A special presentation from the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse.  Our first podcast during these pandemic times…

 

In the Fall of 2017, the now shuttered brick-and-mortar location of the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse hosted “Baseball in Black and White: The Watercolor Paintings of James Fiorentino.

 

In the Fall of 2021, the Studio 7 Fine Art Gallery in Bernardsville NJ hosted James Fiorentino and “Baseball in Black and White: Extra Innings.

 

I sat down at the beautiful Studio 7 gallery with my long-time friend and we had a wide ranging “inside baseball” discussion that touched on memories through the years, the life — and gifts — of an artist, mentors, watercolor painting, ballplayers, the cake boss, passion, process, the feeling when a painting is finished, and more.

 

On Friday, December 10, we’ll be back at the Studio 7 Fine Art Gallery in Bernardsville NJ.  If you’re anywhere close to the area, stop by between 6:00 - 9:00 PM.  Meet James and see his spectacular original black and white watercolor paintings, while enjoying treats and a glass of wine.  I’ll be conducting in-person video interviews for my multimedia project — “The Memory of America: Remember Your First Baseball Game.”  The interviews take only 15 minutes or so.  Would love to capture your story that evening.

 

Hope to see you then.  In the meantime, pull up a chair, relax, and enjoy our conversation…

 

With love from New York,

Jay
