An artist's vision of local inns and fashion
As darkness descends, he walks the halls, lingers in the lobby, listens, looks, feels, breathes in the past and present. This artist in residence offers his vision from within historic Red Lion Inn, then Wheatleigh and Tourists hotels. In these moments, in those spaces, time stands still.
