Actual Journal Beginning

I am just updating my journal, deleting the older, previous one.

Life has been hectic, but a good hectic.
~~~~~~
I keep 1-2 journals on deviantART, maximum, at any given time, usually, just one...and have done so for over two years.

Stop jumping to conclusions, as your assumptions get you nowhere.

Quotations by Eleanor Roosevelt:
Reflection...is good for the soul...it helps one to sort out priorities...and focus on the most important and primary aspects of their life.  

A woman is like a tea bag- you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.
    
Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.
   
Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.
    
Friendship with oneself is all-important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.
~~~~~~
We need to keep all victims of natural disasters in our thoughts, no matter where they are located.
~~~~~~
Please take a moment to give your thoughts to those hurting/in need...to those we might never meet…to people worldwide…wherever the country they reside in…whatever their culture…to those who have died…whether through war or famine…natural disaster, or natural death.  Reach out to someone, peacefully, in your own way.

Remember, as mature adults, we can agree to disagree.
~~~~~~
We must stay true to our own ideals, and not the ideals of others; we must look inside ourselves, and find our sense of Self; and be strong, continue to read, be informed, and not follow what others want us to do.

To celebrate the birthday of Michelangelo's David, the people of Florence, Italy, kicked off a celebration of events that will last for one year.  The events celebrating David's 500th birthday will be celebrated with artistic flair.  From fireworks to exhibits, from seminars to concerts, the year will host a multitude of events for both citizens of Florence, and tourists alike to view and to participate in.  

According to Antonio Paolucci, superintendent of city museums, "We want David's 500th birthday to spark debate, to be controversial, to challenge people about what art is today, not just what it was 500 years ago".

For all of the deviant community who live nearby or in Florence, and for those planning a trip, enjoy the festivities over the next year!  And, while you are there, as a souvenir, buy the official David 500 T-shirt!
The Beauty of Life: William Morris and the Art of Design, featuring 250 pieces of Morris' art, is an exhibit currently on display at The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens, San Marino, CA, through April 4, 2004.

Morris was a 19th Century artist who was born in England.  His artistic achievements are known world-wide, spanning a wide variety of art forms, that include interior design and creating wallpaper patterns, book printing, poetry, weaving tapestries and textiles, calligraphy, embroidery, and stained-glass design and production.  He was especially interested with the Medieval period, and much of his art reflects that.

Morris' influence can still be seen today, as his creative designs are still being used and reproduced, throughout the world in home interior design, industrial design, and in architectural forms.

KERMAN, Iran Friday, December 26, 08:46 PM ET-By Parisa Hafezi
BAM, Iran (Reuters)

"Entire blocks of buildings lay crushed and survivors lined up blanket-wrapped bodies in the street after a devastating 6.5 earthquake leveled nearly three-quarters of the Iranian city of Bam on Friday."

According to local authorities (latest report), they fear the death toll could reach up to 20,000 people, or more, and say that it has already claimed almost 12,000 lives, and injured over 30,000 people.  The figures are expected to grow, due to the fact that many people are buried under the rubble.

Rescue operations continue to be slow going, due to darkness.  ''The disaster is far too huge for us to meet all of our needs,'' President Mohammad Khatami said. ''However, all the institutions have been mobilized.''

U.S. President Bush, along with leaders of other nations, offered to send whatever help Iran might need during this devastating time.
   
A famous 2,000 year-old and historical fortress that was overlooking the city, has suffered major damage, many towers and walls crumbled, some still remain, but are barely standing.

My thoughts/prayers go out to the members of DeviantArt who have been personally affected by this tragedy.  Let's all show our caring and support to them, and to all the victims and their families of this terrible tragedy.

"The Photograph And The American Dream, 1840-1940", is a current photography exhibit at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles, CA, that continues through January 4, 2004.  

The exhibit includes a varied blend of photographs, spanning one hundred years, imagery from across the entire United States, including images of the Depression, labor conditions, social rebellion, the human condition, and the settling of the west.

It is an impressive display of images, in which the photographers (some well- known, some not-so-well-known) skillfully show their bold perspectives and expressive statements within their unique images.

I had the good fortune to see this exhibit today...it is a must see!!

Telephone number:  310-440-4500.

The J. Paul Getty Center, Beverly Hills, CA, is currently hosting four new and separate exhibitions, that include photography, sculpture, paintings and stained glass.  These exhibits are now on display in different pavilions of the Getty Center.  

