  • A friend in Marin, Laura Lengyel, a visual artist, who has done a fine job of dealing with a large collection of the work of Gary Schafer, who was possibly as well known as your grandmother. Just google " Laura Lengyel artist " or, " Laura La Foret Lengyel " Am sure she would agree to discussing painting preservation techniques, Especially for Women's Art ! Let me know if, or when, you would like me to set up that connection for you. Am very sure she'd have some hot tips for you.

Maya's collection

  • Besides, drawings and a few etchings, (there is hardly any color work) the 'scope' includes several banker boxes of carousels of kodachrome slides that are fairly well organized.
