Dos Palos

This is an idea I had at the art center the first is Queene Amirian 1908 1988 she was a founder of the Art Center, Palo Alto citizens for a cultural center which opened in 1971. The second is a young photographer who was on the cover of the weekly self portrait of Emma Sloan which I’m guessing is about 60 years later.

edit to add, less than a week later: I met Sloane The subject of the self-portrait above outside of a Café in Palo Alto; Sloan says that Cal Arts is the next step in Sloan’s development as an artist. Sloan is a graduate of Gunn whose parents  may have graduate from Paly if I got the story correct. I guess I should get straight whether I need the “E” or not. Close enough for the Internet. Did I mention that Sloan was a winner of $500 and the Palo alto weekly photo contest and also besides having to work published is on display at the art center in the conference room near the Blach index exhibit. Met a woman named  KREMER who said that she’s a Castilleja grad and one of her photos was also in the exhibit.
