The show is named the Flats Festival of the Arts  and the dates are Aug 19-21, 2016. The show will have well know director Scott Huntley (Columbus Fine Arts Festival) and will be backed by a National real estate developer and a…


Ode to Barry Cohen

Because we are nearing the year anniversary of the death of Barry Cohen, and Under The Oaks was his last show-I was honored to write and deliver a speech in his honor at the Friday banquet awards dinner. I wanted to share it with each and every one of you...

We have lost one of our own and the world has lost a gifted artist...and more importantly, a wonderful guy, Barry Cohen. he created unique acrylic sculptures that resembled aquariums, and he was just as unique as they were..Just… Continue

Hi Guys~

I just hung up the phone with Ellen,Nels' wife- The first day after surgery was a good day! Usually the first day is  a difficult day  a struggle, not for Nels...he is not up and walking yet, of course- but doing his breathing exercises and they knock him the hell out- to be expected!! Tomorrow they are hoping that he will leave intensive care to another floor....small steps, Nels, tiny steps. We all know this is not in his vocabulary, but when they tell him he may walk for…

Hi all ~

I just got off the phone with Ellen Marshall, the wife of Nels Johnson. Nels had open heart surgery today- more work had to be done than expected...a QUADRUPLE bypass, instead of a single- a mitro  valve replacement, instead of a repair, and an additional repair on another valve. Of course, this means more recuperation time for our trooper, Nels. And this means more down time for Ellen, as well. He has clearly been given another chance at a healthy future with this surgery-…

Hi, Patti!  Geri Wegner suggested I leave you a note... I'm looking for a little advice and insight and hoping I can pick your brain!  What do you know of the Deerfield Festival of Arts in Deerfield, and the Naperville Women's Guild's Art Show?  Both of these are on the weekend of June 4-5... Have you done either of these or heard good/bad info on them?  Coming from Central Illinois, I know both areas are good areas, but I'm having a hard time finding any reviews on either show.  Any thoughts or comments would be most appreciated!  Many thanks in advance, then, for your time and efforts!
