"The Irony of Rosie" performance, part of Peekskill Project 6 was very enthusiastically received by an audience of more than 50 people yesterday. Here is an image from the performance and an image of me presenting Josephine Vavrek (aka Josie-the-Riveter") with a model of an Avenger Torpedo Bomber. Josie worked on the wings of the bomber at Eastern Aircraft Division in North Tarrytown during WW2. I was so delighted to have Josie attend the performance. When I introduced her, I was told there wasn't a dry eye in the house! Bravo, Josie! I am honored to know you!

Galesburg Civic Art Center

Former Studios Midwest Resident Artist Carla Rae Johnson to give Clare Smith Memorial Lecture Former Studios Midwest Resident Artist (summer of 1995) Carla Rae Johnson has been chosen to give the Clare Smith Memorial Lecture on Tuesday, August 11, at 7pm at the Galesburg Civic Art Center. “Studios Midwest – The Sequel” is free and the public is encouraged to attend. Carla Rae Johnson will share the many ways the two-month residency had a significant influence on her work in the subsequent 20 years, continuing into the present. Johnson will share her understanding of the creative process, as well as how and why artist residencies are important for both artists and their audiences. Carla Rae Johnson conceived and organized The "Alternet," a collaborative card-catalog project which has been on exhibit in the BLICK Gallery since early June. Q & A will follow. “Studios Midwest has been part of our community for over 30 years, and the effect this program has on artists and likewise our community is profound.” says Tuesday Çetin, Executive Director, “I am equally excited that Carla Rae is honoring Clare Smith’s memory and many contributions to the Studios Midwest program and Art Center by articulating how artist residencies affect artists’ creative process and why they are important.” The Galesburg Civic Art Center is open Tuesday through Friday, 10:30am–4:30pm and Saturday, 10:30am– 3:00pm. For more information about exhibitions, workshops, and events, please contact the Art Center at 114 E. Main St., Galesburg, IL 61401, (309) 342-7415 or visit www.galesburgarts.org.

Hoping that the traditional "salonistas" of Peekskill's Artist District will attend. Also, would love to have former and current WCC drawing students attend. Would be so great to have your input for this program!
