Gregory Botts

Gregory Botts divides his time between studios in N.Y.C. and New Mexico. He paints site paintings “Along the Road,” traveling to New Mexico each summer. This adventure has supplied a blog and the writing of his ongoing poetry. It is the raw material which informs his studio work in Brooklyn each winter. GregoryBotts.com.
