Resident artists to show work at the Red Brick
The Red Brick Center for the Arts is sponsoring a gallery showing and reception for its resident artists from 5-7 p.m. Thursday. It will feature local artists Elisa Ahmer, Sheila Broderick, Elizabeth Farson, Sam Harvey, Christie Interlante, Nancy Kullgren, Alicia Matesanz de las Heras, David Notor, Susan Olsen and Betty Weiss.
The Red Brick residents artists program is designed to help emerging artists by offering low-cost studio space. Residencies last for two years, and leases end in September, meaning this will be the final showing for the current group of artists leasing space at the Red Brick.
The arts center has also announced two summer workshops.
Liz Waters will conduct “Drawing Aspen,” from 9 a.m. to noon July 24-26 and Aug. 1-4. Waters will teach basic drawing concepts, including micro and macro landscape drawing and techniques in contour, gesture, shading and perspective. The workshops will include walking tours of town. The fee is $25 for one day, or $20 per day for two or more days.
Michael Raaum will teach “Exploring Visual Art” from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 20 and Aug. 10. Raaum will lead students on a tour through local art galleries and discuss visual arts and aesthetic awareness. The fee is $20 for each class.
The registration deadline for each workshop is four days before the class. For more information or to register, call 429-2777 or stop by the Red Brick at 110 E. Hallam St., suite 118.

The infant was in the apartment when the van crashed through the wall.
Carbondale Police Officer Matt Gardner said that the baby has shown improvement including a little movement on his own. More medical tests will be given to the infant over the next few days.

It’s hard to fight City Hall and even harder to fight well-funded neighbors who don’t want any development near them, a local man has realized. So he settled for less than what he and his partner bought the property for.
