Not that it really matters.... interesting, when this show started at the Georgia O'Keefe museum in Santa Fe, they heavily advertised that this was the first time the two had been shown together, which I knew was not true. The Museum of New Mexico had done a similar show back in the early 80's, probably somewhat smaller but stunning none-the-less. I wrote them and informed them about the earlier show. Their response was curt and defensive saying that well a show of this size had never been done before (though size was not in their original claim) bringing these particular works together etc. At least on their website they later modified their claim of the first time together. It appears now that they have dropped that claim altogether. Anyway it should be well worth seeing. Two of my all time favorite interpreters of the New Mexico landscape.

OH boy!
I'm planning to visit family and friends in that window of time for the show. I will make it a point to see it. The wife wants to see the Egyptian relic show so I'll have her drop me off. I rather see paintings and photos then some dusty old relics.

I saw this in Florida a few months ago - very much worth seeing.
