I trust that all
of you readers have managed to stay warm and
healthy during these extremely cold days. My
great uncle told me that during World War I the
men used to put hot cayenne pepper between their
socks and the shoe (not directly on the feet!) to
keep their feet warm.
While waiting to
aquacise, I spotted this David Letterman style

Why You Might

whisper "Scuse me, pardon me" to each

6. You think an

Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
As we proceed with opening our
first exhibition of 2008, we are excited to
present a group of photographs in our Main
Gallery by Joplin Linda Teeter. This is a new
show that Linda put together late last year for
an exhibition in Kansas City, and the KANSAS CITY
STAR said about this show, "Linda
Teeters photography series, "Galactic
War", is a body of work which addresses
politics, ecology, and environmental awareness.
Galactic War presents dramatic visions of
patriotic firework displays." These 19
pieces are colorful and thoughtful and create an
interesting display. Ms. Teeter has created a
media montage with sound and dialog, which she
will personally deliver twice on opening night,
the first time at 6:30. She explains her show:
"In this exhibition, I hope you will find
the versatility from my short photographic
career, and that this series will provoke thought
and visually remind you of paintings
sprinkled with whimsy--- this is my
process, as an artist over photographer. I find I
must never limit myself to predictable media. As
you experience my spiritual pilgrimage, journeyed
through a magical photographic process, you will
see images shot during the last year. I am always
mystified to what one click of a camera can
produce in the second of the flash. These
terrestrial-type images showed up on my computer,
instead of the expected prior nights
fireworks display. The Galactic War tells of
global warming, chemical use, and the outcome in
our fight for survival. The accompanying music is
movie soundtrack THE BROWNING VERSION,
orchestrated in 1994. I have created the dialog
which you will find or hear as you "journey
between" the 19 pieces of this
exhibit." Please come to our opening night
reception on February 8th at 6:00 and meet the
artist and hear her presentation and view this
show! The exhibition will remain in the gallery
until February 24th viewable during regular
