Many thanks for Harold Henderson's January 6 cover story on artist Bob Guinan. The writing and pictures were worthy of Bob's estimable, and lamentably underacknowledged, contribution to "the art scene"--a phrase and a concept that would make him wince. Sensitively captured in the story are the blend of warmth and gentle cynicism that make him a welcome frequenter of the common table at the Cliff Dwellers.

Bob Guinan may genuinely not care very much when or whether he gets the recognition he deserves. A lot of people who like him and respect his work hope that it will happen sooner than later.
