CURRENT ART SHOW

Bistango was especially designed to showcase artwork, and has been a platform for local, regional and international artists since it’s opening in 1987. Antoinette Sullivan-StudioGallery has curated the exhibits from the beginning in a style that differs from traditional galleries: we work with emerging, mid-career, established and master artists in every style and medium imaginable.

Over the past 28 years, we have given exposure in 136 exhibits to more than 2,200 artists, local and from innumerable countries. Antoinette Sullivan’s and Bistango’s objective role between artists, collectors and art lovers creates a set of dynamics beneficial to all, in a unique and relaxed setting.
