Patricia Graham Eulogy

Greetings Members of Basic Inquiry

My late wife Patricia Graham Arrott drew for many years at Basic Inquiry, from the beginning I think. I am trying to remember before the Cobalt Hotel, where I know that I provided Jerry the blinds for the large west facing window from 1985 to 1987. After that Basic Inquiry moved to the building opposite Manard's on 6th Ave. My memory at 88 is not all that sharp. I do not remember Jerry's last name. I looked for some history on the Basic Inquiry Web site but did not find any. One of Patsy's favorite models was Peter ?? an Englishman with a bicycle. Peter was into performance art at the fringe festivals. I am planning to curate a show of Patricia's works next February in Seattle. Some history would be helpful.

Thanks for any help you can give me,
Tony Arrott

You may have noted in October 26, 2015 minutes reference was made to a September 29, 2015 video shoot at the studio by Spotlight Productions Ltd., a company under contract to provide video productions for the Telus Community Channel. Melinda Friedman the director has provided us with the links to the final product on both U Tube and Facebook. Please feel free to take a gander as it is a well done production featuring one of our outstanding models Francoise Thibault.
