We talk with artist and Fulbright scholar Jacqueline Thurston about her time in, and obsession with, the statuary of ancient Egypt. Livia Stein talks about her time in India, her attraction to Gandhi and we show 3 of her inspired monoprints of the great man. And there's an interview with Bay Area luminary, clay artist Jim Melchert, who is always fascinating to listen to. What else? Read about contributing editor Jane Rosen's ten years of leaving Manhatten to come west. And Mary Stein, nearing 80, photographed in the air upside down as she works out at her dojo. Unbelievable. And more, always fresh, even years later.
