Photo by Tara Nelson, one of the really sharp minds in journalism these days. Tara took this photo -- of me -- at the Fishtown Revival and Clambake down in Seattle last night. The survivors, aging artists who once built alder wood fires, huddling over darkened stoves, in small cabins out on the Skagit River, gathered once more to drink a toast to the glorious past of "never was."
It never happened -- those moonlit nights, quiet paddling canoes, and the song of birds. Fishtown was only a dream.
The exhibit of the Fishtown artists, including work by Robert Sund, Charlie Krafft, Bill Slater and several others, is at Kobo in the Higo Gallery in the International District.
