The show opened this past Sunday.

David was mentioned in the article Museum Action Lures a Crowd.

As the evening wrapped, Bob and Recky Brannon, of Scottsdale, Ariz., had bought eight pieces. They began to buy art as newlyweds but were avid independent collectors while single. “We were just dating when we discovered that we had both, independently, bid on C.J. Wells’ “Portrait of Frida Kahlo” at the same auction,” said Recky. The couple bought Gomez’s guard along with David Milton’s “Homage to Hoppy.”
