Hell’s Kitchen NYC– Joseph Cavalieri, the founder of CAVAglass will be hosting a series of Artist Talk’s on the history of stain glass and his site specific light boxes at The OUT Hotel. The talks will be held Saturday, January 16th 1-2pm and Saturday, February 13th 1-2pm. RSVP Requested email@example.com
Originally, stained glass was used as a recruitment tool in Medieval times, telling stories of the bible to illiterate people. Joseph Cavalieri’s art continues to use illuminated glass, but he updates the visuals with modern day stories, imaginary landscapes and contemporary figures. These range from portraits of Jackie O, Agnes Moorehead, Isaac Hayes, and Bill Pearl (Mr. Universe), to the Simpson’s.
