Viorica Colpacci - Fire and Light -ICR New York

 Viorica Colpacci was born in Romania and emigrated to the United States in 1977. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts “N. Grigorescu” in Bucharest and continued her studies in New York, at the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn College and New York University, from where she earned a MA in Studio Art. 

Her early works include ceramic sculpture, paintings, icons, alfresco murals, architectural design in ceramics and porcelain as well as industrial design in ceramics, glass, stainless steel and plastic. After 1977, in the U.S., she created abstract sculptures in ceramic, bronze, welded and painted steel, light sculpture, digital prints, photography, fashion and industrial design.

In sculpture her primary concern for more than twenty years is to represent the spiritual dimension of life, using modern technology and materials. She uses welded steel and light as physical, metaphorical and metaphysical elements.  

She taught art in New York City public schools and had many exhibitions in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. She participated in international conferences, published essays on art and runs an art gallery showing in alternative spaces. 

She founded a sacred art workshop for children in Bucharest.

Nicu Rotaru multiplu campion si alpinist de top aduce steagul Romaniei pe cele mai inalte culmi

  .   GLW: CIne este sportivul Nicu Rotaru, as vrea sa te introduci in cateva cuvinte! NR :Ma numesc Nicu Rotaru,am 46 de ani si vreau "sa ma prezint" Am practicat rugby 5 ani dar in urma unor multiple fracturi a trebuit sa renunt la acest minunat sport si sa continui pentru ca simteam ca pot mai mult. De notat ca in anul 1991 am iesit vice campion national cu echipa Asadar,sala de forta a devenit a doua casa a mea,si incepand din anul 1992 nu mai intrerupt antrenamentele.... Curand au aparut si rezultatele fiind multiplu medaliat la campionatele nationale,iar in anul 2007 succesul s-a conturat in titlul de campion balcanic la categoria +100 kg culturism. In urmatorul an am vrut o schimbare si am schimbat strategia de antrenament,respectiv in 2008 am castigat titlul de cel mai puternic om din Romania GLW: De unde vine  pasiunea si inspiratia pentru alpinism?    NR:  Am descoperit alpinismul si dragostea de munte..... Era o pasiune mai veche care am reusit sa o pun in practica
