Artist Profile October 2018 Artist Profile: Chip Travers

Submitted by Chip Travers


When I was a child growing up in New York, I always knew I would be an artist of some sort. I never was really too good with crayons or water paints but they intrigued me greatly, I guess it was the color in the lines thing, border and limits. When it was time to answer the eternal question all adolescents face “What are you going to be when you grow up?” I panicked. What was I good at? Math? Writing? Sports? Nope... Art, I could draw and create images...the rest is history.

  Fashion October 2018 Fashion: Dressing for an Arizona Autumn

By Karen R. Smith


If you’re not native to these parts, you’re probably accustomed to putting your summer clothes away right about now, and beginning to place sweaters, flannels and wools into your closet as the temperatures begin to slide into winter. As I write this, it’s 93 degrees and the kids are happily playing in the pool. The only sign of seasonal change is that I only have to call them in once at day’s end -- the temperature really does drop when the sun goes down! Dressing for Fall in Arizona is a balancing act, and for many that simply means throwing a sweater into the car if you’re going to be out past dinner time. That’s fine as far as it goes, but if you want to look put together, it takes a bit more planning.
