Had a very enjoyable time yesterday afternoon as the guest of radio talk show host Ed Hoffman on "Speaking of Art", WAAM Talk Radio 1600, Ann Arbor, MI. What a treat! Ed is a real pro---and extremely knowledgeable and engaging. He loved Helen LaFrance's work, the book Helen LaFrance Folk Art Memories, and the photographs of her work. At the bottom of the hour, I asked Bruce Shelton to join us and he told how he first learned of Helen in 1991 and high-tailed it to Kentucky to see her, plus he offered his thoughts on the current antiques market. Can't believe we chatted for a full hour. It felt like a re-run of my being a guest on Martha Stewart's television show.......it was so much fun and the time flew by.
I will be book signing at the Ann Arbor Antiques Market April 14-15 at Mad Anthony Books and the Shelton Gallery booth will have work by Helen LaFrance for sale.
