Works in Progress
Numerous works of art are being created to premiere at the 2016 Windows to the West art sale and exhibition. Some of our artists are giving us a glimpse into this creative process in our Works in Progress blog. Learn about the genesis of specific pieces and how the work evolves, as these artists share insights about their medium of choice.
