hen artist Lynne
Avadenka of

Ms. Avadenka could hard-
ly find information about
this female architect. "She is
a mystery, and this is my
way of paying tribute to
her," she said. Ms. Colter
built and designed struc-
tures throughout the
southwest United States at
the turn of the century and
worked with the Hopi In-
dians. Her buildings were
designed to look and feel like
the adobe designs of the era.
The book on M.E.J. Colter
is an accordion-fold format
in the shape of an adobe
house and contains cotton
and straw from New Mexico.
Three chapters of text are
sewn into the folds of the
book. The paper was hand
made by Kathryn Clark
and designed by Ms.
Avadenka. The University
of Nevada and the Univer-
sity of Michigan have pur-
chased the book, which sells
for $300. Copies of The Un-

common Perspective of
M.E.J. Colter are available

through Land Marks Press
in Huntington Woods.


Dr. Larry Kaplan may be
forced to convert his chi-
ropractic practice in South
Lyon into a rabbi's study.
South Lyon High School will
put on Fiddler on the Roof in
early May, and Dr. Kaplan
has been explaining
mezuzot, prayer shawls and
other Jewish customs to
young actors.
"One of may patient's
daughters is in the play,"
the doctor said, "and I've
been asked a lot of questions.
I feel like I'm the only rabbi
out here now."
South Lyon is in the
southwest corner of Oakland
County, south of Kensington
Metro Park.


Hundreds of VIPS strutted
their stuff recently at the
Strand Theatre's premier
showing of The All Night
Strut. Theater goers Jim
Grossman, Sharon
Knoppow, David Brody
and Lisa Lapides were
spotted schmoozing and
tasting hors d'oeuvres at the
Pike Street party for guests
invited to the show.
The sassy and classy
musical revue of the '30s and
'40s comes to the Pontiac
theater from the Gem
Theater in Detroit, where it
ran for over 400 shows
before moving northwest.
It is all for fun and to
revitalize theater in the
