During her educational tenure, she also served at the Robert J. Kaiser Middle School as an art advisor and an editor of the literary and art magazine. From 1983 to 2009, she worked as an antique and art dealer at Brockmann’s Antique Center in Milford, NY. Since departing from Brockmann’s, Mrs. Kavleski has dedicated her attention and resources to the Albatross Antiques and Art in South Fallsburg, New York.
Mrs. Kavleski pursued a formal education at Orange County Community College, otherwise known as SUNY Orange, earning an Associate of Arts in 1963 and an Associate of Applied Science in 1964. Later that same year, she completed coursework at the John Herron School of Art and Design at Indiana University. Mrs. Kavleski concluded her studies at the State University of New York at New Paltz, where she obtained a Bachelor of Science in 1967 and conducted graduate coursework in fine arts between 1965 and 1972.
Featured prominently throughout several art institutions across the nation, Mrs. Kavleski has participated in both group and solo exhibitions at the Amos Eno Gallery in New York, the Sylvia Wald and Po Kim Art Gallery, the Catskill Art Society, the Albany Center Gallery, the Plotkin Gallery and the Sullivan County Historical Society, among several other lauded venues. In addition, her work was exhibited at the Three Rivers Art Festival in Pittsburgh, as well as at the Haggin Museum in Stockton, CA, and the Shimizu American Corporation in Durham, NC. As a testament to her artistic prowess, Mrs. Kavleski has further been commissioned to create private works by Dr. Goddard Lainjo in Middletown, New York, and by Dr. Gustav Gavis in Monticello, New York.
In 1988, Mrs. Kavleski was featured in Les Krantz’s “The New York Art Review.” Most recently, she was presented with the Eve Helman Memorial Award for Works on Paper at the National Association of Women Artists Awards in 2018, and the Elizabeth Horman Memorial Award for Digital Art from the 125th Annual Exhibition of the National Association of Women Artists in 2014.
