The exhibitions are designed meticulously with unconventional juxtapositions and hanging methods that maintain the artist's integrity in the forefront. Romano includes contemporary works together with historical art and photography alongside occult objects, grimoire books, voodoo altars, and magical objects. This perfect storm of suggestively related objects is sure to stimulate visitors to slip into a hypnotized dreamlike state of consciousness.

One of the most gratifying aspects of being both an artist and a writer is connecting creative people together. I was sitting at my favorite cafe, probably writing something like this, when Oskar, my furry ball and chain started yanking the leash which I had attached to my ankle. Delighted foreign voices emanated from a young Swiss couple who had taken an interest in my pooch. This was my introduction to Sandro Baebler the photographer and his girlfriend and assistant Anja.

This winter, Fridge DC presents Brooklyn-based artist and frequent Juxtapoz contributor, David Molesky, for his second solo exhibition in the US Capital. Drawing from this past year’s widespread upheaval, Molesky has shifted his focus from the turbulence of natural elements to riots. In these recent works, Molesky paints the iron-willed who share supporting roles with crawling fire and billowing smoke. No oppositional force is present in any of the compositions; only a dark abyss appears to be on the receiving end of hurled stones and Molotov cocktails. These paintings are portrayals of humans and elements collaboratively expressing an intense longing for change.

I first met David Dalla Venezia outside the museum that hosted an exhibition of the late pictures of Tiziano Vecellio, who is known simply as “Titian” in America. Considered the most important member of the 16th Century Venetian School, Titian was commonly referred to during life time as “da Cadore,” meaning from the town of his birth: Cadore. Similarly Dalla Venezia’s family name originated from the 18th Century custom to give orphaned children a surname based on the town where they were found.

I met Joe Sorren shortly after moving to the village in Manhattan last summer. At the time, I was working on a couple of Italian art articles and I noticed that one of my facebook acquaintances, was an Italian art journalist living in the city. I needed some advice and we met for a coffee. Her boyfriend turned out to be Joe Sorren and they have become my dearest neighborhood pals ever since.
