Beverly Nadelman writes, “I have not been much in touch with Brandeis since I completed my studies. But today, as I read Brandeis Magazine, I felt the urge to write an update. Since graduation, I have made my living, sketchy as it has sometimes been, in the arts — briefly as a dancer, then as a professional and fine art photographer, showing mainly in the NYC area. For many years, I was studio manager in the photography department at the School of Visual Arts and taught photography. Today, I carve and decorate African-style djembes and ashikos, and Native American-style flutes and drums; teach drumming and flute workshops; and facilitate circles, sometimes with Alzheimer’s sufferers. Painting watercolors has lately dominated my time. I am currently artist-in-residence at the Rowe Center, in Massachusetts. Soon I’ll be investigating the “blue” areas of Arkansas, Tennessee and Kentucky to find a new place to live. I want a place with beautiful mountains but a milder climate, and I’ve been told parts of those states qualify.”
