Rudy Droguett has risked his life for the love of his art. The artist, who is in his 70s, has traveled to Africa twice to take pictures of wild animals, which he later uses as subjects in his scratchboard etchings. He's come close to losing his life, he said. During one trip to Kenya, the vehicle he was riding in had a flat tire. There was a lion lying under a tree nearby watching the entourage. Not wanting to miss the opportunity, Droguett got out of the vehicle to take a picture.

A kaleidoscope of artists, styles and media are on view in Brand 38, the annual National Juried Exhibition at the Brand Library Art Galleries organized by the Associates of Brand Library. As juried by nationally renowned artist Ruth Weisberg, with awards to be announced Saturday, the Brand exhibit offers 74 mostly Southern California artists riffing on a theme of “Works on Paper: Beginnings.” But while all the oeuvres might originate on paper, the renderings cover the gamut of media, including oil, etching, colored pencil, linocut, photography, graphite on wax-infused paper, archival inkjet printing and the application of Chinese ghost money to a pulp-paper sculpted figure.

Nearly a century after James McCloud left Glendale’s Tropico neighborhood for Europe, the city on Monday will honor the World War I veteran by etching his name into marble at the Veterans Memorial outside City Hall. McCloud is one of 50 veterans to be honored Monday, the largest class to be memorialized in a single year since the five marble walls of names were unveiled in 1997. He is the only veteran of the War to End All Wars whose name will be added this year. Glendale’s Memorial Day observance will take place at 9:30 a.m. Monday at Broadway and Isabel Street.

Once again, the Forest Lawn Museum is host to the work of an extraordinary artist: the Russian-born painter Marc Chagall. Currently on its walls are 65 early monochromatic works, under the exhibition title “Chagall: The Early Etchings,” showing illustrations that are vivid and imaginative. The etchings originally illustrated two popular literary documents: “The Adventures of Chichikov,” by Russian poet and novelist Nikolai Gogol (1809-1852), also known as “Les Ames Mortes” (translation: “The Dead Souls”)

Talented and complete all-around players have routinely come through the pipeline the past decade to eventually star for the Crescenta Valley High girls’ water polo team. When the chips were down, an athlete like Jessie Stiles, Kristin McLaughlin or Lybov Tchougounova would rise up and become the go-to player the Falcons needed to carry them to a victory or a wealth of Pacific League championships. These days, Crescenta Valley has another player in that mold in Kim Fraisse, who didn’t begin playing water polo until four years ago. Since then, she’s earned plenty of recognition with her ability to shoot with pinpoint accuracy and hustle back on defense to break up counter-attacks.

Success on the high school swimming scene came quicker than expected for Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy's Kirsten Vose. An impressive freshman season highlighted by a runner-up finish in the 100-yard breaststroke at the 2012 CIF Southern Section Division I finals certainly raised the stakes for Vose diving into her sophomore season. Vose, a La Crescenta resident, responded by not losing a single race leading into CIF in 2013. She certainly raised the stakes even further when she posted the best times in the Division I prelims in the both the breaststroke and 200 individual medley.

The art of Francisco Goya is not something to love or hate. It is something to decipher. The Forest Lawn Museum in Glendale presents ?The Caprichos Etchings and Aquatints (1799),? 80 of the artist?s cutting edge copper plate prints, in a rational, eye-level format, to soften the impact of the emotive and chaotic imagery. The walls of the gallery are lined with etchings along with three centralized pillars containing significant works. This suite of prints is encrypted with moralistic, allegorical, satirical and political messaging that is delivered in a style that prefigures photojournalism.
