What Goes On My Refrigerator Now?

The September/October 2010 printed Clyde schedule was the last of its kind. After 38 years of beautiful, comical, nonsensical, and just plain bizarre illustrations by local artists, The Clyde calendar became a thing of the past, made obsolete by changes in the way movies are distributed, booked, and advertised.
I have a copy of every calendar since Blake bought the theater in February of 1972. In the years since then, the refrigerators of South Whidbey have been enlivened by the art of Karran West, Ed Nordin, Bob Sabatini, Gretchen Pedersen, Willy Maschmeier, Deon Matzen, Buffy Morrow, Janie Cribbs, Ro Purser, Briony Cribbs-Morrow, Bruce Morrow, Anne Belov, Christine Nyburg, Kim Kelzer, Mike Boyd, Scot Gaznier, Scott Freutel, Pamela Jacques, Frank Jacques, Julie Hougum, Tim Leonard, Denis Zimmerman, James Wills, Audrey Bishop, and the late Lee Wexler. I even did the schedule art once, as did Brook at age 7 (an illustration for Top Gun). I’d like to find a place to display them all, but haven’t found a big enough spot at The Clyde yet.
