Artist Embraces Palestine In Work


Art can be a way to bring people together, even in tough circumstances. 

Deb Van Poolen found people living in tough circumstances in the Palestinian territories, where she made and taught art. 

It's part of a body of work devoted to subjects that can be overlooked by mainstream media.  So she renders her work in the medium of watercolor.  Van Poolen and her work visit Ashland this week; she joins us in the studio.
