"I needed a drink, I needed a lot of life insurance, I needed a vacation, I needed a home in the country. What I had was a coat, a hat and a gun.” Raymond Chandler — Farewell, My Lovely

NOIR – The Sordid Chronicles of Shady Characters                       With Michael deMeng
February 10-16, 2019

As long as I can remember I’ve been a film buff. In particular, I was a huge fan of detective stories…gritty…grimy…and seedy. Film noir was my genre where characters like Sam Spade and Phillip Marlow packed the heat and battled a variety of nefarious naughties in the wet shadow laden streets. No one’s pure in this world…even the so-called heroes are jaded souls whose soft-spots have been calloused over by decades of betrayal. It dawned on me that perhaps since I love this genre so much…why not create a workshop as an homage?
