They did an interview with me that I found totally engaging and I hope you will enjoy this too.  I also have 30 images up for you to view; some new and some old but all of my favorites.  My biography is there as well as my artist statement.

And many thanks to my good friend Immo Jalass who recommended me for this exhibition!  Thanks Immo!  None of this would have been possible without you!  Also I really appreciate the introduction that you wrote and I also hope that viewers may have a playful and possible spiritual experience while visiting!  You can view his amazing digital artworks here: http://galeriejalass.tripod.com/

Very Best Regards and many thanks to the Chancellor of The Carl Benz Cloud University, Mr. Manfred Schoenebeck for accepting my artworks for this solo exhibition and special thanks to Mr. Hans-Peter Bergner, the IT Consultant who did all of the exhibition online editing!

Visiting Italy til 21st April, 2013

Helloooooo!

YAY! GOOD NEWS!  This April, I am going to fly to Italy and stay at the Ozu Cultural Centre which is an old candy factory that has been refurbished and converted into artist studios and accommodations.

View from Ozu Cultural Centre, Prov. of Sabina, Italy

View from Ozu Cultural Centre, Prov. of Sabina, Italy

http://www.ozu.it/pagina_open.asp?id=5&lin=eng

Located about 30 miles east of Rome in the province of Sabina, Ozu Cultural Centre sits high upon a mountain top with amazing views of olive groves, distant valleys and rolling hills.  The nearest village of 1,000 residents, is Monteleone about 3 miles away from Ozu!

957

Inside Ozu Cultural Center, there are bunk room style accommodations or  single rooms with a shared bathroom, a huge kitchen and dining area.  Meals are all prepared from fresh foods and we will share the cooking, clean up and of course we will all dine together!  I am very pleased that they will accommodate my vegetarian diet!

960

There are three studios; a photography studio, a clay and ceramic studio and a very large open studio for dancing or painting in!  I may do both!  But definitely PAINTING!!!

Three to five artists live at the Ozu Cultural Centre year round and their companionship, plus the other artists who are visiting, make this a perfect artist community for me to paint in.  I am taking a whole roll of canvas and plan to create large acrylic paintings!  One of the resident artists, Paola, from Ozu has ordered a large board for me that will serve as my wall to tack the canvas onto and I will stretch the paintings when I return home!

951

The artists from Ozu Cultural Centre are also coming to meet me at the airport and take me to Ozu as well as return me to the hotel near Leonardo da Vinci airport on the 21st of April!  After that I am going to the Center Plaza in Rome to people watch and take pictures.  Then I am going to find a nice restaurant and have some more great Italian food!  I will make my way back to the hotel and get up early to fly home on April 22nd!

On Saturday, APRIL 20th at 1:00 PM in conjuction with the Ozu Cultural Centre, I am having a gathering!  All of my Italian friends are invited and also those of my friends who may be traveling in the area. 

Please request your invitation by contacting me at laara63@gmail.com before April 4th.  Looking forward to meeting you at Ozu!

Also, thanks to all of my friends on Linked in, Twitter and Facebook for our creative exchanges and to those of you who have offered me both personal and creative support…..Lots of Hugs to you!
