Fire Destroys Bothwell Studio – Update!
• Sculptors Christina and Robert recently lost everything in their barn/studio when it burned to the ground.
• Heller Gallery, Habatat Galleries, and Austin Art Projects have worked together to create an online exhibition from surviving artworks that are in their three galleries. All proceeds from sales will go to Christina and Robert. Should you have been considering acquiring a sculpture by Christina this would be a wonderful time to do so! Please feel free to contact any of the three galleries to discuss works or any questions you may have.
