MY LIFE SO FAR

I first published this on my birthday in 2009, but I still think it tells my story so let’s go again!! Today is my birthday and I’ve attained a certain age.  I have plans, things to do, places to go.  But today I’m looking back. (I tried to cut my own bangs–oops.) For a few […]

Lost Weekend

Wow. Plunged by weather into the 19th century, this past weekend has given each of us plenty to think about…the Friday night freeze and the wrenching sound of trees cracking and ice tinkling, the explosions and blue flashes as power transformers blew up around the neighborhoods.

If you are around the area this week the exhibit will be open until the last day…Saturday October 17th. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 12:00 to 5:00 pm. and […]

Clifford Gleason and Bonnie Hull at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art

We are still hopeful that these two exhibits will see the light of day opening August 20th with no events or fanfare.  “We” includes the curator of both exhibits Roger Hull, and me.  Roger Hull has been working on the Clifford Gleason exhibit “Clifford Gleason: The Promise of Paint” (monograph of the same title due […]
