Janet Turner prints chez Paris
Barbara Edmonson, sister of Chico artist Janet Turner, has been invited by Who's Who in International Art to submit seven of Turner's original prints for the third annual exhibition "In Praise of Small Format in Contemporary Art." The show will feature 20 other artists and be open to the public this fall at the Christiane Peugeot Cultural Centre, 62, avenue de la Grande Armée, 75017 Paris. The date of the opening reception will be announced this month. The Janet Turner Print Museum was established on campus in 1978. It houses Turner's extensive collection of centuries of fine art prints by artists from many parts of the world. Since Turner's death, many friends and family have donated prints and paintings by Janet Turner to create a collection of her work as well. Museum hours can be found in the exhibitions section of the calendar.
'Graying of the North State' project funded
Michelle Neyman, Biological Sciences, and Dan Ripke, director, Center for Economic Development, received a two-year, $239,000 grant from the California Endowment "Graying of the North State." The grant will support an assessment of the increasing geographic concentrations of the older adult population in Northern California and their current and projected influence on community nutrition, health, and social service providers. Neyman's dissertation research focused on senior nutrition. "I'm looking forward to being a co-primary investigator on the project so I can devote professional development time to the research," commented Neyman.
J.J. burns up the links again
J.J. Jakovac, CSU, Chico's talented golfer, continues to drive in the victories. Jakovac just won the California State Fair Amateur Championship in Sacramento. This tournament has a field of more than 300 top amateurs. Jakovac finished the tournament at 15 under par and won the tournament by 3 shots! He birdied five of the last six holes and posted 65 in the final round. "I talked with J.J. right after the tournament, and he was as excited as when he won the National Championship," said Coach Keith Thomas.
