THE POWDER RIDGE ROCK FESTIVAL
Middlefield, Connecticut
30 July - 2 August 1970

The local officials in Middlefield, Connecticut didnít believe they or the surrounding communities could support and manage the projected 30,000 young visitors who wanted another great happening and concert weekend.

However, the musicians were told not to show up in the days before the festival was to have begun.

Leonard Freed Biography






NADINE'S COUPLES

I paint the gay community because of their outness, their beauty, their honesty and their pain. Because of what they can say, what they feel they can't and how they can laugh at themselves. Because they have a unique perspective of being on the outskirts and looking away, in or forward. Because being discriminated against makes them stronger and weaker then most. I paint my shy sense of humor. I paint the power of a person. I paint the beauty and pain of a soul. I paint what I can't say. I paint the gay community because as an artist, a women, and a survivor, I feel the same way. Because I can relate.
