Well, first I need to explain that this was his first trip to NYC while for me, it was a work trip to a place I used to live.
Two days before my flight, he sent me a message asking if I was in the USA yet. We had been friends for a few years after meeting in São Paulo, and I had told him that was all I wanted of him. So friends we were and we often sent messages to each other. He knew I was coming to the USA again (it didn’t cross my mind to meet him on a previous trip) and this time he made a move before I could think it through.
Recently I have decided to get back to doing Arts&Crafts Fairs. It's not usually a profitable thing for me but after moving so many times, I think Fairs are a great way to get to meet local people and every now and then you may just happen to come across an awesome new client! This is what happened at the Magnolia Fair last month.
The reception was held on Friday the 6th and it had a lot of traffic and sales. The show got the attention of The Post and Courier and I was mentioned in an article with one of my paintings as the featured image.
If you missed the reception, don’t worry! The show is up until the end of the month. Be sure to make your way to the gallery and enjoy the lovely French Quarter District.
What an awesome showcase of Brazilian Talents at The Healing Gallery in the heart of our beloved Charleston! I had the pleasure of showing my work alongside the photography of Getty represented photographer Daniela Duncan and a collection of handcrafted Brazilian Golden Grass jewelry presented by Vanessa Mendes.
I met Fran and Lou through a cocktail group. After an amazing evening at their home, I asked how they felt about hosting a private viewing of my work. I do love having my work in galleries and public places, but there is something quite special about a private show.
The first thing I love about it is that it is by invitation only. So everyone that comes to the show is a friend, or a friend of a friend. That alone sets a wonderful atmosphere! Secondly, it is an exceptionally VIP crowd. They get a super special opportunity to see a new series before everyone else.
This Sunday I exhibited at The 31st Annual Town of Mount Pleasant Blessing of the Fleet & Seafood Festival at the Waterfront Pier and Park. The festival pays tribute to Mount Pleasant’s local shrimping and fishing industry. There was a boat parade, live music and a tent for the Mount Pleasant Artists Guild, where I had 2 pieces on display.
What a busy event! Luckily the weather was perfect and the crowd enjoyed a wonderful day at the park. I was happy to
Can a place be so inspiring? Well, I have to say it is not just the place, it is the people. Southerners seem to be the friendliest people I’ve met in this country.
When I started dating my husband (we met in Brazil), he said I would love it here. I replied saying that I didn’t care where he lived and that I’d move for him, not for the place. He then said, “If you don’t like Charleston, you will be the first.”
I am currently exhibiting 4 pieces at the Carolina Eyecare Physicians building in Mount Pleasant in benefit of the Vision is Art program.
“Vision Is Art” is a collaboration between local visual artists and Operation Sight. A percentage of the proceeds of all art sold is donated to the foundation. Operation Sight is a nonprofit, community-integrated program whose mission is to restore vision and improve the lives of qualified, uninsured/underinsured South Carolina residents suffering from cataracts by providing cataract surgery to these individuals at no cost.
Late last year I joined both the Mount Pleasant Artist Guild and the Charleston Artist Guild, but only recently I’ve been able to get involved with some of the meetings and activities.
On March 10th, the MPAG set up a nice exhibit at the 22nd Annual Mount Pleasant Art Fest. We had over 80 paintings, between oils, pastels and watercolors. The show looked really nice, with lots of people coming through during the event. Also, there was a jury and I was awarded second place on this show! It was a surprise to me and I could not have asked for a better debut in a show with the Guild.
I am thrilled to share that my work has been selected to be featured at the Mount Pleasant Mayor’s Office for 3 months. It was an absolute pleasure meeting Mayor Will Haynie and Nicole Harvey, the special events manager.
They wrote a very sweet press release, that you can read in full on their website.
MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (March 2, 2018) – Local artist Fer Caggiano’s Laurel Hill Ave
One of my all time favorites, this dragon mural was designed to a very special girl: my step daughter.
Last year I came to the USA to spend the holidays with my boyfriend (now husband). It was an experimental period so we could decide if the international dating was worth it. I decided to offer this mural as a Christmas gift to Bella. She loved the idea and did a very good research to show me all sorts of dragons she liked. Her favorite was a dragon floating over a deep blue background.
