Next, journalist and playwright Joan Sullivan explores through interviews with former students the environment created at the Newfoundland Academy of Art at 51 Cochrane Street. Lisa Moore, a fiction writer who also possesses a degree in visual art from NSCAD, follows with an investigation of the portrait as an art form and Helen Parsons Shepherd’s career as a portraitist. The volume concludes withan essay on early printmaking in Newfoundland and Reginald Shepherd’s work in this medium by Anne Pratt, who has had considerable experience as an ar t journalist and critic. These essays constitute approximately half the volume, the remainder consisting of illustrations from the work of both artists.” - from the dj.
