And the Tide Turns

And the Tide Turns

October 17, 2017

I’ve been hunkered down and quiet the last while, for a number of reasons. Travel – back west and then back east – for the AGM of Visual Arts Alberta – CARFAC, and for a memorial service in Calgary. Work – finishing up some experiments in cyanotype (!), and writing a grant report. Taking a […]

Lovely food too – thanks to Judith at Main & Station! I was quite struck with the reaction of people to the show: several guests stayed for a long time, […]
