See the works of nine different artists from Baldwin City, Paola, Overland

New Mexico. We will present paintings and photographs from Sandy  


Cardens, Christy Carlisle, Verna Crane, Paul Knapp, Jacqui Lichius, Bobbi


Sharbutt, Dawn Thomas and Sharron Spence and New Mexico inspired


pottery by Sandy Davidson Tugman.




These are primarily artists who spent a week in Taos in 2015 painting and


photographing together. A few of these artists have been going to the


same painting retreat for over twenty years.
