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
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
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
Our next meeting will be on Monday, December
11th at Carol and Bob's studio. More
soon from Sue. Be well, be curious, and
it was a "dark
and stormy night",
thirteen members found
their way to Vaness's beautiful
adobe home for our October
meeting. We were all very
impressed with out turnout
to welcome Cynthia Pannucc
to our group and to Santa
Fe, her new home. Thank
you, Vanessa for opening
your lovely home to us!
Your apple pie was an experience
not to be forgotten!! Thanks
to both Bob Everett and
Cynthia for their contributions
to our "show and tell" time.
We managed to get through
a brief business meeting
before the evening's presentation.
Topics and tasks and a
date for a planning meeting are
being sent promptly
via another email.

of additional structure
our group would benefit

It is time to reevaluate
how we can best serve each
other and the community
3. Gathering ideas for
programs and activities
for the coming year. We
have a 10th birthday party

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
