MUNOZ NEWS


NEW RELEASES

The latest prints are Rie Munoz's "Breakup", "Off to Kindergarten", "Chess Game", and "Scarecrow in Winter", and will be released on November 1, 2002. All four are expected to sell quickly. Rie Munoz's next release will be a fantastic silk-screen on December 17, entitled "Northern Lights Legend".

CHESS GAME

"Chess Game" is Munoz's most recent work. Four hundred prints were donated to Alaska's 'FRANK committee' (Fiscally Responsible People Needing Knowledge), a group fighting the upcoming ballot initiative, which proposes to move the legislature from Juneau to Anchorage. The NO MOVE sign on the side of the building refers to this initiative. Munoz had a large reception at her gallery in Juneau on September 4th. About 300 people attended. The Messerschmidt building in the painting used to be the home of Purity Bakery and was named after an old time Juneau family that ran it. My best friend's Grandmother, Amy Messerschmidt owned the bakery 40 years ago. As kids we would go behind the counter and Grandma Messerschmidt would scowl at us while handing us a bag of donuts.

RIE MUNOZ IN LONDON

The day after the "Chess Game" reception at the Rie Munoz Gallery, Rie flew off to London for a three week trip, with plans to meet up with her Army buddy Fran Nuelle. Their plans included attending the theatres, going to Piccadilly Circus, Harrah's Department Store, the Tate and British Museums, riding the 'tube' (subway), and enjoying the pub grub. Perhaps we will see some London images in her sketch book when she returns.

SOUTHEAST PHONEBOOK COVER

The latest Southeast Alaska Phone Directory features Munoz's "Whales in the Inlet" on the front cover. The cover was so popular that the company was advertising the phone book on the radio.

I'm not the only person collecting these books; they seem to be disappearing from the phone booths.
