Please join us on one of ALC’s big events of the year: a bus trip to Philadelphia on May 7. You will have the opportunity to view the permanent collections and the special exhibits of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Rodin Museum. Philadelphia, being a historically significant city, offers much more besides its museums. If you feel like spending the time outdoors painting, take your plein air set along and sketch the historic sights! Please read the details on the enclosed poster.

Joanne Petuchovas studied Fine Arts Education, but began her career in commercial art when everything was still done by hand (pre-computers). She eventually switched careers to Special Education. In all aspects of her personal and working life, she utilized her creativity and artistic skills to enhance her lessons and student experiences.

Now retired, she has been able to concentrate on her love for photography and creating with paper. Iris paper folding, tea bag folding, and collage are some of the techniques used on her unique note cards. Use of color, pattern, texture, embellishments, vintage ephemera and other “found” materials enhance her designs. Her photography began with a focus on flowers, but has grown to include a variety of subjects.
