I am pleased to be able to report that all is well with the Harwoods. In the spring of 2021, I closed my gallery and fine art services business, having enjoyed its pleasures and challenges for 43 years. This past January, the Baltimore Museum of Art hosted a celebratory event in honor of Melanie’s retirement and her 50th anniversary at the museum. Daughter Abby and her family live in Jersey City, New Jersey, a convenient commute for Abby, now in her 17th year in the fine jewelry business in Manhattan. Our son-in-law, having developed his own technology-based production company, manages/produces online streaming events. Granddaughter Aria, the very apple of our eye, is finishing first grade.
Last November Al Gundry, George Brown, Charlie Slaughter, Doug Mitchell, and I enjoyed having lunch with Les Rumsey who had come east to visit his sister in Annapolis.
