Frank Harlow, longtime Los Alamos resident, picked up his first paintbrush in 1968. “I just loved the idea of painting,” he said. Thirty-nine years and 750 paintings later, Harlow has accumulated a large art collection and is sharing it with county.Harlow donated 22 paintings to Los Alamos County, which were hung in the Upstairs Art Gallery at Mesa Public Library Thursday.“Los Alamos has been my home for many, many years so I would really like to see a bunch of them really preserved forever here in Los Alamos,” he said.Harlow added, “(I’m) happy with my life. Los Alamos has been a fabulous place for me.”“I’m thrilled Mr. Harlow has chosen to give these wonderful paintings to the county,” said Art in Public Places board member Paula Barkley, “It was an extra-ordinarily generous gift.”Harlow said he approached Stephanie Johnson of Art in Public Places, about the donation. He said she was very “enthusiastic” and the county council approved the board’s reccomendation to accept donation on Nov. 28.Harlow’s work is visible in other places in the state.
