Recently our local museum and arts council, here on Gabriola, teamed together to create a display that honours the artists of Gabriola. And by this I mean ALL artists…singers, dancers, actors, writers, painters, sculptors – you name it! Gabriola is not called The Isle of the Arts for nothin’! There is an incredible concentration of creative people on this little rock.
As you may have surmised, the cast of TRT are some pretty artsy folks. We are actors, we are musicians and we are visual artists as well. And so…David and I (Kathy) went down to the museum to see this new display installation that focused on all of the fantastic artists of Gabriola Island. Truth be told I wanted to see the picture of me with fruit on my head that I knew would be in the slide show. (But that is a whole other story.)
Well imagine our wonderment and surprise as we turned the first corner and found this:
Our old-time-radio theatre troupe being celebrated among all of Gabriola’s most accomplished actors! I started to blush and my falsetto took over. “Look, David! Look!” Oh my goodness…my delight was palpable. I suddenly felt quite shy and humble – two words seldom associated with yours truly, let me tell ya.
Wow! Thank you to our beloved community for this stunning esteem. We are so grateful to be supported and nourished by such a talented group of neighbours and friends!
