Traveling to Italy with the Touching Water artists

A wonderful trip to Venice and Poffabro in the fall ’19 with 6 other artists from Peregrine Press along with Sola from Iceland and Mary from Ireland (we first met them several years ago at Ballinglen Arts Foundation in Ireland). Joining us on this trip were Helga from Iceland and Margie from upstate NY.  We saw as much of the Biennale art as we could cram in in three days along with print studio visits, general sightseeing and lots of good food. Then onto Poffabro where we stayed in old stone houses, bonded with Benedictine nuns, gave demonstrations, hiked amongst mushroom gatherers, ate more good food, exhibited our work, did a temporary art installation in a dry river bed, visited archaeological museums, Celtic grottos, high school art students and drank a bunch of wine.  Now the group wonders…where to next time?
