Hello My Friends,
What a happy coincidence - Father's Day and the first day of summer (scheduled to be 90 degrees today
in Basalt!). My father, who every summer gave a talk "The Philosophy of the Green World," would be
so happy to see, on this first day of summer, how lush and green our world is thanks to the abundant
rains of April and May. As for Father's Day - well every day is father's day for me - creative, charismatic, o
mnipresent chap that he was.
As we roar into summer, I want first to assure everyone that I am finally back to fighting fitness - a
couple of new joints (replaced without the aid of the smokeable kind) and some time away with
relatives, friends and two big city fixes (D.C. where I went to university back in the burn your bra days of the
late 1960's and NYC).
What's new at the Gallery? Silver Queen Minerals, a business that shares a corner of the Gallery and is
owned by my sister-in-law, and Toklat are teaming up to have a series of Wednesday evening programs
at the gallery on the mining and minerals of Colorado. Below are details of the first two and after that a
brief description of the remaining seven.
