Dear Model,

I long to see the light, diffused by the overcast sky, wrap around the landscape. Illumination reveals the topography and shows us variations in the landscape. These variations form hiding places that relax into each other. Only a map can tell us where these places are. I have never been to this place. We won’t go very far, and the weather will be overcast, providing an ideal backdrop for our time together. Time is what we have in this cool place. Gray tones give way to rich colors. I ask not that you give your heart to me but to the time we have together, to  make images that will be impressed upon our memories forever.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
