"Dear Carroll, Well here it is hope it's not too late. I've been working hard I'm tired. Going to sign contract on house tomorrow. I sent an invitation to David Driskell, among others. I will write more later and send more slides. I've been working 60 hrs a week. I really must get a better job. I will stay in touch with you and hope to see you soon. Hope all is well with you. Love Roz P.S. Will write more later". 2. Five 8 1/2" X 11 " vintage copies of articles about Ms. Lechter and the Onyx Group. 3. Two 5" X 7" Color placards featuring work by Ms. Lechter - one is also an invitation to a reception at Odeon art house in Sag Harbor, NY, Friday, June 25, 1993 7-9 PM. 4. A page from the August 27, 1992 East Hampton Star that features notes, doodling in Ms. Lechter's hand. 5. A section of "Dan's Papers"(July 24, 1992) entitled "Multiculturalism" that features a photo and information about Ms. Lechter. NOTES: "Ms. Lechter's work springs forth from her expression of her individuality and her connection with her diverse back ground. Her belief in animism can be traced to her African-American heritage: a particular painting, "Seven African Powers", depicts the energy not seen, but still present in life-affirming objects like a gourd, starfish and female statue. Lechter's artgives birth to a higher, hidden reality - a transcendental, existential way of looking at things..." Overall VG.
