Discussion takes place at the gallery in front of the backdrop of Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory, William Blake's first exhibition at Gallery Victor Armendariz.  At only 28 years old, William has participated in over 40 Civil War reenactment events usually as the artist correspondent Winslow Homer. He will be the Artist in Residence at the Gettysburg National Park this summer.
