Marla Allison New Mexico painter

This time of year I dream of New Mexico if I cannot actually travel (I’ve been five times).

The Wheelwright Museum is hosting a benefit event. Marla, who is from the Laguna Pueblo, is one of several artists donating their work for the event.

This photo of Marla Allison is by Jim Gautier.

This link or pingback shows Terry and I with Marla and several others during Indian Market 2011, at La Fonda.

I don’t collect her work but am a fan. Quickly fact-checking this basic post sent me on a digression to Ah’reek Marshall, also known as Aric Marshall, a guitarist from LA who was part of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and is the inspiration for a Marla Allison painting called “Dual Duel”. Add this to my queue of things I will have to look into.
