    Dear Barry,

    I hope this email finds you well.

    You have been on my mind. Since retiring as Professor Emeritus and former chair of the Department of Art & Art History at Spelman I have had much more time to produce and exhibit my work. I had a solo at Hammonds House last year and another solo at the Southwest Art Center here in Atlanta. I have also been lecturing, curating exhibitions and had one short residency. I have a new website Once you have had a chance to review it please let me know what you think. I have never presented my work at the Museum of NCAAA and would love to do so. I look forward to hearing from you. Saludos, Arturo Lindsay
