Last week, my friend, Paula Wild, informed me that she would be retiring from the Record as the arts and entertainment columnist.
She has covered the arts and entertainment world in the Comox Valley for over 25 years. Her articles were meticulously researched and written, based on personal interviews in artists’ studios and first-hand analysis of visual and performance arts. I always looked forward to reading one of Paula’s reviews as I would learn so much about the art and the artist. I wish her continued success with her career as a writer, following upon the publication in 2013 of her award-winning book, The Cougar. I am sure that I join many others who will miss her significant contributions to the arts community and cultural vibrancy in the Comox Valley.
