I recently went on a trip to San Miguel de Allende with a group of 15 artists. Frank Gardner put the whole trip together for us, including finding us a great place to stay, Casa Heyne. The villa was great, approx 16,ooo sq ft., with a cooking and cleaning staff. We were very spoiled. Paintings from this trip will be in two exhibitions in February. The first is on February 12th at the Cape Cod Museum of Art, in Dennis, MA. The second show is at Addison Art Gallery on February 13th, in Orleans, MA. The following pictures are in no particular order, all of the artists in the photos should have links to the right of the page, if not write me and ask for their websites.
