   Columbia College Comes to Beacher Country
                                                                 by Paula McHugh

   The song says, “June is busting
out all over.” Well then, July promis-
es to be bursting with multiple arts
experiences to keep your summer
calendar full—beginning this week-
end, in the waning days of June.
   You may have already heard the
buzz. This Saturday, the place to be
in Beacher Country is at the John G.
Blank Center for the Arts. That’s
when Columbia College will be offer-
ing a multi-arts extravaganza encom-
passing not only visual art, but also
dance, jazz and literary readings.
Columbia College, for those of you who
may not know, is the nation’s largest
arts and communications college.

   Peter LeGrand has been a photography professor
at the college for the past 15 years and a pro-
fessional freelance photographer for corporate
clients. He’s been using infrared film on his excur-
sions to the dunes over the past twelve years,
where his images of the nude in the dunes and
the lake, he explained, symbolize “the (lake) puri-
fying qualities, of the human being uniting
with the waters and rising from it.” Peter said
that when he was still an amateur, teachers at
his very first weekend photography workshop
told him he was “a terrible photographer, a
total disgrace to the profession.”
   “Suitably humbled I asked where I could
learn more and the next thing I knew was that
I was embarked on a graduate degree in pho-
tography,” Peter said.
   When asked which photographers he most
admired, Peter named Edward Weston, Imogene

   “Since September 11, I look at images of destruc-
tion in new ways, but still with an eye to the poten-

   Kay explained that her work for the exhibit at the
Blank was approached differently—actually “flipped”
from the way she serves clients as a graphic design-
er.
   Instead of starting with the client’s message to
create appropriate images, her work on exhibit was           T-Shirts
begun by creating images, combining and regrouping
them and letting the message evolve. Kay’s work is
not new to the Blank Center—she has had work on              Sweaters

   Have I ever seen such a varied and beautiful selec-
tion of wood? I don’t think so. Ash, aromatic cedar, maple,
oak, cherry, sassafras...the list goes on and on! It
was a touchy, feely kind of event; wood is warm and
alive and whether you were looking for furniture, bowls,
clocks, wall decor, or something for the kids, it was
all there. Even members of the Berrien County
Woodworkers Guild had their own area set up behind
the shop featuring, among other things, a gorgeous
wood bed.
   Center of the World Workshop is located at 13400
Red Arrow Hwy., Harbert, Michigan. Tell them Sally

The car itself weighs about 500 pounds. Walt offered
me a ride so I could see what it felt like to ride so close
to the ground. The bottom of the car inside cannot sup-
port any weight, so one must sit on the seat and

Walt drove out for a short distance on Barker Road.
The car was comfortable, but it felt strange to be in
such a small vehicle and to be so close to the road itself.

   When I walked into Panozzo’s Pantry, I
thought I was in an art gallery. No, not one
of those snooty ones on Chicago’s Oak
Street, but a pleasant, friendly, neighbor-
ly art gallery at the edge of New Buffalo.
   Along with being a lovely-to-look-at
gallery, there’s a spacious array of useful
oils, flavored vinegars, fancy pastas, all that
good stuff, and all beautifully displayed.
Gourmet food is also offered – things like
chocolate sauce in a tall sleek bottle (said
to be a finer hostess gift than a bottle of
imported wine), numerous cheeses, Italian
breads, Scottish oatmeal, imported candies,
Irish chocolates. Too, there’s kitchen uten-
sils made of everything from stainless to
neon, cutting boards, table linens plus
crockery bowls, hand painted tableware.
There’s even an avocado peeler with its own                      Panozzo’s Pantry, New Buffalo, Michigan

   So like Natalie and I are like at this really swank
wedding reception in Grand Beach last summer, and
we see that the way-cool photog is like from Vogue mag-
azine or something.
   I mean she’s that poised, self-possessed and utter-
ly on top of her trade.
   So we ask our friend, the groom: “Hey, Bob, who’s
that?”
   And Bob proudly says: “Oh, that’s my new niece-                                                             Columbia

   And you should know that Columbia claims to be
“the college to help you express yourself.” They fur-
ther note that they are “the premier school in Chicago
for the Visual, Performing and Media Arts, and are
also the largest Arts and Communications school in
the country.”
   Furthermore, Columbia’s teachers “are experi-
enced, working professionals who are connected to cur-
rent trends in everything from journalism to arts
management.”
   In other words, you get connected to your chosen
field the moment you walk in one of the Columbia              Columbia College is easy to find along South Michigan Avenue.
