and one of her showcases was the Brackenwood Gallery in Langley, Washington

Artist's comment: Gail and I communicated for many months and when I suggested that she try the new 2011 Collection prototype, No. 101X, she came to the shop and printed one like it (the real one was making its debut in St. Louis on that day). She was pleased, said she'd take it when 101X got back to Seattle. In late April she revisited Seattle, printed on the traveling press, and decided to take it so she could use it in her upcoming show in Langley, the Brackenwood Art Gallery, on Whidbey Island.
