Drawings on exhibition at 203 Fine Art in Taos, New Mexico
Five of my drawings are on exhibition in the Spring Exhibition at 203 Fine Art in Taos, New Mexico, through April 30, 2021.  The large drawing is a frottage of the mat that Agnes Martin used to stand on while painting, so it's fitting that it is on view in the town where she lived during her last decades.  Walk-in hours are Tuesday-Thursday, 10am-5pm, and appointments are also available on any day.
