In August 2001, Sherron Watkins alerted then-CEO Ken Lay that Enron "might implode in a wave of accounting scandals."

In the wake of Enron's meltdown, Watkins testified before Congressional Committees from the House and Senate investigating the company's demise and was lauded in the press for her courageous actions. In recognition of her outstanding demonstration of ethic in the work place, Watkins has received numerous honors. TIME magazine named Watkins, along with two others, as their 2002 Persons of the Year, for being "people who did right just by doing their jobs rightly" and "for believing.... that the truth is one thing that must not be moved off the books..." Barbara Walters included her as one of the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2002.

"She-roes," Works by Betti Pettinati-Longinotti from Feb 09, 2012 08:30 AM to Mar 16, 2012 05:00 PM Mary Davis Holt Gallery, Salem Fine Arts Center,
Joint Reception: February 10, 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. (Brian Kiger and Betti Pettinati-Longinotti exhibits) Embracing the mission of the Guerilla Girls, a feminist art group fighting for the rights of women artists, past and present, this work seeks to celebrate the contributions of these “she-roes.” This exhibit explores mediums from paintings with oils to compositions in glass. Maternal metanarratives also pay tribute to this neglected “other-half.” The show runs through March 16. Gallery hours are 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday and 1-5 p.m., Saturday-Sunday.
Exhibit: Under Pressure: Impressions by Brian Kiger from Feb 09, 2012 08:30 AM to Mar 16, 2012 05:00 PM North Corridor Gallery, Salem Fine Arts Center,
Joint Reception: February 10, 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. (Brian Kiger and Betti Pettinati-Longinotti exhibits) In response to our ever-increasing digital culture, Kiger has focused on production techniques consisting of hand printed materials such as lithographic and relief printed posters, books, and other ephemera as a vehicle for artistic expression. Graphic works such as these, by their very nature, serve critical roles in visual communication. The unique form and aesthetic of these prints creates a new element of communication that is powerful beyond the declaration of the written word. The process itself communicates a narrative that describes the unique aspect of production. Concern for the craft of printing itself, as well as the attention to detail that is necessary to create handmade prints, are all evident in the final pieces. Exhibit hours are 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday - Friday and 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
