    betsy lohrer hall suggested that you might be interested in showing work in my may/june exhibit in san pedro called “unexpected activities” together with three or four other artists. angels’ ink gallery, at 366 w. 7th shows only drawings or works on paper. opening tonight is “papered over” with pieces by terry braunstein, angie bray, joyce dallal, susanna meters, christine nguyen and pam posey.
    want to write me back and we’ll talk about it?
    look forward to hearing from you, robin
