North American Car Show-2012

Artistically Painted Smart Car
An annual tradition in our family has been to atttend the North American Car Show held at Cobo Hall in Detroit every January.  My husband, who has engineering in his background, and son are enthusiastic car buffs. This year our son started working for Ford! We enjoyed comparing all the new cars with him. However, my favorite part of the car show is our excursion to Greektown for lunch!

The most artistic element in the show is pictured above:  a Smart Car that was painted by Billy the Artist.

Beautiful Protoype


February 11th - AAWA 60th Anniversary Gala

Art by Barbara Goodsitt
Ann Arbor Women Artists (and a few good men) is the largest arts organization in Washtenaw County.  I have enjoyed being an active member for several years. This group has been a great resource for artists in our community. We have several local venues where members can exhibit & sell their artwork. AAWA also offers a series of free lectures in our educational speakers program, as well as many art workshops led by nationally known artists.  AAWA was started 60 years ago, and this year we are celebrating our anniversary with a Gala Event: a Venetian Masked Ball. This event is open to the public. We will be honoring several important local arts professionals and there will be live music, food and a cash bar!  It is reasonably priced at $10 per ticket, so please join us at Washtenaw Community College on February 11th for a great evening.
