Sleep well, B.B. King

I was lucky enough to see B.B. King in Morristown, NJ in the early 2000s, sometime before 2004. Yes, it was a great show, and he was a great performer and guitarist, but what impressed me the most at the time was that whatever he’d been all his life (I just don’t know), he’d become a gentleman in all of the best senses of the word. He seemed to me like someone to emulate. We lost a truly great person today. Sleep well, B.B. King.

Online Gallery Open: Blake in the Heartland

The online gallery for the Blake in the Heartland exhibit is now available. The online gallery page links to images of all works shown in the exhibit organized by artist and by Blake’s original title, images of the opening reception, and images of one of Michael Phillips’s printmaking demonstrations that illustrate his methods, materials, and results. Pages organized by Blake’s original title will have an image of Blake’s original, Michael Phillips’s reproduction of it, and either one of Emily Brandehoff’s or Robert McFate’s contemporary responses to Blake’s work.
