Happy Anniversary

by Eileen Coristine

With this 10th Anniversary issue of Art of the Peace I have been able to complete a circle. For my first issue as editor, in Spring 2009, I interviewed Hythe potter Bibi Clement for our cover. This spring, I was out to visit Bibi again to bring everyone up to date on what’s new in her creative realm.

Back where I started, in a way, but in other ways a fitting ending. After editing nine issues of Art of the Peace I am about to hand on the torch to Susan Thompson. No stranger to Art of the Peace, Susan’s writing has been featured in the magazine since our first issue. She will be in charge from Fall 2013 and I wish her and her readers a long and happy relationship. This has been an inspiring gig and I’m very proud to have been a part of Art of the Peace since the inception of the association. Before becoming editor I served as vice-president and wrote articles frequently over the years.

Along with Bibi Clement, all of our former cover artists are featured in this anniversary issue; so this is an update on everyone. And all of our cover story authors are also featured in this issue, including former editors Dymphny Dronyk, Jody Farrell and Wendy Stephansson. So enjoy this 10th Anniversary Art of the Peace Magazine: the stories of 22 exceptional regional artists, all as excited about their art as ever, presented by the talented and dedicated writers of Art of the Peace Magazine.
