"Letters from 151 Canal Street, NYC and 240 S. Broadway, LA is part of a series of horizon lines that I created in the 1980s. For this artwork, I gained access to rooftops in Manhattan and downtown Los Angeles where I pivoted in one spot to draw each 360° view that surrounded me. The first location in this print is the Canal Street studio of Loretta Dunkelman, a founding member of A.I.R. Gallery, the first all-female cooperative art gallery in the United States. The second location is the magically creative Victor Clothing Building where I had my studio from 1980- 87." - Kim Abeles
