pictures from an exhibition

some photos from the exhibit now up at the nüart gallery, in santa fe.
the show looks beautiful- it's always a surprise to see all the work together, on clean white walls, outside of the squalor of the studio

last minute -signing the paintings

Spring branches and willow withies, gathered from a beaver pond in a wildlife area outside the city, the afternoon of the opening.  Leaving the park, I realized I couldn't find the keys to my rental car….. Racing back along trails, eyes darting back and forth, by a miracle of providence, I found them at the edge of a marsh.
Happiest moment of my life! Zipped back just in time to change and make the opening.  Phew!

with a beautiful bouquet from my mother and sister (thanks!)

Hi Claire,
Love your work at Nuart Gallery. I drove down to deliver my show which opens this friday. I am so sorry that I somehow missed YOUR opening. I would have definitely driven down for it. I really am fascinated by your surfaces and color systems that you are using. I was working with some similar ideas in the mid-1980's which is why - I think - I am so drawn to your work. This body of work you have been doing is absolutely stellar.

I don't know if you are aware of my collage museum project but would be very happy if you would be willing to donate a collage or two to represent you in the collection. see the show that is currently hanging here:

all the best to you!

A belated congratulations on your show. I'm sorry I missed it, but it looks like it was amazing showcase of your work. The scale of your paintings is wonderful.
