Werner art 3

Werner art 1

Janet Werner's intriguing portraits of fictional people caught the imagination of art critic Robert Enright, who wrote in The Globe and Mail that "they may be ordinary people, but they are extraordinary paintings."

Her 50 or so small and large oil paintings were shown before Christmas at Winnipeg's Plug-In Gallery and the MacLaren Art Centre, in Barrie, Ont. Werner, a graduate of Yale, taught at the University of Saskatchewan before coming to teach in Concordia's Faculty of Fine Arts.

She says her portraits are composites of ideas and feelings, composite images of half-remembered and half-imagined faces. In her artistic statement about her exhibit, she suggests that her portraits are all manifestations of the same person, perhaps the artist herself.

Stroke Therapy

Majid Fotuhi

Strokes suddenly deprive the brain of blood. The areas involved gradually die and leave patients with a large range of deficits, from the inability to move their fingers to loss of language or even death. For centuries, neurologists used the relation between the location of strokes and the type of ensuing deficits to discover the function of each specific part of the brain. Now, for the first time, they are not only learning from these patients, but can offer them immediate therapies.

Dr. Majid Fotuhi is a senior neurology resident at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He graduated from Concordia's Science College in 1987, and joined the neuroscience graduate program at Johns Hopkins University, where he received his PhD in 1992.

Here is the contribution of Elizabeth Kalbfleisch (in the centre). She is flanked by organizers Emily Fulvey and Cassandra Leslie.
