Features

ARTS AND SCIENCES
by Lindsay Obermeyer
The abstract beauty of medicine, technology, and math inspire Laura Splan, Ruth Scheuing, and Daina Taimina.

GIVING VOICE TO CREATIVITY
by Jill Heppenheimer
Successful artwork reflects technical skill—developed through dedicated practice and experimentation—and a creative vision that speaks from the artist’s soul. DY Begay, Ramona Sakiestewa, and Lewis Knauss are cases in point.

NEEDLEPOINT
by Stephen Beal
Stephen Beal creates in two media: words and stitches. Here, a sample of each: a short story in three parts, and artworks that similarly reflect a love of narrative and humor.
On the Web: Stephen Beal's Color Memoirs

THE DINNER PARTY STILL ROCKS
