When artists buy art

When an artist buys original artwork by another artist, I think that it is a special honor. At least I am always highly honored when I sell one of my drawings to a fellow artist.

So you must understand that I am not only honored, but somewhat dazed to find out that Ida Applebroog has bought one of my drawings for her collection.

New name

The Rockville Arts Place, which has been temporarily located in Gaithersburg, MD while their great new space in being built in downtown Rockville, will be renamed VisArts once the move takes place.

The new space looks terrific, and will certainly be one of the key exhibition spaces around the Greater DC area.


To DC's former JET Gallery's co-owner, Thomas Robertello, who has just opened the Thomas Robertello Gallery in Chicago.

Good luck Tom!
