Windows on the World Touchstone Gallery Member Show
Touchstone member artists turn their gaze to windows; those looking to the outside; those looking inward; those that are cloudy; those that are clear; those that are broken. They express a multitude of views in painting, original prints, sculpture, ceramics, collage, and drawing.
