Four of Ferjo's works will be sold by Baterbys, all giclees on canvas.
Giuseppe Dangelico (who preferred to go by the name Pino) was born in Bari, Italy in 1939. He studied at the Bari Art Institute and the Academy of Brera in Milan, where he perfected his talent for painting nudes, having been influenced by the pre-Raphaelites and Macchiaioli. This led to a remarkable 13-year run, during which he illustrated over 3,000 romance novels.
Ten giclees by Pino, who recently passed away, will be sold by Baterbys, most of them hand-embellished.
Alfred Alexander Gockel was born in Ludinghausen, Germany in 1952. Even as a child, he was fascinated by the magic of colors on paper. This enthusiasm resulted in the release of his first artistic creation by a German publisher at age eight. Gockelís art is composed with beautiful lighted colors, trimmed with powerful black figures and accents. His style is uniquely his own.
Baterbys will offer several artworks by Gockel: limited edition etchings, mixed media originals, limited edition giclees and original paintings.
Elena Bond was born in Samara, Russia in 1965 and began drawing at a very early age, using everything from a pencil to her motherís make-up. Since her father was in the military, she moved around a lot, living everywhere from Moscow to Germany. She enrolled in art school at age 11 in St. Petersburg, Russia and earned a degree from the State College of Art in Uzbekistan.
Six of Ms. Bond's original oil on canvas works will be sold by Baterbys.
Not many artists are deft and talented enough to be accomplished sculptors and painters, but Wayne Trapp is just such an artist. The North Carolina native has worked in stone and steel for years, creating lavish outdoor pieces for corporate clients and smaller, more intimate pieces for private clientele.

Five original ink-on-paper drawings by Mr. Trapp will be sold, all signed.
