Japanese Reveries

Alicia Patch Oldham's avatar Alicia Patch Oldham

At age 84, Alicia MAY BE the OLDEST ARTIST entered in ArtPrize! Tribute to Japan - with 3 daughters as collaborators, to raise awareness for earthquake/tsunami victims. Presented through artwork, drawings, photography, poetry. Since the devastating earthquake and tsunami of March 11, Japan has been in the minds and hearts of people around the world. During “Kodomo No Hi” (Japanese Children’s Day), a fund-raising ART EVENT at "Kumon Battle Creek Math and Reading Center" raised almost $800 for Japan disaster relief! Students learned about Japanese tradition: “Koinobori” (CARP KITES/windsocks) symbolize STRENGTH & COURAGE. Ronnie captured action photos of children running, jumping, showing off their art creations. We weren't sure if Alicia would be creating any more art due to her worsening macular degeneration. But she really wanted to participate in ArtPrize, and created portraits, Japanese scenes/landscapes. Mary - Japanese buildings. Lisa - photos, artwork with Japanese themes.
