I went to Sylvia Stagg-Giuliano's new exhibit, "A Walk in the Past," tonight in Boston. Wonderful photographs of fountains and statuary in her native city, Guayaguil in Ecuador, where her mother still lives. (Go see her beautiful photos on the web. And if you're in town, the exhibition runs until Dec. 30.) Sylvia and her husband Rocco used to work at the same high tech company I was at in the 80's and early 90's, and there were lots of ex-employees from the company at the reception, including my friends CA and MS. We had a great time talking - kind of our own "walk in the past" - and afterwards a handful of us converged on Zaftig's Deli for a late supper.
Here's the info on the exhibit, from Gallery Watch:
Sylvia is also presenting “A Walk in the Past,” pigment prints of statues, fountains, monuments, and memorials in the parks and plazas of Guayaguil, Ecuador. Walking among these venerable and beautiful public works of art, states the artist, she feels "an emotional connection both with my own personal history, and that of my fellow Guayaquilenos." The sepia-toned, monochromatic, richly detailed prints seem like relics of another time, while their subjects, artworks of bronze and stone, appear to emerge from mysterious mists of memory. Through this exhibit, Stagg-Giuliano invites the viewer to accompany her in this "walk In the past."
And now, to bed. I'm off to New Hampshire for the day tomorrow, so probably won't post until the weekend. G'night.
