    “People have eyes to see, ears to hear and art to feel.” Jo Ann Rothschild quoted her first teacher, Leo Garel, in an interview discussing her upcoming gallery opening in Stockbridge, MA. “One of the things that Leo taught is that art is useful for everyone. We do not have a specific organ to help us experience or even process our emotions, and that is where art comes in. Leo used to say that art is the organ for emotion.”

  • Allen Shawn, Award-Winning Composer and Author

    In 2007 he wrote his memoir, Wish I Could Be There: Notes From a Phobic Life, in which he began to explore the roots of his own inner emotions. As he delved deeper into his past, it became increasingly apparent that his twin sister Mary played a central role. This realization inspired a second memoir in 2010, aptly titled Twin and devoted to Shawn’s relationship with Mary, who at the age of eight was diagnosed with autism.
