In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

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.

"One Wire," Piece Selected for Chicago Exhibition


"One Wire," 12" x 12" x 2, Canvas on Board painted with Rabbit Skin Glue, Wire, and Tacks.  (Click on image to enlarge.)

My work was selected for "Bare Essentials:  Minimalism in the 21st Century," a Nov.4-Dec.22 international juried exhibition at Woman Made Gallery, Chicago, IL.  Though it has minimal qualities of austere masculine industrial materials, it also shows expression through the memory of former movements of the wire.  I expect to see this expressive quality on many works in this upcoming show.
