My husband, Richard, and I came to Ann Arbor in 1948. We discovered the Art Association soon after and it became really important to us. One of the great events of the year was the annual exhibition in the galleries at Rackham. It was very competitive, and a delight if you got in the show. If you won an award….well, that was really something! It was a way to meet other local artists, and always gave you an opportunity to show your work. It’s now 60 years later, and I just entered two paper sculptures in this year’s competition!
