Good Old Jim Leedy


Had lunch today with the indomitable Jim Leedy, founder of the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center, retired instructor from KCAI, Grandfather of the Crossroads, ceramist and abstract expressionist par excellence.  We ate in the River Market, at a quiet little Indian joint.  There is no other like Jim, and none who could ever replace him.  KC has been very fortunate that he chose to stay here all these years.


There are a lot of great stories to tell about Jim, de Kooning, and Peter Voulkos (Leedy’s business partner before he passed).  But I’ll have to tell those later.  Miles to go before I sleep tonight.
