other art fairs around Michigan. "I use baking
soda and salt to coat everything with a layer of
glass and bring out spectacular colors."
Goldberg will have only one contemporary

JEWS IN THE NEWS
Legendary folk-rock duo Paul Simon and Art
Garfunkel, reuniting for "Old Friends," a tour starting
at the Palace of Auburn Hills on Oct. 18, say they will
perform mostly songs from their five albums together.
Paul and Artie are so close they're almost like sib-
lings, ones who quarrel and patch things up eventu-
ally. Both are from middle-claK, Jewish backgrounds;
both had grandparents who were immigrants
(Simon from Hungary, Garfunkel from Romania);
they are the same age (62); and they have known
and played with each other since junior high school.
They broke up in 1972 because Simon wanted to
move in musical directions Garfunkel disliked. They
had a deal stating they would have equal say in their
recording efforts. Paul, who wrote the songs, ended

the partnership rather than be subject to Artie's veto
power over their joint projects.
They have reunited before. However, Artie and
Paul always seem to say something about their rela-
tionship that has ticked the other one off, leading to
long sounds of silence.
Paul told the audience at the news conference that
their joint appearance at the 2003 Grammys broke
the ice and they reconciled.
Artie said, "It's family, the two of us. Our moms
know each other. They're still alive. There has been a
deep, buried affection for the last decade or so and it
was the Grammys that forced it out of burial."
Both Artie and Paul, by the way, "played" the
celebrity" seders that bandleader Paul Shaeffer
(now music director of the Letterman show) held for
