Demonstration and Book Discussion with Lynn Loscutoff, Saturday, June 20th

North Shore Arts Association artist member and a former NSAA Vice-President, Lynn Loscutoff presents a demonstration and book discussion at the NSAA galleries on Saturday, June 20th at 3:00 p.m., free and open to the public.
An artist and colorist, Lynn has been teaching for many years using Yupo, a synthetic paper, as the support for her watercolors. She enjoys sharing her knowledge and experience and will be demonstrating her techniques with an emphasis on creative inventiveness!

In addition to her many artistic accomplishments we congratulate Lynn on the publication of her new book 'Loscy and Me: The Artist & the Boston Celtics Legend, Jim Loscutoff, A Scrapbook/Memoir'.
From 1957 to 1969, the Boston Celtics won eleven NBA championships in thirteen years and eight championships in a row (1959-1966), the longest consecutive streak of any North American professional sports team. Among the players during this period was "Jungle" Jim Loscutoff, along with Bob Cousy, Bill Russell, and more, all coached by Red Auerbach.
In this highly personal memoir, Lynn Loscutoff tells the story of the Celtic "wives" and their journey supporting their men and one another. Lynn, an artist who later served as the Executive Director of Boston's prestigious Copley Society, writes with both humor and honesty, and being a Celtic wife, about her life with Jim after he left the team. Packed with vintage photographs, some never before printed, 'Loscy & Me' is both a scrapbook of an adventurous life and a tribute to the women behind the men. Foreward by Arnold "Red" Auerbach.
