Celebrating 2/22 With Two Posts!


The eldest of the offspring just sent these images to us. This is a picture of IARC, the International Arctic Research Center in Fairbanks, Alaska. She is up at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, UAF, doing Grad work in Chemical Oceanography. She LOVES it up there -too cold for me, but UAF does have wonderful BFA and MFA programs...

The Student Ceramics Guild Visiting Artist, Justin Novak, Figurative Ceramic Sculptor will be at UAF March 6 and 7, 2009. You can contact the UAF Art Department Ceramics Program at 907-474-7530 for more information.

What a great carrer your daughter is persuing. Since I've been living here for a while, anything below about 45 is cold to me now. Great sculpture there.

thanks for the post Linda. Yes, originally she was a Geography/GIS major and fell in love with the changing science of the ocean. She gets to go on really cool research trips out in Alaska's oceans.

Normally, there are terrific Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) up in Fairbanks, but just read a story in the newspaper that the sun flares have been a little sparse this winter -still not enough to make me want to move up there -ha!
