 Off to Telluride, Colorado to install another showing of my traveling exhibit "Roots".


September: A vacation...and musical and art trip.....from downtown L.A. to the beach at Del Mar, California. Saw the L.A. venue of the Melody Gardot U.S. tour in which our son, Mitchell (second from the right) played guitar.  After the U.S. tour, they are off to Europe for 2+ months.  Fabulous!

On this trip I visited my gallery in Bergamot Station, Santa Monica - Lora Schlesinger.  Then when in Del Mar I stopped at UCSD Mandeville Special Collections where 5 paperworks found a home.  The Athenaeum Music and Arts Library was also on my itinerary.  Beach time with a little fog and alot of sun warm waters.
