Housedeer Issue Number Three
This is the cover of Housedeer Issue No. 3, devoted to the painter Louise Oliver through interviews done with her son and daughter, Edgar and Helen. The cover image is a drawing made for this issue by Regina Bartkoff, called Edgar, Louise and Helen. Last autumn, Edgar Oliver staged a one-man show at Theater 80 on St. Marks Place in New York called Helen & Edgar. In it, he told many stories about Louise Oliver and the childhood years he and Helen spent with her in Savannah. The show earned a stellar review from Ben Brantley of the New York Times: http://theater.nytimes.com/2012/10/13/theater/reviews/helen-edgar-edgar-olivers-solo-show-at-theater-80.html
This issue of Housedeer makes a wonderful compliment to that show for anyone who got to see it, but it also stands alone as a tribute to a truly exceptional woman who lived for her art and for her children.
