I want to create works that show, as Blake said,”an infinity in a grain of sand.” I like the idea of an art that is multi-cultural and polyvalent, connecting then and now, here and there, us and them.” Professor Drees work can be seen on the Web at www.dedree.com and the Maryland State Arts Council Registry, and of course, on this blog.
