During the summer of 2013, I traveled to Taos, New Mexico. In the two months I spent there, I found that the rich culture and artistic traditions of the Southwest inspired me to create work about the landscape and our place in it. These diptychs explore the textures of the landscape using the earth itself from places that moved me—Plaza Blanca or “The White Place,” where Georgia O’Keefe once created work among the limestone columns jutting into the sky and Box Canyon, which offered the distinct notion of the sublime inside a canyon of remarkable colors.

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 2020 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 for another year, 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.
