This is Carla writing to you. We met in Nelson last March. I am the
one who gave you the large black and white photograph of Richard. I
had meant to call you but alas, with the time differences between our
regions and me only being free in the evenings, I never got around to
it not wanting to wake you up. But now I have your e-mail address!
I just checked into the memorial site and wanted to connect with you
about my proposed Imhotep art show for the Spring or early Summer.
I have been away most of the Summer. Imhotep comes to mind often and
I feel that he is still with me in a way but I also feel very sad.
As for the art show, here is where I am at: No one in Nelson has
responded to my earlier call for submissions to the show or
volunteered to help. Now that Fall is around the corner, I intend to
start calling people to track down some artwork to put into the
show. I will also need a gallery space and people to help with
publicizing the show, hanging it, gallery sitting, coming to the
opening and other details I am sure. All this will also cost money
although I want to keep the budget low. I have some negatives of
Imhotep's(pictures that he took), that were in cousin Colleen's
garage. He was also a gifted photographer and I want to print some of
his photos in large format for the show. Roland has agreed to scan
the negs and do the work, however the cost of printing is expensive.
I thought maybe we could apply for money from the Nelson arts council
so I will check that avenue although we might be a bit late to do
that. Well it does sound discouraging but I intend to put another
blast of energy into phoning people and going down to Nelson to
shmooz and search out a venue for the show. ( I live a couple of
hours drive away from Nelson up the Slocan Valley).
Colleen mentioned that you may want to come out here for the show.
Also you probably have most of his art work. Would you be willing to
lend some out? We would have to figure out which pieces and how to
get them out here. Lilith also said that she wants to come out for
That is all I have to report for now. Having your support for the
show will help, i believe, in getting others on board. Please write
me back via this site and/or via direct e-mail.
Blessings to you and your family,
