John Pema — Photographer (Natick, Massachusetts) Website: www.johnstake.com
John Pema’s love for photography started during his high school years and turned out to be a lifelong romance. His medium is film and digital, and most of his work is done utilizing the computer for imaging and printing. All of his work is done in­house, including mounting and framing. He has featured his work at several exhibits in the Boston Metro­West area during the past 10 years. John also presented his work at the St. George Cathedral Spring Digital Photography Exhibit in May 2013. From time to time, he has taken photographs at the request of Fr. Arthur Liolin.

Following his military service, John attended Drexel University in Philadelphia, where he received a degree in Mechanical Engineering. His career was in the power and environmental industries.

Elisa Adams — Sculptor (Concord, Massachusetts) Website: www.elisaadamssculptor.com
Art has been a part of Elisa Adams’ life since she was very young. Over the years, she has delved into different art forms, including fabric art (weaving and quilting), drawing, and painting. For the past several years, she has focused on stone sculpting. Elisa’s work is largely concept art; she looks to discover the world in the object. Elisa is fascinated by spirals, curves, and twists. She has carved representational and realistic sculptures of waves, shells, and other ocean finds. Like her abstract work, these sculptures have smooth, rolling curves and openings. Elisa attended classes at the DeCordova Museum School in Lincoln, MA from 2003–
2004, where she studied sculpture in stone and wood, and then continued for another several years under the guidance of Ann Deluty, a sculptor and graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, who teaches stone and wood carving in the Boston area. Since 2004, Elisa has been studying stone sculpture at Randolph Associates Fine Arts in Belmont, MA. During the past decade, she has exhibited her works at shows throughout the Boston area. Elisa is longtime member of the Cambridge Art Association, the Concord Art Association, and the New England Sculpture Association. In addition, she maintains a private chiropractic practice in Lexington, MA. Elisa e ka bere artin pjese te jetes qe ne moshe te re. Me kalimin e viteve ka bere kerkime ne forma te ndryshme te tij duke perfshire artin e veshjes (trikotimin dhe punimin e guvertave), vizatimin dhe pikturen. Gjate viteve te fundit eshte fokusuar ne skulpturat e gurit. Punen e ka mbeshtetur gjeresisht ne konceptin e artit; duke kerkuar te zbuloje boten ne objekt. Elisa eshte e mrekulluar pas spiraleve, kurbave dhe perdredhjeve. Ajo ka gdhendur skulptura imagjinative dhe realiste te dallgeve, guackave, dhe gjetjeve te tjera te botes oqeanike. Ashtu si imagjinata dhe abstrakja e saj, skulpturat jane te zbutura me kurba rrotulluese e te hapura. Elisa ndoqi studimet ne shkollen e muzeumit DeCordova te Lincoln­it, MA nga 2003 ne 2004, ne degen e skulptures ne gure dhe dru, dhe vazhdoi per disa vjete nen drejtimin e Ann Deluty, skulptore e diplomuar nga shkolla e muzeut te arteve te bukura ne Boston qe instrukton gdhendjen e gurit ne Boston.

Sterjo Shkodrani — Painter (Burlington, Massachusetts) Website: www.ClassicArtworks.com
A renowned classical artist, Sterjo Shkodrani has a distinct affection for the Renaissance era. His paintings are rooted deeply in this era, with landscapes and still lifes that unfold simply, but evoke complex feelings. Born in Voskopoja, Albania, Sterjo immigrated to Boston in 2010 at the age of 70 to be close to his daughters and grandchildren. In Albania, he was an active and well­known member of the Cultural and Artistic Society of
the city of Korçe, and a valued member of the city’s cultural life. He participated in several art exhibits, co­founded cultural societies, was a member of the Aromanian choir, and assisted in the historic research and documentation of his hometown, Voskopoja. The mountainous landscape of Albania has often been the inspiration for his art works and will always have a special place in his heart. Upon the collapse of the Communist dictatorship in Albania, he played an important role in restoring the destroyed church icons in many Greek Orthodox churches. Sterjo has participated in several successful exhibits in the Boston area, including sole exhibits in all three Albanian Orthodox Churches in South Boston, and at St. Mary’s Assumption Albanian Orthodox Church in Worcester, MA. He has also participated in exhibits at Boston City Hall, the Boston InterContinental Hotel, and Anthony’s Pier 4 Restaurant. These exhibits were widely welcomed and earned high accolades for their superior quality and subject matter.
Sterjo’s interests extend beyond the visual arts to classical music, playing both the violin and guitar. He enjoys spending time with his family and spends his days with his paintbrush and watercolors, usually finishing a painting each day, and produces only original works.

