WASM newsletter or January 24, 2022

An important note from Leslie, daughter of Barbara Fox:

Leslie writes: I am very pleased with the way the day went for Mother’s Celebration of Life! Thank you (WASM) for helping me get the word out. There was however one mishap; two booklets of my mother’s art are missing. I ask you kindly to help me reach out to some the WASM members to see if someone inadvertently picked them up. They weren’t for the taking (they are the only copies) so I would appreciate having them back. Kind Regards, Leslie lesliefox_2000@yahoo.com

Art News and Exhibits

Peter Doig, experienced painter of Scottish origin born in Edinburgh in 1959, is currently considered one of the best painters of his generation, his works commanding extraordinarily high prices. In his early childhood he moved with his family to Trinidad and Tobago, and in 1966 to Canada. 13 years later, in 1979, he took up residency in United Kingdom, where he began his studies at the Wimbledon School of Art and then went on to study at the Saint Martin's School of Art before obtaining an MA at the Chelsea School of Art.
