"Art of the Spirit"

AUSTIN — Red River Arts is proud to present Art of the Spirit, a 30-year retrospective of artist Michael Washer. Working in a variety of media, including: etching, photogravure, graphite on paper, crayon batik, and a special technique he developed called oil constructions, where paper is built up into three dimensions and painted in oil.
