I met the Ackermans only once while working on an article about them for the Ojai Quarterly. Through an unusual coincidence it was discovered that Evelyn had designed the Signs of the Zodiac door panels at Meditation Mount in Ojai. I was invited to attend an opening for a show of their work at the Craft & Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles in 2011. I appreciate having had the opportunity to meet this creative duo, but wish I had been able to get to know them better. Evelyn and her work will be long remembered.
To read more about Evelyn and her husband Jerry go to my Ojai Quarterly article posted on this website. Also there is a lovely tribute to Evelyn in the Los Angeles Times. Los Angeles Time Article by David Keeps
