Have you ever walked past an old deserted building or a discarded
piece of machinery and thought, "If this place could talk,
I bet it would have some stories to tell"? We not only
yearn to hear those stories, we have the feeling that, in them,
there may be something important for us . . . for our children.
The art of Charles Peterson brings those stories to life, stirring
memories and emothions we had forgotten were there.
Of Time and Place is a book of art featuring paintings
by one of the most accomplished and most popular artists of
our time. It is a book of stories; stories that read differently
for each of us based on where we are and where we have been.
And, through it all, Of Time and Place is the profile
of a most uncommon common man who has touched a generation through
his life's work.
