In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

WHEEL FOR LILITH goes to Gadsden Cultural Arts

Here are pics from last week when Director Bobby Welch of Gadsden Cultural Arts picked up my donated sculpture for the trip to Gadsden. The sculpture is in honor of the Bird-Woman Goddess Lilith, who was maligned when the goddess religions were crushed. I want to give Lilith her due, as she represents all strong women. The birds are soul symbols on the wheel of life. It can be interpreted in many ways, but these were my thoughts when creating it. WFL has original cast iron and cast bronze parts, which I cast at Sloss Furnace in B'ham. During the period when I was making found-object sculpture and frequenting junk yards, I was having the most fun of my art career. Currently I am painting on shaped, 3D canvases.
