Katherine Sherwood's story made it all over the country. But not in the intimate way it appears in this issue. The UC Berkeley art professor talks about the shock of her brain hemorrhage, how painting was the most powerful healing practice of all and how her painting became even better after her stroke. Wholeness is the subtext of our conversation with much-beloved figure around San Diego, James Hubbell. Calling him an artist/architect doesn't cover all the bases. He's one of those multi-gifted creators hard to categorize. Plus we have J. Kathleen White's "The Cur(s)e of the Mummy," Leta Ramos and Oakland's Creative Growth Center and other goodies.