Enton Panariti — Painter (Malden, MA)
e­mail [email protected]
To capture the essence of nature is Enton Panariti’s goal as an artist. Born in Tirana, Albania, he has a deep love for nature, and not only values it, but also respects it. Above all, he believes that art should bring beauty to people’s lives. The objects in his artwork include all the things we see around us. The main motivation behind his paintings is to see through and beyond the mere simple object. Blue, red, and yellow are Enton’s favorite colors. He likes mixing and spreading them on canvas in such a way as to create the effect of surprise that a colorful bunch of flower gives us when we look at it. The real object is transformed into an abstract image, with the strong colors gaining the most attention. What is important, he says, is to enhance the reality that will be built into the canvas. Everything is there; one just needs to be creative and find a way to paint it and turn that reality into art. While Enton plans most of his paintings, he always leaves something to spontaneity.
Since 1994, Enton has exhibited his paintings in galleries in the United States, including at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, as well as in several countries in Europe.
Per Entonin, qellimi I artistit mbetet te kape esencen e natyres. I lindur ne Tirane, gjithmone eshte karakterizuar per dashurine e thelle per natyren, jo vetem duke e vleresuar por respektuar ate.
Mbi te gjitha, ai beson se arti duhet te sjelle bukuri ne jeten e njerzve. Cdo gje ne punen e tij artistike rrok mjedisin qe na rrethon. Motivimi kryesor i piktures, per te, vjen nga depertimi dhe kalimi pertej objektit te mirefillte e te thjeshte. Ngjyrat e tij me te preferuara jane bluja, e kuqja dhe e verdha. I pelqen ti perzjeje e shperndaje ne kanvas ne menyre te tille qe te krijoje efektin e te papritures qe nje buqete lulesh shumengjyreshe mund te dhuronte duke e pare. Per te, objekti real transformohet ne imazh abstrakt,ne saj te ngjyrave fekse qe te rrokin vemendjen. Ajo qe ka rendesi, thote Entoni, eshte te ngresh realitetin artistikisht duke e ndertuar ne kanvas. Asgje nuk mungon; mjafton te jesh krijues e te gjesh nje menyre tenden per ta kthyer realitetin ne art. Edhe kur I planifikon me te shumten e punimeve, gjithesesi, ai gjithmone I le dicka spontaneitetit.
Qe prej 1994, Entoni ka ekspozuar piktura ne galerite e Shteteve te Bashkuara, duke perfshire ato ne muzeun e Arteve te bukura ne Boston, si edhe ne disa vende te Europes, si Shqiperi, Itali e Angli.

Ligor Luarasi — Painter (Levittown, PA) Website: wwwfacebook.com.ligorluarasi Ligor Luarasi discovered and developed his artistic gifts early in life. Born in 1941 in Korce, Albania, a city known for its traditions and culture, he experienced his first emotional attachment to art when he visited the Palace of Culture of Korca, where the paintings he saw impressed him to the depths of his soul. The more time he spent enjoying the paintings, the stronger was his desire to want to experience color’s power in ‘transforming’ it into snow, water, sky, winter, fruit, skin and space. He was greatly influenced by the famous Albanian impressionist Vangjush Mio, as well as Vangjush Tushi, Rafail Dembo and Ilo Xhane. From little, he learned he had the gift of sensitivity and comprehension, and was acknowledged by his teachers for the use of color and impressions. Courier Times valued him as a “A beautiful soul that speaks through strokes of color and makes nature dance.” His canvases shows no hesitation. His bold, vibrant brush strokes and fluid colors capture the essence of the scene with a restless energy and a rhythm of movement. Inspired by his experiences, Ligor took the opportunity to attend classes for young artists, where he learned from Mio’s paintings the marvel of color mixing and usage, and the basics of the art. He later graduated from Korca’s School of Fine Arts. Ligor immigrated to the US in 1991, where he now continues his artistic journey, living and working in Philadelphia. He has produced approximately 878 paintings, and has displayed his works at several exhibitions in both the US and Albania, with themes taken from his life in both countries, including his early life in Albania. Some of his paintings are displayed in collections in Greece, Italy, and Canada. Ligor Luarasi zbuloi dhe zhvilloi dhuntite e tij artistike qysh ne moshe te vogel. I lindur ne 1941 ne Korce te Shqiperise, qytet ky i njohur per traditat dhe kulturen, ai perjetoi lidhjet e hershme emocionale me artin kur vizitoi pallatin e cultures se qytetit per here te pare. Pikturat e varura ne mure e preken ate thelle ne shpirt. Sa me shume kohe kalonte duke shijuar pikturat, aq me e madhe ishte deshira e tij per te perjetuar fuqine transformuese te ngjyrave duke i kthyer ato ne bore, uje, qiell, dimer, fruta, etj. Ai u influencua jashtezakonisht nga i famshmi impressionist piktori Vangjush Mio, si dhe nga Vangjush Tushi, Rafail Dembo dhe Ilo Xhane. Qysh i vogel, ai mesoi se kishte dhuntine e ndjeshmerise dhe kapjes se ngjyrave dhe artit te piktures dhe pergezohej prej mesuesve te tij per perdorimin e ngjyrave dhe impresioneve. Gazeta Courier Times e ka vleresuar “si nje shpirt i bukur qe flet nepermjet gotitjeve te ngjyrave dhe e ben natyren te vallezoje”. Pikturat e tij nuk kane asnje hezitim. Perdorimi i furces me ngjyra te forta dhe te ndezura kapen esencen e natyures me nje energji te cmueshme dhe levizje me rritem. I frymezuar nga eksperiencat e tij, Ligori u regjistrua tek grupi i artit te pioniereve, ku filloi te njohej me afer me Mion dhe perdorimin e tij te ngjyrave, si dhe te mesonte bazat e artit. Me vone ai mbaroi Liceun Artistik te Korces. Ligori emigroi ne SHBA ne 1991 ku ai vazhdon dhe sot udhetimin e tij artistic, duke jetuar dhe punuar ne Philadelphia. Ai ka prodhuar 878 piktura dhe i ka paraqitur ato ne ekspozita ne SHBA dhe Shqiperi. Temat jane marre nga jeta ne te dy kontinentet, duke perfshire dhe vitet e hershme ne Shqiperi. Disa nga pikturat jane paraqitur si koleksion ne Greqi, Italy dhe Canada.

