Elizabeth Hasegawa Agresta
Elizabeth is a third generation artist, carrying on a family legacy in the creative arts, which includes: kimono design, Japanese pottery, culinary arts, photography, painting, writing, and poetry.
Elizabeth studied painting, print-making, and exploratory mixed media at Silvermine Art in New Canaan, CT. While there, she was selected into a small independent experimental studies group led by master artist, David Dunlop. This environment facilitated the development of her very own mixed media innovations and new ways of expressing her message of beauty, wonder, and emotion in everyday experiences.
As a child, he possessed an intense passion for drawing, which quickly flourished with the support of his father. Dashamir attended high school of art in Tirana, followed by his formal education at the Academy of Art in Tirana.
Dashamir is an award-winning artist for over 30 years, with his work displayed and exhibited in Europe, and the U.S. His work includes many mediums of paint, including oil, acrylic, watercolor, as well as mixed media. His art work mainly depicts human being and Nature, opening up endless possibilities in exploring my subject’s inner world, and maybe this is the best possible translation of the simple language of the art.

Nazmi Hoxha (Oxa) was born in Albania, on October 15, 1955. Painting has always been an essential part of his life. He is currently living in New York. In 1978 he graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Tirana, Albania. In 1990 was awarded the title "Free Artist" (that is to work freely by not being bound by the obligations of common employment or group thinking status.
His work can be found in numerous private, public and corporate collections both in the United States and Europe, and has been seen in many exhibitions, capturing and revealing the invisible reality hidden beneath the visible surface. His oil paintigs are characterized by a contemporary imagery, sometimes rendered in a more realistic style, and other times as theme suggests, a semi-representational and at times magical one.
The Marubi Collection is a UNESCO world heritage photographic archive of over 150,000 original negatives depicting scenic landscapes and daily life in Northern Albania between 1850-1940. These historical documents, mostly unedited works and predominantly on silver bromide glass plates, serve as a visual memory of the Albanian people’s national identity and cultural evolution.
