TCU offers theatre goers glimpse of Lithographs
Theatre-goers attending Texas
Christian University's production of
"Measure for Measure Oct. 2-6 also
will get the first glimpse of an art
collection new to Fort Worth.
TCU has received a large collec-
tion of lithographs by the late J.A.
Pecsenke, a New York-based, Hun-
garian-born artist known for his
musical and theatrical works. Nine of
the lithographs, depicting works by
Shakespeare, have been installed in
TCU's University Theatre.
Plans are to exhibit the entire
collection in conjunction with the
Van Clibum International Piano
Competition at TCU in the late spring
of 1993, said Dr. Andrew Harris,
TCU theatre chairman, who became
familiar with Pecsenke's work when
he was executive director of New
York’s Riverside Shakespeare Com-
Fittingly, the collection forms
yet another link to Fort Worth’s sister
city Budapest. Pecsenke was bom in
Budapestin 1942 and died in an auto-
mobile accident in Sweden in 1989.
The money to purchase the col-
lection has been given to TCU by
friends of Pecsenke, matched by
Time Warner Inc. Proceeds will be
used for the education of his teenage
daughter, Natalie, a student at the
American School in Budapest.
By the time he was 8-years old,
Pecsenke was apprenticed in the stu-
dio of a painter. He attended both
Gymnasium and Academy of Fine
Aits in Budapest.
Of the Hungarian uprising in the
fall of 1956 he later wrote: "It was not
easy to be 14 and to convince those
around us that there had to be some-
thin ' better out there. We became the
second Lost Generation.”
Pecsenke and two colleagues
founded the first Free Hungarian Arts
Academy after the war. During the
final year as a student, in the mid'60's,
he presented his first public exhibit at
the National Gallery of Hungary in
In 1965-67, he served as assis-
tant professor at the Academy of fine
Arts and also worked on 20 feature
films. "I dideverything in Hungary,"
he wrote, "acting, sets, stagehand,
stunts. That was the reason I left. The
whole life was so sullen, so nothing.
In the crazy, politically depressed
situation, I tried to do everything.”
Pecsenke’s art is best described
as eclectic. Included in the TCU
holdings are a series of 34 Commedia
del Arte lithographs, an Eight Days
of Creation series, and a Great Com-
In his lifetime, Pecsenke's wdrk
was shown in many one-man exhib-
its, including two at the Hammer Art
Gallery and at Lincoln Center in New
York and others in Chicago, Con-
necticut, Vermont, at Duke Univer-
sity, in Stockholm, and in Munich.
His lithographs and paintings are
in the private collections of Jose Fer-
rer, Helen Hayes, Jeremy Irons,
Joanne Woodward, and others. Mar-
jorie Niekrug, former president of
the American Society of Appraisers,
said of Pecsenke," If you have one of
his pictures, you-will find in it every
day another detail which is new and

The Association has been very
fortunate to have so many profes-
sionals who have come to speak about
ADHD. Much has been learned about
this disorder which has enabled the
necessary steps to be taken to see that
children get the care and treatment
that they so desperately need. Be-
cause of support groups like this, so
much is happening to change the
public's awareness of ADHD and the
ADHD child. More and more people
are learning what attention deficit
disorder really is and new guidelines
are being set up in the school systems
that will aid the ADHD child. Be-
cause of education, the community
can give these children a new vision
for the future.
If your child has ADHD, or you
feel that you have an at-risk child,
please plan to attend this meeting.
The Burleson Area ADHD chap-
ter was formed last year arid 11 as taken
pride in what has been accomplished
for the ADHD child in this area.
Tremendous response from parents
as well as educators in the area has
occured and steps are being taken to
learn to work together for the better-
ment of these children. All it really
takes is someone who cares and who
is willing to see that these children
get what they need at home as well as
school. For more information, call
