As many of you know, I’m represented by Hand Artes Gallery, a beautiful, contemporary gallery here in Truchas, New Mexico (see previous post Disparate Pieces). Bill and Margaret Franke own and operate the gallery in a gorgeous, old, adobe house which is also their home.
Recently, Bill decided to rehang the center room which is, actually, the dining room. His idea was to pull together many of his favorite pieces as though the space were simply his home and not also a gallery. He invited me by the other day to see the result.
It is so very difficult to get photos that truly show you what an elegant room he created, but it is stunning—a lovely space in which to have a dinner party.
I was flattered to see many of my pieces there, hanging alongside the masterful works of Sheila Keefe, Malabika Goldbar, Edward Briseno-Mills and Larry and Nancy Buechley.
Winter is beginning to show itself here in the high elevations of northern New Mexico and we’re all doing our individual versions of nesting. This was Bill making ready for winter, I think.
Soon a newcomer will be arriving to Hand Artes Gallery. Kim Moss, a Sante Fe artist, will be assisting Bill and Margaret with the gallery throughout this winter season. Welcome Kim!
