It will also be chance to celebrate Peggy's 92nd birthday, which is the next day.

TWELVE STEPS PORTFOLIO

11.4.09 In 2003 Peggy started working on a series of metaphorical paintings in response to a healing and spiritual program called The Twelve Steps.  She linked the elements in the program to animal figures and spiritual icons to give these concepts a new and deep allegorical dimension.  As a fundraiser for the film, we have produced The 12 Steps portfolio. These are high quality, archival pigment prints of each of Peggy's paint-ings in the series, as well as an introductory essay by musician, minister and mythologist, Rebecca Armstrong. The cost of the portfolio is $275.

PAT HUMPHRIES

As befits Peggy's love of songs of social justice, Never Turning Back takes its name from the renowned song by activist and award-winning songwriter/performer, Pat Humphries. The song has traveled around the world and entered the folk tradition, an achievement rarely experienced by an independent songwriter in her lifetime.
