Over a few days in the heat of the summer of 2012, my friend Tom and I put a new metal roof on the studio. A wind storm some weeks before had 'removed' a large section of the asphalt roofing. Who knows where it went - never did find more than a few pieces.
At the celebration of the Grand Forks
Art Gallery's 25th Anniversary on June 13, 2009, Beverley and
I were totally surprised and astonished, when a presentation
was made naming the main gallery in the new premises, the Richard
and Beverley Reid Gallery.
For several months in 2008, I
was actively engaged with a GFAG board committee, city planners
and the architects in the design and development of the new premises
for the Grand Forks Art Gallery. The city has done an excellent
renovation to this substantial and well maintained historic 1911
August, 2006. I spent about two weeks in Wells, BC at the Island Mountain Arts Summer School of the Arts. Its always a pleasure to work among a group of enthusiastic artists. I had never visited the Wells/Barkerville area before. After a slow start in new surroundings, I did manage to get several new paintings underway, and have been continuing since my return.
