It's been a while since I commented on the lack of progress of the gallery. We have retained one of Marfa's expert contractors, Billy Marginot, to help finish the project. He hopes to finish his current job in Sept. or Oct. & start on the gallery.
He predicts that the remainder of the work might take about 6 months, depending on the complexity of some of the details that have yet to be decided.
So, we believe and hope that although 2013 was a bust, that the building may in fact be ready in the spring of 2014. This is a long haul, but the end is in sight.
In order to maintain some minor presence, I will be open for the Chinati Open House Weekend in October in the gallery's old space in the STAY marfa apartments. Because Chinati's temporary exhibit will focus on prints, the gallery will show a wide variety of Judd prints from its inventory.
