Yes! My Twenty Year Retrospective is up at Spectrum

Thank you for the incredible turnout for my ArtHop reception Thursday night, with a record crowd of over 250 people. I'll also be giving a digital presentation entitled A Walk through Paris on Saturday, September 11, 2010 at Spectrum Gallery 6PM. I'll give you a little bit of the history of Paris, and share a little of the culture as well. This program will be repeated for Alliance Francaise the next afternoon, Sunday September 12, 2PM at Cafe Revue (620 E. Olive - two doors away from Spectrum with a reception to follow).

A big thanks to Donald Munor and the super article in the Fresno BEE. Here's what he had to say:

Title: Artist Rebecca Caraveo to present 20 years of work

An artist's personal history is wrapped up in many works. Take Rebecca Caraveo, who today opens what she's calling a 20-year retrospective of her photographic work at Spectrum Art Gallery, 608 E. Olive Ave. Fresno, California

The opening is part of ArtHop, an open house of galleries and studios held 5-8 p.m. on the first and third Thursdays of each month in the Tower District and downtown.
When Caraveo was just getting started as an artist, she decided to enter a photo contest at Hollywood Camera in the Manchester Center mall. Her entry was a shot of a skateboarder at dusk in Clovis. She wasn't sure when the winners would be announced.
A week or two after she took the photo, her father, David Caraveo, went into the veterans hospital with intestinal cancer.

"He was also an amateur photographer and used to work in the darkroom before he had the family," Caraveo says. "Every day he'd ask if I'd heard if I'd won, and every day nothing. He passed away Sept. 26, and on Sept. 27 I got a call saying I had won first place. My bittersweet victory. Twenty years later, to the day, I am having my artist's reception the last day of the show."

Caraveo, who is known for her hand-colored photographs and her intense interest in all things French, lists as her inspiration such artists as Maurice Utrillo, Amedeo Modigliani and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, who painted the people and streets of Paris, especially their beloved Montmartre.The retrospective, titled "Fate Knows No Distance," includes the skateboard photo, of course, along with some other significant moments from her career, including the first photo she showed at Spectrum.

"I also am showing new images of Paris that I have never shown, and are straight digital, another thing I have never done. I am kind of all over the board at this show, but I am celebrating myself and my life and my friends, family and acquaintances who have made it so interesting along the way."
An evening with the artist featuring a digital presentation called "A Walk Through Paris" will be held 6-8 p.m. Sept. 11 at Spectrum.

Whoosh, that flew by, didn't it?

I really love Paris, and had another wonderful adventure, made new friends, ate up and even brought home a little fashion. Fabiola and I played a few songs Dennis and Alex from the Hot Rocks at a rockabilly event in Champeaux, outside of Paris.

We had a few showers and sprinkles now and then, but the weather was exceptional this visit. Not like when we braved the zero degree days a couple of years back. No metro strike either.

I did have a chance to visit Musee Montparnasse, somehow thinking I would see a Modigliani I hadn't seen, but actually they only display rotating exhibits. This one was on Voodoo, Haiti and the French. I tried to find the Musee des Vampyres, but didn't. And I also tried to visit the Musee de Magie & Curiosities located in the Marquis de Sade's former home, but it was closed.

Fantastically enough we did see Espace Dali and it is utterly fantastic. His bronzes were juxtaposed with gold and diamond 'jewelry' miniatures. Absolutely beautiful.

Was fortunate enough to dine at La Cochonaille three times with different groups of people, and of course, had steak au poivre every time. Went to the flower and bird shops on the square of La Cite. A very very nice spot to pick up cute gifts of Paris that aren't in every gift shop. Around each site you'll find dozens of shops...a fun spot for tourist shops and restaurants, instead of walking down the river from the Seine to Place St. Michel...slip down the street between St. Severin and the stores. Wait until you get almost to the end, and turn left instead of right and you'll find La Cochonaille. If you go back several times, I promise the waiters will remember you.
