When Mel Garbark passed away last year there were 90 completed works of art remaining in his studio. Thanks to his daughter Gale Dillon, the representative for his estate, these are being offered through the Icehouse.

We had the opportunity to pay tribute to this internationally-recognized wildlife artist at a reception on May 5.
