The Antique Maps of
John Cary and Alvin Jewitt Johnson
Annex Gallery Opening Reception
John Cary (1754-1835) began work as an engraver and set up business in London as a map publisher. He became one of the most prolific mapmakers of his time and was the first engraver to produce maps of utility by breaking the trend of highly decorative maps. Cary produced his maps for reference and practical use, compared to many of his predecessors whose maps had been produced as much as for works of art as for geographical reference. Alvin Jewitt Johnson (1830s-1880s) followed in the footsteps of mapmakers like Cary and Colton, producing high-quality and useful maps and atlases.  Examples of both their work will on display and for sale in the Annex Gallery during December, many beautifully framed.
Show continues through December 30.

Judith Petres Balogh, Sunset
Sunset is the fifth book by former Aurora/Shaker Heights resident Judith Petres Balogh. The author was an educator and administrator in the US Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DODDS) in Germany, where she taught classes for the gifted children. After working a few years as school administrator, early retirement followed. She and her husband now live in Ohio and in Hungary, where they converted a "disaster area" into a lovely home (described in This Old House By The Lake).  The Hungarian Academy of Arts and Science in Cleveland awarded her book The Countess and Her Daughter a medal for outstanding literary efforts.  She is pleased to introduce her new novel Sunset, about women bound by deep friendship, ignoring the burdens of age and of life accidents, defying loneliness and arthritis, and each in her own, unique way giving new meaning to life.
