CORRECTION The pictures that accompa- nied "Plein air artist to open show at gallery in Quincy" (page 15B, Aug. 18) were in- correctly attributed to Rocki Eriksen. Erik Weber took the photo of artist Sally Yost, and Yost herself took the photo of her painting of a Slovenian field worker. Eriksen, however, did pen the story "Artist documents people, places -- makes the ordinary extraordinary" about photographer Weber in the July 28 issue.
