector of Arnold Stang memorabilia.
