The public is invited to join the Guild members for this demonstration of art with refreshments and artistic company for $5. Members and LHS students are admitted for free.

Costantino is an award-winning architectural illustrator for 40 years and an accomplished watercolor painter. In these dual roles, he has provided his national clientele of architects and developers with striking illustrations of various projects around the world and painted his own vision of Boston’s urban scenes, New England locales, seascapes, birds, animals and portraits in a direct colorist style.

He was commissioned by the Esplanade Association to depict Boston’s waterfront park and by the Bostonian Society to paint the historic Old State House.

A signature member of the New England Watercolor and North East Watercolor Societies and an elected member of the venerable Salmagundi Club of New York, the artist was also commissioned to paint five postal cards for the USPS Historic Preservation Series.

He has an association with Boston’s Charles River Conservancy and paints scenes along the river to promote its conservation programs.

Costantino is represented in various galleries and retail locations featuring limited edition prints and card series. He is co-founder of the International American Society of Architectural Illustrators and founding member and vice president of the American Society of Illustrators Partnership.

Patrons from around the world have acquired his distinctive paintings for their private collections. Costantino’s works are included in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Art Institute of Indianapolis.

The artist conducts intensive watercolor workshops and specialty seminars at all levels of skill in various venues throughout the U.S., including his native Winthrop where he maintains his studio.
