People's Choice Award

HMCraig "Opportunities"

My work, Opportunities (pictured above), won the People's Choice Award at the Marblehead Festival of the Arts!!

Suzanne at the NorthEast ARCworks submitted the painting for me, and informed me of the award. I'm extremely fortunate to have such wonderfully supportive people in my life.

How lucky am I??

What Art Can Tell Us About the Brain

Dr. Margaret Livingstone starts speaking at about 5:30

I recently attended a wonderful talk by Dr. Margaret Livingstone, who is a neurobiologist and professor at Harvard. The event took place at Boston University's medical campus, right next to Boston Medical Center. I think there were about 5 artists in the audience, with the rest being medical students and Doctors.  I'll admit that I felt a little out of place, but that didn't matter because I was there to learn something. How often do you get the opportunity to hear someone brilliant speak?

It was interesting being in an audience of scientists. They asked significant questions, which in turn lead on to more learning (for me, at least).
