Week of April 3rd, 2017: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Sometimes you are in the right place and the right time. May years ago, in a previous life and career I spent a few years in the employ of Herman Miller. During part of those years, it was my responsibility to bring the company’s new products to market and that meant I interacted with many parts of the company, including the graphic design department. Stephen Frykholm was the director of the department at the time, I recollect. The Herman Miller picnic posters are recognized today as significant contributions in the art world. I liked working with Stephen, admired his graphics and asked him out of the blue, to sign a set of posters for me. That was unusual back then, not so much now; several of his posters, some in our offices are part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in NY. And after many years of being in storage we brought them out and they grace our current office.
John and Christina have contributed to the art collection; John by including a painting from his grandfather artist and Christina from a recent purchase.
Linda Whittemore resides in Paia, Hawaii. Her art just stopped me on my tracks. I saw one and had to buy a bunch, lucky me. They’ve been pleasing me and inspiring me for a while now. All her worked is pressed on paper; yes, it’s unique. She creates each image on a stainless press and presses that on to paper creating a distinct, beautiful original every time.
