Enda Kenny, Patti Smith and Carlotta Hester

by Chris Murray on September 24, 2017

It was a great pleasure this past July 4th to meet our friend Enda Kenny, Ireland’s Prime Minister from 2011 to 2017, at his private office in the Government Buildings in Dublin. I presented him with a copy of Patti Smith: American Artist, the book I edited featuring Frank Stefanko’s beautiful photographs of the Irish American poet, musician, photographer and author. Enda Kenny is a great advocate of the arts, and could not have been more gracious.

This past weekend Carlotta Hester’s drawings of traditional Irish musicians from her series The Pure Drop were featured at photographer, musician and teacher Bill Crandall’s Viaduct salon in Takoma Park, Maryland. It was a great evening that also featured a concert by songwriter and guitarist Zachary Parkman.
