Mr. Ivan C. Karp, OK Harris Gallery, New York City
I was contacted by telephone by Mr. Ivan Karp. It was in response to slides I had sent in for him to review. He congratulated me, was very enthusiastic and gave me some very very very positive remarks about my art work. He explained to me how to get started in New York Galleries. I heard of his passing some time ago. He spent hours going over artists works and was a friend to so very many and myself. Mr. Karp helped artist Andy Warhol, and Robert Rauschenberg and others. My many, many, many, thanks to the very kind, Mr. Ivan Karp.
