Getting ready for Devon Open Studios this weekend (Sat 11 & Sun 12 Sept 2010). I’m exhibiting in Cockwood Village Hall EX6 8NU with three other artists – photographer Roy Adams, watercolourist Tony Bird and printmaker Moragh Brooksbank. My work includes these collections of bundles of postcard fragments.
I’m still hoping to find the family of Joseph Schulist, the America GI whose wartime love letters I’m using to create a new piece of work.
The story was on TV in Wisconsin, but no luck so far. You can watch it on TMJ4 here:http://tiny.cc/3xd28
I’m looking for the family of Joseph Schulist, an American serviceman in England during World War II. I’m an artist based in Devon, England, and I’ve acquired some letters written by Sgt Schulist which I plan to use in my work and I’d love to know what happened to him. I won’t be publishing the letters, just giving hints at their contents.
I’m a paper artist currently working with a set of love letters which start around the end of World War II. They’re written by an America GI Sgt Joseph F Schulist 16005837 to a WREN based in England. I’d love to know what happened to Joe; I don’t think the lovers ended up together, but was he happy in the end?
