Default Re: artist Ken Danby has died-he painted portrait of Lightfoot

I'm sorry to say I was unaware of him other than the Lightfoot stuff (and particularly since I've owned a copy of At The Crease for years.. (just because I liked it so much immediately the first time I saw it))..

“The arts are just as important as math and science in education, and just as important as any other endeavour in our lives,” he said. “Art is a necessity. Art is an absolutely essential part of our enlightenment process. We cannot, as a species, as a civilized society, regard ourselves as being enlightened without the arts.”

Amen my friend..
