I was privileged to hear a wonderful lecture by Interior Designer
Michael Simon last week at the General Society of Mechanics and
Tradesmen's marvelous artisan's series. Michael Simon, "composer turned
designer," stressed composition in interiors, music and design. Mr.

Tuesday, April 3, was an Art Rush! At 1PM Brooklyn College's Gallery 3160 hosted my Wall Street photographs with a wonderful opening. The black and white and sepia photographs of Wall Street will be at the Gallery through April. Curator Madeline Appell, herself a fabric artist and quilter whose art is currently on display at the Brooklyn Central Library, hung the show beautifully. I majored in photography as part of my BA at Brooklyn College so this was a real homecoming for me!
