"Red Diary, Black Book"
by Kathryn Henneman


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.”

Time:         5-7 p.m.

Val Vista Lakes Womens Club member wins 100 Candles

The Val Vista Lakes Women's Club had their Annual Welcome Back Dinner last Wednesday night at their beautiful clubhouse in Gilbert, Arizona.

The club's mission is to promote a positive environment for the women of the Val Vista Lakes Community, where they can participate in activities that build friendships and serve the needs of the community at large.

Kathryn was gracious enough to donate a print of her "100 Candles" which commemorates the 100 year birthday of the State of Arizona to the raffle that night.

Donna Gronemeyer was the lucky winner of the print!
