Join us for a fascinating documentary showcasing the lives of Paul and Erika Bourguignon, an extraordinary groundbreaking couple. Paul was a talented visual artist, a prolific writer and journalist, a skillful photographer and an avid observer of the human condition. His paintings are in museums and collections throughout the world. Erika was an Anthropology professor and department chair at The Ohio State University. She was considered the foremost anthropological authority on trance, possession and altered states of consciousness. Jane Hoffelt, Trustee of the Bourguignon Charitable Trust, will answer questions after the presentation.

Jane Hoffelt earned a degree in illustration from Columbus College of Art and Design in 1977. After serving as art director at several ad agencies and Columbus Monthly Magazine, she managed departments at Zaner-Bloser and McGraw-Hill. She also taught classes at Columbus College of Art and Design and operated her own graphic design business. After retiring from publishing, she became the sole trustee for the Erika Bourguignon Charitable Trust, responsible for marketing and selling paintings of the artist Paul-Henri Bourguignon. She curated (alone or with Erika Bourguignon, who died in 2015) 40 separate solo Bourguignon exhibitions in more than a dozen different galleries and museums, including at the Columbus Museum of Art, Richard M. Ross Museum of Art, and Springfield Museum of Art.
