IL Faro Restaurant, Downtown Albany New York Opens March 2nd – April 5th, 2018 698 N Pearl St
We are delighted to have our monthly First Friday Local Artist and Complimentary Wine Tasting 5 till 7. Award winning photographer and artist, Hillary Raimo seeks to bridge the art of observation and mindfulness of beauty in her work. As the incoming 2018 President for the Bethlehem Art Association Hillary seeks to nurture the local art community by encouraging artists of all mediums to pursue their talents. Hillary works with acrylics, oils and watercolor and has a broad body of work ranging from large abstract canvases to small intimate portraits.
Everyone who has ever experienced pain, this photograph is for you. Everyone who has felt sadness, loneliness, rejection, hatred, depression, self doubt, this photograph is for you. Everyone who has felt harassed, over powered, vulnerable and scared this photograph is for you. Everyone who has hidden their pain under rosy cheeks and people pleasing this photograph is for you. Everyone who has had their stuff triggered by current events, this photograph is for you. Everyone who has experienced the backlash of hate, this photograph is for you.
Sometimes healing hurts the deepest parts of who we are, so we can explore those caves and find the treasures only certain experiences afford.
This image is a mirror for every one who cares to look.
When you stand before it, honesty is best.

“Somewhere” photograph 11 x 14 Hillary Raimo, SOLD private collection Solo Exhibit April 2017
Just over the ridge, off in the distance……
As the leaves fall, deeply and gently onto the earth, life turns and churns. Directions change, decisions made. The mountains sing their seductive songs. The horizon pulls me gently like a skilled lover. Asking me to expand my own. Palette of change.
