Art in the cryptic sense of strand..

Being a graduate student has the advantage that, though you don't make a huge salary working sweathouse hours, other people sometimes send you to nice places to talk about your work . . and so I arrived in Santa Fe for a week in January..

Someone told me Santa Fe has the most galleries per sq. mile of land than any other city in the US. I believe them. I was disappointed with what I saw the first two days . . . too much art fit for the southwestern-decor bathroom (the kind where I wish someone would make a cactus cover for the john -- i'm convinced people would buy it). However after poking around the western side of town I quickly changed my mind.
