The Portland Art Dealers
has announced its inaugural recipient of its Award for Service
to the Visual Arts, Julie Bernard.
Julie has been a fixture in the arts community supporting various arts organizations
and with her radio program Art Focus
, which she hosted for a staggering 25 years, (it continues on with other hosts). Frankly,
I can't even remember how many times Ive been on it but the half hour show was
always a blast, focusing on local and national art figures alike. She has a subtle
wry wit and knew how to push peoples buttons. Bernard stepped down in 2008 and
it is wonderful that PADA is acknowledging her contributions.
