Spring 2016 Yefim Cherkis Memorial Scholarship Recipient – Joseph Johnston

Congratulations to Joseph Johnston for winning the Spring 2016 Yefim Cherkis Memorial Scholarship! Jospeh will be exhibiting his winning portfolio, “Francisco: Struggling with Addictions” in Gallery Obscura in the Fall ’16 semester.

“There is no one I can talk to about Francisco…not my sisters (they want him deported), not my old friends (they want nothing to do with him and no longer visit us), not our neighbors (they have seen too much already), nor the people I work with (too personal and inappropriate). Francisco is an alcoholic and drug addict.”- Joseph Johnston

“I come home to find Francisco sleeping off a hangover. The dogs have torn apart a roll of toilet paper before also falling asleep beside him.”

Guest Speaker – Underwater Healer, Erena Shimoda

All are welcome to attend lecture by Underwater Healer, Erena Shimoda.

“For over two years I’ve had the pleasure of working with many amazing cancer survivors as part of my Underwater Healer – About Face campaign. Starting initially with 13 survivors, I raised funds on IndieGoGo to cover the cost of the portrait sessions for the survivors and to this day, all photography sessions are covered at no expense to them. The rest of the campaign money was donated to IHadCancer.com, an online community where survivors, family members and supporters share their stories and connect together. It’s been a profound joy to help cancer survivors celebrate regaining their health and life through underwater portrait shoots.”
