This will be my first art show since moving my home and studio from Colorado to New Mexico this past March. I will have several Sugar Skull pieces on display at The Church in Tijeras, New Mexico. I will have both prints and originals including a sculpture piece included in the show. The show will also include a fundraiser / silent auction with art and accessories donated by the participating artists. Proceeds from the silent auction will go the Seidel family who's home next door to The Church recently burned down. This will be a really fun event... live music,...
