Joy Kalfopulos Wagner

Joy is a first generation Greek-American. This portrait of the village of Chora from the island of Naxos, in the Aegean, was painted by her uncle. This is her mother’s village, and this is the view that people have when arriving from Athens. Joy has taken in this view on visits to Naxos, and has placed this painting above the desk in her office, so it is the first thing she sees at work each morning, and the last thing she sees when she leaves for home each evening.
