New in the WDBA: Ann Walsh

A late but welcome addition to the Walter Darby Bannard Archive: Ann Walsh, a catalogue essay for the artist's 2015 exhibition in Roanoke. (You may recall that I too have written about her, and in doing so referenced Darby's essay.)
Darby didn't write prolifically in his last years. I'm glad of this, as it gave him more time to paint, and many of the later paintings are extraordinary. But I'm sure, despite the absence of material in the archive between 2009 and 2015, that he wrote something during that time. If readers have any insights into the matter, please get in touch.
I dreamed last night that I was helping Darby install a new show. The paintings were really good.
