  1. Hey Eugene,
    Just checking out your recent post and remembering the “old days” at the IAC. Also just received word of the Kate Kuper memorial coming up on November 11 at the dance department here at University of Illinois. She passed away last year, I’m sorry to report.
    Still see Dan Kedding occasionally. Check out my website for new works. I had a show ar Elmhurst College last year and a 45 year retrospective exhibition at Illinois WesleyanUniversity, too.
    My wife Sandy and I live in Urbana and I teach two painting courses to campus honors students here at the big U.
    Take care,
