Community Outreach for Artists

Hospital Collaboration IUHealth/Methodist hospitals have invited various arts organizations to participate in a community outreach effort to benefit their long-term patients. They’re creating ways to connect through the visual arts, as well as dance, music, theater, etc. The involvement by WSI was initiated by Teresa Altemeyer.  Cards, artwork by our members, with positive messages inside, to be distributed to the patients.  They can be any

In My Opinion… Pat Grabill… March 15, 2021

    Those of you who know me pretty well already know that I am an English major--two degrees in English I love it so much.  I'm clearly not an art major, which is one reason why I respect to a great degree the knowledge and beautiful artistry of those of you who have studied art your entire lives. I have to say, though, that

T.S.Eliot, in his poem, "The Wasteland," says that April is the cruelest month.  I say, NO WAY, T.S.  February is the cruelest month, and February, 2021, proves it in terms of the weather.  The good thing about February, though, is that it's also the shortest month.  Soon it will be onto March and some early spring days, and we may even be warm again.  Someday.

In My Opinion…. Pat Grabill…. November 20, 2020

     Thanksgiving is next week, and it's time to make the glass half-full again instead of half empty.  Therefore, with that in mind, here are some things that I am grateful for this year.  My family is still healthy.  My freshman-in-college grandson tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, but he just had a stuffy nose for a day or so and is now okay.  No

In My Opinion… Pat Grabill… October, 2020

I always tell Nancy Mullens that before I write the blog, I wait for some kind of "inspiration." Well, I was inspired by our WSI General Membership meeting on October 24.  It was the first General meeting since November of 2019.  It was a ZOOM meeting, which isn't the same as seeing everyone in person, but it was great to see everyone who logged in,
