Tonight on Inquiry we have a lively conversation with artist LISA BARTHELSON. Though she started out painting, her latest works involve using a crazy variety of  found objects and encaustic to create series of complex assemblages. Lisa also creates works on  a very large scale-using materials like duct tubing, play balls and Mylar emergency blankets to fashion large room sized environments. Tune in tonight for a fascinating talk with this dynamic New England artist. To see examples of her work and read her artists’ statement, go to:

Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
