Featured Letter

A believer

Thanks for the wonderful article on Jon Khoury and other artists at the Cottonwood gallery.

Recently I wanted to sign up for a class by the talented Al B Johnson. I called Cottonwood after hours expecting to leave a message, and was surprised when Jon answered the phone. I explained that I was very excited about taking Al B's class but that I didn't drive at night and preferred to study during the day. I almost cried when Jon said, "Sign up for the class and I will see that you get there if I have to drive you myself!"
