Rose Johnson… Rose!

I was saddened to hear just recently of Rose Johnson’s recent passing, June 1.  I did not know Rose personally, but admired the strength of her vision, and commitment to her art.  She was part of Phoenix, and Bisbee, before it had an “art scene”. It’s very sad to hear what happened…a senseless incident on the beginning of her new adventure. I admire the strength of her work and commitment…may we all be inspired to do so much better. In honor and respect, my sincere sympathy and gratitude. Thank you, Rose.

A memorial at the Icehouse this coming Saturday, June 20 begins at 10 pm.
