As I’ve interviewed the artists of the Art Gallery of Northumberland Spotlight Series, I’ve learned a lot. Not surprisingly: after all, these are six excellent artists, and I hadn’t known all of them before.
What’s maybe a bit more surprising is how much I learned interviewing Kate Hessin. I knew her work pretty well, but we’ve never sat and talked about it in a lot of depth. That’s despite (or maybe because of?) the fact that I’m her brother-in-law!
Kate’s confidence, poise, and willing self-reflection made the conversation a pleasure–and a fitting finale to my radio interviews with Spotlight Series artists.
