Kenneth Lochhead

I was reading Stuart McLean's ,Vinyl Cafe Notebooks yesterday, when I chanced upon his writings about the Gander Airport.  And, to Stuart's credit, he mentioned its amazing mural which was created by Kenneth Lochhead. Stuart writes that Lochhead used 500 dozen eggs to create the mural.

I asked the Google Geni, for information about Kenneth, and was surprised to turn up Stuart's entry with pictures he took, when he was in Gander for a show  I took the above picture from the website, but there are more and besides that I'm sure that  Stuart would love to have you check them out.  Please click here.

I tracked Kenneth down online and sent him an email. It was answered by his wife.  Regretably, Kenneth died a couple of years ago.  Look for another blog entry on this gifted artist.
