While it was a challenging year - and most of these challenges follow us into 2021 - we are grateful for the many good, positive things that did happen in 2020. We are thankful for the perspective last year brought and for the greater awareness of common cause. More people voted in 2020 than ever before, and more people donated to charities and embraced the principles of social justice than ever before. We somehow became more engaged even though we were more isolated than ever. I was empowered in many ways, and I began to find new pathways to reach out to all of you as well.
In 2020, people also bought more art online than ever before.
Who knows what the trends will be in 2021. Hopefully, we can all meet in galleries, or at auction houses or art fairs this year. I'd like nothing more than to stand in a long line in a crowded Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York next Fall to check my coat. Yes, I look forward to both crowded museums and Winter. I like warm weather, but 50 degrees in January has to stop.
Here in Santa Fe we will hope to have an actual opening at my space with good food and music and even better art.
But until then, we will continue to reach out online. Keep an eye out for updates to my website coming soon: Recent Acquisitions, Blogs, and an online exhibition focusing on Surrealism.
We will also start producing some video content on You Tube and you may see me on another production in 2021...stay tuned.
Most importantly, stay well and stay hopeful for what this year will bring. There is always so much to enjoy and we look forward to sharing art and travel and our thoughts on collecting with you.
