Ann Thiermann on Artist on Art 10/13/09

Picture 4The show for Oct. 13 was an interesting and exciting night due to an incredible tropical storm that dumped tremendous amounts of rain.  Also, the Emergency Broadcast System’s interrupted the show at the very beginning.  Frankly, I didn’t know what to do.  We were having flash floods here in Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties.

We talked about Ann’s upcoming show ” Visual Conversations with Women in the Arts” that happened October 18- December 4, 2009 with the opening reception Sunday, October 25, 2-4pm at the Eloise Pickard Smith Gallery at Cowell College.
