Met AnnAnne Lynch
yesterday and got to talking about our moms and their painting. Then found a picture of my mom with my niece,Sheila Koch
, at an art sale back on May 21, 1977. Both of these renaissance mom’s were amazing women. Raised zillions of children in the bad old days when women’s rights were trampled upon in ways we now think of as ridiculous. Sharon Lynch worked for Inner City Arts Council for a while and produced the chair painting in the style of Jack Beal during the same period my mom, Ann Valent, was riffing on the work of Georges Rouault and Henri Mattisse. We stand on the shoulders of giants. Hey,Kevin Lynch
, can I get a shout out on Cultural Currents?
