"Paintings and Things"
The exhibit not only features the unique stain paintings by this El Paso artist but gives the art-lover or the art-curious a glimpse into her creative process and cultural ties. The "things" part of the exhibition are some of Stapher-Thomas' collected objects that have inspired and touched her heart. Whimsical animals, local landscapes and totally imaginative images, this is a show that will appeal to kids of all ages.
