Meet the Artists Virtually Coming Up Next: JANUARY 7

Mark your calendar for this exciting and stimulating exhibit! If you are interested in attending, contact us at Attendance is limited.

Nina F. Martino will be participating in this virtual exhibit. Her body of works stems from an esteemed family tradition that has spanned over a century.

"Students of the art world know families of artists such as the Peales, the Wyeths and the Calders, but there was another prominent Philadelphia family of artists - the Martinos." - James McClelland

Nina will be sharing her experiences and expertise through several workshops and courses during 2021 to be held virtually with Zen Acres! This exhibition is an opportunity to hear from her first hand and catch a glimpse into her immediate family's body of work.


The Cosmopolitan Club Gallery Committee is presenting monthly virtual art exhibits, featuring two artists in each one-hour virtual show. On January 7, the interactive virtual exhibit will be moderated by a member of the Committee, and feature a presentation from each artist including what inspires them; examples of their artwork; studio tour; and preferred medium. Attendees will be supplied a link to the artist’s website and be able to purchase art directly from the artist.

“Walkway, Schuykill River, Philadelphia” by Nina Martino

Artist Statement:

This talk and exhibition will include information and works by the four Martino Family members. I am the only surviving daughter/sibling. My future was predetermined as I was incredibly fortunate to be an offspring into a family of accomplished artists. My father, Giovanni Martino, N.A., was noted for his Manayunk and New Hope landscapes and is classified as an important PA Impressionist. My mother, Eva Marinelli Martino, developed her own style and themes, portraying realistic life size figures, interiors and still life. My sister, Babette, was noted for her pristine, dramatic, simplistic surreal suburban landscapes. My themes for the last decade are of Cityscapes of Philadelphia. The Schuylkill River, the historical classical buildings vs the avant-garde skyscrapers. The paintings are a compelling, descriptive enhanced evolution of history-past and present day.
