Since we were already planning to go to Baltimore in February to visit Mary at MICA, we decided it would be fun to take the train to New York, catch up with Dudley and see her exhibit. I'm so glad we did.
Dudley met us at the gallery, opening it just for us as it is normally closed on Tuesday. The space was in an old warehouse in Chelsea, a part of NYC that we had never explored. Her art looked great in the space.

We are proud owners of three of Dudley's earlier pieces -- and Maggie has one also. It has been our treat to know Dudley for a very long time and to watch her evolve as an artist.
After our private tour of her exhibit, we took a brisk walk on the High Line before checking out the Chelsea Market, a cozy bar for a beer, and then a fun communal dining experience at Pastis.
