Art Residency in Italy Part II…”Life Before Botox”

DSCN7839

I am currently at week 4 of my 6 week Italian residency. I’ve learned the reasons behind creating this program- the organizer had roots in the town, and wanted to give it a dose of artistic life. The town has it’s problems, including a low birth rate, vacant apartments, abandoned buildings, no restaurants, only one bar and only two small grocery stores. Recently the female Mayor was shot at by the mafia. Some locals call it a dying town.

Art Residency in Italy

DSCN7622

Before I left New York I visited a psychic, and was allowed to ask three questions. One was how to best to prepare for my art residency in Italy. The response was to be"self sufficient". From past trips to Italy I remember things simply go slowly in this part of the world, and I fully prepared for this. I left JFK airport two weeks ago with 50 pounds of luggage and a carry on suitcase of 20 pounds of glass to be fully self sufficient.

Art Residency in Salvador

*students lr

First I must say Instituto Sacatar is the closest to paradise I have ever been in my life. Not just the setting which is stellar, but the staff, artist living and work space and food. But here I would like to explain what personally I learned.

Cavalieri: Part 23 (aka: 3 women I met in India and how it changed my life)

Sanskriti very LR (38 x 48") 1

I was a visiting artist at the open studio at MAD for the months of July and August 2010. During my visit a few days ago to MAD, Ms. MacFadden in the Education Department asked to "hear everything" about my last residency in India. Immediately after my MAD residency I flew to India to start another at the Sanskriti Kendra Foundation in Delhi. I could have talked to her for an hour about this adventure, but kept it to 5 minutes!

Cavalieri & Crumb: Part 22… greetings from India

a LR  road side

As some of you know I left MAD early to spend a month long art retreat at the Sanskri Kendra Foundation in New Delhi. I am completing week one, and it is the total opposite as my MAD residency, mainly because I am tucked away from the public. This is a very secluded art community within a museum setting. It is amazingly quiet, with power outages and some monsoon rains, but I think I have adjusted to sleeping under a net listening to the frogs at night.

Cavalieri & Crumb: Part 21

I recently contacted my art teacher from Pleasantville Middle School. Yes I said middle school. Sally Aldrich is still teaching privately (no longer at PMS), and producing and exhibiting some excellent work in clay works, as well as watercolors and acrylics, and looking younger than me. (I am still figuring out that last bit). She brought some very nice guests, and we had a nice long time to sit and chat.
