Photographer Gloria Feinstein is in Uganda this week, again at the St. Mary Kevin Orphanage, documentingÂ the lives ofÂ the kids there, but also making a difference.Â How?Â The details of that will be revealed over the coming months, but it will involve fund-raising for the orphanage.Â With her on the trip is the painter Lonnie Powell, and several others.
Please check the blog when you can.Â The dignity this woman brings to everything she touches is astonishing.
Amy Koffman recently joined the gallery, somehow by way of Wyoming.Â Very glad she did.Â Though the clumsiness of this photoÂ communicates little of her work’s symmetry and grace, I suspect you can assume what I failed to capture.
Saw Poco last Friday night in Lawrence with Brown Eyes.Â Liberty Hall.Â Drinks with friends beforehand at the Eldridge, then crossed the street to one hell of a fine show.Â Joint was full of old hippies, young hipsters, and a phalanx of people somewhere in between.Â Sold out.Â
So fine to hear that sound again, this band that influenced so many others: Eagles, Jackson Browne, Pure Prairie League…Â Richie Furay even came out and played with them after finishing his set: mandolins, steel guitars, and that incredible harmonizing.Â I loved the vibe of it all.Â Felt like the concerts of old.
Had a client recently inquire about Carol Fleming, who does these amazing columns in stoneware, along withÂ other shapes.Â Installed three of her columns at Block last spring, and man have they generated interest.Â Am discussing representation with Carol now.Â More on that later.
