Fine Art students at Slippery Rock University of PA  created a student run  art gallery on campus  this year. . When I learned about this adventure, I wanted to support it  with a gift to help support future  exhibitions.

Today, I learned about a special gift donation  of

Hand crafted pottery by Anthony DeRosa.

He also wanted to help art students raise funds.   He gifted some of his stunning pottery to the organization to be used to help this become a reality in some way.  I received one of the mugs made by Anthony in the mail today.  I am enjoying my morning coffee which is in one of Anthony’s beautiful mugs. What an amazing piece of art it is – and it will be treasured by me for many years to come.

I hope other graduates of the SRU Art programs will join in  to support the new art gallery and help  art students in a variety of ways in the future.  Congratulations to SGA and the creation of a Student Gallery at Slippery Rock University of PA.  I know that the sky is the limit for these current art students. And, this new gallery provides training that would not be possible without it.

 

I remember the excitement of being involved in art classes & exhibitions as a former BFA major at SRU.  The completion of my degree opened door for me that were remarkable.  My academic and professional life provided exhibition and teaching experiences across  the US and in a number of other countries over the ensuing years.

This new student-run gallery is a ground-breaking idea and I was glad to know about the project. I personally know the value of student learning and  how to do the business of making art and getting work out before the public through exhibitions. This new gallery is a key factor in the future success of the students.

If you would like to be a donor, no matter the amount, I know the students would be so grateful for your help.  You can get more information on the websites I have given above.

Be My Guest: Francine Kohn

My Special Guest Blogger

for MAY  ~ 2016

 Francine Kohn

California  Artist

 

For each guest blogger, I ask just one question.  “What is on your mind?”

My guests are free to write about whatever they want to say in response to my invitation. Thank you, Francine, for your Guest Blog!

I was raised in Long Beach, California where I have been inspired by a love of bright
colors, dynamic movements of water, and vibrant energy.

In my art, I envision life as colored energy patterns and I use the convergence of matter and spirit to create  form.  I like to  show others how they too can affect real changes in their lives by using their own personal tools and resources.

My artwork  invites you to join me in
connecting with your inner spark and making real changes in your life.
I worked with 3-year old children  and teens who are considered to be at-risk, as well as retired individuals.

This wide variety of experiences laid the groundwork for overcoming a life-threatening event in my personal  life.  I had a form of paralysis from the ribs down.  My  right hand turned into a claw and I experiences significant sight loss in my  right eye; it was  legally blind.

I will share my experiences  when I am a guest blogger in May.

I will relate the personal tools and perception I used and you can use them also to work with the medical professionals for the highest outcome. Discover how I  transformed a death sentence to create a life and relationships prior to event s that challenged me  to enter a life of joy  most of the time!

Below you will find a quote from a testimonial by  Joni Yacoe, MFT, concerning  Francine working with at-risk teens.

_____

 

Of all the work I have done with troubled teenagers, I feel Ms.
Kohn’s project brought out more self-esteem and pride than I have seen
with other modalities.  It was challenging and difficult enough that
they were impressed with their completed work…They were able to
express feelings and how they saw themselves in a form that allowed
them to drop a lot of their defenses.  They were delighted and
somewhat embarrassed by their accomplishment as it took them out of
their comfort zone and allowed them to experience themselves as
creative young people, instead of “problem teenagers.
