"Red Diary, Black Book"
by Kathryn Henneman
SPOTLIGHT: BANKING ON ART
Partnership is a key business word, especially when business and art come together—literally business and pleasure. Why is a global financial organization like Northern Trust interested in visual art? Arizona Citizens for the Arts answers, “art works!” Art creates job opportunities in numerous fields such as design, graphics, advertising, galleries, performing art venues, and for the artists themselves.
An example of such partnership will happen between October and January when Northern Trust in Phoenix hosts a showing of abstract impressionist paintings by artist Kathryn Henneman. The theme of the show, “Red Diary, Black Books” centers on the 3 foot by 6 foot mixed media work on canvas titled “Red Diary.”
According to Henneman, Marilyn Monroe's red diary provided the inspiration for her to create the piece. "She led a very public life, and her only privacy was her diary. I know that she loved to read," Henneman said. "A 'red' diary is a contrast to 'black' books related to banking and business. Red and black, private and public, fiction and nonfiction, art and business."
Harold Dorenbecher, Senior Vice President and Managing Executive , says, “Partnership between local artists and Northern Trust displays our commitment to the importance of visual art and allows each viewer to experience the personal emotion of viewing it. This program provides three exhibits each year featuring a new artist for each exhibit. The artists selected represent a broad range of styles, media and focus.”
