Anna Pauly is a photographer in Springfield, Illinois, specializing in senior portraits, families, and children.

She has always had a passion for creating: whether it be photographs, paintings, drawings, or with the written word. When she discovered photography, though, it was love at first sight.

She first learned the art of photography over 20 years ago in a dark room, rolling her own film, developing, and printing the old-fashioned way. While her process has evolved out of the smelly darkroom, her passion and love for the art has remained the same. She loves capturing the beauty of a moment and preserving it forever. It is a great honor to be able to provide this service to others.

Dana Thomas House Foundation & Sumac Shop

The Dana-Thomas House (DTH) was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1902 for Susan Lawrence Dana, a forward-thinking socialite living in Springfield, Illinois. The home, the 72nd building designed by Wright, contains the largest collection of site-specific, original Wright art glass and furniture. Wright’s first “blank check” commission, the home has 35 rooms in the 12,000 square feet of living space which includes 3 main levels and 16 varying levels in all.

Rightfully regarded as a local treasure, the DTH is a gorgeous house museum. Following its acquisition of the House, the Illinois State Historic Preservation Agency undertook a major restoration project. The results yielded a beautifully preserved example of Mr. Wright’s genius.

Beyond the essence of an architectural masterpiece of international significance, the house is a brilliant showcase of craftsmanship in glass doors, windows and light fixtures; terra cotta sculpture and an exquisite mural; it is the best preserved and most complete of Frank Lloyd Wright’s early “Prairie” houses.

This weekend the Hoogland Center presents the drama “A Raisin in the Sun”. Nominated for four Tony Awards when it was originally staged in 1960, “A Raisin in the Sun” is a monumental piece of American theater that explores generational differences, race and gender roles, and the importance of morality. The characters are believable and heartbreaking, well-realized human beings, and their struggles against prejudice and hardship are as meaningful now as they were decades ago. Performances are in Theatre III with general admission seating on Nov. 11-13. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday performances are at 4:00 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults, and $16 for seniors over 60 and students.

Showing this November, “Crimes of the Heart” is a delightful, dark comedy presented by the Springfield Theatre Centre which follows three sisters who struggle with each of their own personal situations. Lenny, the oldest sister, is thirty and unmarried; Meg, the middle sister, is struggling with a failed singing career; and Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband. Their troubles, grave and yet somehow hilarious, are highlighted by their self-righteous cousin and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless not to fall in love with her. Can these sisters escape the past to seize the future? Find out at “Crimes of the Heart”. The show runs Nov. 11 – 14 and 18 – 20 in the LRS Theatre. Friday and Saturday performances are at 8:00 p.m., and Sunday performances are at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults, and $16 for seniors over 60 and children under 12.
