Edgewood Auditorium
575 Osgood Street
North Andover, MA,

This lecture, presented by Edgewood resident Marieve Rugo, will focus on the story of how her uncle, Leo Castilli, came to America in 1941 where he introduced many of the leading artists of the era between 1957 and the early 1970s. It will be illustrated by paintings from the various schools of art which arose during that period, illustrating the path Leo followed to become the leading gallerist in the world.

Marieve Rugo was born in Bucharest (Romania) in 1934, and spent her early childhood in Romania, Hungary, France and Italy, moving to the British Isles at the outbreak of World War II. She came to the United States in 1945, went to three schools in New York and then received her BA at Radcliffe and her MA at Brown. She had three children — a son and twin daughters — and lived in Cambridge for many years.
