The arts scene in Roujan and region is well supported by the regional newspaper, Midi-Libre. Their local arts and events correspondent, Victor Morales, came to the GalleriMSF to interview me, with expert translation assistance by Jessie Jones, the gallery curator. The interview was a lively three-way discussion in two languages. The attached article captures the essence of the exposition and the travel journal workshop.
The piece was published in the Saturday paper, with my name in the headline displayed in a startlingly large font. As they say in the trade, “it’s better to be above the fold”.
As the newspaper web site is a curated blog, and doesn’t publish every article online, I include a pdf of the news item below for downloading for those who read French. Or want to try.
After Jessie departed, Victor and I continued our discussions – using hand gestures to overcome our linguistic barriers. Turns out he has vivid memories of bookbinding as a youth, and expressed great interest in my sketch of the Alexander woodshed at Sakinah Lake, wanting to know if it was a typical example of regional architecture!
I enjoyed interviewing the interviewer.
