Joyce Bogner Bohn said she has really enjoyed reading about fellow alums’ travels in the Harker Quarterly. “Since so many of you have great travel experiences, I thought I would share with you one of my recent ones,” added Joyce, who recently served as a volunteer for a week on the Ionian Dolphin Project in Greece. “I got to spend a week learning about and photographing dolphins on the Ionian coast. I highly recommend this for a teacher enrichment experience or for parents and students,” she said.
Elizabeth Sabatino Smith had quite an interesting display at the Art Object Gallery in San Jose’s Japantown. For an entire year, the South Bay artist dressed and painted only in one color. Then she did that four more times, selecting a different color each year. The result was “A Celebration of Color,” an exhibition of more than 50 of her monochromatic paintings featuring entire walls of yellow, red, green and blue, plus a collection of pieces in black, white and gray. The paintings were all offered for sale to benefit two of Smith’s favorite causes, Sacred Heart Nativity Schools in San Jose and Mulberry Farm School in Santa Rosa. Guests at the evening reception also were asked to share briefly in Smith’s challenge by dressing head to toe in a color of their choice. Smith herself wore a rainbow dress to the event.
To welcome the school year back in the fall, kindergartners and their families gathered at the lower school to socialize and enjoy delicious food, which was generously donated in part by Brown Chicken Brown Cow, a new restaurant recently opened in Campbell by Chris Yamashita.
