One of the greatest shows I've NEVER seen. More picture grammar per centimetre here than I've seen. Thanks Michael.

I have often said if I had it to do all over again, I would study and collect only Shaker and Pre-reservation Native American Painted Objects. What has become the continental United States has not produced better. In ANY artistic medium. Jim (Dull Tool Dim Bulb)
