Jean Arp, also known as Hans Arp, was a German-French painter, sculptor, and poet. Poor old Thom: The “Painter of Light” Thomas Kinkade, died of an overdose of alcohol and a valium. He was – alas – an alcoholic, burdened by a separation from his wife, financial troubles and the low opinion of his work by critics. And yet he must have signed away his rights as his paintings appear on t-shirts, plates, mugs and what not. Prints sell for nearly $1000 each on the home shopping network. So someone’s making money. Kinkade must have lived high as he was reported to have earned $53 million for his artistic work in the period 1997 to May 2005. Rorimer, Anne. Seventy-Second American Exhibition. Exh. cat.

The purpose of the present study was to examine Michigan general music teachers’ perceptions and attitudes about (a) their academic preparation for working with special learners and (b) the inclusion of special needs students in their classrooms. One hundred and five general music educators belonging to the Michigan Music Educators Association were invited to participate in this study. Ten educators responded and completed the online 27 item questionnaire. The results of this study are presented with discussion related to previous and future research as well as implications for both music educators and music therapists working in school settings. I too stumbled across Bekaert’s work while on my lunch hour at the Vorpal in San Francisco. I was working practically next door at the Public Health building. The misty, detailed, complicated yet subtle garden subjects and the expert blending of greens overwhelmed me. I purchased two 13″ prints and hung them in my office. I also have the catelogue which I treasure. Just cleaning out the closet in my own art studio this morning, I rediscovered my two prints and am going to get them framed. The Vorpal closure was such a loss to all. It had a fabulous variety of artists. I bought a postcard print of a Hamaguchi cherry which I also love to look at, thinking of all those layers of color and patience represented. My prints are of a folding wooden lawn chair (Du Milieu des Fluers) and a statue among a garden of potted plants (Sculpure dans le Jardin) published in 1999 by New York Graphic Society. In the late 19th century, two phenomena emerged from this confusion. Many of the era’s leading thinkers embraced the new science while rejecting a purely materialist vision of human existence. At the same time, artists moved beyond conventional representational strategies toward a radical new approach to art. In 1986, a now legendary exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art proposed a link between these two developments. The Spiritual in Art: Abstract Painting 1890-1985 â€ challenged prevailing formalist histories of modernism by tracing the origins of Western abstraction to a confluence of ideas about spirituality current at the turn of the last century.
