Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens delivers daffodils to community recipients - Wiscasset Newspaper
Last fall, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens joined a host of other Mainers in planting daffodils, a flower chosen by the Maine movement in 1919. Suffragists would take bouquets to lobby legislators, hand them out at rallies, and supporters of the cause wore daffodils in their lapels.While Maine was early in its support of the 19th amendment, it wasn’t officially adopted as part of the U.S. Constitution until August, 1920. However, the daffodils are blooming now and would have made a stirring anniversary tribute had the Gardens been able to open as usual on April 15.
Undaunted by delays caused by a global pandemic, essential staff at the Gardens aren’t letting those blooms go unseen. Staff horticulturist Lesley Paxson and Youth & Family Program Coordinator... Feb 1, 2020

Figures, Flowers And Fire - South Pasadena Review
Sarah Bane Gallery in Fullerton, quit her job and showed for the next 10 years at the gallery, where she sold more than 100 of her paintings. She remained there until 2009, then returned to school to earn an MFA in painting from Claremont Graduate University.
“After that, my work shifted into being curated for group shows,” Sobieski said. “I worked with different curators and was in multiple shows, and that’s what I’ve been doing up to this point.”
Sobieski’s paintings depict a variety of subject matter, ranging from figures and animals to elements of nature. Her work uses lush oils on linen canvas to explore the formal elements of painting, with sincere imagery that speaks to the notions of beauty, abundance and loss.
“In 2005 I began a series of flower paintings to change up my practice,” Sobieski said. “Much of my concentration had been tied to trying to grasp the human physical form, and I wanted to freely explore more of the formal elements of paint. I played with composition, color and paint surface. I used flowers because they are a forgiving structure to render and are also loaded with content.”
“Debutante,” oil on paper, 2003.
Another subjects Sobieski enjoys portraying is fire, which has played a significant role in her life. When she was 17, her childhood home in Pasadena burned down due to an electrical blaze. Sobieski’s two sons, James, 22, and Ollie, 20, work as emergency medical technicians, and her latest project, commissioned by the L.A. County Department of Arts and Culture, involved designing windows for a new fire station in Santa Clarita.
“It was very serendipitous when they approached me for the project, because I’d had some fire paintings in my MFA show for graduate school,” Sobieski said. “I really enjoyed doing the collaboration, and I felt like I had a lot of kinship with the project. The thing I loved about this project was the purpose and the positive impact it has on the community. I feel like the project picked me.”
For the Santa Clarita fire-station project, Sobieski enlisted fellow ArtCenter graduate Tim Carey and Judson Studios in South Pasadena, who fabricated windows featuring Sobieski’s colorful images that capture the tradition and reflect the life of a firefighter. In the near future, there will be a dedication ceremony that honors the firefighters and unveils the windows to the community. Sobieski also is working on a related coloring book for kids that will be given out at the dedication.
Her May 17 solo show at Plan:d Gallery in Frogtown will combine her two main bodies of work — figurative paintings and florals — with the possibility of some glasswork as well.
“I like painting flowers because they’re so forgiving,” Sobieski pointed out. “It’s not like drawing people, where you can instantly tell if something is off. With petals, you can twist and manipulate the elements without it looking wrong. What’s more important is the vocabulary of the mark, the color and the distances between the objects — that’s what tells the story.”

Science, creativity meet at St. Michael School's flower show - CatholicPhilly.com
And her schoolmates could enjoy the exhibit all day after it was set up for judging in the morning and remained on display for the evening open house.
Students were not shy about expressing their love of St. Michael the Archangel school and Catholic education. Multiple hands raised at once when the eighth grade class was asked why students should come to Catholic school.
“I think it’s a really good way to build good morals and good habits in terms of respect and kindness,” Cresbo said. “What you learn in Catholic school is to take your faith and to use that in the world around you.”
Student Tyler Scalley referenced the faculty as his favorite part of St. Michael School, saying, “They want to make sure all the students get the best education.”
Shirley Orlowski, mother of second grader Alicja and a school volunteer, said that after looking at five other schools, the family atmosphere at the Levittown parochial school made all the difference and was the right school for her family.
“It seems like everyone has known each other for years, and that’s why we chose it here,” she said.
St. Michael the Archangel is recognized in Bucks County as a school of excellence. In 2019 it was voted “Best Private School Bucks County” by Bucks Happening and voted “Best Catholic School” by Best of Bucks by the Bucks County Courier Times.
In addition, the school was selected as the best Catholic school in Levittown by the Levittown Business Association.
It has been nominated again this year for “Best Private School” by Bucks Happening. Vote for St. Michael the Archangel in the contest here. Voting ends on Feb. 17.
