Reflections ’67: yay, team!

9 02 2017

In Honolulu, four-fifths of the editorial team celebrate the publication of Reflections ’67, a coffee-table album of classmates’ biographies of the Punahou School Class of ’67. Where else but in a bar for breakfast?


On Oahu I designed and did the layout for the hard-cover book. Barb Young Morgan and Nancy Somers Shaw (wearing our 50th reunion attire above) were in charge of development, i.e. ideas and fundraising. Brian Sullam edited the text from his home in Maryland. Missing from the photo is Christine Davis Escobar of Arizona who coordinated intake and traffic of stories and photos among all our classmates. Several other classmates helped with research, and we send our thanks to those who submitted the content. Good job, everyone! (Photo by Susan Sullam)

Today the main shipment of books is scheduled to land at Honolulu Harbor from Korea where the books were printed. George Engebretson of Legacy Isle Publishing facilitated the printing and delivery. Now our team has the pleasant task of distribution. It’s so exciting!

This event kicks off several months of events for our 50th reunion celebration on Hawaii island and Oahu, culminating in the Alumni Luau in June on campus.

In other celebratory news, all three of the collages that I took to the Punahou Carnival and shown in the previous post have found homes.  I’ve updated my virtual gallery at the “Paintings” tab above, as well as the “Retrospective” page. My inventory is a little lean at the moment.

A few days ago, a neighbor who is the mother of a former art student of mine inherited  a dozen ready-for-paint stretched canvases in various sizes and gave them to me. It was perfect timing to encourage me to make new works.

Yeah! “Go to your studio and make more art!”
