Today I swung by to see my art friends Marcia Vander Schaaf and Stephanie Cissna who are participating in the SE Art Walk. It was great fun to visit with them before heading off to the Janovec Gallery. Sadly, I learned yesterday that Madeline Janovec passed away. The March show at her Gallery was meant to be a benefit to help with her medical expenses. Proceeds from purchases will now also go toward a book about Maddie's art and life. I did my part (with pleasure) by purchasing a wonderful black stone necklace (crafted by Madeline herself). I will very much treasure it! Even though Madeline was ill, her passing was somewhat unexpected....and despite this, her friends made the gallery feel very happy today instead of sad. You can see photos of my day in the slide show below.
