Joyous! Jubilant! Bouyant! Alive! These are words that come to mind when I try to describe seeing an entire room filled with the artwork of the late Lester Goldman. Luckily, I took my daughter with me so that I had someone with whom to share the experience. There was nothing dark or angry or ugly in any of it. My heartfelt thanks to Mrs. Goldman and her children for sharing this prolific output with us. From my observations this was a happy, happy man.
Editor’s note: The exhibition at 1619 Walnut has been extended through February. For appointments or information, call Kathrin Goldman, 816-444-9074.
