ART OF THE MATTER Elizabeth Elliott This wont be the first rime someones heard me say dont like surprises But having said that too often I finally realized the state ment needed qualifying Like most of us I dont want my world to change The comfort of stability makes life a good deal the adventurous types seek out shake em up moments I have enough challenges to last a lifetime BUT give me yellow roses home grown tomatoes a bigger IRS refund than 1 anticipated or acts of kindness from totally unexpected welcome those sur prises every time Theres one thing even bet ter though and thats the planning of surpris es and the fun of watching the stunned expres sions of those receiving them Thats what happened this past Sunday evening when the Greater New Braunfels Arts Council presented its Annual Art Awards Mouths dropping open happy tears and actu al disbelief on the faces of the honorees Though Jo Ann Lemmon chairman of the awards com mittee read a string of reasons why they were chosen these modest people seemed genuine ly amazed that they received awards for doing what they loved to do Its that old beneficial falloutonotherswhenyoufollowyourbliss theory at work again HeraldZeitung photo by DOUG LOVEDAY Enjoying some of the art work that was on display at Sundays Dinner With The Arts banquet and performance are Harry and Else Dehn Emeritus equals Enduring The first awards given were those called and Ive heard more than one per son question just what the term means as applied to the arts since the word is usually giv en as a title to retired professors And our awardees are anything but retired So we went back to the Latin root of the word which means to earn by And that says it all The Emeritus Arts Awards are giv en for a body of work steadfastly accomplished over a long period of time The people whose middle names are Ser vice are Olga Wilson Terry Walter and Car oline Weston Olga Wilson is a member of the New Braun fels Art League the New

shes been appreci ated Business gets an award too The business community has made many contributions monetary and inkind over the past year which put our awards committee in quite a quandary But they decided that for the second year in a row the business that had made the greatest impact on all the arts was the HeraldZeitung with its development and faith ful maintaining of the weekly Arts and Enter tainment page the monthly printing of the Artinerary on the cover of the Montage and the promotion of major arts events with special feature stories And as ex officio I didnt even get to vote Finally the Individual Arts Award Drum roll here The recipient was Karen Crandall not only for her lead ership in Youth ArtBeat implementation of the Murder Mystery Weekend at Prince Solms Inn and her
