CONTRIBUTINGEDITOR’SLETTER
My mom is Claire Farrell. I am very proud to say  that she is a local artist. My children and I call her a world famous artist because to us she is the best that ever held a paintbrush.My brother and I learned all sorts of useful things growing up in an art house. We learned the difference between watercolors and oils (oilsmake the house smell), how to stack paintings in acar (back-to-back and front-to-front) and that theframing table is the best place to wrap presents(lots of space that can’t be hurt). Most importantly,we learned to hang art so that the vertical center of the picture is 60” from the floor.Her art also gave me an incredible group of role models – her community of art friends.Angela Bradburn, Margaret Carter, Lolly Dickson,Toni Elkins, Judy Jarrett, Anna Kay Singley, LauraSpong and Bev Williams are the art women of my childhood.These are not salon artists who spent hoursdrinking coffee, smoking cigarettes and discussingcutting-edge art. These are real women whoworked hard to balance art, family, finances. Therewere sick husbands, struggling children, ailingparents, limited finances and inner-demons of self doubt.There were also moments of fantastic joy -- big ribbons at big art shows, commissioned artpurchases, one-woman art retrospectives and sales that had them giggling at the checks found in themail box. I loved seeing them celebrate each other.These are also women who made things happen.They taught art. They led art guilds. They startedstatewide art associations, and like Toni Elkins, they raised lots of money to support artists.From them I learned the importance of beingindependent, involved, creative, smart and takingchances. While I may have just been a tag-alongdaughter helping to shuttle paintings to andfro, these were the women I grew up watching,admiring and emulating. It really does take a village.I am very fortunate that I was in theirs.Thanks Mom. I love you.Sincerely,Bett Farrell WilliamsPublications and Projects Manager bfwilliams@thestate.com
