I did start the ‘let’s have an exhibition for Frank’s work’ by calling someone who worked at the National Museum and Te Papa for 50 years – Ross. We’d run into each other about 6 months ago and shared the enjoyment we both had of receiving Frank’s cards. So I figured since he’d retired he’d be a good person to start this off with me.
It was, therefore a shock to find that he is dying.
This then prompted more phone calls with people I had known about 20 years ago and at least 3 phone calls with Frank.
The exhibition is on hold, and I am sorry to hear that Ross is dying. He always had a twinkle in his eye.
