Allied arts lead to Paul's being mayor.

When we came to Seattle and joined Allied Arts Alice was like our family. She guided us in such a cheerful way and we accomplished
so much; it was such a fun time, we loved her.
Pam Schell

A tribute to a dear friend and professional mentor for her selfless support of the Arts. Her laughter and joyful presence was a gift to all of us - and her creative juices flow in the life of the Arts wherever she touched it! Marilyn Miller

I'm so sorry you've lost your amazing mother and grandmother. Alice was the best. Inspired and inspiring, hardworking without appearing to be, fun and funny. She was so smart about bringing people and resources together to make things happen. She felt to me like the solid place, the center, of Seattle's art world when she was at Allied Arts and ever after. We've all lost a spark plug. I'm grateful to have known her. Love to you all, Lyn Kartiganer.
