This was a jaw dropping pleasant surprise. I was asked by the ALWAYS fabulous Rio Hamilton to answer a few questions for him. I thought nothing of it at first. The questions were fun and light hearted but thought provoking as well. I was rather busy at the time and it took a bit for me to respond. But he is detail oriented and the ultimate professional and kept following up. And then...this morning I see the link. He makes everything sound interesting - including me!
I'm a genuine fan long before we even met. Look up the video of his place highlighted on Open House NYC and you'll catch a glimpse of his impecable taste and his warm and infectious personality. Must admit - I took screen shots of the video because I so loved how his home was designed.
Mr. Hamilton has been a luxury lifestyle industry insider and connector for over 15 years. His expertise has a wide range but and is at its best cultivating and promoting creative luxury brands. Imagine how honored I must feel right now!
For those interested or involved in art, design, architecture, fashion and all things chic, Mr. Hamilton is a must follow! He is at the forefront of all things design. His fashionable appearances at design events are always memorable and substantive. Incredibly grateful to have had the chance to be part of this project. And yes... I'm gushing - but the love is real.
These are Rio's links:

We compliment other wonderful events and scientific presentations on the East End highlighting the importance of preserving the natural beauty around us. eARThHamptons focuses on the concept that our immediate environs and what makes up “home and habitat” can be beautiful while still honoring sustainable practices. The work of artists, designers, architects, landscapers, and builders combined to make healthier beautiful environments is a natural fit based on common ground. Anahi, who is also an agent with Douglas Elliman, is pursuing green certification to work with clients searching for those features in their homes. The art and design worlds work seamlessly with real estate.
“We have been so fortunate to have a wonderful attendance and a growing following every year. Our 2017 Saturday evening reception brought over 300 guests. We continue to look forward to growing an enjoyable way to combine all the elements that make up our habitats at large and bring more attention to sustainable practices in the art and design world as well as our everyday lives”
This year’s roster of artists brings a mix of eclectic styles and genres that range from sculpture, fine art abstracts and photography, to contemporary art.

Artist/Realtor - Sounds complicated but it's a perfect fit. Since childhood, I have found inspiration from a pretty eclectic variety of sources. Nature, graffiti, chipping walls, architecture, fine stitching... My grandmother was a fine seamstress to "society ladies" as she would call them. Remnants of fine fabrics turned up on cute little dresses for me. Many of my figurative paintings like "Vanity Fair" and "Orchidea" were inspired by my visions of beautiful women at grand balls. "Vanity Fair" was part of Robin Baron's spaces at interior design charity Holiday House in support of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
I like looking up - open skies - bird watching - swirling leaves - water towers - tall buildings... Ever look up in New York City? It always amazes me to see the details high up when the only way anyone could see them is through windows of adjacent buildings. I grew up in Montevideo, the home of some pretty renowned architects like Rafael Vinoly. Architectural details and the patina of old doors still get me! So yes, put simply, I love real estate too.
The minute after my paintings are finished, I become aware that they will become part of a different environment from there where they were created. They will eventually be finding a new home to fulfill their purpose becoming part of someone else's life. Seeking the perfect new home, for my artwork or for my friends and clients, is the perfect canvas and I love being a matchmaker for both! So so luck to be working with Douglas Elliman which has a history of supporting the arts and working with great architects like Vinoly! Douglas Elliman is in it's fifth year of being a sponsor of Art Basel Miami.

Holiday House, founded in 2008 by interior designer and breast cancer survivor Iris Dankner, is an interior design showhouse where top interior designers and lifestyle brands showcase their talent to raise critical funds for the prevention and cure of breast cancer.
In 2017, Holiday House will celebrate its tenth year of showhouses with the 10th annual Holiday House NYC at the Academy Mansion in NYC, the inaugural Holiday House London, and the launch of Holiday House: Ten Years of Decorating for a Cure, a beautiful coffee table book documenting Holiday House’s history from Pointed Leaf Press. Iris is also celebrating twenty years as a survivor!
Iris created the first Holiday House to combine her two passions – her love of design and her efforts to help women in need – at to create the first designer showhouse in New York City to benefit a breast cancer organization. The NYC showhouse has taken place eight times at the historic Academy Mansion on the Upper East Side’s Gold Coast, and once in two luxe townhouses in Manhattan’s lively SoHo neighborhood.
In its ten year history, Holiday House has featured top interior designers, received critical acclaim, been supported and endorsed by some of the most celebrated global luxury brands, and expanded to the Hamptons with a summer showhouse. Since partnering with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Holiday House has granted over a million dollars to this renowned charity that invests 91 cents of every dollar to support it’s mission of ending breast cancer by advancing the world’s most groundbreaking research.
Holiday House is unique because each design space is themed around a holiday or special moment in life that inspires the designer. The event is as much about celebrating life as it is about fighting breast cancer.

Over Columbus Day weekend, you can celebrate the East End's legendary art history as you admire works featured in Mostly Abstract V at Ashawagh Hall in East Hampton, a venue that has shown masterpieces by Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock.
"In keeping with the rich and storied tradition of abstract expressionist exhibitions at Ashawagh Hall, a diverse group of artists will present Mostly Abstract V," Beth Barry, who is included in the show, shared. "These artists create work that is a visceral and emotional response to the world, not a literal one."
Mostly Abstract V will highlight pieces from Beth Barry, Barbara Bilotta, Anahi DeCanio, Anna Franklin, Mary Milne, Katherine Hammond, Bo Parsons, Sheila Rotner, Lieve Theirs, and Mark Zimmerman.
About Last Night - Mixed Media on Canvas - Anahi DeCanio
"My work continues to shift to reflect a freer 'unedited' style," DeCanio shared. "The layers are all still there but the textures and texts that might have been hidden in the past have become more apparent and form an integral part of the visible final image. I'm allowing the viewer to come into an intimate space not shared before. It's been a bit of a challenging journey but very exciting."
The pop up art show will be on display on Saturday, October 7 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Sunday, October 8 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Monday, October 9 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. An opening reception will be held on Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m.
"The paintings and sculptures are an external expression of an internal, intuitive process," added Barry.
Admission to Mostly Abstract V is free.
Ashawagh Hall is located at 780 Springs Fireplace Road in East Hampton.
