  • Fire and Jorge Cruxent, c. 1974

A Late Memorium

272 words

I’ve belatedly learned that my friend Fire Cruxent (born Estelle Norville, Jr.) passed away in 2008, after a losing battle with lung cancer. I first met Fire at the Two Bell’s Tavern in Belltown, Seattle, in the early 1990s. She was striking to look at, and very demonstrative. Later we were both involved in an effort to revive the Washington State Chapter of Artists Equity. She was a founding member of the Northwest Figurative Artists Alliance.
