Stephen, Nina Perkins offer thanks … and an invite
Lawton Gallery curator Steve Perkins and his daughter Nina would like to thank the University community for their support and condolences in the aftermath of the tragic death of Steve’s wife Arda Ishkhanian, who passed away in Egypt last month. Arda was a popular longtime painting instructor for UW-Green Bay Outreach and the Summer Art Studio camps program. Monetary donations to the family are being used to set up a scholarship for that program. The Perkinses also are inviting the University community to their “House Party for Arda,” this Saturday, March 16 (10 a.m. until late) at 908 Talbot Ave., De Pere. The event will feature food, DIY artworks, Egyptian Art, a WC Gallery mini-retrospective of Arda’s works, Egyptian shaabi music and more. Children and young artists welcome; drop by anytime. Call (920) 337-2976 with questions or for more info.
