Bravo Regarding the Sept. 28 Northern Express letter “Just The Facts” by Julie Racine, opinion column “E Pluribus Unum” by Thomas Kachadurian, and Spectator column “Fear Not” by Stephen Tuttle: Bravo. Bravo. Bravo....

Right On OMG. Julie Racine’s letter “Just the Facts” in the Sept. 28 issue said everything I was thinking. I totally agree. Amen sister...

Kachadurian’s Demeaning Sham Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion piece “E Pluribus Unum” is a very ill-informed perspective of American history. He attempts to portray our past as a homogenized national experience that has transcended any ethnic and regional differences with “the understanding” that our differences shouldn’t really matter...

Opinions Disguised As Facts Freedom of speech is a founding principle upon which our country prides itself, and because of this we all have a right to our opinion. It is when opinions are disguised as facts that we allow for ignorance to spread like wildfire...

Reject Your Own Stereotypes In his “E Pluribus Unum” column of 9/28, Mr. Kachadurian starts calmly enough with a simple definition and history of that famous motto from the Great “from many, one” seal of the U.S., but soon goes off the rhetorical rails. Alas, this heritage-sharing chat with neighbors soon turns into a dirty laundry list polemic, based on an us vs. them worldview...

Thanks For Just The Facts Thank you sooooo much to Julie in Marion for laying out the laundry list of right wing fabrications in her letter last week...

From Pencil to Pixel: Jordan River Art Center Exhibit Shows a Book‘s Progress

- February 17th, 2005
How does an illustrator/author put a book together? The answer is revealed in “From Pencil to Pixel,” a new exhibit at the Jordan River Art Center in East Jordan.
The exhibit presents original illustrations and their accompanying books from several Michigan authors and illustrators. Animation techniques, the development of illustrations for a story, and the technique of multiple drawings and story boards are also detailed.
Result? You can compare the artist’s original illustration with its marked page in the published book and learn just how it all came together.
The exhibit features works from the Mazza Museum Collection as well as artists Betty Beeby of Eastport; Jan and Gary Bower, Traverse City; Mary Fuscaldo, Traverse City; Mary Hramiec Hoffman, Harbor Springs; Heidi Marshall, Harbor Springs; Wendy and Brian Froud, England; Ken Scott, Suttons Bay; and Kathy-jo and Ed Wargin, Petoskey.
“From Pencil to Pixel” is literally an education. Four videos explore different techniques of animation. The story board technique and drawing for animations are exhibited. Animators participating are Diana Morse of Grand Rapids; Jim Middleton, Battle Creek; Rob Hughes, Traverse City; and Dave Baker, Galesburg.
The exhibit continues through February 26, and is open daily from 1-4 p.m. For info, call 231-582-6399.
