Word has been received from Polly Fox and Dexter Ing, publishers of Ink & Gall, who suffered a devastating fire last May that destroyed everything they had. They have been building a house and studio themselves with the help of friends, with donations of funds and materials. They have a temporary studio now and can marble with one or two students and they have a class scheduled for September at the Taos Institute of Art. They hope to again publish Ink & Gall but are still some time away from being able to do so. They would like the input of those interested. Their address remains: P.O.Box 1469, Taos, NM 87571, ph. & fax: 505 586-1607
