Some of the people and events at the ICS

Our time at the ICS is drawing to a close and Mary and I are very grateful for being able to study and work at this remarkable facility. As wonderful as the facility is , it is the people who make it really work.  The exemplary Staff  have done everything they can to assist us with our work, and we have become good friends.  the same is true of our fellow artists.  we all shared information and experiences, and assisted each other when ever possible and will remain in contact.
