Dear Forum friends,

If you were among the present Monday night, I am sure you will join me in thanking Carol and Bob for opening their beautiful home, studio and gallery so graciously. Thank you also for sharing your art with us and the paths you have taken that led you here to Santa Fe and to our group. It is inspiring to see the commitment you have made to your art. and the contribution you have made to our group. It was a perfect setting for honoring our 10 years of being "scouts for science and art'.

We ate, talked and networked a lot , toured the gallery and Carol's studio and finally ended up in Bob digital image labratory where we saw the slide show he had created from the images that had been sent in. Thank you Ursula, Cynthia, Richard, Jean and Bob for your contributions! We must do more of this. I found the images powerful and evocative and artistically inspiring. This is just the beginning! We finally make it out the door around 10 PM! It was an evening to remember!

A bit of good news! I returned home to find a message from Sandy Thompson from CCA stating that they would be delighted to have us return in January for our meeting. He also said that they were beginning for create a grant proposal to have a series of events centering on Science and Art.! I said that we were poised to offer any assistance. Good feelings all around. That's all for now, my friends. May your hearts be filled with light and love this sacred season.

Dear Forum friends,

The gallery at CCA was a perfect place to hold our November meeting. After meeting and mingling with our members, Sandy Thompson, the development director gave a summary of the amazing plans that are underway at CCA. It will be quite an 
expansion and transformation. If you were so inclined it would be an interesting place to do some volunteer work. He was very cordial and 
seemed pleased to be hosting our group.
We had three members bring current work. Ursula's images beneath the sea were stunning. She is really mastering her craft! Paul Biagie brought a book of small ethereal, abstract paintings each accompanied by one of his poems.  His work demonstrates such a clear inspiration from science. I brought my latest spiralic sculpture, an enlargement of the one that was in our show. There was an exchange of news, events and artist support groups as well. Judy is going to be in an art show in Mexico!!
I am pleased to announce that we have our three members for the exhibition team, Carol Sky, Diana Sheffield, and Jean Constant.  Please contact Jean if you are having any difficulty sending off your information for the web site. It is very important to have our membership well represented there. Cynthia Pannucci is going to be sending a very significant email to everyone listing web sites that contain beautiful images from a wide range of scientific research.  Plenty of inspiration awaiting you!!
Finally, Richard Lowenberg was given the stage for his presentation, a visual trip through the years illustrating the creative applications of his personal brand of community collaboration with science and art. You had to be there to appreciate the scope of his thinking. Thank you, Richard and welcome to our group!!
Our next meeting will be on Monday, December 11th at Carol and Bob's studio. More soon from Sue. Be well, be curious, and be inspired!!

At our 05/08 meeting we had a good turnout of about 20 people at the studio for a presentation on the photography of Michael Philip Manheim.The presentation focused on his work using multiple exposure images to capture dancers in studio and natural settings. The very interesting presentation was well received and generated many questions. Thanks again, Michael. Also, Bruce McIntosh presented his images for the opening of our St. John's show. The well executed and clever presentation as web pages is an excellent record of our show and a good marketing tool for FSA. Members received CD's of the show images. There are still some copies available for members who were in the show. Please contact me to obtain one. Bruce, we greatly appreciate you efforts and valuable results! Remember, retrieve your works from the show on May 22 at the St. John's gallery.

The Star Axis field trip, postponed by rains, is now rescheduled for Saturday, June 10th. Here are the details. We will journey to the Star Axis earthworks near Las Vegas.
