-"Leopold Bloom" by Deco
In the Portal
As we open our Under the Influence exhibit, Albuquerque artist Michael Andryc will be opening his solo show, "Haunted by Picasso Through the Streets of Warsaw".

"I had always wanted to be an artist or a writer and have spent most of my life doing both. In taking this path, I was heavily influenced at an early age by my father. He was a wonderful storyteller and held artists and writers in high regard.
I am a self-taught artist. The painters I most admire are: Chagall, Picasso, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Henri Rousseau, Modigliani – although what I know I have learned from others too numerous to mention...
...I have worked at odd jobs, struggled and done without, but in the end it’s been the talent that God has given me to develop that has seen me through. I am thankful for all the people who have helped me, bought, enjoyed, appreciated and honored my work. At this late date, I look back at all the paintings I have done and I am grateful that I turned my life in this direction."
-Michael Andryc
