Twice in recent years, Nick Bridge traveled to Antigua, Guatemala to study Spanish. He took along his sketchbook, drawing pen and water based paints to capture a bit of the local color and was alternately stunned and charmed by the ancient cobblestone streets, Catholic churches partially in ruins because of earthquakes, and the strong Mayan presence. Returning home from his travels, he found himself unable to cease working with the extensive collection of images he had acquired. This exhibition is the resulting images. Nick has captured the feel and essence of the area in gouache and pen and ink.
