How to attend an art opening in Chelsea, New York

Fun!

You will be forgiven for confusing an art opening in New York’s gallery district of Chelsea with a nightclub. When I whipped down to Manhattan for two days to attend the opening of an exhibition of paintings by my late father, William Perehudoff at BERRY CAMPBELL gallery, I entered a strange and wild scene made […]

What to do in Saint John New Brunswick

Why so glum?

Obviously the main thing to do in Saint John, New Brunswick, is to eat lobster, although scallops go down well, too. Once you’ve eaten lobster rolls for breakfast, lunch and dinner, you’ll obviously want to look at the water since the Maritime city of Saint John, population 120,000, is considered the Gateway to the Bay […]

The art of William Perehudoff in Montreal Exciting! My sisters and I have swooped into Montreal for our father’s tribute exhibition tonight at Han Art in swanky Westmount.

William Perehudoff – the show must go on

Back then my father was still enjoying hot fudge sundaes from the Dairy Queen and […]

Mourning in Saskatchewan

Snow painting by Catherine Perehudoff

I miss many things about Saskatchewan, some that are not even gone. I still miss the old Capitol Theatre in Saskatoon, the interior reminded me of Romeo and Juliet, and it was part of my childhood. Torn down for a mall. I miss my father, William Perehudoff, an artist, who of course was part of […]

William Perehudoff - portrait of an artist as a young man

  It’s not easy dealing with the death of a loved one, and this is the loss of a much adored father. It doesn’t matter expected it might be, you’re never prepared. It’s always a shock, as if a volcano suddenly erupted in your backyard when you were expecting, perhaps, a small bonfire. But there […]

Sightseeing in Florence

Resident Florentine man

You might, in fact, think they never move. […]
