Author Archives: Ivanhoe Artists

The Ivanhoe Artists Mosaic Inc, was founded by Don Kommit, Christine Conforti, Michael De Patria, Ron Emolo, Al Facas, and Carolyn Sage Martourano. We spent Wednesday nights over coffee and we planned and implemented our art events. In 2006 IAM became a not for profit arts organization, offering continual arts events and providing arts to the community until 2013, when we dissolved the IAM as a Not for profit Entity. The Ivanhoe Artists website and blog remains as a testament to the work done. The work here was created and maintained by Christine Conforti who authored it in order to inform the public of the events and to use the blog as a creative out post and documentation of the work presented. Nothing will ever come close to the amount of work done at the Ivanhoe Wheelhouse as it was a unique and safe place for all who participated. This blog was my gift to the public, a labor of love that I hope to one day share in new ways.
