One more…
Profile by Sean McQuaid

After several successful seasons, A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline has become almost as much a part of the summer theatrical landscape as Anne of Green Gables. This will be its last season, though-and few will be sadder to see it end than comedian Wade Lynch, who has played opposite Marlane O'Brien's Patsy Cline throughout the run.

"It changed my life," Lynch says

Gaea Inspires the Artist
Profile by Sean McQuaid

The hills are alive-as are the plains, the valleys, the seas, the skies and all things that issue from them. At least, that's what Ambika Gail Rutherford's art seems to tell us. Her paintings and prints celebrate life and landscape, often through goddesses and spirits who embody various aspects of the natural world.

"I use a human image," Rutherford

Musician's Progress
Profile by Beth Johnston

A tape recorder and a guitar are two things Chris Corrigan has never been without. The soft-spoken Island musician has been listening to, playing and recording music for as long as he can remember.

"My earliest memory was the hype the Beatles created," he says. "My Dad played the guitar and I just got into it."

Corrigan grew up in the Edmonton suburbs

Life Through the Lens
Profile by Sean McQuaid

If a picture is worth a thousand words, Alex Murchison could fill a library by now. The Holland College photography instructor has spent his life behind the lens, and he's bringing that experience to the classroom.

Born in Charlottetown, PEI, Murchison studied English at Dalhousie but found it wasn't quite right for him. A friend suggested that he try

Burke, Brian

Life of Brian
Profile by Sean McQuaid

Brian Burke is a man who has found his niche. While his expressionist paintings hang in far-flung locations ranging from New York to San Francisco, the artist himself is comfortable hanging out in downtown Charlottetown-whenever he's not painting at his country home, that is. For Burke, the quiet life is picture-perfect.

An Islander by birth, Burke was always

Bernard, Paul

Classic Guitarist
Profile by Sean McQuaid

Paul Bernard's name has a certain resonance in Island music circles-especially among guitarists. He's been strumming his way into local lore for over two decades, and continues to explore new musical horizons today.

Bernard first felt the pull of the strings in his youth, when he began dabbling in guitar. Largely self-taught, Paul played pop songs in his

Multi-media Music Man
Profile by Sean McQuaid

Perry Williams is an honest-to-gosh dynamo: teacher, musician, computer video production artist and recording technician. I had a few thousand words with the balding, bespectacled viscount of versatility over coffee, and skimmed a cup of highlights for your literary refreshment: no cream, no sugar-just the facts.

A Beach Point native, Perry got his

Chairman of the Boards
Profile by Sean McQuaid

If you think Paul Whelan looks familiar, you're probably right. The silver-maned actor has been teaching school on the Island for decades, and he's in a class by himself as a respected fixture of the Island theatrical community.

A Charlottetown native, Whelan went to university, taught school in New Brunswick, returned to the Island and got married.