Neka Doko­ Photographer, Fan S. Noli Library Archivist (Boston, MA) Facebook Page: Fan Noli Library/Archive – Digital Projects
Neka Doko’s involvement with digital photography was first inspired by the French architectural heritage of Boston, which has been her home since she arrived from Albania more than a decade ago. Her very first photograph in Boston, taken in the McKim Building of the Boston Public Library, depicts the mural of Puvis de Chevannes’ Les Muses Inspiratrices Acclament le Génie, Messager de Lumière (The Muses of Inspiration Welcoming the Messenger of Light). Originally from Berat, Albania, she has a deep love of the French culture and language, having lived in France for almost four years while studying in Montpellier and Paris. Over the years, Neka’s photodocumentation has become an indispensable instrument in promoting all new digital projects of her archival work at St. George Cathedral. Her detailed descriptive photography is helping her to establish a digital interactive archive between the Fan S. Noli Library and Cultural Center and its virtual visitors from the Albanian­American community.
Neka experiments in two different genres in digital photography: self­portraits and ecological artistic photography. She mostly exercised the self­portrait in the beginning as a visual therapeutic technique as a new photographer, in order to fully explore the expression of her inner self, before turning her attention to an infinite array of external subjects. Her real passion is now in capturing eco­digital images of the variable seasonable and sometimes extreme weather changes in New England. Neka aims to use her eco­photography for a two­fold purpose: for preserving the environment, and for embracing the wild beauty of the northeastern US nature as it is continues to evolve. Today’s exhibit is Neka’s second, having initially displayed her works at the St. George Cathedral Spring Digital Photography Exhibit in May 2013, along with John Pema. Her artistic signature one can see on each image angles, represents her given inter­cultural identity: Albframe.
Neka Doko hyri ne artin e fotografise dixhitale e frymezuar nga trashegimia arkitekturale franceze ne Boston, ku dhe ndihet si ne vendin e saj qe prej me shume se nje dekade. Foton e pare ne vitin 2001 e kapi ne hyrjen e brendshme te Godines McKim te bibliotekes qendrore te Boston­it, ne pikturen murale nga Puvis de Chevannes’ Les Muses Inspiratrices Acclament le Génie, Messager de Lumière (Muzat frymezuese ndjellin gjenine­ perhapesin e drites). Gjate viteve, Neka ka ushtruar foton dukumentare per promovimin e projekteve te reja dixhitale ne punen arkivore te Katedrales se Shen Gjergjit. Fotografia e detajuar deskriptive e ka ndihmuar per te krijuar nje ure komunikimi ndermjet Bibliotekes noliane, arkives dixhitale me qendren kulturore e te gjithe vizitoret virtuale brenda e jashte komunitetit shqiptaro­amerikan.
Neka eksperimenton ne dy zhanre te ndryshme: auto­portrete dhe fotografi ekologjike artistike. E ushtroi me teper auto­portretin si teknike vizio­terapie si fotografe e re qe kerkonte te eksploronte boten e brendshme perpara se te hidhte veshtrimin ne shtrirjen pa fund te objekteve te jashtme. Pasioni I saj I vertete eshte fotoja eko­dixhitale per te kapur nuancat sezonale te klimes shpesh ekstreme te Anglise se re. Eko­fotografia e saj ka dy qellime: te ruaje mjedisin, dhe te rroke bukurine e eger te natyres e klimes verilindore ashtu si vjen. Kjo ekspozite eshte e dyta e saj e hapur ne Shen Gjergj ne fotografine dixhitale te pranveres se kaluar me John Pemen. Firma artistike qe mund te shihni ne cdo kend te fotove te saj perfaqeson identitetin nderkulturor qe fati I ka dhuruar: Albframe.
