Anna Vavagiakis, 1928–2000

When Robert Bunkin & Jenny Tango asked me to participate in the Parent Portraits exhibition, I took up the task of digging up some old portfolios. What I found were many sketches I did of my mother between 1974 and 1978, the last years I was living in my parents’ house. Three of these sketches will be on view in the exhibition.
