On a remote island in Virginia’s Eastern Shore, Vivian Cavalieri fashions multimedia assemblages addressing societal issues including equality, victim’s rights, and the environment. A lifetime art lover, Cavalieri is self-taught, her palette and style deeply influenced by her Venetian heritage. She now focuses exclusively on multimedia assemblages after having spent 20 years as an attorney representing non-profits and another 10 designing ornate, multi-strand necklaces sold primarily through boutiques.
Despite her having only recently begun marketing these assemblages, Cavalieri’s work has been included in over 25 juried exhibitions, both in-person and virtual. Six of her works can be seen in the “Woven” exhibit that opened at the Sasse Museum in Los Angeles in May 2023 and travels to France in August, and to Ireland in November. Five of her assemblages were recently shown on screens in London and Athens, and five others will be seen in Tribeca this October.
