Governor honors artists with art
By Heidi Masek

• Well done: Five artists and one family of art patrons were honored with the biannual Governor’s Arts Awards Thursday, Oct. 25, at the Statehouse. Gov. John Lynch and Dr. Susan Lynch presented composer Marilyn J. Ziffrin of Bradford with the Lotte Jacobi Living Treasure award, and gave awards to Phoebe Neiswenter of Pembroke for Arts Education’ choreographer and percussive dancer Drika Overton of Portsmouth for Arts Leadership; and Cape Breton fiddler Harvey Tolman of Nelson for New Hampshire Folk Heritage. The Bloomfield family of Bow received the Individual Arts Patron award. New Hampshire artists were commissioned to create unique awards based on the Statehouse dome’s eagle, including potter Gerry Williams of Dunbarton, Randy Miller of East Alstead, Canaan sculptor Emile Birch, potter Kit Cornell of Exeter and Suzanne Pretty of Farmington.

• History from the air: David Saxe of Auburn has been documenting the Lewis and Clark Trail since 2001 from the air and the ground. He’s created a sequence of aerial pictures taken at 10-second intervals, compiled into a video that condenses the flight along the Missouri, across the Rockies and down the Columbia River into about 20 minutes. Interspersing segments of this video with stills, Saxe will discuss the route and the 1804 expedition from St. Louis, Mo., to Astoria, Ore., Saturday, Nov. 3, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Peabody Mill Environmental Center, Brook Road in Amherst, 673-1141. Saxe is a systems architect, pilot and photographer who formed USA Aloft (, a New Hampshire-based software and photography company whose initial project was to document the Lewis and Clark Trail, $5.

• Multi-media: Bring your wallet. Art Aids Art is screening the documentary Bigger than Barbie, which features the 450 women artists in the Monkeybiz Bead Project, a post-Apartheid South African success story Saturday, Nov. 3, at 7 p.m. at artstream, 56 North Main St., Rochester, 330-0333, The Monkeybiz artists’ reinterpretation of traditional beading sold out in hours at such places as Sotheby’s of London. Monkeybiz beaded dolls and animals will be available to buy, as well as South African artisan jewelry and wearable art, after the film. Proceeds support the construction of eKhaya eKazi (Home in the ’Hood), a multipurpose community center in Khayelitsha Township, where the majority of Monkeybiz artists live. Doors open at 6 p.m.

• Argh. Snow: Karin Hovey’s watercolors of snowy landscapes and Bill Earnshaw’s watercolor collages and acrylics make up “Holiday Sparkle,” which runs through Nov. 24 at East Colony Fine Art, 55 South Commercial St., Manchester, 621-7400.
