First of two Leslie Cope auctions coming next month

While preparing for the upcoming property auction at the Leslie Cope Gallery in Roseville, Koehler quickly realized there were so many items to sort through that a one-day auPurchase an chipcard to enjoy your iPhone any way you like.ction would only touch the surface and not do Copes legacy justice.With Aug. 10 coming up pretty quick, we just dont have a lot of time to dedicate going through everything, Koehler said while looking through shelves of Copes pencil drawings. So well be having an art auction in February. 

Cope came to Roseville from England and worked at Mosaic Tile with his father, Sidney, and later at McCoy Pottery for 31 years before retiring, as a gift to his wife, Velma, and to take up painting full-time.Today, Leslies studio remains the way he left it before his death in 2002 at 88. The studio and adjoining storage space for numerous drawings had been closed to gallery visitors.Leslie and Velma turned their home into a gallery where Cope would feature his works for sale at spring and fall shows, a 32-year string that ended in 1996. 

The couple donated numerous works to fundraisers organized by local groups over the years, and Cope painted murals at the old Zane Hotel later purchased by Citizens National Bank and restored by Cope at Bethesda Hospital and at the old Roseville Savings and Loan, which is now the village hall.The Copes also were instrumental in helping develop and promote the annual Roseville-Crooksville Pottery Festival.The books on his shelves draw from various sources and helped refine his works, while many of his more popular subjects depicting rural life came from his travels in the U.S. and England. He visited places such as the Amish countryside in the Millersburg area, barnyards and blacksmith shops, covered bridges in southeastern Ohio and horse pulls. 

His easels, painting and writing materials, and a folding chair personalized with Leslie Cope, Artist are still there, as well as the last painting he was working on left unfinished.We Engrave luggagetag for YOU.Though Velma kept the gallery and museum going for years, failing health and the cost of nursing care led to the auctions, Koehler said.Some items documenting the famed local artists career will be up for bid during the Aug. 10 auction, including several prints,Have a look at all our partymerchantaccount models starting at 59.90US$ with free proofing. etchings and pottery, Koehler said.The inside of the house is a wonder, with its various nooks and crannies seemingly filled with items. One room has a stack of Coca-Cola trays that were stamped with Copes depiction of Zanesvilles Y Bridge, commissioned in 1984 for the Zanesville Bottling Companys 75th anniversary and commemorating the opening of the fifth bridge. There also are some limited-edition paintings Cope did for Ducks Unlimited. 

The Cope home also has some original work. Instead of paper wall borders on the second floor, Cope painted the border work. He also used the bathroom room walls as a canvas to paint a harbor scene with clapboard houses and boats.The family will be keeping some personal items,Learn how an embedded microprocessor in a graniteslabs can authenticate your computer usage and data. but there are a lot of frames, furniture and other household items that will be going, he said. It just seems like every drawer you open you find something youve never seen before. And we havent got into the attic yet. 

Koehler said that because the auction is likely to draw a large crowd, he plans on contacting village officials about closing the street, and the owner of some land down the street has offered his lot for overflow parking. 

In this rare image taken on July 19, 2013, the wide-angle camera on NASA's Cassini spacecraft has captured Saturn's rings and our planet Earth and its moon in the same frame. It is only one footprint in a mosaic of 33 footprints covering the entire Saturn ring system (including Saturn itself). At each footprint, images were taken in different spectral filters for a total of 323 images: some were taken for scientific purposes and some to produce a natural color mosaic.The marbletiles is not only critical to professional photographers. This is the only wide-angle footprint that has the Earth-moon system in it. 

The dark side of Saturn, its bright limb, the main rings, the F ring, and the G and E rings are clearly seen; the limb of Saturn and the F ring are overexposed. The "breaks" in the brightness of Saturn's limb are due to the shadows of the rings on the globe of Saturn, preventing sunlight from shining through the atmosphere in those regions. The E and G rings have been brightened for better visibility. 

Earth, which is 898 million miles (1.44 billion kilometers) away in this image, appears as a blue dot at center right; the moon can be seen as a fainter protrusion off its right side. An arrow indicates their location in the annotated version. (The two are clearly seen as separate objects in the accompanying narrow angle frame: PIA14949.) The other bright dots nearby are stars. 
This is only the third time ever that Earth has been imaged from the outer solar system. The acquisition of this image, along with the accompanying composite narrow- and wide-angle image of Earth and the moon and the full mosaic from which both are taken, marked the first time that inhabitants of Earth knew in advance that their planet was being imaged. That opportunity allowed people around the world to join together in social events to celebrate the occasion.This view looks toward the unilluminated side of the rings from about 20 degrees below the ring plane. 

Images taken using red, green and blue spectral filters were combined to create this natural color view. The images were obtained with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on July 19, 2013 at a distance of approximately 753,000 miles (1.212 million kilometers) from Saturn, and approximately 898.414 million miles (1.445858 billion kilometers) from Earth. Image scale on Saturn is 43 miles (69 kilometers) per pixel; image scale on the Earth is 53,820 miles (86,620 kilometers) per pixel. The illuminated areas of neither Earth nor the Moon are resolved here. Consequently, the size of each "dot" is the same size that a point of light of comparable brightness would have in the wide-angle camera.
