Remembering Janice Lowry Gothold
My Janice moment: Early in the morning at the Gypsy Den, getting some coffee for my chica. She approaches me and says she loves my work. She knows I'm not much into art (she must've seen some article I wrote with my stock response: Art ends for me at Norman Rockwell, R. Crumb, and Jose Guadalupe Posada), but nevertheless insists that I take a reproduction of one of her journals. It stays inside my mailbox for months until I finally read it. Couldn't put it down--personal mixed with gorgeous, inventive art. Just like Janice.
Her memorial service is this Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Episcopal Church of the Messiah, 614 N. Bush St., SanTana. In lieu of flowers, Janice's family suggests donating to the wonderful Taller San Jose, a program near to Janice's heart. Her husband Jon tells us he will continue to update her website at janicelowry.com. Finally, a clip of Janice:
