Marc Goldring’s insightful “look back” on his decades of working in the cultural sector is characteristic of the wisdom he always has brought to his consulting work — first for the fledgling Wolf Organization, then, after a merger, with Wolf, Keens & Company, and more recently in the expanded consulting firm of WolfBrown. Marc’s perspective — that of someone who had been a full-time working visual artist and one who knew of the struggles that such professionals face — had been very different from my own. My background had been in music, and I had worked comfortably within established arts institutions. He knew the solitude and uncertainty of having to make a working life in the arts by himself. And perhaps that is why we got on so well once we became colleagues. Each of us brought something to the working relationship that was more than the sum of its parts. Marc’s commitment to the arts has never wavered since, nor has his love of making art. Today he is a recognized photographer (take a look at some of his work at his website), and he continues to spend hours each week working on behalf of the artist community. So while we will miss him as one of our senior consultants at WolfBrown, we know Marc will continue to serve the field we both love and make the world a more beautiful place.
