You will come to my private studio which is in the Port Morris section of the South Bronx. You will see where and how I create my art. I will go through each step involved. From creating a cast from a live model to welding steel. I will show you works in progress, while I explain in more detail what goes into my process, and what inspires me. You can roam around my studio while I talk and of course, ask as many questions as you like. Then we will have some wine and other snacks before we head upstairs in my house to see a collection of some of my finished pieces.I'll talk more about the work you are viewing, I look forward to hearing any thoughts or questions you have about the work. We will have more wine, etc and you can move around freely. Exploring the work privately or head back to the studio. It's up to you. I will be moving around too. Talking to everyone and answering any questions you may have. This is a unique opportunity to see behind the scenes of an artists creative process. Hope to see you there. www.jalfieri.com
