In 1989 Gregory created an installation in the Fresno Art Center and Museum with a series of work titled "Atlantis is Calling."  As was befitting with many of his ethereal inspirations, Gioiosa was intrigued by the mythology of the city of Atlantis and it's association with the Pleiades star constellation.  In Plato's myth of Atlantis, the island city originated with Poseidon, the Greek god of water.  The free flowing brushed metal that is seen in this piece brings to mind the continual connection between Atlantis and the sea.  According to the myth, Atlantis was the most beautiful island in the world, and it's people were the most advanced civilization with unparalleled technologies and modern architecture.  The people of Atlantis built engineering feats including aqueducts, roadways and bridges.  Gioiosa based the series of work on concentric circles, overlapping grid work and various other structural elements that were representative of the advanced Atlantean architecture. These detail images show Gioiosa's use of circles and patterning throughout the piece.  After the Museum showcase of this series, Gregory Gioiosa entered Graduate school at the University of California Irvine.  While earning his Masters of Fine Arts Degree at UCI, Gregory built upon the wall relief motif from his Atlantis series for the following 2 years.  The wall relief work was very successful for Gioiosa and an important part of establishing a collector basis for his work in Southern California.  As Gregory Gioiosa has continued to be showcased in galleries throughout the United States, his work has been collected internationally and is included in the permanent collections of several museums.