One exhibition contains photographs by 19th-century, British photographer, Julia Margaret Cameron.  

Beginning at the age of 48, she began her photography career, which lasted ten years, and crossed gender borders, as she strived to bring both truth and poetic metaphors to the world, through her photography.  The photographs are on display through January 11, 2004.

Here is a link for more information.

Also being featured is an Exhibition of Jean-Antoine Houdon's sculptures, "Sculptor Of The Enlightenment".  This is a showing of his bust sculptures, which capture the essence of the revolutionary Enlightment Period.   The sculptures are on display through January  25, 2004.

Here is a link for more information.

Here is another exhibition you might want to see while you are there, it is entitled "Casting Characters:  Portraits and Studies of Heads", an exhibit of preparation works to be used for larger paintings, and other types of art.  The exhibit ends Feb. 1, 2004.

For more information, check this link.

You might also want to check out the exhibition of some of the Getty's own recently acquired stained glass pieces, "Images In Light:  Newly Acquired Stained Glass".  This exhibit ends April 4, 2004.

Southern California has become a blazing inferno, looking like an apocalypse, with several simultaneous fires burning out of control.  The monetary damage is estimated to be over 2 Billion U.S. dollars, and growing by the hour.

So far, 522,000 acres have burned (the news said that would be comparable to 815 square miles), 1552 homes have been burned down to the ground, 30,000 more homes are possibly threatened, and 15 people have died, along with pets/animals, and all this devastation has been attributed to arson, the fires intentionally set by human hands.  

The flames keep changing direction, due to the high winds, making it almost impossible to keep the fires under control.  Fire fighters fear that some of the fires will eventually end up merging into one massive fire.

I watch the news with such sadness. ):
  
A tiger mauled illusionist, Roy Horn (partner of Siegfried Fischbacher), onstage Friday night, at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, during a 7:30 p.m. performance of the world reknowned illusionists, "Siegfried and Roy".

The attack took place in front of concert-goers, as the tiger lunged for the left side of Horn's throat, and then dragged him offstage in a "rag doll-like fashion".  Horn's condition is listed as critical, at University Medical Center.

It was the first public appearance for the tiger in the show, and Horn was on the stage alone with the tiger at the time of the attack.

"Siegfried and Roy have been performing together for over thirty years", according to their spokesman.
Girl Culture: Photographs by Lauren Greenfield is a photographic exhibit that is currently showing at the Skirball Cultural Center through January 4, 2004.

The emotional and societal lives of girls and women (body image, etc.) is portrayed through over forty photographs.  The images contain girls from five-years old, and also adult women, strategizing and coping with today's societal demands on body image, beauty, weight, etc.

This is a must-see exhibit for both men and women, alike, an introspective on women seen through the eyes of the Greenfield and her subjects, the women in the images.

Visit the Skirball's link. www.skirball.org

While you are there, get information on the Skirball's upcoming exhibit entitled The Photograph And The America Dream, 1840-1940...set to open October 18, 2003.
Cave art, dating back to 12,000 years has been discovered at Creswell Crags in Nottinghamshire, central England.  The cave art is the first ever, Ice Age cave art that has been identified as such, in England.

The cave art consists of drawings of a bison, a portion of a horse, two different ibex (wild goat), several birds, and various geometric patterns.  These drawings have been discovered over the past three months, officials from the British Heritage stated on Thursday.  They are much like the same style as the cave art found in Lascaux, France and the cave art found in Altamira, Spain.
Begining June 28, 2003, the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens is presenting an extensive exhibition of 150 photographs, taken by the world-renowned, landscape/still-life, American photographer Edward Weston.

The majority of the photographs were taken from 1937-1938, when he traveled throughout the American West.  His dramatic landscapes and still-lifes are filled with emotion, expressiveness and stark intensity.  

Please don't miss this exciting exhibition, if you are in the area.  It runs through October 5, 2003.

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is proud to present an exhibition of the paintings, sculptures and drawings by the Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920).  The exhibit "Modigliani & the Artists of Montparnasse" is the first time in over forty years that a large collection of his work has been shown in the United States.  

He is well known for his avante-garde style, his portraits of women with almond-shaped eyes, his paintings of sensuous, reclining nudes, and his sculpture.

