MEDAL OF HONOR
There is something very organic about Tom Casalini’s Gallery Series portraits. Each series might be compared to a single living vine of message and connectedness – that also nurtures and maintains the integrity and individuality of each portrait within the series – not unlike a vine bearing perfect fruits along its stem. Further, each of these Casalini Gallery Series fulfills an intention and outcome that lifts it above a single portrait. Each was conceived to raise awareness and move the human spirit relative to a particular group of individuals, and was ultimately dedicated to fund-raising efforts for not-for-profit organizations and institutions.
