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.”

Deaths for the week of Jan. 10, 2020 - The Jewish News of Northern California
Army bus to take enlisted Jews to a synagogue in Salinas, where he met his wife, Eva, our mother. Once his enlistment was over, they married and remained in Carmel where they opened a gourmet French restaurant, Le Coq D’Or. However, his heart was in music and Jewish life, so he took Eva, who was pregnant, and their two small children to New York to study to become a Cantor. Five years later, after graduation, he spent two years as Cantor in South Bend, Indiana. Then the family moved to Palo Alto, California, where he served as Cantor at Congregation Beth Jacob in Redwood City with Rabbi Teitelbaum for over three decades. He earned a master’s degree from Stanford and an honorary doctorate from Hebrew Union College.
In the ’90s, he was diagnosed with throat cancer, but after two successful surgeries, he was able to live cancer-free for many years. Sadly, his voice was greatly impacted, and he was no longer able to eat normally. Yet, in retirement, he led services for Jewish holidays on cruises. He lost Eva to lung cancer shortly after their 50th anniversary. As part of his healing process, he published his autobiography, “Risen from the Ashes, Tales of a Musical Messenger,” which aptly describes his great courage and indomitable will to survive. He married Nina, who has been by his side for 20 years. In all his years, Judaism, service to others and education have been his guiding values.
Hans is preceded in death by his parents, Max and Ida Cohn, and his wife, Eva Cohn. He is survived by his second wife, Nina, and his daughters Becki Cohn-Vargas (Rito Vargas), Ruth Cohn (Michael Lewin) and Barbara Liepman (Michael Liepman), and six grandchildren.
Donations can be sent in his memory to the Hans Cohn Music Fund and CBJ Cares Committee by going to the Congregation Beth Jacob website donation page at bethjacobrwc.org/donate.

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.

Winning poster design for 2020 Common Ground Country Fair highlights native flowers, pollinators - Bangor Daily News
Collecting posters, prints and T-shirts from the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association’s annual Common Ground Country Fair is a tradition almost as cherished as the fair itself. Every year, fairgoers clamor at the merchandise tent for keepsakes featuring that year’s fun, farm-related design, which is chosen every year through a contest juried by members of the fair steering committee and the MOFGA board of directors.
This year’s design will highlight a pollinator and a native flower.
On Tuesday at the Maine Agricultural Trades Show in Augusta, MOFGA revealed the winner of its annual Common Ground Country Fair poster contest. The winning design by Portland-based artist Joy Grannis features blooming stalks of scarlet and magenta Monarda flowers, commonly known as bee balm, surrounded by three hovering yellow bees.

The 44th annual Common Ground Country Fair's winning poster design.
“The whole image really pops,” said April Boucher, director of the Common Ground Country Fair. “When we unveiled it at the [Maine Agricultural] Trades Show, people would stand in front of the image and take it all in. It’s a very stop-the-traffic kind of design.”
Grannis said that finding out her design had been chosen was “thrilling.”
“I wanted this for a long time,” she said. “I grew up knowing about the fair a...
