Lively Lemurs

June 5, 2022

By Janet Dodrill

Wonderful Live Lemur Animal Life Drawing Session with @animallifedrawing Holly Surplice at Duke Lemur Center @dukelemurcenter with host Sara Clark. Live Coquerel’s Sifaka Lemurs and Ring-Tailed Lemurs in the woods. We watched them eat, groom, rest and nap. Beautiful creatures, and 50% of the session was donated to support the center. The animals gave the nod that they wanted to be left alone, so we sketched from photos that the center provided of a Black and White Ruffed Lemur and Blue-Eyed Black Lemurs.

Schmitz-Horning Prints Decorate Family Heirloom

January 22, 2022

By Janet Dodrill

Cleveland-based wallpaper design and printing firm, Schmitz-Horning Co. (1905-1964) printed more than just color lithographic panoramic friezes (patent 1906) and advertising posters. They reproduced illustrations by reputable English illustrators and that sold in London, and possibly New York.

My great-grandfather co-founded the company, and grandfather ran it after him. Some of our relatives had a selection prints from Schmitz-Horning. Our cousin had some that depicted popular nursery rhymes that hung in her classroom that she taught in. Her father owned a small amount of stock in the company early on. He built a custom bar for their family room, and decorated it by mounting some of the printed lithographs. It is still in the family today, and shown below in a recent photograph.

Waterloo Arts Gallery, Art of the Ornament 2021

December 11, 2021

By Janet Dodrill

This year I created and donated an ornament to the Waterloo Arts gallery auction fundraiser. The auction was to benefit Waterloo Arts.

The auction was held December 3, 2021 at Waterloo Arts, 15605 Waterloo Road, Cleveland, Ohio 44110. The creative, mostly handmade, ornaments can be viewed at https://waterlooarts.betterworld.org/auctions/art-ornament-2021

My design was based on the Guardians of Transportation –– a Cleveland landmark that are massive carved stone pylons which line the Hope Memorial Bridge downtown, and also the name of two Cleveland sports teams.
