‘Everything Is Changing’

“It’s been 13 years since buying it” Linda Meigs said. “Little by little, with a lot of help, we’ve been able to restore the historic Florence Mill. It is now a National Register Historic Site.”

Owners Linda and John Meig’s commitment to the preservation of this historic structure and the creation of its ArtLoft Gallery in 1998 entered a second stage nearly a decade later with the advent of the Connor Meigs Art...

Hide and Seek

In 2007 mixed media artist Nolan Tredway had an anti-Cartesian moment in the Bemis Underground that resulted in a terrific collaborative exhibit featuring many current and former Lincolnites.

“Anti” because in response to Descartes’ familiar “cogito ergo sum” ("I think, therefore I am") Tredway countered with “I live, therefore I think,” as espoused by Spanish philosopher Ortega y Gasset, an admitted influence...
