Our project for the International Nature Art Forum 2007, (14. "A Winter's Tale - Bureau of Atmospheric Anecdata") could not have been realized without the help of several people. Paul Amdamaschek gave us endless support in the interview process, interpretation and editing of our audio project. Anke Mellin was an enthusiastic collaborator assisting with the interviews and in the end giving us a lovely German song to add to the art piece. Dean Clyne's expertise was invaluable in so many ways. I would like to also thank Anke Mellin and Dorit Crossier for being available, supportive curators for this spectacular exchange of ideas and art works. The Okologisches Schullandheim in Licherode was our base camp and the people responsible there, Klaus, Angelica, Paul, Susi, JiSue, Ilona (who created meals that were works of art), Gaby, Johannes, Frank and all of the others were quick to welcome us with a smile, generousity and any assistance we needed.
Thank you to Petra our godmother. Thank you to the communities in and around the Licherode, Germany areas for such a warm welcome.
Also a personal thank you to Harold, Ellen and Louisa from Galerie Landhaus Licherode for making our stay so special, we will always remember your kindness.
Last but not least, thank you to all the artists that participated. The art was spectacular and inspiring. I feel honored to have been a part of this exhibition/forum.

I hope I haven't forgotten anyone.

Warm wishes,


Cheryl Wilgren Clyne currently resides in Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA.
