The Greatest ‘Secret Santa’ Ever?!! 

What would artist Anne Blair Brown give James Richards for Christmas? And what would Kate Long Stevenson give Dorothy Shain?

In the spirit of the holidays, Meyer Vogl Gallery orchestrated its very own (hypothetical!) Secret Santa. Each gallery artist was assigned another artist from the gallery and was asked, “If you could give him or her one work from the gallery, what would it be?”

Here’s what they picked:

From Laurie Meyer — to Anne Blair Brown
Afternoon in Cassis by James Richards
