Whenever possible, we try to showcase the talents of the creative professionals we respect both within Jackson and beyond. Last Fall presented an opportunity of rare creative synchronicity when our local friend, Mira J. Lee, introduced us to two Italian artists—Maria Teresa Meloni and Marco Caratelli. Working with our inspired friends at WRJ Design, we co-presented an exhibition of Maria Teresa’s photographs and Marco’s tempera paintings. The opening, graciously attended by more than 50 guests, became a celebration of Italian aesthetics—from the authentic aperitivo served to the artists’ reinterpretations of Renaissance techniques and themes. As welcome, Morgan Bruemmer introduced each artist, tracing their career trajectory from Italy, then contextualing their oeuvres within art historical currents before recognizing the enthusiasm of TCCG’s community. “The Medicis are in Jackson Hole,” he said.
