A personal friend and a great teacher for art and printmaking has passed away. There will be many memories that stick with all of us from good times through tough times. Richard Duardo was a mentor to many of us and always supported the arts in any way he could. He will be missed. Farewell buddy, you’ll live on through the work we create that would have never been a part of our lives if it wasn’t for for you. You were a great man, a great friend and a true gatherer of people. Many of my close friends now were ones that I was first introduced to in one way or another at Modern Multiples.
This photo of Richard Duardo was from the Carlos Almaraz “Night Theatre” production at Modern Multiples in early 2010.
