I'd forgotten, but the past caught up with me.
A couple of months or so ago, I decided to join the Women's Art Association of Canada (a venerable institution founded in the late 1800s) to get out of the shell I was
Author Iris Nowell is presenting her latest book (on Canadian artist Harold Town) at the
Women's Art Assoc. of Canada on Thursday. We live in the same building
and I have known her for years.
Last week I received a notice from WAAC about the presentation. Days
later, I bumped into Iris in the elevator. She told me about the
book. I told her that I had interviewed Harold Town years ago for a magazine cover story; after the interview he had also allowed me to photograph him in black and white in his backyard. In those days, photography was my art.
Iris tells me she's using
the cover photo from the magazine article in her presentation. I tell her that I wrote that article (Putting on the Style). She suggests I
say a word or two about that at her presentation, maybe, perhaps........ I laugh. Who knows. At the very least, I will be there and assisting her in any way I can.
