Journey
Journey is an American rock band formed in San Francisco in 1973 by former members of Santana and Frumious Bandersnatch. The band has gone through several phases; its strongest commercial success occurred between 1978 and 1987, after which it temporarily disbanded. During that period, the band released a series of hit songs, including 1981's "Don't Stop Believin'", which in 2009 became the top-selling catalog track in iTunes history.   Its parent studio album, Escape, the band's eighth and most successful, reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and yielded another of their most popular singles, "Open Arms". Its 1983 follow-up, Frontiers, was almost as successful in the United States, reaching No. 2 and spawning several successful singles; it broadened the band's appeal in the United Kingdom, where it reached No. 6 on the UK Albums Chart. Journey enjoyed a successful reunion in the mid-1990s, and later regrouped with a series of lead singers.

Anthony J Rudisill: National Parks America's Last Refuge
A. J. Rudisill, who was born in Philadelphia PA, describes himself as a self-taught artist. Inspired by John James Audubon, he began drawing wildlife as a child. While a teenager, he relocated to Southern New Jersey and became a commercial artist. Greatly influenced by the surrounding coastal marshes, he indulged his passion for painting wildlife scenes in his spare time and became adept at the portrayal of the abundant wildlife in the area, particularly birds. As a painter, he preferred gouache over traditional watercolor and oil. When he turned his hand to sculpture, he used his firsthand observation of birds, transferring his knowledge and keen attention to detail from one medium to another.
 
Today, Rudisill’s passion is painting landscapes and seascapes, influenced by his current surroundings and by his travels throughout the United States. Preferring to work in acrylics today, Rudisill’s paintings are of an exceptional quality, so realistic they invite the viewer to experience the scene as if they are standing on the beach, cliff or mountainside.
