Judith—The current exhibition is outstanding and includes work from a terrific Native American artist, Michael Namingha. I hope your group will enjoy it.  I will check with our curatorial team to see what their schedule is like for the 12th. I will be out of town, so unfortunately not have the chance to say hello in person, but please let me extend the warmest welcome from afar!

Kind regards, Cathy
