It was a very special night at New Grounds Printshop and Gallery and Matrix Fine Art. We celebrated Nicholas Hudak's first solo art show and the arrival of Shinji Ando and Takahiko Hayashi for their second and third trip to Albuquerque New Mexico.

Guests arrive to check out Nick's show.
Nick set up for a demonstration before the show.  To watch the demo click the links at the bottom of the page.
More of Nick's art was laid out for sale in the New Grounds classroom.
We also had a book signing by Ray Masman and Director Regina Held. The New Grounds Manual for Non-Toxic Etching is available for purchase!
