“We have a community of nuns, the Oblates of Jesus the Priest, who live on the 3rd floor of our building.   They are from Mexico and are semi-contemplative, wear the habit and are pretty traditional.  They do the cooking for us as part of their work to sustain their community. Anyhow they visited Joseph’s exhibit and the review is in- they loved it! Sr. Doris told me she really appreciated the connection of the traditional stained glass and the descriptions of the addictions. By the way all of us here deeply admire the sisters for their joy and deep spirituality. So it’s not the Times but it’s a great review none the less!" — Fr. Frank Sabatte, CSP, Director at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle, NY, About Joseph’s “Deliver Us From Our Addictions” solo exhibition 


“One of my favorite pieces is this one here, with Isaac Hayes, this really great stained glass piece by Joseph Cavalieri, another New York artist, highlighting some thing Isaac is know for which is his car collections, and of course his iconic ‘Black Moses’ record album, that came about in the early 1970’s”-- Jeff Kollath, Executive Director of the STAX Museum in Memphis Tennessee. Live segment on WATN TV

Critics’ Pick: “Cavalieri’s illuminated, painted-stained-glass images give a pseudoreligious treatmentto a wide variety of subjects”  -- Ethan La Croix, TIME OUT NEW YORK