Along with Modigliani, the exhibit also includes work from some of his peers: Chagall, Matisse, Picasso, Rivera and other artists who established themselves in the northern Parisian neighborhood of Montparnasse during the beginning of the Twentieth Centry.

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) will commemorate the centennial of the birth (1902-1984) of world-recognized and master photographer Ansel Adams with an exhibition (February 2-May 11, 2003) of 100 of his magnificent photographs.  This is the long-awaited traveling exhibition, which will finally come to Los Angeles!

Adams was a native Californian, born in San Fransisco, and spent most of his life living there.  He often spent his hours in Yosemite National Park, taking photographs with a simple Brownie box camera.  His Yosemite Valley photographs are world-recognized, and have changed the face of the way we view nature, and nature photography, itself.  

He devoted his life to improving and saving the environment, and his photographs are a slice of this life-long dedication.  His photography gave the world insight into not only the environment, but also into the natural order of the life cycle, from the smallest blade of grass, to the majestic mountains, he photographed it all, bringing intensity and dignity to every life form and non-living forms of nature.

The exhibition will travel to New York after this.  Don't let this rare, and possibly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity pass you by.  You can call LACMA for more information at 323-857-6000, or visit their website to find out more information on this exhibit.   
Save those damaged and faded photographs with Applied Sciences' ROC (Restoration of Color) software.  It can be used with both Windows and Mac computers.  It is available as a plug-in for both Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, where it can be used on faded and damaged images scanned on flatbed scanners.

ROC will automatically read your image, and replace the faded colors with the original tones and contrasts of light. If you wish, you can further enhance the photo from there, but the original foundation will be restored.

The software costs $49.95 (not really high, considering the bundled scanners included). Check out and download their free test copy and/or purchase the software there at ASF.com

While you are visiting, check out their other software "Digital SHO", another Photoshop compatible plug-in.

"This software reveals details hidden in shadows, optimizes contrast and exposure, and works with images from any digital source, including flatbed scanners, film scanners, digital cameras, online photofinishers, image CDs and the internet." Digital SHO also costs $49.95.
The Los Angeles area 2002 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure will be held Sunday, November 3rd, 2002, at the Pasadena Rose Bowl.  Join in the activities: a 5K run/walk, a one mile fun run, a health and fitness expo, exhibit booths from participating sponsors, food, refreshments and a have lot of fun, while participating in a worthy cause! If you cannot physically participate, you can check out their Pasadena link to register to become a "virtual" runner.

I have participated in three "Race For The Cure" events, because I thought it was an important cause. Now, though, breast cancer has affected my own family, as my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer on 9/24/01, and had a radical mastectomy on 10/1/01. She is now a breast cancer survivor, and this year, unfortunately, my participation will be filled with more emotion and meaning.

Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among women ages 40-59, second to lung cancer related deaths. "In 2002 Nationally, it is estimated that there will be 203,500 new cases of invasive breast cancer in women, and 1,500 in men.  This will result in 40,000 deaths due to breast cancer. Proceeds from the Komen Race for the Cure® Series help fund important breast cancer research as well as breast health initiatives on a local level. Seventy-five percent of the proceeds remain in the local community where the Race is held, helping to support breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs for the medically underserved.

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation began in 1982 by Nancy Brinker to honor the memory of her sister, Susan G. Komen, who died of breast cancer at the age of 36." Check out the national link and become educated on this terrible disease.
If you reside near the cities listed, these photography
exhibits are a must see for you!  Worldwide, there is an
abundance of photographic talent being displayed in upcoming photography events.  I have updated my monthly national & international photography exhibit information.

If your city is not listed, please feel free to research
photography events on your own (with the name of the exhibit, gallery/museum and address), and note them to me, for next month's update (by the 15th of November), and I will be glad to include the information. The current listing has been researched solely by me, and not all cities worldwide are listed, for obvious reasons.

If you reside near the cities listed, these photography exhibits are a must see for you! Worldwide, there is an abundance of photographic talent being displayed in upcoming photography events. I have updated my monthly national & international photography exhibit information, and combined them into one listing.

If your city is not listed, please feel free to research photography events on your own (with the name of the exhibit, gallery/museum and address), and note them to me, for next month's update (by the 15th of October), and I will be glad to include the information. The current listing has been researched solely by me, and not all cities worldwide are listed, for obvious reasons.
