Renato Muccillo | Artist Video Interview

Artist Renato Muccillo's landscapes have often been compared to those of Dutch masters and 19th Century English artists.

During these past 33 years, White Rock Gallery has become one of the most durable art destinations in British Columbia and a well-regarded online venue across North America and beyond. We understand that original art cannot be pushy. It should leave our walls for yours only when it speaks to you personally and persuasively. Step one for the gallery is simply to assemble compelling pieces of art, by building strong relationships with our diverse array of professional artists. Step two is to provide a welcoming, unhurried environment in which the displays are always kept fresh and interesting. Running through all these years is the forging of respectful relationships with clients whom we’ve known in many cases for over two decades. And we’re always happy to speak with newcomers. A phone call is a great way to start if you aren’t able to drop by in person.
