THE CHAT
by Alejandro Saralegui
Director, The Madoo Conservancy


It is with a tinge of sadness that I write this letter. As you most probably know, Bob Dash passed away this year on September 15th. Many remarked it was the end of an era, others asked what would happen to the garden? I find my response to both comments intertwined. It is the start of a new era here and the garden that Bob created will reach even greater heights as we continue in his spirit keeping Madoo vibrant, relevant and vital. A special thanks to all of you! Over the years so many of you have given generously to Madoo in support of the triumph that is Bob's Madoo. Please continue! The garden needs everyone's help. There is much to do as Bob always said.

Robert Dash at the Parrish Museum
To celebrate their one year anniversary at the new Water Mill location the Parrish Museum of Art has re-installed their permanent collection. Included in this exhibition is a promised gift of three paintings from the Estate of Robert Dash. They are hung in a gallery with works by Bob's longtime friend Fairfield Porter. Afternoon #2, 1963, painted in Porter's Southampton house is shown above hung between two works by Porter. We are honored to have Bob's paintings so beautifully exhibited at the Parrish.
