I was honored to be asked to donate a painting for the NMSU Collector’s Auction Fundraiser, Gym to Gem. I was happy to be included in this worthy cause.
The current New Mexico State University fine arts building is a converted gymnasium from the 1930s or something. The painting studio is on top of the former swimming pool and the graduate art studios have cement steps in the middle of them. The building has been in need of refurbishment for several decades.
The fundraiser was this past Saturday and I was glad I could contribute in some small way to this project.
