All the Comforts of Home
Profile by Jane Ledwell

When I visited potter Malcolm Stanley in the wood-warm living room of his Dixon Road home, he served tea in mugs of his own making. Like much of his work, the mugs were substantial, functional, and surprisingly delicate to the eye and to the touch. The interview felt like an old-fashioned visit, and it's the warmth and ease of a visit that Malcolm

Man of the Word
Profile by Jane Ledwel

Joseph Sherman's newest book, American Standard and Other Poems, ends with a lie. The short biographical note that closes the collection says, "Joseph Sherman is a man of few words." Joe is not, in fact, known for reticence. Friends know him for amiable, occasionally cantankerous chatter marked by off-beat humour. And over many years, he put thousands of

Forever Writing
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Despite retirement and a relaxed demeanour, Michael Hennessey is hard at work. Off and on this past year, he has been revising the manuscript of a novel, his first attempt at a longer narrative after a writing career built on plays and short stories. As much as he loves the challenge of making revisions, the work is intense. "I can really work a lather up,"

Sylvester, John

Seeing What Develops
Profile by Jane Ledwell

John Sylvester is, he admits, "a bit of a perfectionist." While most of us were attempting to stay out of the snow this past long winter, John was taking advantage of a fresh, deeply snowbound perspective on the PEI landscape he has been seeing and photographing for the past eighteen years.

For one image for his new book, Island Light (being published

Binkley, Dawn

Unseen Hand
Profile by Jane Ledwell

You won't often see a photograph of professional stage manager Dawn Binkley. And when she's doing her job well-which she always does-you will see very little of her at all during the plays, concerts, and events where she works behind the scenes, making sure everything happens on cue, maintaining the "rhythm" that she says every show has and the "flow" that

Inclusive Arts

Profile by Jane Ledwell

Visual artist Karl MacKeeman believes that "everyone is potentially at some level an artist or a craftsman." With his inclusive sense of art, he has set up workshops and mentoring opportunities in painting and printmaking that have welcomed artists at every level of development. He has also had a leading role in a life drawing group that has included over 60

A Sequence of Events
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Campbell Webster promises "Two things about the ECMAs . . .", but when the Chair of ECMA 2001 promises to tell you "two things," expect five. One thing leads to another for this Charlottetown communicator, promoter, writer, producer, idea-pitcher, play-director, talent manager, and coffee hawker.

"If nothing else, the ECMAs have been responsible for

New Day, New Dawn, New Director
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Jon Tupper, the recently appointed, soon-to-arrive director of the Confederation Centre Art Gallery and Museum, must have heard rumours about how we Islanders welcome come-from-aways, because he's quick to establish his credentials as an Islander. "I lived there as a kid," he says, from Banff, where he currently runs the Walter Phillips
