Artist Elizabeth McIntosh has a new exhibition of paintings opening at Diaz Cntemporary on May 20, the title of which (A Good Play) is drawn from Robert Louis Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses.

(Robert Louis Stevenson)

We built a ship upon the stairs
All made of the back-bedroom chairs,
And filled it full of sofa pillows
To go a-sailing on the billows.

We took a saw and several nails,
And water in the nursery pails;
And Tom said, “Let us also take
An apple and a slice of cake;”—
Which was enough for Tom and me
To go a-sailing on, till tea.

We sailed along for days and days,
And had the very best of plays;
But Tom fell out and hurt his knee,
So there was no one left but me.
