Galleria is italian for gallery. â€œA room for the display or sale of works of artâ€?. The purpose of this Magazine is to gather great quality work from Toronto based and international artists and bring it to the public to increase awarness and passion for art. Not only famous museums or wellknown artists will be featured, but also emerging talent and independent studios and work from around the globe. Every month, a new issue will feature an interview with an artist that is holding an interesting exhibit at the moment, so our readers can go check it out immediately. The idea is to bring great content in a very modern and clean design, after all it is about Art.This is our fist issue and it is filled up with great work in Photography, Sculpture, Graphic Design, Installation, Film and Architecture. Digg in! We hope you have as much fun as we had putting this Magazine together.

dele, Gloria, Arianna and Ilaria (GAIA) met at ISIA Firenze and it was an immediate understanding and collaboration on projects of Product & Communication Design. They all reflect and work with inspiration and creativity on the issues of living, the spatial and conceptual barriers/ boundaries, the expression of the self in the domestic and urban environment. Gloria Pizzilli is illustrator. With great passion and humility she engages in projects focusing simply on the best. From drawing to design she crosses all forms of expression, leaving her mark. Arianna Petrakis is half Greek, half Italian. From here, two tracks: a rational one - for investigating, understanding and resolving without surrender—and an irrational one—for catching all the emotional nuances of the project with great ease. Ilaria Pacini is a singer. Equipped with depth of thought and expression, keen to address all the issues without forgetting to let her taste and attention to detail pass through. Adele Bacci is a performer. A visionary and lucid mind, capable of developing to the world multidisciplinary projects fresh and intriguing, finalizing into communication the construction of unheard suggestions on the present.

What was the process of conceptually developing such project? Did you sit down over coffee and discuss the notions of isolation, intimacy, and ornamentation? How does a project is done?
VeaSYBle truly encompasses a holistic completion of physical and emotional facets masterfully. in spite of its surrealism, the artifact goes beyond mere eccentricity, searching for intimacy where it seems impossible. it is a performance, a type of communication tool, a true declaration of disconnection from the surrounding reality”.

A project like this comes to life almost as a joke. When a design group gets together for the designing pleasure, you never know what is for real and what is just for fun, how many words, over coffee or between phone calls, are to take seriously and how many are to reject up front and, above all, when it will all come together. To start with, we put ideas, books, thoughts on the table, and we take a look at colleagues’ and artists’ work. This is the inspirational part, the most fun and most inconstant, which serves to bring the intervention point into focus. After this part comes the design challenge, the research for techniques and solutions to keep faith with the established concept. To have an idea is relatively simple, to make it real is more difficult, it is a whole different thing. The workshop starts here: technical and material research and structural test, shaping experiments followed tirelessly, to then to become the Veasyble. In times when our most intimate of domestic moments seem to be with devices of the technology, with Veasyble, it seems to remind us of a
true type of beauty and necessity to be within ourselves and or even share a physical connection to another individual. Veasyble. Unfold a beautiful intimacy is a set of objects ready to use to create intimacy any time, any place, on various levels. How important was it to have a transitional product? And was there any inspiration to this or other historical periods? Transformability was a necessary requisite for the birth of this project. Among the inspiring principles we left out the one which, maybe, explains the Veasyble genesis best of all, that is collapsibility. From here the concept of folding and the study of an effective pattern capable of constructing the “beautiful intimacy” we seek. We study functioning prototypes, in scale and real size, throughout the design process, so we can understand the limits and growth margins of the project. The folding pattern, which sets up our ruff, was designed after a series of folding experiments and it was immediately returned to the appropriate scale to refer to this historical period. The Veasyble ruff is a self-structuring helix, which binds the neck without choking. A modulating object of which you can adjust height and diameter. It follows your mood transforming itself. The entire set moves from the same presuppositions and was designed to transform, but the ruff is, definitely, the most wearable and fascinating object. The accessories are quite provocative and interesting, but the pieces in isolation are a direct discourse on our social complexity. How can we relate to these isolation episodes? Our aim was to put emphasis on a frequent mood: ignoring others, isolating ourselves when we feel out of sorts with the environment, searching for intimacy where it seems impossible. Veasyble is a forceful exhibition of our personality. Like every accessory, it carries a powerful aesthetic message, a barrier that is a dominant aesthetic of privacy that are illusory and, very often, insubstantial. In spite of its surrealism, Veasyble goes beyond mere eccentricity, it is a performance, a communication tool, a declaration of disconnection from the surrounding reality. april 2012 Galleria
Female intake annually in culinary programs vs. female representation at the executive chef level
Equal numbers of males and females rate compensation as important. However, females earn roughly 24% lessâ€” an average of $17,000 less per year.
Male vs. female earning power in professional kitchens.
96% of males and 92% of females consider themselves very or somewhat ambitious.
At George Brown Chef School, Canadaâ€™s largest culinary educator, there is a 41% female intake annually in culinary programs. However, female representation at the executive chef level remains lower than 13%.
Something happens for women between the bright-eyed optimism of assuming this career, and what should be the culmination of a normal career span in attaining an executive chef level position.
