Art Beyond Life Expectancy

Ron Richards and David ShuteroffOctogenarians

Besides being old guys who pursued and completed teaching careers, both also pursued creative lives, one in the field of fine art and the other in the fields of industrial and design art. Both love making their art. One would make too few dollars to sustain life based on an art tradition of doing something that had not yet been done. The other, also doing strong and highly individualist work, has found access to additional dollars and the pride of making something people treasure and find useful. While they are very different in methods of pursuit with their art, they both believe the pursuit of a trout or a bass to be a solid achievement. Dave, of course, owns the boat.
