Big Time Thank You to Myoko Whiteside

We at the ABG would like to show special appreciation to Myoko Whiteside, Bill's wife, for all her much appreciated efforts in beautifying the reception, cooking great food, and doing our food presentation once again. She also was a dynamo with Catherine Cajandig in clearing and cleaning up. Many, many thanks!

Meanwhile, here's some pics of several artists and guests.

Mimi Peterson at Emily Oaks Nature Center, Skokie

Mimi Peterson's "Waste and Want" is now installed at Emily Oaks Nature Center and can be viewed during the Center's visiting hours.  The outdoor work is located to the right of the building entrance.   I attach images and artist statement dated August, 2012.  As time passes, the material and form of the sculptures will be altered, as will the site's native plants bloom and die.  These natural changes are an important conceptual component of the project and will be documented periodically. 

Please visit the Center, enjoy the artwork, breath some fresh air.
