The extraordinary oil paintings of Professor Neal Wilson are bound for venues that will take him on the path to The Museum of Modern Art. Here in Santa Fe, we are privileged to exhibit this important work exclusively at La Posada’s Gallery Collection.
Mr. Wilson has lead a long life of academia, all the while compiling an amazing collection of his acrylic, mixed-media, abstracts. He has accumulated dozens of prestigious prizes and is now, in his later years, with attention focusing on his talent, he is making his work available to the public.
