It was a little bit of a secret, and it wasn't too expensive. Those things are very attractive to artists. I loved the idea of the scene that was evolving. And it became this fire that people came to warm their brains and minds and senses on. The Lavender Bay group was definitely a collection of artists, Garry Shead, Tim Storrier, Brett Whiteley and many, many people. The Lavender Bay pictures are really a celebration of the beauty of this bay and being here and living here. People can look at a sort of a bit of history that's been made there now, I think I've described it as a sort of a ... bayside bohemia.


Early life and education

Sharp was born in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1942. He grew up in Elwood, Indiana. After graduating from Wendell Willkie High School in 1960, he attended DePauw University in 1961. He then transferred and graduated cum laude from the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University in 1964. He then went on to do graduate work at Exeter College, Oxford University in 1966 before returning to Georgetown University to earn his Ph.D. in 1974, when he was elected to Congress.

Later years

During his years in Congress, Sharp participated in the passage of major energy legislation. As chairman of the Energy and Power Subcommittee, he played key roles in the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments and the 1992 Energy Policy Act. He was a member of the National Research Council Committee on Effectiveness and Impact of Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) Standards, which issued its major report in 2001. He also chaired the Secretary of Energy's Electric Systems Reliability Task Force, which issued its major report in 1998.

In 1988 and 1990, Sharp defeated future U.S. Vice President Mike Pence.[1] Sharp chose not to seek re-election in the 1994 elections, and was succeeded by Republican David M. McIntosh.[2]

Sharp went on to serve as director of the Institute of Politics at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government. In 2005, he became president of the nonpartisan think tank Resources for the Future in Washington, D.C.

Sharp serves on the Board of Directors of the Duke Energy Corporation and as vice chair on the Board of the Energy Foundation. He is the congressional chair for the National Commission on Energy Policy, is a member of The National Academies’ Committee on America’s Climate Choices and the Blue Ribbon Commission on America's Nuclear Future. Before joining RFF, Sharp was Senior Policy Advisor of the Washington, DC based law and public policy firm Van Ness Feldman.[3]
