Freeze and Fervor -- Guest curator, Sherry Camhy, is an artist, author and teacher. Her work is in the permanent collection of several museums and has been featured in art magazines as well as museum and gallery shows.

Ms. Camhy selected Chilly by Paul Callahan of Wauwatosa, WI to launch the month. Callahan cleverly entices our sensibilities by noting in his description that the model is
