About the Varo Registry

Painting: Embroidering Earth's Mantle
(detail)"Embroidering Earth's Mantle" 1961, by Remedios Varo

The Varo Registry was founded in 1996 by Robin Masi, MFA, Ed.M., Ed.D. candidate. Interested in using the then new Internet technology to promote women artists, she named the site after one of the most respected artists in the twentieth century, Remedios Varo. Permission was granted by Varo's widower, Walter Gruen, to name the site after his beloved wife and to use her images for the promotion of women artists from all over the world.

Masi is an assistant professor, Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and an artist. Her paintings and charcoals have been featured in exhibitions in New England, California, Washington D.C. and New York. Her play Vanishing Point has been performed in Rome and New York. Masi's work includes a site-specific installation on the events around 9/11 entitled The Witness Project which was on exhibit at the Fitchburg Museum of Art and Regis College's Carney Gallery. Masi received her BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University and her MFA from the Academy of Art College, San Francisco. In 2007 she received her Ed.M. from Harvard University's Arts in Education program. She is currently attending Boston University's Ed.D. in Policy, Leadership and Education program. Masi's current research interest is the intersection between the role of the artist, aesthetics, and ethics. A short paper presenting this topic is attached.

The technology and search engine was developed by C.J. Holmes, original Webmaster at Sonoma State University.
