Not about me… by george

Here is some information I want to share.  These days there is never enough time to be a caring human being. There is never enough time to do what has to be done. Not to mention that there is never enough money to find the time.  Somebody said the immortal words: “Just do it.”,  so I am having a cup of tea and  Doing it. 
First I bring you writing by a woman of consequence with whom I have lived for 54 years.  : http://www.elainezimbel.com/a-woman-of-no-consequence-by-whose-measure

Then I want to refer you to an extraordinary exhibition here in Montreal  by the unrepentant photographer/artist Robert Walker : Mediascapes/February 6 to 28 at  McClure Gallery of the Visual Arts Centre, Westmount Quebec.

An finally  to another unrepentant artist who was born too soon to be a photographer,  Kees van Dongen (1877)  but knew the streets better than many of us veteran Photo Leaguers.  He used his paints and   charcoal to get  into  our heads. If you can possibly visit the  Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, check out the  Kees van Dongen  exhibition, the first major retrospective of the art of  van Dongen : Painting the City Fauve.  January 22 to April 19, 2009 .
