Richard Alan Nichols: Historic Studios Show
The events have shifted to online shows.
There will be no group paintouts or opening receptions.
Social distancing guidelines and masks are mandated throughout the state of New Mexico. Further details will be updated for artists as changes emerge.
We are in an evolving situation, but here's what I'm are hoping for; that we become a better, kinder and stronger group of people.
